So he decided to publish it himself.
Sounds familiar, huh?
He also created an online platform to help other authors publish and market their books. Thus was born Wubbit.com.
I have no first hand knowledge of Wubbit, but according to Cincinnati online:
Wubbit lets authors and small presses register books on the site for sale directly to consumers or bookstores. Wubbit charges a one-time $36 registration fee but then pays the seller 65 percent of all retail sales. Bookstores can purchase on the site at a wholesale discount, still giving authors 45 to 55 percent of salesLoomer is working on getting books on Galaxy Press and in independent bookstores.
For authors, Loomer will continue to roll out new services, like the ability to use Mitchell's publishing services and the marketing and printing offerings of other partners. Wubbit.com will also have a platform for them to build personal web pages and to offer electronic books that can be used on an iPad, Nook or Kindle.He’s also investing in electronic bar code technology. All in all, he expects by the end of this year, he’ll have invested $1 million.
We may have to wait to see what happens with Wubbit to know whether it’s a great deal for writers, What do you think?
