In its next step toward becoming one of the world's largest content distribution networks for both print and digital books, Publish On Demand Global (PODG), has recently announced that they have joined forces with Libiro.com. Libiro, a for-author, by-author community that that focuses on selling only books published by indie authors, small presses, and independent publishers – a movement that PODG also backs..
The deal was finalized during PODG's recent participation at Book Expo America held this past June in New York City, NY.
Libiro will allow all digital content distributed through PODG’s network to be made available for sale on their platform to any reader with an Android, Apple iOS or Windows 8 device. Additionally the platform makes their full store front available via their website, http://www.libiro.com/, for those who prefer desktop viewing.
Managing Director of PODG, Ms. Kait Neese, commented, "We are very excited about our partnership with Libiro and their co-founder, Ben Galley. Not only is Ben an author himself but he comes from a tech background and understands the importance this will play in the coming years in regards to selling books direct to readers online.”

It is a pleasure to have their authors on our store, and we are positive our readers are going to be absolutely thrilled for the expanded titles choices now available to them." He continued, “PODG and Libiro share the same goals when it comes to supporting and championing indie authors. We look forward to building a strong partnership with them over the coming months.”
