More good news for self-publishers

In another article from Galley Cat, self-publishers will soon have another venue for publishing their books as Publishers Weekly gets into the self-publishing business.  This is a joint venture between PWxyz and Mediapolis.

BookLife will go live on May 29 2014 at the BookExpo America.  I don’t know how much this service will charge, but they will offer cover design, editing, the publishing of a physical book and marketing.  To read the article, click here.

Here’s an opportunity for self-publishers


I read this recently on GalleyCat.  Are you interested in getting your ebooks into libraries across the US?  The digital platform, BiblioBoard, has teamed up with a trade publication called Library Journal for the purpose of distributing and reading self-published books through libraries.

This service is free to self-published authors, but Library Journal has to select your book first.  If selected, they will distribute your book to participating libraries.
