Never hesitant to try something that will bring about a boom in their business, Amazon.com is offering customers access to two new programs: previewing publishers galleys and the opportunity to publish their own works.
Publishers Weekly reports (but I wasn't able to find anything on the Amazon.com site): Through Project Vine, readers with a history of posting accurate and helpful book reviews are being invited to receive advance copies for review purposes. And, through CreateSpace, a division of the company that already provides CD- and DVD-on-demand services, Amazon has added book publishing options.
