I’d like to invite you, writers who publish, to a new collaboration. We’re combining traditions which still work with innovations our readers are already using.
ePub is short for modern publishing. It’s also a format when you put the dot in front of it: .epub.
To get a good feel for the new landscape, I recommend you read Craig Mod’s article here:
I’ll be sharing some of his points as we journey.
Everything is a work in progress.
No matter what you think about writing or publishing, we are now in a changed world. This world awaits our input and our participation. I find it exhilarating — and profitable — in ways I barely imagined. Collaboration is key.
An ePub Club is a group of writers who support each other in a myriad of ways. We are helping each other grow more discoverable. We are using many shiny new tools and lots of good-ol’ traditional tools.
I’m Suzanna Stinnett, a book author and traveler in the epub world. I am the founder of Bay Area Bloggers Society, an O’Reilly Media-sponsored user group that meets locally to flatten out the learning curves of tech. We are forming ePub Clubs through the user group in our local area. You can do that too.
