Publishing Service Index: January 2016

Publishing Service Index: January 2016

This is the first PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for 2016. IngramSpark has held on to its number one position at the top of the index ahead of CreateSpace. Kindle Direct Publishing swaps places with Smashwords. Kobo Writing Life moves up two places to sixth, its highest position yet in the index.   Lightning Source continues gradual slow slide, now close

Publishing Service Index: November/December 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for November/December and will be the last published update of 2015. IngramSpark looks to have won the seesaw battle with CreateSpace that marked the index over the past six months. The Ingram-owned publishing platform has returned to the top, but with a wider margin than we have seen for some time.

Publishing Service Index: October 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for October 2015. We are a little late with this month’s index, but it does include our latest review of Epigraph Publishing Service and all feedback up until the end of October. For the last two months IngramSpark had edged ahead of CreateSpace. However, the Amazon-owned platform returns to the top of

Publishing Service Index: August 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for August 2015. Once again IngramSpark and CreateSpace exchange places at the top spot of the index this month, but only by a whisker.   The most notable change is Lightning Source’s (LSI) continued slippage on the index and for the first time it drops outside the top five positions. It should be

Publishing Service Index: July 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for July 2015. CreateSpace has replaced IngramSpark at the top spot of the index this month, but only by a whisker.   Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) has lost some significant ground to the top two and some of this is down to negative feedback TIPM has received. Unfortunately much

Publishing Service Index: June 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for June 2015. IngramSpark continues to occupy the top spot ahead of CreateSpace and Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). In fact the top nine positions remain unchanged from last month. Kobo Writing Life enters the top ten for the first time ever and it comes at the expense of Lulu.   Kazoo Publishing

Publishing Service Index: May 2015

This is the PUBLISHING SERVICE INDEX for May 2015. IngramSpark holds on to its number one position ahead of CreateSpace and Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP). Lightning Source (LSI) continues to show gradual slippage. I suspect much of this is now down to new self-published authors to Ingram’s direct channels choosing Spark over LSI or being actively encouraged to go this
