Too true apeteman.

It was the thread at Createspace that got my attention, they talked about all they hope to accomplish and the deals they say are in the making. I think if it is true, then they are breaking ground on one of the major problems self-publishing faces - Distribution.

The thing is - IF IT IS TRUE...

I don't mind putting money out for promotion, marketing and networking, if it is what they say.

I would wait to see if it is true. Its the kind of thing I've heard a hundred times before, and it ain't happened yet.

The fact that they designed such a horrible looking website isn't helping their case.

Not only is it a horribly designed webpage, but it is also dramatically short on any substantive claims it makes to having signed contracts with major retailers. Also, I note in the terms, the selfpublishingstore.com simply act as a viral middleman. Authors who sign up must have an e-commerce site to process and supply the orders fed through to them from selfpublishingstore.com.

Yeah, but forty bucks is less than the buy-in for the notorious Indie Reader (what happened with that, anyway?) and it might be worth it if they can do what they say they can...

I don't know. I'm intrigued.

And after digging around a bit, not so much. On the forums, they come off as disorganized and confused. The entire concept seems really complicated. Pass.

Yeah, everyone pointed out what I was thinking but refusing to acknowledge. In the hope there might be something to it.

Thats why I came here. I want to thank everyone who took the time to answer for giving me a the dose of reality I needed. :)

Site has fewer than 30 books listed, and doesn't look like it's been updated since 2010.
