Jane Friedman Calls PressBooks “Amazing”!

All around smart publishing woman Jane Friedman (who seems to run even more blogs than I do), has a round-up of “Groundbreaking E-Publishing Services” in her latest newsletter (if you’re an author, I highly recommend).

PressBooks gets a nice mention:

It’s an amazing and free tool, and if you’re already familiar with how WordPress works, then you’ll find it even more incredible.

She mentions us along with Vook and iBooks Author, which is nice company to be in.

Check out her newsletter here (and why not subscribe while you are at it?)
