Koobsy: Indie Titles Recommended by Indie Authors

Koobsy: Indie Titles Recommended by Indie Authors | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
There are many sites where you can find book recommendations, but very few focus on indie authors, and even fewer where indie authors are making the recommendation. That's where Koobsy comes in. Launching this week, Koobsy is a book recommendation site which helps readers discover the best indie authors who deserve to be heard. Each month an established indie author will choose two indie ebooks they like. The titles will be made available for download to Koobsy members DRM-free. According to co-founder Angus King, the inspiration for Koobsy came when the founders realized there was an unfulfilled need in the ebook market. "Koobsy began when we noticed a lack of quality guarantee when it came to indie ebooks," King told me by email. "A friend of ours bought two self published titles from Amazon to read, and both had grammatical errors and a poor plot line. Not fun, especially when you're spending money on them." "But we knew there were good self publishers out there. From podcasts, articles, and going to events, we could tell that indie had its gold standard, equal to traditional publishers." And who better to find great indie titles than other indie authors? Koobsy costs $6 a month. [...]

KDP Print - Amazon is Beta-Testing a Combined Kindle and POD Dashboard

KDP Print - Amazon is Beta-Testing a Combined Kindle and POD Dashboard | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
For the longest time Amazon has offered two distribution platforms for books. Publishers could use KDP to sell ebooks in the Kindle Store, and they could use Createspace (and before that, Booksurge) to distribute POD books. Now Amazon is testing a combined interface where publishers can manage both their ebooks in the Kindle Store and their POD books in Createspace. The new feature is called KDP Print, and according to the comment thread at KBoards this feature has been available to a limited number of KDP users since July 2016. Comment threads on the Createspace and KDP support forums confirm that  most users don't see new feature, but there is also a report on Self Publisher Bibel that users are seeing the option in Germany. That suggests that the testing has gone international. Details are still scarce, but what we know now is that users can generate sales reports in KDP which cover both their print and digital books. The following screenshots were made by Emily Martha Sorensen: Amazon is trying to keep this program under the radar, so we don't know much at this time. The retailer has published a couple KDP help pages with more detail, but those pages can only [...]
