Bowker this week launched a new web resource aimed at assisting self-published authors.
The site—selfpublishedauthor.com—offers tools, advice, and resources to help writers navigate the publishing process, and aims to serve a growing number of authors who are bypassing traditional publishing.
“Bowker has tracked extraordinary growth in the number of self-published works over the past five years,” Beat Barblan, Bowker director of identifier services, said in a statement. “There are thousands of authors who need access to advice, guidance and resources. Selfpublishedauthor.com is designed to be their partner, helping them bring their books to market in the most effective way.”
