Barnes & Noble have this week announced the rollout of their Nook Press self-publishing platform to the United Kingdom and also parts of Europe including countries such as France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The Nook Press self-publishing platform was previously restricted to users based in the United States but now allows authors to publish their creations and make them available via the Nook platform on both Nook hardware and devices running the Nook Reading application.
“We are excited to make NOOK Press available to independent authors and publishers in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium, opening up new sales opportunities to international authors and publishers,” said Theresa Horner, General Manager of NOOK Press. “This is another example of Barnes & Noble’s long-standing commitment to supporting and promoting authors and publishers, and bringing the very best content to its customers.”
Barnes & Noble explain that US publishers with worldwide rights, can expect to see their content rolling out to the newly added countries “over the coming months”.
