The idea of “Going Wide” refers to making your books available from a variety of sources instead of limiting them to only a single vendor. Many authors agree to exclusivity deals without really understanding what it is they’re giving up, such as allowing their eBooks to be available from libraries, or even being eligible to be included in some of the biggest bestseller lists like those from the New York Times or USA Today.
Erin Wright runs the biggest online Facebook group for authors that publish wide, with over 11,000 members, which is why she’s the go-to expert on the subject. Today, she sits down with Fully Booked to discuss what it means to go wide, what the benefits and options are, who should or shouldn’t do it, and so much more.
