Barnes Noble relabels PubIt! as Nook Press, adds web-based publishing tool

Barnes & Noble’s PubIt! self-publishing conduit has been active for well over two years, but you’d be forgiven for overlooking it with that somewhat forgettable (if very emphatic) name. The company might just know what you’re thinking, as it’s giving the service a considerably more memorable title, Nook Press, while upgrading features at the same time. Although the royalty structure remains the same, Nook Press now incorporates a web-based authoring tool: would-be Hemingways can write and preview their work through one online hub, sharing their drafts with others in a secure space. Those who commit should also get more exposure through an upcoming Nook Press channel on Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets. There’s no guarantee that the rebranding will lure potential bestselling authors away from Amazon, but they may have a better sense of their options.
