PubLaunch Crowd Funding
We began to experiment in 2015 with crowd funding. That experiment will continue in 2016 with the new start up company, PubLaunch. This is, to me, the ideal way to publish books. By finding people willing to help pay for the production of our books, we can then help the author both find her audience as well as reduce the wait for the cost of producing the book to be paid back. With this new pipeline distribution, authors will be able to make money from their books much faster.
In 2015 we began using a new distributor, INScribe Digital. A distributor’s job is to make sure our books get into bookstores, end up on the Amazon, iBook, Nook and Kobo sites, are eligible for as many deals on those sites as possible and, help us get the word out about our books to all the major libraries as well. Has anyone heard the words “Daily Deal” when they log onto Amazon? The only way we can have a chance at that is by working with a company that can make that happen.
INScribe has also begun a program for the distribution of Print-on-Demand books. Formerly, we were in the world’s largest bound book distribution program. Can you imagine how tiny we were in that world? That is not the case now. Having joined with a new program that will be distributing all of our bound books from January 2016 on, we are once again in the same capable hands as those who distribute our e-books, with all the same resources available for making our books successful.
We’re in the process of developing a marketing and promotion workbook for our authors to use. Be prepared to see much more of them and their books getting the kind of coverage they deserve.
