Self-published through All Romance eBooks!

I belatedly discovered that I could upload my two independent short stories for sale at ARe Books!

I had published both CUT AND THRUST and ROLL OF THE DICE through Smashwords and 1Place for Romance a few months ago, but was under the misapprehension that only Publishers could sell through ARe and it was only a comment by another author on a list that made me understand that I could be a publisher!

So after some quick research I published both short stories today through ARe Books, CUT AND THRUST for just S1.49 and ROLL OF THE DICE for only £0.99 :





  1. Thanks so much! I really appreciate you answering my questions. Good luck with your self pub endeavors!!

  2. Hi again, Silvie! I used my author name as my company name. As I am not in the US my Tax information does not apply, I pay that at home, though there is a tax question on the application form. You have to do all the formatting yourself. If it helps, I only had pdf copies of my stories, but I used Calibre to convert that to various other ebook formats. One point, when you name your files, make sure there are no spaces etc as it will not accept them unless they conform to their criteria.

  3. Thanks Stevie! Two other questions: Can you simply use your own name as your company and your own personal Tax ID? Do you need to create all the file formats yourself and upload them or does ARe format the file? Thanks so much for your help. I’ve just started investigating self publishing for some of my older books and I’m trying to take in all the data I can right now.

  4. Hi Silvia! Sure I’ll help any way I can, but let me say it was a fairly simple process. I clicked the link at the top of ARe Books home page ‘Publisher/Author’ and it takes you straight to the page where the FAQ are listed and answered. Also included on that page is the link to apply for publisher status. After completing that I heard back in about an hour that I was accepted as a publisher and once you sign in to your publisher page it leads you through the upload process. If you still have questions, fire away:)

  5. Hi Stevie! Congratulations on publishing through ARe! I write both gay and het romance and I found your article as I was investigating the same thing – whether an individual could publish there. If you would be willing to answer a few questions about your experience, let me know. Thanks.
