One of the many things I’ve been working on behind the scenes around here is a distribution agreement for our books with a site called Libboo. What is Libboo? In their own words:
Libboo is a publishing startup, with partners and supporters ranging from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to the National Literacy Trust and the BBC. Libboo aims to help authors (whether they have a traditional publishing deal or have self-published) increase their chance of success by pairing their books with the correct “buzzers”. A buzzer is someone who has influence in their personal community and who, most importantly, is passionate about sharing the books they love. Libboo believes that a key part of making an author successful is to pair them with others who will share their work and help expose it to a wider audience.
It’s an exciting prospect, and working with Libboo has been a pleasure. They started their pilot program on Monday, and my novel Pariah is one of the first books published through their site. The Libboo pilot program will continue for the next three months, and over those months, Libboo will also be publishing editions of Paul’s novel, The Sol-Bect War, Part 1, and our latest anthology, Scribings Vol 2: Lost Civilizations.
If you love reading and this is the first time you’ve heard of Libboo, please check out their site. I’ll make additional posts when our other books become available on their site.
