Digital publishing startup Xlibris Publishing has created a new blog to celebrate its 50th birthday.
The brand’s founder and chief executive, Peter Lee, said it was a fitting tribute to the company’s legacy of innovation, creativity and customer service.
“It is a great feeling to be back on a blog,” Mr Lee said.
Xlibris has grown from an idea that Mr Lee was a digital bookseller back to being the publisher of the most visited online bookseller, Amazon, and a pioneer in the online ebook market.
Mr Lee said he was inspired by the fact the blog had become so popular, and the response he had received to the new content was “wonderful”.
“We’re all on the same page, and there is so much we want to do for the blog,” he said.
“The way it works is you subscribe to it, and you can choose from the most interesting and best content from our team of highly skilled and passionate writers.”
You get access to all the content from all the different departments and agencies that are involved in our business.
If you want to be part of our blog, you can subscribe for $9.99 a year.
“The blog’s content is curated by a team of independent bloggers, with more than 70 contributors.
They are all passionate about their work and provide up-to-date insight into their industries and their careers.
At the heart of the blog is a dedicated team of writers and writers’ assistants who write each day about the topics and events that have driven their passions.
The blog also features posts on the latest book trends and news.
It has also developed a new product and service called XLibris Bookstore that will be rolled out in 2018.
Mr Lee described Xlibrises business model as the “gold standard” of online publishing.
He said it has been a significant time for the company, as digital booksellers were struggling to maintain and grow their online presence.”
It’s not easy, it’s very difficult to maintain a presence on the internet, it costs a lot, and I’m sure it will cost us a lot more,” he told News.au.
But the growth and success of the company has been driven by the generosity of its readers, he said, and he hopes their support continues to be there.”
There’s been so much passion and love for the brand from the readers and we’ve been so lucky to have so many people come to us over the years,” Mr Le said.
