Nook Press was unveiled a few weeks ago and is the direct followup to their PUBIT, self-publishing program. When Nook Press was released the platform saw a backlash of authors lamenting they could not edit, or make changes to their eBooks once they were published and available for sale. Nook Press has heard your pleas apparently because they just upgraded the platform to allow authors to make adjustments or changes to their published books.
In a statement today, Barnes and Noble said “We’ve recently made some updates to the platform to make self-publishing even easier. Now with NOOK Press, you can edit your Manuscripts that are already on sale as NOOK Books – without creating a new Project or removing it from sale.”
This is tremendous news for anyone that has to correct a few spelling mistakes or even add new content. Nook Press is available for free and is a very solid platform, with a few features not found anywhere else. My favorite is the Integrated Collaboration, which allows authors to collaborate with editors, copy-editors, and friends, allowing them to review and comment on your manuscript without ever leaving NOOK Press.
To get started with NOOK Press today, simply create a NOOK Press account and follow the instructions to sync your PubIt! account. B&N has also created two new video tutorials that walk you through the account set-up process and the new editorial content tools.
