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.
