Smashwords: How Libraries Can Launch Community Publishing Initiatives with Self-Published Ebooks

Smashwords: How Libraries Can Launch Community Publishing Initiatives with Self-Published Ebooks | Xlibris Publishing Community | Scoop.it

Mark Coker: Libraries are uniquely qualified to orchestrate community resources and talent to help local writers become professional self-publishers. By holding seminars and classes, and by bringing local authors together face to face with readers and aspiring authors, libraries can help unleash the talent locked inside the minds and fingertips of their local community's writers.  They can also help ensure a steady future supply of library-friendly authors who will want to supply their ebooks to libraries.
