I love to make Good News available as widely and as freely as possible. This Blog gives you some suggestions. It’s neither the first nor the last word on free Christian publishing. But I hope it helps you.

Download PDF – You Can Publish for Free
You can publish and market your books for free with Amazon/Kindle. My book tells you how. Amazon makes their money by advertising and selling your book for you. You can buy your book at the author’s discount. My book gives you the basic details, updated to the current Kindle Direct Publishing information.
A huge advantage of Kindle Direct Publishing is that you can upload new editions, or corrections, also for free.
Digital eBooks are easiest to do now and are read more than printed books because they are cheap and delivered immediately to computers, tablets and smartphones. Just upload your Word file to Kindle! Add a free cover you create with Cover Creator.
Go to Kindle Direct Publishing (an Amazon company) and follow the links.
What you publish there goes on Amazon and Kindle for free. Expanded distribution adds your book(s) to The Book Depository with free airmail worldwide, and your books are listed on other distributors, some of which get listed on Amazon as well.
You can add your books as a PDF book to your social media outlets and on WordPress, as I have done here with this one.
Upload your PDF version on your WordPress page to Add/Media – preferably with hyperlinks for readers to use, eg chapter headings. Make a WordPress page for every book, as I have done with the Renewal Journal books.
Amazon markets your book automatically. Add Amazon links wherever you can – to your WordPress page, and on your social media.
You can also promote your books on many sites as noted below. I find promoting free eBooks (with Kindle Select) or free PDF books the best. The free PDF books get the most response!
Here is a list of useful Facebook Christian book lovers’ links you may like to follow, with approximate numbers of members shown for each one, as at December 2018. The pages with huge numbers of followers give only temporary exposure to your book because they get huge numbers of posts added!
