Some time back, Dymocks, an Australian bookseller,announced that they were going to launch their own self-pub service.  That service is going to be up and running in about another 8 hours, and it’s called D Publishing Network. And yes, it does fleece authors. In fact, it might actually be a worse deal that the Book…

Editor’s Note: This is the 3rd post in a new series called Self-Pub Spotlight. This series is intended to find the warts of the competing self-pub services so authors can make an informed decision. The first 2 posts (Liibook, BookCountry) were written before I realized that this was a series. If you’re in digital publishing…

I came across another self publishing service last week, and while I don’t think it will become one of the giants in this niche it’s still worth a look. LiiBook has been open for close to a year now. It was launched by Federico Roma, a 30-year-old native of Argentina. As you can probably guess…

One of the hot stories this past week (that I didn’t get to because I was at a conference) was that Kobo planned to expand and launch their own publishing imprint. But did anyone mention that Kobo are also working on a new self-pub platform? No? I didn’t think so. There isn’t much detail available…

Hot on the heels of the news via Joe Konrath that NYT bestseller listed author Barry Eisler rejected a $500k publishing deal to self-pub, comes news at the other end of the spectrum. Self-publishing wunderkind (she’s hate that tag, I’m sure) Amanda Hocking, who is pulling in something in the vicinity of a million a year…

Jeez Louise. I think Joe Konrath alluded to this a few weeks back, but he recently published a lengthy interview with NYT bestselling author Barry Eisler. What did they talk about? Oh I don’t know – how about the fact that Eisler has recently rejected a half-million-dollar deal with a major publisher to go it…

Hi all. If you’ve been a Bookbee reader for a while, you may know that I’ve just switched from traditional publishing (paper, major publisher) to self-publishing via Amazon’s self-pub Kindle platform.
