We’re excited to announce the third AuthorApp, this time for romance writer Marie Force. Download it for free iPad and iPhone in iTunes, or from the App Store.
Marie Force is the bestselling, award-winning author of the McCarthys of Gansett Island Series: MAID FOR LOVE, FOOL FOR LOVE and READY FOR LOVE as well as TRUE NORTH, THE FALL and THE WRECK. Find her at www.mariesullivanforce.com, on her blog at http://mariesullivanforce.blogspot.com.
We’re excited to announce that the first two AuthorApps are now available in the iPad and iPhone App Store!
Fans of teen romance writer Lucy Kevin and “sexy vampire” novelist Tina Folsom — whose eBooks have been tearing up the retail charts — can now get samples of all of their books in apps that employ the unique look and feel of the author’s books. Branded apps are a great free gift to fans who want a more direct connection with the author.
In their apps you can flip through the pages by swiping your finger or tapping the left and right sides of the screen, add bookmarks, navigate through the Table of Contents — and do all the things you’re used to in other eReading apps. The full version of each book is available at any time by tapping a “BUY” button, then paying through your iTunes account. See examples in the screen shots below, or download the free apps and try them out. Just search for “Lucy Kevin” or “Tina Folsom” from your iPhone or iPad App Store.
We’re still in pilot phase but are looking for more authors to join the program. To qualify you need to be an author or publisher with rights to many books in a series, a history of strong sales and a hunger for experimentation. Fill out this form to tell us more about your books and to join our e-mail newsletter.
Inside pages feature paper color chosen by the author and a prominent BUY button that uses Apple's in-app purchasing system to deliver the full version to the reader.
