Bloomington, Ind., [August 1, 2008] – WritingRoom.com, an online writing
community welcoming all walks of writers, now offers members and aspiring authors
the opportunity to publish with the launch of their DIY publishing solution, PublishingRoom.com.
“So many authors struggle with trying to get published,” said Lindsay Preston, founder
of WritingRoom.com. “Now with PublishingRoom.com, these writers can not only see
their works in print, but also gain the unique opportunity to market their books
to a built in audience at WritingRoom.com.”
Born from the creative partnership between WritingRoom.com and Author Solutions
(ASI), PublishingRoom.com is the natural evolution of the fast growing DIY publishing
experience. Authors who choose to publish with the help of PublishingRoom’s free
online publishing wizard, can easily upload their manuscripts, design a personalized
cover, select pricing and royalties, and publish their book in less than an hour.
With the help of PublishingRoom’s extensive Services Store, budding authors can
also pick and choose only the options that will best suit their publishing needs,
including channel book distribution and marketing support. Unlike traditional publishers,
PublishingRoom.com grants their authors the unique advantage of remaining in control
of their work.
“By partnering with ASI, PublishingRoom.com will bring its authors and WritingRoom.com
members the best self-publishing service available,” Preston said. “(ASI) is the
best in the business. Their technology, customer support, and expertise in the area
cannot be matched.”
