When Howey negotiated a print-only deal for SILO it was assumed to be a sign of things to come. It wasn't. Publishers now run from print-only deals like vampires from full-spectrum lamps.

This might provide the perfect opportunity for Barnes and Noble.

1) Set up an print-only imprint
2) Sign print-only rights from successful indie authors like HW Ward, Hugh Howey, A.G. Riddle, Liliana Hart, Courtney Milan, Bella Andre etc...

Amazon is wildly successful with its imprints. Mostly through ebooks.

B&N could be successful too with physical books.
