Where Is Baby's Belly Button? A Lift-the-Flap Book

I almost went with BookBaby last year but I was surprised they do NOT provide 1099 tax form to their publisher clients for royalties. When I addressed this with them, they indicated they are only processing payments. This is a problem.

I was on that fence having hired book baby for my e-book. After my experience with them I certainly would consider Createspace and several others but not book baby for my print book

I agree with ellen. DO NOT use Bookbaby unless you can’t manage to format your own writing. The fee is exorbitant and not even exact. I put in one book… guessing how many pages I had and likely overestimating and they took my fee like I was right. The next one I guess much lower than it probably was and they didn’t adjust it either. But that aside for the over $500 dollars I paid I earned $10 in revenue. Most of the ebook sellers they list with are so obscure no one goes there. Amazon if you go with them directly will at least try to generate reviews and interest in your book. Take my advice and save your money. Do a publisher is commission based. They will want the money flow so will work to get sales. Bookbaby gets paid up front by you then they are done. Their little book they give you to generate reviews and interest is a big waste of time and nothing but formatting will be what you get for your fees.

I wonder if anyone else has had similar experiences? I’m coming out with a third book in the series, and I don’t know that I’ll be going with bookbaby this time.
