What is a Book App and Could YOU Create One? How 27 Writers Did!


What is a Book App and Could YOU Create One? How 27 Writers Did! by Karen Guinn Robertson
Reviewed by Vicki Stanton

At last I understand what book apps are, what they do and when book apps might be the way to publish. Karen Robertson could not have explained the process any more simply but arms readers with the necessary knowledge to determine whether this publishing avenue is for them and, if so, how to go about it. 

The step-by-step system (D-R-E-A-M) is easy to follow, even for the non-techies among us (like me!). Information on how to develop your project and where to find the most suitable book developer is included. There are leads to plenty of free resources and the author interviews are an invaluable insight into the pros and cons of publishing in this format.

Karen writes from experience, having first published her own picture books in print before venturing into the very new world of digital publishing. Her expertise has led her to help others realise their projects in ways that could have been barely imagined a decade ago. She reveals her journey and those of twenty-plus other writers who have utilised this new technology for many different reasons and in many different ways.  Importantly, their insights will hopefully help others sidestep some of the pitfalls.

At $2.99, this book is a steal for those even thinking about book apps.

(You don't have to have a Kindle reader to read this book. There is a free Kindle app that lets you read books from the Amazon Kindle store on your Android devices, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. It's super easy and the app is free. Learn more about it here:
