June 18, 2018 -- Nashville, TN. IngramSpark, Ingram's award-winning, independent publishing platform, celebrates a five-year milestone and is offering free title setup on print and ebooks throughout the month of July, 2018, using promo code SPARK5.
In 2013, IngramSpark launched and thousands of independent authors and publishers saw the opportunity and came on board in the first year. In 2015, Spark was named Best Self-Publishing Service by The Independent Publishing Magazine and in 2017 was awarded Distinguished Service to the Literary Community by the Authors Guild. Now, IngramSpark celebrates five years of sustainable growth and helping indie authors and publishers sell their books to the world. IngramSpark prints and distributes globally through Lightning Source, Ingram's print-on-demand and distribution business.
As a gift, IngramSpark will offer free title setup during the month of July and will host a birthday party for 100 customers that will include educational sessions from IngramSpark's director, Robin Cutler, Julie Schoerke, Founder of JKS Communications and Karen Hayes, Co-owner of Parnassus Books. Guests will tour Ingram's Lightning Source print-on-demand facility where IngramSpark books are printed.
"I was blown away by the quality of the product. I will absolutely use IngramSpark for every novel I have planned moving forward, without question," says Kenneth Curtis, publisher of In Service to the Senator.
"IngramSpark allows me to be in control! I control the content of my book, the title, and my publishing timeline," says Larry Kryske, author of Churchill Without Blood, Sweat, or Tears.
"These five years have been wonderful, thanks to the passion and dedication of our many thousands of talented authors and publishers. IngramSpark clients create fantastic books that do well in the global marketplace in both print and electronic formats. When you couple that with the expertise and support of the IngramSpark team, it's a powerful combination and brings success for everyone," said Robin Cutler. "Free title setup during July is one way we're giving back to the community that helped us reach our fifth birthday."
