Author Topic: Barnes and Noble will now allow self-pub books in their stores  (Read 563 times)

Barnes and Noble is starting a program that will allow successful self published books to be sold in their stores and participate in store events. I was speaking to the chap in charge of this program and they seem quite committed to it. This could be great for successful self-pub authors. Now we just have to hope Barnes and Nobles survives long enough to enjoy it. It will also be interesting to see how Amazon responds.

Sounds a bit like Amazon KDP adding "paperback" creation to the dashboard, even though paperback via CreateSpace was always accepted and Amazon own CreateSpace.
I've sold on Barnes & Noble eBook platform (and Apple iBooks) via Smashwords automatic Distribution. About 1/4 my sales are via Smashwords (or the retailers they distribute to) and 3/4 on Amazon. None on Google Play Store yet, but I only figured how to get on that last month. It's closed to "new publishers" so you have to find a friend with a Google Publisher account. Unlike Smashwords, Nook, Amazon, the Google "publisher accounts" are designed for multiple users.
