'A historic new chapter in book publishing opens.'

ll Could be what we're all looking for:

myebook.com: 'A historic new chapter in book publishing opens.'
myebook.com (beta), a newly launched, web-based, ebook community site gives everyone the tools to create book content and get it out there for free.
Every aspect of publishing your content is covered, from creating, to sharing, to reading, in by far the slickest and simplest way seen so far.
Simon Whitehall, head of myebook communications, commented: "Forget web 2.0, we've just turned the page to chapter 3.0. With myebook.com, we've made it possible for anyone to upload, or create from scratch, beautifully simple or adventurously complex page designs and covers online, in no time. What's more, you can publish your book with a single button and release it to the world before the (virtual) ink's dry! You can create as many publications as you want. And it's all free."
Readers may well feel it all sounds a bit too good to be true. So where's small print?
"There isn't any. The only limitation is your imagination. An over-used cliché but never more appropriate than here. Create, publish and share. We simply want you to 'get it out there." he exclaimed, reiterating the strap line given to the project.
"Our audience is everyone from the kid at school who's just wrote a nice short story in English class, to his sister who wants to document a recent family trip, to the author who wants to share the novel he's just finished, to his friend who wants to share the novel he's just sat on for 20 years!
"My grandmother, for example, who tells me she's led a rather 'colorful life' has always promised (or threatened) she'll write a book on it all some day. "But who'll publish that?" she would ask. Well, we would. To all her friends!"
The team behind it all feels that the service has undoubtedly stolen a march on the rest of the publishing industry. Whilst judging a book by it's cover is never advised, spending a few minutes at the site will convince even the most hardened bookworm.
"Like the digital music revolution, myebook aims to give back total control to the content creator and the reader. It provides a way to publish what they want and connect with their audience directly. It's incredible."
He added. "We're years ahead of the market for sure. You simply can't draw-up such a rich, yet simple set of services like this and get it out in a week. It takes years. Reading between the lines, we think we've got it right."
And before the traditionalists take to the altar, fear not. The company is not trumpeting the death of print. No, the company is quick to point out that whilst print itself is great, it's the advantages of the traditional publishing and distribution model that are fading fast. Currently the myebook team is exploring options for letting users order hard copy editions of its content.

This looks like a very exciting idea for eBook authors who want to "share" their eBooks with the general public. The key word here appears to be "share".

I wonder how many Activ E-Book authors are interested in "sharing" their work for free. I suspect that most Activ users are more interested in turning their hot literary efforts into cold hard cash.
