New Kindle Direct Publishing offer highlights BookBaby’s expanded eBook program, optimized for indie author

 

Self published authors can now enjoy the best of both worlds: Maximizing reach and profits through the benefits of Amazon’s Kindle Select promotional tools, while making the most of BookBaby’s own industry-leading worldwide digital distribution. Best of all, this 1-2 eBook promo punch comes at no extra charge above BookBaby’s standard eBook publishing fees.  

Here’s how it works: BookBaby enrolls its authors into the wildly popular Kindle Select program, accessing a variety of Amazon marketing tools and promotions. Following a 90-day exclusive program on Amazon, BookBaby continues distribution to its extensive worldwide distribution network including iBooks, Google Play, Barnes & Noble and dozens more.

“This is steak AND lobster for self publishing clients. At last they don’t have to choose between Kindle or BookBaby,” says Steven Spatz, BookBaby President. “We feel this deal lets authors take full advantage of a wonderful service like Kindle Direct, while granting them full access to the broader marketplace worldwide.”

BookBaby is the only self publishing company offering this guided service through KDP, and another indication of the company’s commitment to independent writers seeking to create profitable eBook distribution programs. As part of its expanded digital book menu, BookBaby offers fast-turn ePub and .mobi conversions, including proofs to authors, book formatting, and cover design. Expanded sales reporting is now standard for all BookBaby authors, as well as enhanced BookShop eCommerce pages that return the highest royalty rates in publishing.

“We feel this deal gives authors the full advantage of a wonderful service like Kindle Direct, while granting them full access to the broader marketplace worldwide.”

This offering is the latest in a growing menu of options for independent authors, from affordable editing packages to marketing tools and consulting. BookBaby recently released its 2017 Self Publishing Survey results that highlighted strategies and tactics that led to self publishing success stories. The company will also host the first major self-published writers’ conference, the Independent Authors Conference (November 3-5, 2017), held in BookBaby’s hometown of Philadelphia.

“We strive to keep authors at the center of what we do, and we’re happy to be able to partner with Kindle Select to expand the distribution and marketing choices for writers working with us,” says Spatz.
