I’m posting this because the COSLA report and some of the speakers at the eBook Summit yesterday believe that libraries should become self-publishers in an effort to increase their viability in the community and bring the community to the 21st century world. Infinity is a vibrant, self-publishing company. Perhaps we can learn something or start collaborating with companies like Infinity Publishing.
Infinity Publishing, a pioneer in self-publishing, today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Sony to make Infinity eBooks available for purchase on Sony’s Reader Store™.
Infinity’s eBooks will now be available for sale on Sony’s Reader Store, from which readers can download eBooks in open-standard formats that can be viewed on various eBook reading devices, including Sony’s Reader.
Infinity’s eBook offering for self-published authors, described in more detail at http://www.infinitypublishing.com/additional-book-publishing-services/ebook.html, incorporates the same simple business principles the company has used successfully in digitally publishing books for more than a decade. For a one-time setup fee of $199, Infinity converts an author’s existing published work into an eBook, assigns an ISBN to the title, and handles all aspects of distribution. The author’s eBook is available for sale indefinitely, with no maintenance fees or other costs required, including future proofs for new electronic reading devices.
