We’re happy to announce investing in Boldbooks, a Norwegian startup disrupting the publishing industry and helping indie authors be more successful.
As part of the fundraising, Boldbooks was able to raise 5.7M NOK (approx $650K) to strengthen the product offering and expand into new markets like Germany.
About Bold Books
BoldBooks wants to change the way we publish books. It is a conservative industry we are trying to turn around, but now there is a movement going on.
Since 2017, BoldBooks has had Norway as its test market and now in 2021 everything is rigged to start marketing in Germany.
Through the marketplace on boldbooks.com , authors get direct access to the same services that publishers have. Thus, the authors can skip the publishing stage, publish equally good books and keep the income, control and rights themselves.
Through the partnership with an online bookstore Bookis, we will work together to promote independent authors. There will be a separate sales channel for indie writers and we will carry out joint marketing activities.
Another exciting collaborative project is something the indie authors have been asking of us for a long time, namely real print-on-demand (printing, packaging and mailing after each individual book purchase). BoldBooks has a letter of intent to realize this in 2021. It will enable even more people to invest in publishing their own book.
