MUNICH and FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Just in time for the International Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, the Self-Publishing-Platform http://www.BookRix.com has announced a groundbreaking innovation. Beginning in October, the company will no longer charge for their eBook-distribution-services, allowing authors to publish eBooks for free via BookRix and distribute them to all major eBook stores such as Amazon, Apple iBookstores, Thalia, Kobo, Barnes & Noble etc.
"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.
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 500k members. Writers can distribute 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 http://www.BookRix.com community without the support of a traditional publishing house. The advantage for the authors is obvious: BookRix is a one-stop-shop. Authors eBooks are distributed to dozens of eBook-stores through a single provider responsible for eBook delivery and account management.
