Fictionwise closing branded ebookstores

Richard Curtis over at e-reads has noticed that Fictionwise have closed their affiliated ebookstores. (Actually, I'm not certain that's the right word.) Let me explain. Fictionwise used to provide publishers with ebookstores based on their platform where customers could only see that publisher's titles.

Now that I look at this, it's really not a big deal. I mean, Fictionwise are still supporting their library hosting program, Libwise. If that closed then we'd have a solid sign that Fictionwise were being killed off my B&N.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The lack of best selling authors is another indication Fictionwise is not going anywhere.
