Nook Press Opens Its Doors to Authors in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand

Nook Press Opens Its Doors to Authors in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand Barnes & Noble Self-Pub

Barnes & Noble's publisher portal sent an email yesterday to authors announcing that it wasn't dead - in fact, it even started accepting authors from outside the US.

From KBoards:

Dear Publisher,

Summer is upon us and things are heating up at B&N Press! We wanted to let you know about our recently launched features:

B&N Press is now open to users from Canada, Australia and New Zealand! Authors based in these countries can now start selling their books direct to B&N/NOOK readers in the U.S.

Top 5 Bestseller Sales Reporting Widget: Now you can see which titles are top performers over the past 7 or 30 days.

Category Search Tool: This tool lets you easily type to search for your most relevant categories (we recently added 4,000 additional categories, too!).

We're adding new partners each month and recently partnered with Reedsy, who offers editorial services of all kinds, and Girl Friday Productions, who offers full service publishing packages, author logo and website design at a special price for B&N Press users.

Reedsy is also offering a FREE webinar on How to Create the Ultimate Book Launch plan exclusively for B&N Press users at 1 PM EDT on Tuesday, September 11th. Sign up here.

Sincerely,
The B&N Press Team

I was frankly surprised to read about this development; B&N's ebook division is in a death spiral, and only generated $111 million in revenue last fiscal year.

One would think that anyone with the motivation to add new features would have left for greener pastures, but I guess not.
