Novelist  and blogger Caroline Leavitt reported yesterday on her CarolineLeavittville blog about a new venture launching today (Dec. 20) called Shebooks, whose mission is to publish short-form, inexpensive e-books by women. They will emphasize pieces such as stories and memoirs that can be read in one or two sittings, in recognition of the fact that many busy readers just don’t have much time to read. To learn more about this project, click on the link for Leavitt’s interview with Shebooks co-founder and Editorial Director, Laura Fraser.
