 History


Electronic publishing has been a welcome innovation to the writer, offering alternatives to the major publishing houses.

Electronic publishing has been a welcome innovation to the writer, offering alternatives to the major publishing houses. The publishing industry has become an incredibility competitive industry. The major publishers are on the lookout for the next best seller, at the expense of some quality smaller market books. Money has become the major motivating factor in choosing works to print.

Electronic publishing is a fairly new innovation. Electronic publishing should not be confused with the electricity that printers use to run their presses, and all their other office machines for that matter.

Electronic publishing, also know as “e-publishing”, uses the Internet to help writers distribute their works. One major innovation in this area has been “e-books” which can be downloaded onto several different types of electronic devices and perused at the reader’s leisure.

One on the most exciting developments in electronic publishing has been the advent of books on demand. The exciting part of this for writers is that they can reach the consumer directly. Writers have the option of having individual copies sent to customers as they are ordered, or ordering a small quantity to market themselves. The only books printed are the ones that are ordered. This eliminates the risk of printing and shipping books that are unwanted.

This innovation definitely heralds the arrival of the future for the printing industry. Authors no longer need to worry about being unpublished. You do not need to appeal to the masses to be a published author. This technology also allows you see how many people are interested in your work.
