How to sell your ebook in ANSA Bookshop
First established at Delta State University, Abraka in 2007 (and officially recognised by the school's authorities in 2010), ANSA is dedicated to instilling the culture of reading & writing among children, teenagers & younger adults.
We hope to achieve this by providing a platform for young aspiring authors to promote their literary work in the best way possible, which is why we created ANSA Bookshop. ANSA Bookshop is a platform where you can showcase your literary works (in ebook format) and earn a commission on every sale the book makes. So, in this guide we'll explain the steps involved in getting your ebook listed for sale on the ANSA Bookshop. Sit tight and follow.
