Australia’s Largest Bookseller Launches Publishing Arm

Dymocks announced this week that it is about to get into the publishing business.

Later this year it will be launching D Publishing, a new self-pub platform that will offer full editing, design, production, and printing services to small publishers and the self-published. D Publishing will be a web-based operation, but other than that I don’t have many details to share. Prices, fees, and other costs haven’t been set yet.

The goal of the new imprint is to create publishable books and possibly distribute them through Dymocks. There’s no mention of eBooks, but I imagine they will be included as well.

It sounds like it’s going to be something more than your usual POD but less than a complete publishing house, and I suspect that Dymocks will hold back on this in order to avoid angering its major publishing partners.
