Make An eBook Using FastPencil

Digital publishing technology company FastPencil has a new publishing platform to make your own eBooks. The company announced the new platform today which has various different tiers. Self-published authors can use the tool for free to make a book and publish it to the Kindle Store, iBooks, Nook and distribute through Ingram. They can also make up their own imprint using the tool.

There is also a tier in which authors can pay for design and editing services. Publishers can use the tool to format and distribute eBooks. In addition to these DIY tools, publishers can now license FastPencil software to convert content to an eBook.

Steve Wilson, CEO and co-founder of FastPencil, explained: “FastPencil is proud to offer a customizable platform to create books, manage content and develop imprints with unique branding. In addition to our do-it-yourself author services, we have created a licensable platform that is customizable, making it easy to build a business, whether you are a publisher looking to publish a series of books on your own imprint or an enterprise looking to deploy a publishing solution company-wide.”
