Weekly Write-Up: 27th March 2019

by Tom Ashford

Welcome to the SPF Weekly Write-Up, where each Wednesday we’ll be collecting together the self-publishing news of the week so you don’t have to.

This week: eBooks2go raises £1,000,000 in investment, and the SPF Foundation winners are announced.

eBooks2go Inc. Raises $1million in Funding

eBooks2go, an Illinois company that offers ebook conversion services, as well as ebook distribution, marketing, web development, editing and cover designs, has just secured one million dollars in investment in order to expand its reach in North America. This funding will allow for eBooks2go to invest in new technologies such as Blockchain for smart contracts as well as AI solutions for Content Analysis and Content Creation.

Whether these new technologies will benefit indie authors beyond what’s already available, or if eBooks2go will just join the rest of the companies offering paid indie author support, remains to be seen.

SPF Foundation Winners

The winners of the 2019 SPF Foundation have been announced! They are:

Ruby Loren
Elle Thorpe
Michele Cooke
C.S. Harte

We had over seventy applicants, so congratulations to the successful four. They each get lifetime access to the SPF 101 and Ads for Authors courses, plus $2500 in services from Reedsy.
