Publish Ebook, Print & Audio Under One Roof!
As pioneers in self-publishing, we’ve done it again. We’ve expanded PublishDrive’s capacity and added print books plus audiobooks to the platform. Indies can cater to readers’ needs and reach new audiences!

Why Print & Audio Books?
These are lucrative formats to get into. Print-on-demand services are estimated to be $150 billion dollars by 2022 (Gen Z loves print!). Audio is the fastest-growing format in online publishing.
