From IngramSparks to those of us who publish through them:
IngramSpark is taking a necessary stand to uphold the integrity of and reduce bias against independently published works. To align with our industry's needs for content integrity, we will actively remove print content from our catalog that does harm to buyers and affects the reputations of our publishers and retail and library partners.
As of April 27, 2020, the below criteria describes the types of content that may not be accepted going forward:
Summaries, workbooks, abbreviations, insights, or similar type content without permission from the original author.
Books containing blank pages exceeding ten percent, notepads, scratchpads, journals, or similar type content.
Books or content that mirror/mimic popular titles, including without limiting, similar covers, cover design, title, author names, or similar type content.
Books that are misleading or likely to cause confusion by the buyer, including without limiting, inaccurate descriptions and cover art.
Books listed at prices not reflective of the book's market value.
Books scanned from original versions where all or parts contain illegible content to the detriment of the buyer.
Books created using artificial intelligence or automated processes.
We reserve the right to remove content that fits the above criteria without prior notice to the publisher. Any fees paid on behalf of publishers for titles removed due to the above criteria will not be refunded.This change of service is effective April 27, 2020 and is reflected in our IngramSpark User Guide V4.
You can find more information about what kinds of titles will be under review here.
We are committed to supporting authors and publishers for the quality content they've produced and continuing to provide our retail and library partners with high quality, trusted catalog feeds.
