As a result of this, Bookmundo is on schedule with its network of bookstores to reach full coverage in Germany.
“Kick Off“ of OSIANDER with top self-published author Jo Berger
The first book of OSIANDER is one from a successful self-published author: Jo Berger. From March 1st, her new book, with the suitable title ’Kick Off’, will be available in all OSIANDER bookstores and for sale in all online bookstores in Germany.
Bookmundo is on its way to full coverage in Germany
Within the Bookmundo community of bookstores, OSIANDER teams up with existing Bookmundo partners like bookstore chains Mayersche (Nord Rhein Westfalen) and Heymann (North-Germany) and individual bookstores like Wortwerke, Buecherwurm and Kastle. Peter Paul van Bekkum, CEO of Mybestseller: “We are very pleased to welcome OSIANDER, bringing Bookmundo a big step closer to our ultimate goal: full coverage of Bookmundo in Germany.” More bookstores are expected to join Bookmundo very soon.
New opportunities for self-published authors
The Bookmundo network of bookstores makes new opportunities for self-published authors possible. “For example, getting good selling titles physically present in over 150 bookstores. Bestsellers can thus be created for authors for which this is normally not common practice. For bookstores it means they can benefit from top authors of other Bookmundo partners,” says van Bekkum.
