Author Solutions, the comprehensive self-publishing company, which also authors marketing solutions for self-published or traditionally published authors, has signed a deal with Scribd, making all new Author Solutions titles as well as a selection from the publisher’s large backlist, available for purchase on Scribd.

According to TechCrunch, which has more on the deal, Author Solutions authors will recieve 50% of the net sales of their books, which will have a default price of $9.99, though authors will be able to log in and set their own price.

According to TechCruch, “In a statement, Author Solutions says the Scribd portal currently attracts over 50 million users per month, and that the startup’s platform will help authors make more money from book sales because it brings higher royalty percentages than are possible with traditional paper-and-ink books.”
