Author Solutions To Distribute Indie E-Books Through B&N Website, Nook

Fresh off the heels of a distribution agreement that brought many of e-books in its catalog to Scribd, indie book publisher Author Solutions (ASI) has inked a similar deal with bookseller Barnes & Noble.

Under terms of the agreement, e-book formats of all new ASI titles published through the AuthorHouse, iUniverse, Trafford Publishing, and Xlibris imprints will be made available for purchase through the B&N website on its nook reader.

Much like the agreement with Scribd, a default price of $9.99 will be set for every title, but each author will have the opportunity to set his or her own price.

E-book distribution through and nook will be included as a free service for all new black-and-white ASI titles.
