It's getting even easier for aspiring and independent authors to get their work to the masses these days. Borders has now launched an e-book publishing platform of its own.
Powered by BookBrewer, a multi-platform digital publishing solution, writers should be able to format and publish their titles within a few days. There aren't any limitations when it comes to content or length, and participants of this program can set their own prices (as long as they are within reasonable bounds as determined by the retailers, of course.)
Authors have two options when it comes to pricing:
- Basic Publishing Package ($89.99): BookBrewer assigns the book an ISBN and makes it available to all major eBook stores at a price set by the writer. Royalties are based on sales and vary among each online retailer.
- Advanced Publishing Package ($199.99): Authors receive a full version of their ePub file. This means they own the product entirely, and the author can distribute it to e-book stores and friends as he or she sees fit.
