Barnes and Noble’s Dirty Little Secret: Author Solutions and Nook Press


Author Beware:  Notorious AUTHOR SOLUTIONS increased future revenue by closing a deal with … You won’t believe it: Nook Press / Barnes & Noble! who offer now Print-on-Demand services through Author Solutions.
David Gauthran explains one of the most frightening points for authors, who sell their books through Barnes & Noble – even if they don’t use any of the POD services:
.
“If you think you are safe because you have never used Nook Press Author Services, and don’t plan to, I am afraid that’s not the case. I am not a lawyer, but under my reading of the terms of the Nook Press Privacy Policy, Barnes & Noble already has the right to share the personal information of all Nook Press users with third party suppliers like Author Solutions.”
.
Read the whole story (peppered with documents for proof) at David’s blog, including responses of writers – and after please, do share it, re-blog it, and spread the word so that all authors get informed and be warned about this new scam. Many authors already pulled their books from B&N… as one can see on the many comments to blog articles regarding Author Solutions and Barnes & Noble.
.

“Dear Barnes & Noble:
Why on earth contracting with Author Solutions?  And trick authors?  Why not making money from selling books – instead of making money from selling (often useless) services at inflated prices to AUTHORS?  And even giving personal data about authors – who commission their books on your online platform – to Author Solutions?”
.

A BIG thanks to David Gaughran, who works hard,
investigates and helps everyone in the writing community
to stay away from these unethical practices.
.

David Gaughran

NookPressAuthorSolutionsNook Press – Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing platform – launched a selection of author services last October including editing, cover design, and (limited) print-on-demand.

Immediate speculation surrounded who exactly was providing these services, with many – including Nate Hoffelder, Passive Guy, and myself – speculating it could be Author Solutions. However, there was no proof.

Until now.

A source at Penguin Random House has provided me with a document which shows that Author Solutions is secretly operating Nook Press Author Services. The following screenshot is taken from the agreement between Barnes & Noble and writers using the service.

You will see that the postal address highlighted above for physical submission of manuscripts is “Nook Press Author Services, 1663 Liberty Drive, Bloomington, Indiana.”

About the Book.

Extinct beast comes to life, stalks Ozarks town…….

In “The Wolf’s Moon,” Patrick Jones writes a suspense thriller where one man must hunt down a mysterious wolf that preys upon the people of a small town and creates a spellbinding tale of an ancient animal that haunts the foothill towns of Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. An unknown group of scientists has genetically engineered a Dire Wolf into the present day. Allegedly extinct, the ferocious beast preys upon the innocent people of Maple Hills.

To hunt and kill the beast, the town folk will have to rely on the tracking feats of Mark Lansdowne. He is a reluctant hero, still mourning the loss of his wife to illness. Relying on his rescue dogs…

The Ebook Doctor Mailbag – Epub and Pdf – the differences.

Part II of the series by David Cronin explains EPUB and PDF formats.
Simply put, an Ebook is a ‘packaged’ website, and an E-reader is a hand-held web browser.
The EPUB format was introduced in 2007 as a format to enable viewing of electronic documents in a completely different way.
The Ebook contains a series of connected web pages which can be displayed using a browser. The pages are stored inside a “Package” or “Container”. For EPUB this has the .epub file extension.
What is very different with Ebooks is that they are designed to be “reflowable”. The text size and fonts do not come from the EPUB file itself but, just like on a computer, the available fonts are stored on the E-reader and the user can choose the default font type, font size, page margins etc.

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Since the introduction to the new series we have received a number of questions about the process -most will be covered over the coming weeks but since this was in one of the comments I decided to do a post.

http://sweetyshinde.wordpress.com/ Dr. Sweety Shinde asked this question this morning and since it is a question that comes up quite frequently David has put together an overview.

I am still old school of thought – preferring the paperback version to Kindle. However, I do doff my hat at evolution. Could you clarify the difference between ePub and pdf version? Are they really different? Goodreads asks for ebook in ePub version, while excerpts can be in pdf version.

———————–

Although both Epub and PDF formats can be read by most Ebook readers they are completely different formats and each delivers the content in a completely different way.

PDF is a format…
