Authors can publish their guides immediately on www.GuideGecko.com
 
 GuideGecko (www.GuideGecko.com), a new website for travel, lifestyle and entertainment guides, provides the perfect platform for self-published accessible travel guides by independent authors.
 

GuideGecko.gif People with disabilities and disability organisations who create access guides to their cities, regions and countries, are often unable to publish the guides due to lack of resources.
 
 GuideGecko solves that problem by allowing free publishing of travel guides in PDF format, online publicity, and a print & shipping service for customers who purchase the guide. Authors set their own price and earn
 50-75% on every sale. Guides can be updated at any time, ensuring the customer always has the latest version.
 
 A whole range of other travel guides by both independent and well-known
 publishers are on offer on the site, increasing the chances that your guide
 will be spotted and bought.
 
 This is a huge opportunity for people with disabilities who wish to publish
 access guides to their cities and regions. The more accessible travel guides
 are put online at GuideGecko, the better the resource will become for
 travelers with disabilities - and the more people with disabilities could
 find information to help them travel.
 
 See www.guidegecko/publish.com for information on how to publish quickly,
 easily and for free.
