For those of you out there who thought it was too difficult or expensive to publish your writing, Barnes&Noble has now released PubIt
, an electronic upload service that allows easier entry into the ebook market for self-published authors and independent publishing companies (a boon for almost any Jewish publisher or author). Barnes&Noble says that 35 of their 200 top best-sellers in on the Nook were published through this new service.
