Infinity Publishing Partners With Sony

Infinity Publishing, a website for self-publishing, has signed a distribution agreement with Sony. Under the terms of the partnership, Infinity eBooks are now available for purchase through Sony’s Reader Store.

This could be a good way for print authors to get their digital books out there. For a setup fee of $199, Infinity converts an author’s existing work into an eBook format, assigns an ISBN to the title, and handles all aspects of distribution. Amazon’s CreateSpace is another option.

This also might mean getting Infinity Books into the hands of libraries. Sony is currently running a library project in which they are donating eReaders and training to select cities across the country from Brooklyn to San Diego.
