BookBaby might not be the largest ebook distributor but they could well be one of the more sophisticated services on the market. This ebook distributor announced on Thursday that they were making it easier for authors to promote themselves on
had signed deals with the online book community GoodReads and NoiseTrade, a free ebook promotion site.
Authors who sign up to have their ebooks distributed via BookBaby can take advantage of BookPromo, BookBaby’s free promotion service. This service, which includes a free marketing guide, enables authors to connect with book reviewers with Readers’ Favorite and Story Cartel and receive discounts on book trailers and and PR services.
And now, thanks to the new deals with GoodReads and NoiseTrade, authors can have their ebooks included in the GoodReads database
recommendation engine, giving them a better chance of being discovered by readers. They now also have easy access to NoiseTrade, where they can give away their ebooks in exchange for a reader’s email address.
"Goodreads is an essential site for all authors to use when promoting their books," said Steven Spatz, BookBaby CMO. "Over 25 million readers use Goodreads, and all our BookBaby authors will automatically be listed on the site, where readers can link to bookstores to purchase, write reviews, and share with their friends on social media."

Yeah, I ran a "price quote" on the Bookbaby site. For example to duplicate a 342 page trade paper book I have done via Lulu.com now for under $12 plus $5 shipping for one copy. Bookbaby seems to want $89+ for that one copy. Must be some mistake.
