OneBookShelf, the company that operates a number of geeky digital marketplaces, yesterday announced the launch of DriveThru Fiction.
The new marketplace joins DriveThruComics, RPGNOw and DruveThruRPG as a supplier of electronic goodies for gamers. RPGNow and DriveThruRPG have been a strong channel for new RPG publishers to come to market. It is expected DriveThruFiction will tap into the huge number of authors with content and the skills to promote their own creations as well as catering to publication houses.
The site already has content from Cubicle 7 Entertainment, who recently announced their new imprint, Nevermet Press, Bards and Sages as well as White Wolf.
In a press release, the company said;
DriveThruFiction.com is a genre-focused website that will offer e-books, audio, visual, and print editions of short stories, novellas, novels, and more. Readers can subscribe to their favorite authors and publishers in science fiction, horror, fantasy, and several popular sub-genres including steampunk and paranormal romance.
Independent and traditional publishers can take advantage of on-site marketing tools when they sign up for an account. These tools are unique to the DriveThru family of sites and are offered at no charge.
