Self-Publishing Just Got More Interesting

[Edited to add, thanks to archangelbeth: that there's also Smashwords, which will do all this for *free*. YAY for free! And peer at the comments for details!]

Perhaps in a fit of trying to make money off of the wave of those realizing they can now self-publish, Borders is offering a $39.99 package to self-publish an ebook with retail links to Amazon, Borders, Apple IBooks, and Barnes and Noble. Royalties go the other way around, i.e. the retailers take anything from 30-45% of the sale price for themselves.

Cover art is extra. *laughs* And you get to find your own editor and do all the promotion yourself, but that's... well... expected with self-published books.
