NOOK Press Promises ‘Innovative Publishing Platform’ for Authors

With electronic publishing the biggest force in all of publishing today, Tuesday’s announcement from Barnes & Noble’s NOOK division is being warmly embraced by independent authors and writers everywhere.

Promising an “innovative new publishing platform,” NOOK today induced something called NOOK Press, a self-publishing platform offering authors a fast, easy and free way to write, edit, collaborate and publish eBooks.

NOOK Press will reportedly make it even easier for authors to focus on writing and reaching new readers.

NOOK Press builds on the success of PubIt!, Barnes & Noble’s original self-publishing platform. In just two and a half years since its launch, PubIt! has propelled many writers to become national bestselling authors, and the program continues to achieve incredible growth.

“We’re thrilled to bring all the new and exciting features of NOOK Press to existing PubIt! authors and new writers looking for a quick, effective and free one-stop self-publishing platform that delivers high-quality eBooks to millions of book-loving NOOK customers,” explains Theresa Horner, Vice President of Digital Content at NOOK Media. “NOOK Press authors bring variety, new voices and value to NOOK’s ecosystem that allows us to continue to offer our customers a great selection of noteworthy eBooks by independent authors at unbeatable prices.”
