Authors need every way possible to connect with fans. In addition to Podiobooks.com, which gives free, serialized podcasts of full novels, other electronic methods are making books more available and cheaper. Podiobooks.com recently formed agreements with Smashwords so that ebook versions could be purchased if the authors made them available.

A small but growing number of Podiobooks.com authors have started using White Wolf Press to see that ebook versions are made to fit into a variety of channels. See White Wolf Press’s list of authors and books here

ebooks & White Wolf, LLC

Brian Rathbone firmly believes that ebooks should be a part of every author’s distribution plan. He’ll tell you to get on Smashwords.com and get your work distributed to major players like Amazon, Sony, and Barnes and Noble. He’d tell you to have an iPhone app made of your book and sell it on iTunes. He used to tell people to get on Mobipocket, but when Mobipocket announced they would no longer be accepting new publishers, he knew independent authors were going to miss out on a great opportunity. It was then that White Wolf Press, LLC underwent a transformation from publishing only Brian’s works to being a royalty-paying digital publisher. The primary focus of White Wolf Press is to help authors with published or podcasted novels who wish to establish a presence in the ebook market.

Digital publishing gets author’s works in front of a global audience. It’s a relatively low risk proposition and it compliments other forms of publishing. With no upfront costs and help from White Wolf in lowering the technical barrier, authors can achieve widespread digital distribution of their ebooks.

Please note that Podioracket isn’t paid to endorse any services or products. We do tend to support undertakings that have worked for us. Rhonda R. Carpenter’s The Mark of a Druid novel has been released in eBook format by White Wolf, and Brian Rathbone has just come on board as a permanent staff member. So, while we aren’t paid, and H.E. Roulo put this piece together, we may very well be biased. But only in a good way, I hope.
