Homebound: What’s the Best Way to Sell Books Directly to Readers? Sponsored by Glassboxx

June 9, 2021

Recent developments in publishing, such as print on demand and the rise of audio and e-books, means that it’s easier than ever for authors and publishers to sell directly to readers. Please join us and a panel of industry experts as we explore how you can sell your books directly from your own websites or other non-traditional platforms.

Justine Solomons will chair this panel her speakers include: Finn Kirkland (Firsty/Glassboxx), Meryl Halls (MD of the Booksellers Association), Karen Sullivan (Orenda Books) and Orna Ross (Founder and Director of the Alliance of Independent Authors).

This event is free and open to all, but registration is essential. We will be running this event over Zoom and a link will be sent to you once you have registered.

We are very grateful to Glassboxx for sponsoring this event. Glassboxx is a digital sales solution for publishers from the team at Firsty. It enables publishers to deliver eBook and audiobook titles directly to customers – from any and all of their online channels. Firsty created Glassboxx because tech conglomerate giants dominate the market and squeeze authors and independent publishers of margins just for a spot on the digital bookshelf. Firsty saw an easier way, so they made it themselves. Glassboxx gives publishers bigger margins, flexiblility and secure DRM and allows publishers to house their digital content within a single app on iOS and Android.
