Facebook Your Writing Process

fastpencil23.jpgToday the self-publishing platform FastPencil announced the addition of new social networking tools, plugging Twitter and Facebook straight into the writing process.

Earlier this week, The Huffington Post linked up with Facebook Connect to create a socially-networked news-sharing platform. Now FastPencil is using the same technology to create a socially-networked writing site. With the new “scribble, tweet or share” tool, writers can instantly interact with Facebook and Twitter friends while writing–giving lonely authors a chance to share (or perhaps over-share) their process.

Here’s a statement from FastPencil CEO Steve Wilson, from the release: “FastPencil strips out the complexity of the publishing process allowing anyone to write a book, have it published and delivered to their doorstep for under $10. By integrating with Facebook and Twitter we are making it easier for you to work with your established network of friends, colleagues and followers.”
