Here's Jason Clark on his start-up.
ModoComm Publishing is calling for manuscript submissions for inclusion in
an anthology of regional literature focusing on the Washington, DC area.
Works that capture the personality of DC should be submitted; fiction,
non-fiction and poetry works are all acceptable. Guidelines and information
can be found at http://publishing.modocomm.com/page/anthology/. ModoComm
hopes to give exposure to authors and topics that might normally escape the
attention of larger, corporate publishing houses.

for mobile devices, distributing author works in .epub and .pdf file formats
for use on devices like the Amazon Kindle or iPad, iPhone, etc. ModoComm
