Not much time to talk today, so I’ll just say that PubIt has gone live. This is the Barnes & Noble tool for self epublication that will put works into the Nook store (both directly for the Nook and for any device that has a Nook app). PubIt will run off the ePub format, so this is as much a distribution source as anything else, though it does have a tool for turning your Word documents, or other word processor files, into ePub.
I haven’t had a chance to play with it, but you can bet I eventually will. One thing I am noticing from just poking around the FAQ: PubIt is not requiring ISBNs to sell on the site.
DL Thurston’s blog at http://DLThurston.com/blog is currently broken and never got updated anyway. Instead, watch him try to make sense of the War of 1812 at http://200years.dlthurston.com. Rust is available now for Kindle, ePub readers, and iBooks, coming soon to Sony Reader. And probably the Nook in the near future as well.
