At least for the moment, creating the giveaway on GoodReads.com seems to have been a smart decision.

I should have either bought a block of ISBNs from Bowker or just used CreateSpace services to get my ISBN. What I did instead was just buy one ISBN from Bowker and now nickel and dimed my way into spending too much for a book that’s sold less than 30 copies so far.
I started researching self publishing in advance of my book, My Particular Friend, in the event that I could not find an agent or publisher for it. Along the way, I decided that I could experiment with the book I had already written, Good Cop, Dead Cop. And so I learned how to format the book for the Kindle, and then the Nook, and then Lulu and iBooks and finally for CreateSpace as a real paperback.
