Do you fancy yourself as the next Chuck Palahniuk or Stephen King? Or maybe you've been inspired by the exploits of E.L.James and her Fifty Shades Of Grey and want to get in on the action. Whether you are a new writer ready to pass on your words of wisdom or a long time scribe looking to spread your wings with the new technology, Foboko provides many of the services to help your dream come true. However, there is more to this e-book publishing application than just its ability to become a conduit to self-publishing your material as it also delivers a writing community to guide, advise and encourage you to produce your best work.
According to recent figures sales of e-books doubled between 2010 and 2011 and now account for about 30% of all book trade. It's clear that the future for authors is very definitely an online one. Foboko is an easy to use writing application that differs a little from the many other e-book services. For a start, is a rather unique entry into the world of self-publishing as authors have access to a community of fellow writers, published professionals and readers who are available to help you produce the best work you can. But possibly the main thing that sets it apart from others is the step-by-step planning process for your story or book. The 'social publishing’ side comes into effect via the web-based Foboko community which allows authors to seek help from fellow members while compiling their book through its ‘Wizard software’. At any time, you can post questions and open up your manuscript to your social community to receive feedback or assistance with content or the writing process. If you’re struggling with writer’s bock or continuity problems you can ask an expert or your social community. The 'wizard' is simple to use and allows authors to work on their projects as well as saving drafts along the way. Foboko has taken book writing from an arduous solo task and put it into a fun, social environment. Throughout the process it also provides useful tools to help when you need it. Once the process is complete the wizard combines the work into a cohesive ebook.
Foboko is a new site where you can easily write and publish books online and features in the official 'Best places where students can write online' list. While there have been a few great publishing apps like Pandamian released recently Foboko is value added by the social interaction with your peers and the step-by-step rundown of just what you need to do to self-publish your book or story online. The other thing, of course, is that this is not just a writing app. Foboko is also a fantastic library for the online reader with new authors presenting their original works. And that's what it's all about really isn't it? This ebook self publishing application with input from your social community is well worth looking at.
