Barnes & Noble Nook Publishing
The “Nook” from Barnes & Noble is the second leading digital reader on the market and one that authors should not overlook. Authors need to make their books available on as many devices as possible to gain maximum sales potential. Not doing so will limit your potential audience and drastically hamper book sales. Only properly formatted books that are submitted via the required process are available for NOOK readers to purchase and enjoy. The Nook has a fantastic free reading app to download that allows readers to sync their account to other devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers. A reader can change devices and pick up where they last read. Get your book in the hands of millions of potential readers worldwide.
The “budget” package is to get you published at a minimal cost. Your manuscript receives one round of mechanical formatting to meet Nook requirements. You have a choice between a free basic cover or supplying an image of your choice. If you do not have a cover and want more than a basic cover, we will even give you $50 off any of our cover design services after purchasing this package. We convert your files to the proper formats, create your Nook account, upload all files, and perform a test to review your ebook before publishing.
