Barnes & Noble Opens Doors for Self-Published Writers

After years of being kept out of major bookstores, self-published writers have a new place in Barnes & Noble–the bookseller has opened its doors to authors in the PubIt! self-publishing program.

The bookseller will create a bestseller list for PubIt! authors and include these new authors in the “Read In Store” program.

eBookNewser has more: “Since it launched four months ago, Barnes & Noble’s self-publishing software PubIt! has attracted more than 11,000 independent publishers and authors and published more than 65,000 eBooks … To promote this expansion, B&N is hosting in-store events teaching authors how to use PubIt! The first in-store event will take place tonight in the chain’s Santa Monica store.”
