Following the big announcement of the launch of Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing portal PubIt! yesterday, we have more news today, of an another big player in the self-publishing world.
This one hails out of Germany. The service is called XinXii. It is Germany’s largest self-publishing-to-ebook platform — but they are trying to expand. A spokesperson from XinXii contacted us today to tell us they are now going to offer books in the English and French languages. The company has been around for two years and now they are going to try to move out of just the German market, and into a more international one.
“This step is a logical result of the outstanding response in Germany,” Dr. Andrea Schober, founder and head of PR and marketing for XinXii, said in a press release. “Our goal is to become an international leader as a do-it-yourself platform for the digital publication and online sale of authors’ own writings.”
Potential authors may be interested to hear that XinXii offers up to 70% cut of the sale prices for ebooks, which is quite better than the average, which is often closer to around 40%-50%.
