New Look. New Website.
ScribbCrib Blog / September 19, 2015

As part of our commitment to our authors, we wanted to re-deisgn the ScribbCrib website to reflect the future of the business. Our focus has always been on providing a place to allow independent talent a chance to have their stories told, and we believe that the change in our website will allow us to continue to pursue that goal. With these changes, we’ll be able to focus more on marketing our authors and bringing in new books to the ScribbCrib family. One of the first things you’ll notice is that our web store is gone. We have moved all of the eBooks over to Amazon to ensure a wider audience has access to our author’s works, and it’ll allow us to streamline publishing of new books. You can purchase any books in our library on Amazon. For customers who have made past purchases, don’t worry! We still have your information on file so if you ever run into a problem, such as a need to re-download eBooks, receipts, etc., you can contact us and we’ll be happy to assist. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, and continues to do so as we move forward.
