Bowker has partnered with Digi-Rights to offer self-publishing authors and small publishers rights and permissions solutions technology.
Through a series of deals and partnerships, Bowker has quickly become one of the most aggressive players in the fast-growing authors services market. In February, it partnered with DCL and Vook to offer authors and publishers buying ISBN identification numbers ebook conversion and distribution support. In early May, Bowker inked a deal with book-publishing public relations firm Smith Publicity to offer book publicity services. And last week, the company announced the launch of SelfPublishedAuthor.com, a portal where it offers those services and more to self-published authors.
