Bluebird Books, a small publisher that specializes in indie book titles, has announced plans to print books on a $100 budget for the holidays.
Bluebird says the idea for the project came from an email from publisher and co-founder Mike Denton.
Denton told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette he was trying to make it more affordable for indie book authors and their readers.
“There are a lot of people who have to make a lot more money than I do, and that’s okay,” Denton said.
Blue Bird has been in business for three years.
Dutton said he’s also considering making the books in-house.
“I love it,” Dutton added.
“It’s a good way to make money, too.”
The publisher is looking for books on the $10-$12 price range.
Blue Birds book selection is expected to be a mix of hardcover and paperback books, with no hardcover books over $100.
Bluebirds books have sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide.

They have books in print, ebooks, and audiobooks.
In the past few years, the company has published several best-selling books, including The Bluebird, which won the 2016 Book Awards for best science fiction novel.
