If you have published (or had published for you) a e-book, where did you publish it to?

Some context:

We are trying to build some tools to assist in searching for quality black and POC based sci-fi and fantasy books (novels and SSs) across multiple sites. Since these are not pre-made categories in Barnes and Nobles, Amazon or Smash-words, how are you labeling your works. Tagging with key words? How are you (or your marketers) marketing your works in the digital store front?

Welcome all comments. MLabs.

When I started out, I published on Amazon and Barnes and Noble myself, then Draft 2 Digital for the Apple store and other outlets. Then they launched Kindle Unlimited and I went exclusive to Amazon because it was more lucrative.

My four science fiction novels are published by a Canadian publisher, MuseItUp Publishing. 

A number of short stories published through Tranquillity Publishing in the U.K., but they're now defunct. Looking for a new outlet.

My Stuff is published on AMAZON (naturally) and on SMASHWORDS.

Smashwords is a POWERFUL tool because it publishes everywhere else (except Amazon) for you. 

My books are published on Amazon, key words used adventure, bisexual, exploration, extraterrestrial, shojo, starship, time travel, categories Alternate history, Exploration, Space fleet, Space Opera, Women's fiction, Time Travel and used tag words in the description, Feminist Space Opera and New content 2016

Do you get more sales on Amazon or Smashwords? Right now I'm exclusively on Amazon. I'm wondering if it would make more sense to publish elsewhere?

I published on Amazon. And the keywords I used are:
Alien Invasion, Strong Female Lead, Dreams used to invade Earth, Diverse Science Fiction, Alternate Universe, Parallel Universe, Afrofuturism Science Fiction Aliens African American Lead Characters

Following this with interest folks.

Hello all. I'm published on a site called bookrix and u have the option to sell it or just post it. If u opt to sell it, it gets placed in amazon, google play and other online stores.
I use the word afrofantasy, but not sure if that's really a thing yet.

I've published 3 books on iBooks. Their tools allow you to create books that are interactive tools embedded with hyperlinks, charts, bubbles, gifs, etc. You can even create textbooks.

Kindle and Smashwords. Since my previous works were non-fiction, I used a combination of category and keywords. 

Thanks everyone, really great to get these replies after all this time!

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
