Wait, what? Didn’t D2D just acquire Smashwords, like, last year? And aren’t you guys still working on integrating the two companies?
What can we say? We’re on a mission. And it’s the same mission we’ve had since the inception of the business: D2D exists to improve the lives of authors. To help authors turn their hobbies into full-time careers.
So, when the opportunity to add SPBC’s pioneering marketplace of thousands of professional, one-of-a-kind premade book cover designs to your author toolbox, we simply couldn’t pass it up. We love helping authors improve their businesses, and now we also get to help cover artists grow their businesses by welcoming them into the D2D ecosystem.
How SPBC Works
For authors, SPBC makes it easy to find and purchase the perfect cover at a great price. For artists, SPBC makes it possible to serve more authors with more cover designs in less time. SPBC virtually eliminates the time-consuming back-and-forth iterations necessary with conventional custom cover design.
Over the next 12 months, D2D will operate the business as it is, so it will not impact the Smashwords to D2D account migrations. We plan to introduce a major refresh to the SPBC marketplace within the next year or two to enable improved cover image discoverability and workflows.
SPBC is fully operational and available today to authors and cover artists at https://selfpubbookcovers.com/
We’re here for YOUR Success
D2D is so committed to YOUR success, that we established a whole new division dedicated to it. The new division, called Author Success (aren’t we clever?), will be headed by Nick Thacker, VP of Author Success. As Nick says, “Our mission at Author Success, as it is with SPBC, is to help authors efficiently procure the highest-quality essential publishing services for the least cost and effort.” Stay tuned for more Author Success news in the coming months.
