BooksOnBoard and ProseQuest Launch Into Publishing
Today BooksOnBoard, the leading independent eBook store and industry pioneer, announces the launch of ProseQuest, a publishing and marketing services provider. ProseQuest’s mission: Improve the odds of indie authors having their books discovered on websites already crowded with hundreds of thousands of other titles.
“The advent of eBooks has opened new doorways for writers who hope to see their work published, but the industry has been lacking an advocate in tune with the needs and desires of independent authors,” remarked Bob LiVolsi, founder and CEO of BooksOnBoard. “The partnership between BooksOnBoard and ProseQuest marks a new beginning—and an exciting new opportunity—for writers seeking more control, recognition, and publicity for their work.”
BooksOnBoard and ProseQuest are a formidable partnership. ProseQuest has the publishing expertise and professional staff to help turn manuscripts into polished, high quality eBooks; BooksOnBoard offers authors a chance to place their eBooks on the store’s front page, newsletter, or special feature pages. As the largest independent eBook store, with a large and ever-growing registered customer base, BooksOnBoard’s marketing options are an invaluable asset to getting an eBook seen—and in the hands of readers.
Authors will enjoy more than just the powerful marketing options available through the BooksOnBoard website, however: they will also have more control over their work during and after its publication. ProseQuest offers flexible formatting options, allowing an author to revise their eBook’s formatting even after it has been published and placed on the virtual bookshelves. Even more importantly, authors won’t be giving up their rights to their own content. “This alone is an important new development within the eBook publishing industry,” LiVolsi noted. “Authors and aspiring authors have spoken out with increasing frequency and force against their lack of control in the publishing process. That changes now.”
Between the freedom ProseQuest offers authors and the visibility their eBooks can receive through BooksOnBoard’s promotions, independent authors seeking a new and superior publishing experience have a lot to celebrate.
