Creators, you can now list your book here for FREE at The Illustrated Section. No more listing fees or commissions.
In exchange for the free listing, I am asking for just a few things in return:
- The PDF files be kept under 15 MB.
- Help promote The Illustrated Section.
I'm capping the file size to help make hosting more efficient, create easier downloads for customers, and make it easier to manage the site. However, if your file is too big, I'm not going to turn you away! I just ask that you make a $10 donation to help pay for site costs and the work to manage your file. In my experience, most books can be kept at 100-200 kb per page (that's 75-150 pages!) and still look good on most e-readers. Please do the best you can to optimize your file.
And for the other request – I would like to spread the word about the site not only to artists and creators, but to readers as well. In an effort to do so, I am reaching out to creators to help promote the The Illustrated Section to their audience via your websites, blogs, and social networks. It doesn't have to be anything big – just send a link out to your listing once it is up to help your readers know the site exists! The more readers that visit the site, the better for EVERYONE involved here in the store.
Here's to a great new year and lots of new books to read!
As part of my new strategy here for the site, I am opening up donations. If you enjoy the site and find it useful, you can contribute here.
