StreetLib Jamaica is a publishing portal for authors and publishers in Jamaica to digitally distribute their books around the world, with no up-front fees.
Books can be published in English and most other languages, and will be distributed to ebook retailers and digital libraries worldwide, including to the world’s biggest ebook retailers like Amazon, Google Play, Kobo and Apple.
StreetLib is a global gateway distributor of digital books, based in Italy, and serving authors and publishers worldwide.
Established in 2006, StreetLib has the widest international reach of any digital distributor. Authors and publishers can make their books digitally available to readers in almost every country in the world, and get paid for every sale. There are no upfront fees - StreetLib simply deducts a 10% commission from net and pays you the rest.
At its simplest, a digital book, or ebook, is a digital file of a book or manuscript that can be bought, downloaded and read on a smartphone, an e-reader or a laptop or desktop computer by anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection. No printing costs, no storage costs, no shipping costs.
In Jamaica there are 1.6 million internet users, out of a population of nearly 3 million, which is a small but still lucrative market for authors and publishers. Internet penetration is only at 55% in Jamaica so plenty of room to grow.
But your books uploaded to the StreetLib Jamaica portal will be available to buy as ebooks in Jamaica and across the Caribbean via the StreetLib international store, as well as globally.
StreetLib Jamaica offers free formatting tools, if needed, to turn your book or manuscript into a digital file.
Authors and publishers can upload a single book at a time, or use our batch upload option for large quantities of titles.
The StreetLib Jamaica upload portal dashboard is in English, Italian, Spanish, Hindi, Telegu and Tamil.
But the books themselves can be uploaded in any language, including indigenous Caribbean languages like Jamaican Patois (Creole), and sold through the StreetLib international store, as well as being distributed to any retailers that supports that language.
StreetLib currently hosts over a quarter million ebooks. Add yours for free. Earn money from every sale.
