Apple's iBookstore Now Highlights Self-Published Ebooks

Apple has added a new section of the iBookstore called "Breakout Books" that highlights up and coming self-published books from "emerging talents".

Titles are grouped into genres, like sci-fi, mysteries and thrillers, and romance, just like the books section of your local supermarket. Here's a synopsis of one such title, Bridesmaid Lotto by Rachel Astor:

Self-publishing can be a great opportunity for unknown, legitimately gifted writers. For example, Wool was self-published. And it's no high-brow piece of literature, but 50 Shades of Grey was also a DIY project.

Breakout Books is a lot of mummy porn and bargain basement fantasy, but perhaps there are some diamonds in the rough. And also lots of mummy porn.
