PublishDrive becomes the only publishing platform where indies can easily publish and manage not just ebooks, but prints and audiobooks.
The platform assists publishers to find the best formats to make their content available digitally in more than 400+ online stores and thousands of libraries.
According to PublishDrive, print is estimated to be $150 billion dollars by 2022 and audio is the fastest-growing format in online publishing.
PublishDrive makes it easy for the authors to publish and manage all 3 formats in one dashboard. They also offer special deals and support tools for distribution and marketing, as well as access the WIDEST distribution of 400+ online stores, 140K digital libraries, and hard-to-reach markets like China.
However, access to all these features come at a price, and the monthly fee author need to pay that can go up to $99.99. Unlike other ebook and book distribution platforms like Amazon or IngramSpark, PublishDrive will make money whether you have sales or not.
PublishDrive’s bold move to charge for its distribution services proves that it’s no longer free to self-publish a book. Actually, it never was. Most of us paid at least for a professional cover or the services of an experienced editor.
If done with the intention of becoming a full-time author, self-publishing is a business. And like any other business, it requires time, dedication, and money.
