Website Magazine covered SharedBook, a
reverse publishing platform provider, in the "Seven
Sizzlin' Site Tools" article of the May issue. What was most appealing to me
as the one that penned the piece was that SharedBook was announcing an open API.
By all accounts, it looks as though there is some interesting development
through that resource now, with the release of
Blog2Print enables blog owners to compile their favorite posts into a printed
book format with a single click and provides the ability to monetize content
through the sale of blog books created by their readers. Content owners can sign
up to receive a 20 percent share of the retail price of all books made by others
of their content. Plus, the first 100 bloggers to add the Blog2Print widget to
their Google Blogger sites will be entitled to
a complimentary 20-page hard cover book, valued at $24.95. The offer is good
through Monday, July 31, 2007.
