XinXii has expanded its international distribution network and landed yet another fascinating sales channel for self-publishers: Indie authors and indie publishers are now able to easily access Scribd via XinXii. The “Netflix for e-books” reaches over 80 million readers per month in over 100 countries.
Readers have access to e-books on Scribd through their subscription service. E-book subscription services are used in particular by avid readers: they can read as many e-books as they like in exchange for paying a monthly fixed fee. As a result, the model is attractive to both authors and their e-books alike: Subscription services strongly encourage browsing, thereby increasing the chances that e-books are discovered, read and recommended in the first place – potential that every author should use.
With 80 million readers per month, Scribd has become the largest global digital library. For a low monthly subscription of only $8.99 (€ 7,99), readers can enjoy an unlimited number of e-books selected from a comprehensive catalog of around 500,000 titles – including e-books from HarperCollins, one of the largest publishers in the world, Lonely Planet, Wiley, National Geographic, and much more.
Now self-publishing authors can gain access to the “largest global digital library” via XinXii. We invite you to be a part of it!
All authors who upload a new e-book to XinXii can individually select the retailers to which we should distribute the e-book. They can now make their e-book accessible to readers on Scribd as well.
We are looking forward to working with Scribd to grow our self-publishers’ audience and sales in the months and years ahead.
