BookBaby Expands to Include Copia, Kobo

The flat fee eBook distributor BookBaby expanded their distribution net today. Now, independent authors who publish eBooks with BookBaby get distribution through Amazon, Apple, and Barnes & Noble, as well as Kobo and Copia.

Distribution as well as basic eBook conversion starts at $99. “There are many options available to authors looking to self-publish these days and it can be quite confusing,” says BookBaby president Brian Felsen, “BookBaby simplifies the entire process, giving you one vendor that handles all your conversion, distribution, and accounting needs.”

When BookBaby launched back in 2010, it offered  different approach to distribution. Rather than take a commission from author’s eBook sales, BookBaby distributes eBooks for an upfront change and a small annual fee. It was launched by the folks behind CDBaby, the CD service.
