BookBrewer In the News
See what people are saying about BookBrewer in the news:
Denver Business Journal: "We chose BookBrewer because it’s easy to use and works well for e-publisher platforms...” - Mario Ruiz, The Huffington Post.
Fast Company: "BookBrewer's other offering is more intriguing: Its service allows a blog (via an RSS feed) to be quickly transformed into an e-book format, so it can also be sold through the same channels as more traditional texts. It's a kind of reversal of thinking about digital publishing, almost like printing out your Facebook friend pages as a paper-and-ink book. Yet it's also strangely powerful."
ZDNet: "Powered by BookBrewer, a multi-platform digital publishing solution, writers should be able to format and publish their titles within a few days ... there will be a lot of stuff that major publishers would have passed on for good reason. But there also might be some gems out there that might have been ignored or lost otherwise."
ReadWriteWeb: "Borders throws its hat into the ring with a partnership with the Boulder-based startup BookBrewer, offering a service that will let independent authors publish and sell their eBooks via the Borders' eBookstore."
Engadget: "We guess that Barnes & Noble can't have all the fun, huh? You'll soon have another option for self-publishing your wildly fantastical (and wonderfully fact-free) rants.
GigaOm: Borders has joined forces with a service called BookBrewer to provide a simple service that allows bloggers or anyone else with an idea to publish what is effectively an e-book, and get it distributed through all the major e-book platforms.
PC Magazine: "We know many book lovers are also writers or aspiring authors who want to share their stories but do not want to invest the time and money to self-publish in print," Mike Edwards, chief executive of Borders, said in a statement. "'Borders Get Published,' powered by BookBrewer offers the perfect solution – authors can quickly and easily load, format, and publish content, which will then be available for sale within a few days on Borders.com and other major e-book outlets."
MediaBistro: "Borders has entered the self-publishing fray, competing with Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords with the new Borders Get Publishedprogram for eBooks. The program will be driven by the BookBrewer publishing platform."
Publishers Weekly: "BookBrewer is a startup firm that has developed software that allows anyone to publish across a variety of mobile device platforms. Using the new service, a writer can upload content from a blog or website; or copy and paste a text file into BookBrewer’s online form and then edit or rearrange the document into final form."
Beta News: ""Everyone has a story to tell, pictures to share or advice to give. It turns out that those are exactly the kinds of things people want to buy and read as eBooks," said BookBrewer CEO Dan Pacheco in a statement today. "We're thrilled to have the opportunity to work with an iconic brand like Borders, which not only has an incredible customer base, but also has a great local community focus."
Silicon Angle: "The BookBrewer service promises to transform a blog into an e-book in minutes and certainly appears capable of delivering on that promise."
