We want your books, not your money: Free Publishing at BookRix!
It’s finally happened. BookRix has reached the pinnacle of awesomeness: Starting in October, the eBook publishing and distribution services are going to be completely free. Just in time for the International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, BookRix has announced this groundbreaking news. And no, there isn’t a catch, so stop asking!
The BookRix Team realizes that authors need a free entry for their books into shops like Amazon, Apple iBookstore, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc., to help create a free eBook market. Now there’s nothing to stop us writers from publishing every single story we’ve ever created. “Why not?” we’ll say. “It’s free!”
“Authors and their eBooks need free and uncomplicated access to all the important online shops, to co-create a free eBook market,” says Gunnar Siewert, CEO and cofounder. “We want the authors’ books and not their money.” In addition, BookRix will be reimbursing all authors who previously paid for eBook publication with the company!
I think I just heard a collective *Ding-ding!*
Here’s a little BookRix history, just for you:
Launched as a small start-up company in May 2008, BookRix has become one of the largest international book communities of its time. BookRix connects eBook distribution with Social Media on a single platform that houses over 500,000 members. Writers can share their work on BookRix, while taking advantage of their built in online community of readers and writers. By doing this, authors have the unique ability to market their work and engage potential fans within the BookRix community without the support of a traditional publishing house.
The advantage for the authors is obvious: BookRix is a one-stop-shop. Your eBooks are distributed to dozens of eBook-stores through a single provider responsible for eBook delivery and account management.
If you want to learn more, you can contact our customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can just hold your horses and read the rest of the information at BookRix when the free service is launched in October.
