The last thing authors want is to struggle to find the best self-publishing service. With our new site, they won’t have to.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
The Internet has changed the way people communicate, and in more ways than one. Even the way books are published has changed a great deal sense the advent of the Online Age. Where once an author’s only option was to patiently seek the services of a traditional publishing company, there are now self-publishing companies aplenty, meaning that anyone can have their work made available for others to read. With so many self-publishers available, however, selecting the best one can prove daunting to some authors. A new site called SelfPublishingReviews.net offers authors the resources they need to make informed decisions.
In fact, the sole mission of the site is to empower authors and aspiring authors to feel good about their self-publishing decision. Jason Kay, the founder of the site, says SelfPublishingReviews.net is meant to be a resource for writers. “Penning a book is challenging and time-consuming work, and when it’s over, most authors are understandably eager to have their words read,” says Kay. “The last thing they want is to struggle to find the best self-publishing service. With our new site, they won’t have to.”
Indeed, SelfPublishingReviews.net makes information about self-publishing companies readily available. The site contains reviews of some of the top-ranked and most popular self-publishing sites on the Web, including pricing information. Currently, the site features reviews of popular publishing sites like Blurb, CreateSpace, Lulu, and eBookit.
According to Kay, these reviews are helpful for authors and aspiring authors because they are actually written by authors. “The reviews on the site are all submitted by those who have first-hand experience with these self-publishing sites,” he confirms. “We also encourage users who actually try a self-publishing service to come back to SelfPublishingReviews.net and leave their feedback.” It is this communal approach, with authors sharing their experiences and advice, which makes the site uniquely helpful, Kay enthuses.
The end goal is, indeed, for the site to be helpful. Kay draws attention to the fact that, in addition to reviews, the site also includes more general, informational articles about how to select the right self-publishing service. “The bottom line is that the hard work an author puts into a book makes the selection of a good publishing company utterly crucial,” says Kay. “We want to provide them with the information they need to make the best decision about self-publishing.”
