Boosting You Book Sales On The Web With Podding

Diss, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 19, 2009 -- Podding is a simple and effective way of increasing book sales on the web by teaming up with a specialist publisher like DragonCub (

Podding is a new term coined to describe a relationship between an author and a ‘print on demand’ publisher. Instead of would-be authors becoming collectors of rejection slips from agents and traditional publishing houses, a podding agreement will let a writer cut out all the middlemen and go to a podding publisher, who will take a manuscript, edit and format the text ready for firing out paperback or hardback copies as soon as the orders come in.

A podding partner like DragonCub ( will also help with marketing the book, but because podding cuts the overheads, writers earn up to 80% royalty on each sale.

Writers can also help themselves sell more books online with these five simple steps: -Teaming up with a podding partner like DragonCub (
