@JaveerBaker it is recommended, as many people still prefer print books. Creating a print book isn't that hard, and I suggest you do it

Janine, can you please make this clear: Are they offering you a print contract? What does "print Ebook" mean? Or should it have been "print, eBook and audio" ? :)

comment What factors to consider when choosing an e-book platform?
Good answer. Rights is the most important thing, as far too many scams, even run by "respectable" companies. See davidgaughran.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/…

comment Can a self publishing author use a Pen name/Pseudonym?
@Vass, IANAL, but anything you write is automatically copyrighted. New authors spend so much time worrying about people stealing their work, when the real problem is death by obscurity.

comment For Kindle, are hard paragraph breaks that serious?
It only matters if you enter KDP select. And what do you mean you can't get rid of them? Is Word not removing them?
