Bowker has launched SelfPublishedAuthor.com, an online guide offering industry advice and perspective, marketing tools, referrals to partners who can help independent publishers and a calendar of events specifically for self-published authors. It is designed to complement the company’s MyIdentifiers website, where publishers can purchase ISBNs.
“Bowker has tracked extraordinary growth in the number of self-published works over the past five years,” said Beat Barblan, Bowker director of identifier services. “There are thousands of authors who need access to advice, guidance and resources. SelfPublishedAuthor.com is designed to be their partner, helping them bring their books to market in the most effective way.”
