PubIt! is now Nook Press

Barnes and Noble has relaunched their self-publishing service, Publishers Marketplace reports. In partnership with self-publishing software providers FastPencil, the new Nook Press (formerly known as PubIt!) will feature tools that enable authors to upload and revise a manuscript within the tool, and invite others to read and comment on the project.

According to Publisher’s Marketplace:

Nook says that self-published ebooks now comprise 25 percent of all monthly Nook sales (we’re inferring that’s in units.) They add that 30 percent of Nook customers purchase self-published ebooks every month, and they say title volume from self-published authors is growing by 24 percent each quarter at the Nook store.

As before, Nook Press pays through 65 percent of list price for ebooks between $2.99 and $9.99, and 40 percent of list for ebooks priced above and below those threshholds, with a minimum price of 99 cents and a maximum price of $199.99. They pledge “no hidden terms or fees,” so there are no file download charges deducted from author proceeds.

    Just from the terms you include in this snippet, it looks competitive. I’ll have to add “Nook Press” to my list to consider as I move toward publication.
