Can anyone help me get my head round something ?
I have set myself up as a UK publisher so I can use Lightning Source and as such have bought myself 10 ISBN numbers via Nielsen.
Nielsen have announced my book via their network so my first ISBN for my first book is now in the public domain (even though I had not finaliased the printing !) - As such it is showing up on many on-line booksellers.
I have now though accepted the proof from Lightning Source and the book is "Live" and thus in print via their POD service.
They also have announced my book through their channels.
As a customer then I would have 2 ways to get the book without knowing that there was a difference.
1) Buy it from a store that got to find out about it from Nielsen - This would mean I would get an order and would have to service that order (I don't fancy that)
2) Buy it from a store that are part of Lightning Source's distribution (Which I like as I just get the commission)
The questions is:- What do I tell Nielsen to change on their records so that ALL shops point towards Lightning Sources distribution chain ?
Can anyone help ?
