We're delighted to welcome back IngramSpark as a Gold Sponsor for all of our 2017 Indie Author Fringe events.
IngramSpark was developed for independent publishers. Authors can manage print-on-demand and digital content all within the same interface, plus they offer open access to Ingram’s global distribution network.
Once you finish and format your book IngramSpark make it possible to share it with the world. A relationship with IngramSpark allows you to focus on your specialty—creating innovative content while they manage the dull stuff: printing, shipping and distribution.
IngramSpark is part of the Ingram Content Group, which is the world’s largest wholesaler of print and electronic books to independent bookstores, bookstore chains, internet retailers, and specialty markets, as well as other wholesalers. They distribute to more than 39,000+ retailers, libraries, schools, and distribution partners in 195 countries.
Robin Cutler, Director of IngramSpark
Why Robin Loves Books:
"I love the smell of books, that musty smell that you notice in an old library. It reminds me of a time when the library of my childhood was the center of my universe. It is the smell of knowledge, comfort, and adventure."
Why Robin Loves Authors:
"The power of the written word is more important now than ever. Even as some people cram their thoughts into a mere 140 characters, the authors of the world still delight and challenge us with stories and truths that can’t be contained in a Twitter feed."
Whether you’ve been self-publishing for years or are fresh on the indie scene, this quiz lets you know where you are on the self-publishing spectrum: Professional, Skilled, or Novice.
