Draft2Digital Now Distributes to Overdrive

Draft2Digital has just announced that they can now distribute ebooks to OverDrive:

We’re pleased to announce that, starting today, Draft2Digital now distributes to OverDrive, enabling our authors to place their books into one of the most trusted and far-reaching library distribution services on the planet.

OverDrive currently serves to more than 38,000 libraries and schools, in 70+ countries, including public, college and corporate libraries.

As a D2D author, you’ll be able to distribute your books through OverDrive and receive benefits you won’t find elsewhere:

  • Lower minimum pricing—Set your price as low as 99 cents
  • Better royalties—Earn 46.75% of your list price
  • No contracts or limitations—Distribution with OverDrive is opt-in, and you can choose to include or exclude your books right from your Author Dashboard

The next time you log in to Draft2Digital, you’ll see a pop-up that will let you include all your books at once, making it easy to start distributing right away! If you’d prefer to wait, you can opt in one book at a time, any time.

Draft2Digital distributes to all the major ebookstores as well as Findaway (for audiobooks) and Kobo Plus.

This is great news, but perhaps not the best way for indie authors to get their books into libraries. Over at The Passive Voice, one author has remarked that his library would prefer to buy a POD copy rather than the ebook because it is easier for the librarians and less expensive in the long run.

Just an FYI.

About Nate Hoffelder (9906 Articles)
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."

    “Draft2Digital distributes to all the major ebookstores”… except the biggest, Amazon, which is an option with StreetLib, PublishDrive, Pronoun, Bookbaby, Ebook Partnership, etc. D2D did at one time distribute to Amazon until Amazon terminated that option.

    “This is great news, but perhaps not the best way for indie authors to get their books into libraries.”

    It’s the best way to get ebooks into libraries. It needn’t be an either/or choice to have both ebook and print available.
