By Dianna Dilworth Comment

pwlogoPublishers Weekly is getting into the self-publishing business with launch of a new site dedicated to self-publishing.  The site is a joint venture with PWxyz and Mediapolis, a technology firm co-founded by Pritzkat.

BookLife, which will go live on May 29, 2014 at BookExpo America, will focus on three main subject areas: book creation which includes editing and cover design; publishing which is all about the physical manufacturing of a book; and book marketing, which will include information on distribution, publicity and sales.

“Self-published books and authors are having more and more impact on readers and the publishing industry,” stated Carl Pritzkat, the president of BookLife and VP of business development for PWxyz LLC.
