Yes, You DO Need Your OWN Website That YOU Control!

Hi Angela,

I am interested in (publishing) both print and electronic books. It seems I need to set up a website for sales. Would this be advisable??

Thanks so much!


While most POD publishers (not all) offer a specific page on their site that features your book, you can also direct buyers to your book listing on,, and many other online stores…provided your POD publisher offers Ingram distribution.

However, to maintain complete control of all your future marketing and sales, I STRONGLY recommend all authors have their own website. Read why HERE.
