The program, valued at $99, enables teachers to sell their eBooks through the Borders eBook store, powered by Kobo, as well as other major eBook retailers, and receive a complimentary paperback version of their book — part of the service's new Print on Demand feature — all for the special price of $75.

The BORDERS – GET PUBLISHED™ co-branded service allows users to create an eBook in a few simple steps using the intuitive BookBrewer tools and then make that content available for sale within a few days on and other major eBook outlets, including, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks and Google Books. Users can easily load, format and have their content displayed across a number of technology platforms, including the iPhone ®, iPad™, Android™-powered tablets, as well as a variety of eReaders, notably the Kobo™ Wireless eReader, Kobo™ eReader, Aluratek Libre Pro and Velocity ® Micro Cruz™ Reader. Importantly, BORDERS – GET PUBLISHED™ Powered by BookBrewer is the only retailer-aligned eBook self publishing service that includes an integrated Print on Demand feature, which enables users to create an automated print version of the book and allows them to buy copies for as low as $4 and mark them up to sell to others independently at a profit. In addition, this is the only service that allows authors to download a DRM-free version of their eBook to share directly with students, family or friends. Three eBook publishing packages are available, ranging from $19.99 to $39.99, and authors may also purchase the Print on Demand package, available for $49.99 for a limited time only.
