Booktango Offers Authors Widest e-Book Distribution and Best Royalties
New DIY e-Book Publishing Service Provides Authors with a Free and Easy-to-Use Platform to Publish and Distribute their Book to Every Major Book Retailer and e-Reading Device
BLOOMINGTON, IND. – Feb. 7, 2012 – Booktango, the DIY e-book publishing solution from Author Solutions, Inc., today announced the launch of its new service. The easy-to-use online free e-book publishing application is now available to authors eager to distribute and sell their books on leading e-reading devices including the Kindle, Nook, iPad, Kobo e-Reader, Sony Reader and smartphones. Built with the author’s needs in mind, Booktango users can expect the highest royalties in the industry while still retaining the ownership rights to their content.
“As the world leader in indie book publishing, we have helped more than 140,000 authors bring over 170,000 books to market,” said Kevin Weiss, CEO of Author Solutions, Inc. “That experience makes us uniquely qualified to enter the DIY e-book publishing space because we understand better than anyone what’s important to authors. Making our service free and easy to use while offering the best distribution and royalty structure in the business is just another way we are helping to make it the best time in history to be an author.”
Existing DIY services have often been described as hard to use and not intuitive, leading to frustrated authors and abandoned e-book projects. Booktango addresses these common e-book publishing complaints by offering a simple application that makes it easy for even the most novice users to upload a manuscript, identify errors, edit the document, and sell the finished e-book. Currently, authors can provide their own cover art or use Booktango’s basic e-book cover design service, which is available exclusively for free to beta users. In the near future, Booktango plans to offer an online DIY cover designer tool that will allow users to create their own for free.
“This is an entirely new segment of the publishing market for Author Solutions to serve,” continued Weiss. “This community of authors is almost exclusively interested in publishing and marketing their books entirely on their own. Booktango allows us to deliver best-of-breed solutions for the DIY author to independently create and distribute a beautifully published eBook.”
With direct distribution through the Booktango Bookstore and through top book retailers including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple’s iBooks and more, Booktango truly offers the widest distribution network available. And best of all, Booktango authors receive the highest royalties in the industry.
