Here is this morning’s news from the publishing and self-publishing world.
Publishers Weekly bi-monthly trade edition for self-published authors, PW Select, will now be published on a monthly basis.
Lulu, one of the biggest DIY self-publishing service companies, has expanded its array of free templates for authors.
Smashwords, another self-publishing service, but with a primary focus on distribution of e-books, has just launched a Series Discovery Tool. Authors will now be able to access the tool from their Smashwords dashboard and link books in a series to help improve discoverability and the sharing of a book’s metadata with retailers.
