Over the weekend, over 1 million iPhones were sold and lines are still forming outside Apple stores to obtain the latest innovation from Apple. The software update allowed for the existing half million phones to add third party applications. Since Friday, over 10 million applications have been downloaded from the AppStore. 8% of the Applications are ebook related.
Scoff if you must, but the iPhone might be the next publishing frontier. With the help of JS Wolf and the iPhone Bookshelf developer, Zac Bedell, I have created an iPhone Bookshelf available for any iPhone/iTouch user who has purchased the Bookshelf app. The fiction on the Dear Author Bookshelf is free fiction from various authors.
I’d like to host the free fiction of any romance author along with extended excerpts of works for those who don’t have free fiction. If you have an iPhone or iTouch with the new 2.0 software and have purchased Bookshelf, clicking this link will add the Dear Author Bookshelf to your choices on the iPhone.
If you are interested in contributing fiction to the Dear Author bookshelf, email jane at dearauthor.com!
