Flash! Sony adds store for self-publishers

One of the most important elements of Amazon’s commitment to e-books (at least as far as I’m concerned) has been the Digital Text Platform (DTP).  That allows people to self-publish for the Kindle store. 

There have been other places to self-publish, but being in the Amazon store?  That’s a real opportunity.

The books aren’t all the same quality, of course, but there are some great works there…including ones by authors who have been successful in paperbook editions.

Now, Sony, which is looking to reinvigorate its e-book reader presence with a new model with wireless book downloads, has announced a similar self-publishing system.

They are partnering with both Smashwords and Author Solutions

I was made aware of this with this article.

This is Sony’s press release.

Things keep getting more and more interesting.  🙂
