Self Publishing

You've written what you think is a pretty good novel or novella, and now you want to see it published to the wider world.

BUT...

  • You don't want the frustration of trying unsuccessfully to get an agent or publisher (and you may have already tried!)
  • You'd publish as an ebook, but don't want the hassle of converting formats, or the cost of getting someone to do it
  • You'd publish as an ebook on Amazon, but they'd try to force a minimum selling price, and you want to make this novella available free of charge to your readers

You can forget all this if you publish on NovellaWeb in 'Free Downloads'. Just email your manuscript as a Word document (see our guidelines below) and we'll take care of the rest.

We'll check for spellings and tidy up the format if necessary, and publish on this site. You retain full copyright, and can request to withdraw your book at any time. What's more, if you already have other publications on Amazon, we can add links to them.

All completely free of charge.

  • In your email, include a brief description of the novella, to entice the reader to download it!

  • If you already have publications for sale on Amazon, let us know the title and the ISBN or Amazon ASIN reference number, and we can include a link.
