Today, we would talk about another self-publishing company- Buboox. Buboox is a new eBook company in Nigeria. They have started cutting their own paths for readers. Their website only features PDFs and you might not find the DRM features like some other applications e.g. Okadabooks. Yet, you cannot miss the fact that your books can be read in the PDF format from a Nigerian company. That means, very soon we would start selling more on the platform than Amazon and Smashwords.
The website has published books by authors such as ‘Thin Line’ by Damilola Popoola, ‘Dear Future Husband’ by Tomi Adesina, ‘El Pensamiento’ by Ade Lero.
What You Stand to Gain
At Buboox, they are not only about your books, they are concerned about your success as an author. They would make use of tactics like use of visual adverts – graphics and animation to further intensify the appeal of your work.
How They Get Their Money?
Buboox gets 25% of the sale.
How Then Do You Publish with Them
You will send your information through their website in this format.
Fullname Email Bio Books Cover Page (book cover) Synopsis (for each of the book) Ebook – for download Prices (for each of the book) Photo / Identity (Author Picture) category of the book (genre) – (i.e Fiction)
Afterwards, you begin to see sales reports on your book. Moreover, you can sell through Pre-orders. Here, you give them the price you want to sell the book as well as other information (they might require) and it will get featured.
Next time we are talking about Self-publishing websites, we would talk on how to buy a book from Okadabooks and Buboox. People have been sending a lot of questions on how to buy books on Okadabooks especially, we will touch that.
