New Self-Pub Platform Launched – BiblioCrunch

I got an email yesterday from Miral Sattar, the developer behind BiblioCrunch. She’s taking her new self-pub platform out of stealth mode and into public beta.

BiblioCrunch is similar to Feedbooks, with a few elements of GoodReads thrown in.

The main purpose of the site is to help authors create eBooks, but it is also intended to help share them. You can sell your eBook via the BiblioCrunch eBookstore, yes, but you can just as easily give them away. the site is designed to help you share your work via social networks like Twitter, Facebook, etc.

There’s one key way that BiblioCrunch beats Feedbooks, Smashwords, and most other self-pub platforms; it offers more than just converting your source files into eBooks. You can also use BiblioCrunch to connect with cover designers, book editors, and you can even find some publishers keeping an eye on the site. Who knows, they might be interested in signing a new author.
