100 sites for fiction writers: #90 - ePublish a Book

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

ePublish a Book

Everyone has to start somewhere, and that includes fiction writers. Today, more and more fiction writers are doing their own thing, skipping traditional publishers altogether or working with those publishers as well as self publishing their own books and e-books. For the beginner, all of this can be a scary process. How do you get started?

To help with all that, author Patricia de Hemricourt has come up with the website ePublish a Book.

Like similar sites, here you can catch up on Publishing Industry News and legal information concerning writing and publishing. You can also look into Resources for the writer, as well as checking out the latest information about e-books and book promotion.

For writers who already have an e-book or book to promote, the site also offers a chance for reviews. So check out the List of Reviewers at ePublish a Book.

A lot of what is offered at ePublish a Book might sound familiar to those experienced with the many writing sites available on the Web, but where I feel this site shines is in its focus upon beginning writers.

Beginning writers are often worried all the time. They are concerned about grammar and spelling, formatting, technology, meeting other writers or editors, etc. etc. This is where ePublish a Book can come in handy, by explaining the confusing and unknown, and by bringing knowledge directly to those beginners.

I wish I had known about such a site years ago, because I would have found in it a treasure trove of information.
