Innovations helping new authors create, sell and promote their books

Luckily, a wave of innovations helping new and existing authors publish and promote their books are coming to fore. These innovations, which include everything from disappearing ink to encourage quick reading to fansourced book tours, consequently augment the conventional publishing process so that burgeoning new authors actually have a fighting chance despite the growing popularity of ebooks and digital content.
