I've recently discovered a fairly new site called OffTheBookShelf.com via an editor friend of mine who invited me along. I think it's a very interesting idea. It was created by writers and allows authors to build their own online bookstore free. The authors sell their books - ebooks, audiobooks and printed books- at a price they set themselves and OffTheBookShelf.com only takes a small charge for each book plus banking fees. See some examples of the fee structure here. They also provide tools to help you create your book cover and convert your Word document to the epub format needed. There is a one-time set-up fee of $35 for printed books to set up the book with their printer and add the barcode to your back cover. Whether you get hundreds of printed books or half a dozen, it's the same fee, paid once. Nothing extra for the ebooks or audiobooks of course. I've spoken with Scott Weisenthal, the founder. He seems a genuinely nice guy who really wants to offer a service to writers that makes getting published within everyone's grasp and at a price and profit margin they're happy with. He's also building a social network within the site. Everyone has a profile, a blog, and access to marketing tools and a forum. Transactions are done via Paypal on both the buyers and sellers side. There's a 60 second quick tour on the homepage and a longer webinar that goes into more detail. http://offthebookshelf.com/ Oh, and if you want to be a star, there's a TV campaign in the pipeline. He'll be looking for a winner amongst the members to star in it.
