FastPencil Self-Publishing Platform Enters Beta

Jul 17, 2009

FastPencil has launched the beta version of a self-publishing platform that allows authors to write, share, publish, and sell their books. The eponymous service offers writers a single platform on which they can write a book, share it with friends, and publish it either as an ebook or a paper hardcopy. FastPencil Basic, which includes book templates, the writing platform, and admission into the FastPencil forums, is free. Publishing and consulting services require premium versions of the service.
