All New and Some Backlist Titles to Be Made Available Through World’s Largest Social Publishing Company
Under terms of the agreement, all new ASI titles published through the AuthorHouse, iUniverse, Trafford Publishing, and Xlibris imprints will be made available for purchase. As well, a portion of ASI’s backlist of more than 120,000 titles will be sold through the site.
“Scribd presents a great opportunity for our emerging authors to present their work through a portal that attracts more than 50 million users each month, and to potentially sell their content at much higher royalty percentages than are possible with traditional paper-and-ink books,” said Kevin Weiss, ASI president and chief executive officer.
Authors will receive 50 percent of the net sales of their titles through Scribd. A default price of $9.99 will be set for every title, but each author will have the opportunity to set his or her own price. Distribution to Scribd will be included as a free service for all new ASI titles.
“Scribd is a great platform for indie authors to build readerships and get their books distributed on many mobile devices,” said Tammy H. Nam, Scribd vice president of content. “Our social publishing approach also enables authors and readers to connect in a way that no other site offers.”
