Since the advent of the Internet, people have practically created a separate virtual world where everything real is converted into electronic signals that allow anyone with a computer to go anywhere and see anything through the four corners of the monitor. With this network of interconnected computers, there is instant access to virtually anything from food and clothes to parties and travel destinations.

Social networks have rendered snail mail and even meeting in public obsolete. Online markets have eliminated the need to take a drive to local stores. For entertainment, downloadable movies and music are readily available. And as far as hobbies go, there are a number of platforms that have created the world of virtual sports, digital photography, travel sites, online writing, and electronic books.

Writers and contemporary authors can use this technology to their advantage as well. Electronic magazines, virtual blogs, and online book publishing have revolutionized the conventional definition of "published work”, allowing practically anyone with skill in writing to bring out and sell books online, and anyone with an eye for literature to buy and read them, all this without the use of costly, tree-wrecking paper.

There are a number of websites that offer online publishing free of charge. Others require a minimum fee to cover service costs. Nevertheless, it still holds true that online book publishing is a less expensive, more accessible, and most of the time, more reasonable alternative to getting a book in print. A lot of companies that promote the use and sale of electronic books, "ebooks”, as they are more widely known, give authors the option either to sell their material in electronic form, in printed form, or both.

Virtual buyers who add these books to their "carts”, can then choose from among the available options selected by the author himself. When an electronic version is preferred, the book will have to be downloaded or stored in a compact disc - whichever method is available - upon completion of payment. If, however, the customer prefers a printed version, a printout of the book can also be supplied.

One major setback of publishing books online is that most of these marketing companies require from the author a percentage of the income generated from the sale of his book. Still some sites charge authors just for putting up their books for sale -- advertising fees. Broadcasting a manuscript through electronic media is not completely free of charge. It is still an investment. However, it is one that entails considerably lower risks compared to larger funding and a longer process that comes with traditional publication methods.

Online book publishing is an easy, affordable, and effective way for beginning writers, persistent novelists, and aspiring bestsellers to have their work appreciated by hungry readers all over the world, or it can also be a simple income-generating stepping-stone for mass production of a still unpopular masterpiece. Whatever it may be, it still remains one of the few secure portals to success in writing (and one of the many great ways to save the trees).
