Dymocks has launched a new web-based book publishing service, designed to enable authors to take control of the professional creation, publishing and distribution of books and eBooks, without the need for previous experience or expertise.
Announced at the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, D Publishing will be available from October and according to CEO Don Grover, is a logical extension for the business.
“We believe that D Publishing has the potential to significantly support and grow the book industry in Australia by providing more opportunities for Australian authors to create, publish, and sell their books.”
“Unlike the traditional publishing model this service is driven by the author. If you are thinking about publishing your first, or one of many books, you should think of D Publishing,” Grover added.
D Publishing will allow up and coming local authors to see their works in published form and available for purchase online, with a selection to be made available in Dymocks stores across the country.
“The launch of this service also allows us to give something back to our loyal community of Booklovers – offering them the opportunity to either publish their own works, or to contribute and offer feedback to other budding author’s books.”
From October, budding authors and publishers can upload their draft manuscript to the service and go on to produce and publish their book via D Publishing.
