eBook Platform Screwpulp Raises $330K in Investment

screwpulpSelf-publishing startup Screwpulp has secured $330,000 in seed investment. The eBook publishing platform plans to use the money to improve the site’s shopping and reading experience for readers, as well as to make the publishing tools for authors better.

“We feel that the traditional book publishing model is daunting and leaves many great books to gather dust,” stated Richard Billings, CEO of Screwpulp. “Screwpulp’s platform empowers authors with the tools they need to publish, market and profit from their work. Additionally, our demand-based pricing model gives clear indications to readers about the quality of a book’s content and puts the power of a book’s success into the proper hands, the readers.”

The company also revealed that it is expanding its board. Brad Silver, CEO of Quire, and Joe Wikert, formerly of O’Reilly Media will join the board.
