D is for...Digital Book World! Today, I want to endorse another website that I find extremely helpful and think would be useful for other people in the publishing world as well. Digital Book World (DBW) provides advice on the digital publishing world. Everything from deciding how to publish your piece, the newest technology available for ereaders, and a great deal about ebook evolution.
With the development of ebooks, the work of an author has suddenly become much more self-driven. Instead of having a publisher telling you what to do, you are responsible for promoting yourself. Self-published authors feel this push even more than others. With how fast technology evolves and recreates itself, it can be a bit intimidating to jump into the pool. Not only do you have to learn about current trends, but you have to keep learning as new technology changes how the world approaches ebooks. DBW is an indispensable website for keeping up with the latest publishing news and is invaluable for an author struggling to keep their head above water in the digital publishing world.
If you have any interest in ebook publishing, whether you are an author, editor, publisher, or avid reader, then you need to check out their website and, if you are smart, you will subscribe to their newsletter:
P.S. No, this is not a commissioned post. Digital Book World had absolutely no direct influence in the writing of this post. I just really benefit from their posts and thought I would share!
