Author Solutions' BookStub(TM) Service Helps E-Book Authors Build Audience

BookStubs Provide Readers With Even More Access to the Digital E-Book Marketplace by Enabling In-Person Marketing Opportunities, E-Book Signings and Giveaways (June 18, 2012)

BLOOMINGTON, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 06/18/12 -- Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie book publishing, today launched the BookStub, a revolutionary new e-book marketing product that provides authors with increased access to readers by enabling person-to-person e-book distribution, and new opportunities for publicity in the digital marketplace.

A BookStub is a wallet-sized plastic card adorned with a full-color image of the book's cover on one side, with an individual product code, QR code and download instructions on the back. Like a business card, now authors can conveniently carry promotional copies of their e-books, so they never miss an opportunity to interest potential readers or book reviewers again. Each BookStub can be redeemed for one free e-book, which is available through the publisher's bookstore.

"The BookStub is a major innovation for authors eager to market their e-books both traditionally and through exciting new means in the digital marketplace," said Keith Ogorek, senior vice president of global marketing for Author Solutions, Inc. "Authors now have more options for promoting e-books online, including digital book signings, e-book giveaways and the ability to digitally distribute copies to reviewers and journalists."

BookStubs are available through any Author Solutions, Inc. assisted self-publishing imprint, including Abbott Press, AuthorHouse, Balboa Press, Inspiring Voices, iUniverse, Palibrio, Trafford and Westbow Press and through its DIY e-book publishing platform, Booktango.
