Transition Nevertheless, another reason behind the improved chances is the option of self-publishing e-books.

In addition, some epublishers like Goodstory. com are attempting to get agents and movie producers to view books featured on their sites (Rose, M. J. , 2000, April 22). Apart from that, i. Publish. com’s Claire Zion believes e-books allow writers to reach specific audiences through the Internet (Rose, M. J. , 2000, May 24).
