Following our recent announcement about adding Ingram to PublishDrive’s distribution network, we have yet another new channel to talk about! The team is excited to have iReader join our expansive list of store partners. Here’s everything you need to know below.
What is iReader?

If you’re familiar with the reading app Dreame, iReader uses a similar business model that brought success to numerous authors and publishers. (Dreame was PublishDrive's #1 fastest-growing store that brought indies 92,441% more digital book sales in 2020.) Read our guide on how iReader’s episodic subscription model works.
Why iReader Through PublishDrive?
Our partnership offers PublishDrive indies exclusive featuring and merchandising opportunities, such as in-app marketing and Facebook promotions. This is on top of a suite of publishing tools you can use for iReader, like running price promotions or setting up pre-orders.
For publishers, we also got bulk book import, management, and analytics features for streamlining the publishing process.
Without PublishDrive, indies with fewer titles would not be able to publish on iReader. For bigger publishers, manual negotiations are required. With PublishDrive, skip the administrative talks and get your book(s) out to iReader immediately – without exerting much energy. Let’s go over how that’s done.
How to Distribute Your Book to iReader
If you’re already distributing through PublishDrive:
- All you have to do is sit back and relax. Your book(s) will be automatically sent out to iReader. (To opt-out, switch off the store under your account: log in.)

If you’re not on PublishDrive:
