E-publishing embraces a variety of non-printed solutions to getting your work published. As a publishing option, it is growing and gaining greater acceptance every day. There are a number of reasons for this: for the most part it is either free or highly affordable and also, open to everyone. For many, it represents the future of publishing.
First-time authors and independent publishers with limited resources can and do use e-publishing as a platform to getting their work published. Initially, it might just present an affordable means to build an audience for your work, gain recognition as a writer, establish a reputation and so on. In time, it can be used to generate a reasonable and steady income from just a small financial outlay, without the associated risks of tying up money in stock, inventory, overheads. This really is one of the biggest attractions of the e-book as a publishing solution.
