Fast Pencil even has a service team to help authors with publishing their e-books. Authors have three options to choose from 1. The free private for anyone who wish to write, edit, and publish a book. 2. $149 option for an e-book or print book and 3. $199 option for both e-book and print book. Fast Pencil makes it easy to connect, write, publish, and sell your book(s). So, all you writers who want to become a publish author here is your chance.

Actually I think Lulu is still the leader of the pack when it comes to self-publishing. It allows writers to publish a book or an e-book free of charge. It institutes a Publish on Demand scheme and the author receives royalties on every sale. If I'm not mistaken it's 80% for the author and 20% for Lulu.

Yes, there are a lot of complaints about Lulu being a scam. They stop paying their author's royalties and when you delete your titles from their storefront your titles are save by Lulu for sales later by them. Only time will tell if Fast Pencil become a scam site.

If you use the free option do you still get royalties for your writing? I am just curious. That sounds like a cool site to be honest. If I could get better at writing I might use it to publish an ebook and get a little money off of it.

It is for anyone who wants to write, edit and publish a book. The Free Private option is for those of you who want to publish and share books, but do not want to sell them through Amazon, Kindle or iPad. You can also use this option to try out FastPencil, or get a proof copy of your book.
