So, what is the point of this site?
As the post title implies, it is to let indie authors and small presses offer their books for sale without a commission of sales fee. It's also designed to leverage the traffic that a large number of authors participating in the site would generate for everyone. Rising tide lifts all boats, that sort of thing.
Now, mind you, that is not (entirely) altruistic. We have options for you to promote and expand your listings that do cost $, so it's not like we don't have a path to revenue, or that we don't want to generate money to cover the costs of the site, promote it, or expand.
We think there is a path forward to encompass both of those goals. As more and more content floods other sales channels, the ability to become discovered gets harder and harder. So, the more places you and your book(s) can be found, the better. And, given that this particular channel doesn't cost you anything but time to implement, we think it's a pretty easy, and good, option.
The goal is to get 1,000 books listed by the end of the year, so the more you can help, the faster we expand the offerings and drive more traffic to the site.
It's Free, it's simple, and it's a great way to build a new channel for your writing.
