Nice Coverage of Author Solutions

Author_solutions_3The business section of today's Indy Star featured this nice article on Indiana-based Author Solutions.  One of the leaders in the self-publishing world, Author Solutions is the parent company of Author House, iUniverse and the Wordclay authoring tool.

Highlights from the article that caught my eye:

The acquisition of iUniverse means that Author Solutions has more than 80,000 titles in its list, "making it the world's largest self-publishing company in number of book titles published and placed in distribution."

"In its first three months, Wordclay attracted 14,000 users who submitted 4,000 manuscripts via the software that can convert text documents into formatted books."

"In 2008, Author Solutions expects to publish one of every 15 ISBNs issued in the United States, or about 20,000 titles."

"At Author Solutions, 45 percent of its authors are older than 55."
