"We believe that everyone has a story to tell, and you learn how to write a novel by sitting down and writing it," said Executive NaNoWriMo Director Grant Faulkner. "The same do-it-yourself attitude is at the heart of indie book publishing, which is why we're happy that BookBaby is providing resources for NaNo authors to take that next big step: publishing and finding an audience of readers."

According to Faulkner, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel. NaNoWriMo challenges participants to write 50,000 words of a new novel between November 1 and 30, and over 340,000 writers took up the challenge in 2012.

Distributing eBooks in over 185 countries through 12 online retail stores, including Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble and more, BookBaby offers a full array of services including eBook formatting, cover design, and distribution, as well as short run book printing. BookBaby is the sister company of online music powerhouse CD Baby. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, CD Baby is the world's largest online distributor of independent music.

In launching BookBaby in early 2011, the company is taking those same services and powerful resources to the digital publishing world to help independent authors and publishers accomplish their goals.
