In April 2013, Barnes and Noble launched NOOK Press. All NOOK Press is a redesigned version of Barnes and Noble’s PubIt!. NOOK Press has a lot of neat features, but the most important thing is that if you were using BN PubIt to upload your books to Barnes and Noble, you will now have to submit your books using NOOK Press. We’ve broken down the steps for you below.
1. First, make sure your eBook is ready to be published and distributed to the public.
2.. If you already have a Barnes and Noble account you can consolidate it with your NOOK Press Account. You will have to go to NOOKPress.com and login. You can login and follow the instructions on the screen to consolidate the accounts.
2. If you don’t already have a BN.com or PubIt! account you can go to NookPress and create a new one.
4. Once your file is uploaded you can click on ‘Create Project’. It takes a few minutes for the systemt to import and process your file.
5. Upload your Cover Image, NOOK Book Details, Title & Description, Categories
Rights & Pricing, Other Information, and Editorial Reviews.
6. You will be asked for an eBook-specific ISBN. If you have one, you can put it here. It’s not necessary to use an ISBN, but if you do decide to purchase one we recommend buying directly from Bowker’s MyIdenfiers.com.
7. You’ll be asked for an address where NOOK Press will send the tax papers if your book sells.
8. You will be asked for your bank information and tax id.
9. If you are a corporation you will be easked to enter you EIN. If you are an individual you will
need to enter your Social Security.
10. It can up to a few days for NOOK Press to verify your payment information. You will get an email after your payment information and tax information have been verified.
11. Once you get the verification you can publish your book and start sharing it with the world!
Lover of books. CEO & founder of Bibliocrunch. Love storytelling in all its forms. Formerly TIME. I'm a new media entrepreneur who has worked in the media industry for 11 years. My mission is simple – to innovate the publishing industry with technology. My company has been featured in BBC World News, Money Magazine, Bloomberg, Consumer Reports, Forbes, WSJ, MediaBistro, PBS, Columbia Journalism Review, The Next Web, Publishers Weekly, and a bunch of other places. Bibliocrunch was also selected as The Next Big Thing in media by the Paley Center. I also used to run a popular South Asian culture blog called Divanee. Before I ran my own company and became a mom, I used to be on the board for several literacy organizations, and wrote a LOT more. Hopefully, when things are calmer I can go back to that! :)
