“Thank you for calling BookBaby, my name is _____ . How can I help you?” So starts hundreds of calls to our Philadelphia and Portland call centers every week. Most of these chats turn into great conversations for both the author and our publishing team. But not every call has a happy outcome. More than few calls, unfortunately, come to an early halt. This is how those abbreviated calls used to go. Author: “Do you offer printed book distribution?” BookBaby Customer Service: “Ah, well at this time we don’t offer printed book distribution...” Author: ______ (sound of phone hanging up). These kinds of exchanges happened dozens of times every day. A large-and-growing-hungrier number of authors want distribution for their printed books, just like they enjoy with their eBooks being distributed through BookBaby. And that’s something BookBaby didn’t offer. Until now.
If you’re a journalist or an author who enjoys writing nonfiction stories, the eBook single represents a new revenue stream for you. In some cases, authors can net more than $100,000* for a 60-page effort.
