Apple Reveals New Service For Authors To Sell Their Books Directly In The iBookstore
(MacLife) — Are you a budding author? The next Stephen King? Or an author currently looking to cut out the middle man as you rollout your own books? It looks like your time has come — Apple has released information on self-publishing for the iBookstore! We have to say we were really excited to hear about the iBooks app on our new iPads and the iBookstore that went along with it. Why? Simple, Apple or its partners generally create technologies that empower people to generate content in all kinds of ways and then monetize it. The iBookstore is what iTunes was to Music and Apps — a way to publish your own books and sell them without a publisher, agent, etc. Once we saw the possibilities in iBooks we immediately queried Apple for information on how an individual could participate and over a month ago they had no answer, but today they do.
