Barnes & Noble Launches NOOK Press

Barnes & Noble has relaunched its self-publishing arm as NOOK Press. Over at AppNewser, you can watch NOOK Press video tutorials.

The bookseller has told authors using the bookseller’s old PubIt! program that they need to sign up for a NOOK Press account. The new tools were designed through a partnership with FastPencil. Here’s more about royalties at NOOK Press:

NOOK Press authors can price their titles between $0.99 and $199.99 and receive a competitive royalty based on the given price.  For NOOK Press NOOK Books priced at or between $2.99 and $9.99, authors receive 65 percent of the list price for sold content. For those priced at $2.98 or less, or $10.00 or more, authors receive 40 percent of the list price.  NOOK Press authors will be compensated from the list price they set with no additional charges, regardless of file size.
