PubIt! – Barnes and Noble Self Publishing

Barnes and Noble, a store that sells books and has recently released the Nook e-reader, recently announced ‘PubIt’, a form of online self publishing.  I’ve mentioned Lulu.com before and their service that I’ve tried with their publishing on demand, but what Barnes and Noble is doing is getting rid of the printing completely.  Authors can create their masterpieces and upload them to be sold as an electronic book.  This means that self published authors will not have to shell out large sums of money to print copies of their books.  Having no inventory means no upfront expenses.
