Matador launch new ebook-only production & marketing services for self-publishing authors!

We are pleased to announce the launch of a range of comprehensive and affordable ebook-only production and marketing services specifically designed for self-publishing authors. The ebook only options will sit alongside our other highly recommended self-publishing services.

Our high-quality ebook creation process will give epublishing authors the best chance of success – ebook services offer authors options such as copyediting, proofreading, high-quality cover design, bibliographic data setup and management via industry standard Onix, ebook distribution and the creation of industry-standard ebook files. We have trading relationships with all of the major ebook retailers and make ebooks available through sites including Amazon, Apple iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, Sony, Kobo and WH Smith.

Our specific ebook department with the company is headed up by Ebook Programme Manager Amy Chadwick: “We’ve spent time in getting our ebook program right. It would have been easy to jump on the epublishing bandwagon sooner, but the company ethos is all about quality. We know that we’ve now got the best distribution, marketing and file conversion in place so that the reader experience is the best it can be,” says Amy.

Marketing is also essential and we have designed a set of comprehensive and affordable marketing services specifically for ebooks – from press release creation and dissemination to marketing materials and working with the NetGalley review system to ensure our author’s ebooks are seen by journalists and members of the media worldwide – giving self-published ebooks an equal footing to those from the mainstream. We are currently the only UK self-publisher services provider using the NetGalley site.

“Our ebook marketing packages are designed to give authors the edge in the vibrant ebook marketplace,” says Marketing Assistant Sarah Taylor. ‘Our wide range of services ensures there is something for all budgets, but all still offering the high quality we are renowned for.’

In addition to the newly launched ebook services, we continue to offer our quality and highly regarded self-publishing printing, marketing and editing services for printed books.
