While investigating the nitty-gritty unexpected details in this self-publishing business (I think I was googling something about ISBNs (those numbers above the barcodes if you didn’t know (like how I didn’t) – consensus seems to be that they aren’t necessary, but are a good thing to have to back up your rights)), I came across this blog post by savvy writers:
It references the British company eBook Partnership as an option for self-publishers who want to reach ALL OF THE DISTRIBUTORS!
This is a thing? You can pay someone to reach all of the outlets and even libraries? AND THEY DON’T TAKE COMMISSION???
Colour me suspicious.
I’ve got to be honest here: this seems too good to be true. These guys only charge $50 for a year of this:
They do have plenty of recommendations on their website… but you know how if it seems too good to be true, it probably is?
What I’d like to know, is if any of you authors/interested parties out there have heard of this? For now, it seems legit, but I’m definitely curious on getting some third-party opinions…
So, what do you think?
