IngramSpark Is Coming: a new interface that acts as portal to Lightning Source by Aaron Shepard
1. Well, not exactly a new service, but a new interface that acts as portal to bothLightning Source for print on demand and—starting in August—CoreSource for ebook distribution. If you were planning to sign up with Lightning or CoreSource soon, you should wait to see what IngramSpark offers. But if you already work with one or both, you may find less to interest you.
Basically, IngramSpark will substitute for the labyrinthine Web interfaces now in place, making it much easier for small publishers to sign up and get up to speed. But at least for now, it will not replace the interface for existing accounts. IngramSpark accounts will be separate, with slightly different terms, including required standard discounts for wholesale distribution. (And, no, contrary to rumor, existing Lightning accounts will not be migrated to ones with those more restrictive terms.)
