I'm sure you heard about books on cell phones being the hottest thing on the publishing scene this past year in Japan. Well, Roger Lichfield, founder of eBookApp.com billed as: your one stop publication house for Mobiles & iPhone, is bringing it to an iPhone near you.
Roger emailed me about his company several weeks ago. I told him I'd look into it. When I first checked it, the links he'd sent didn't work so I marked my calendar to check again. After all, this is a new enterprise.
Today, I followed up and found everything working very nicely. So listen up. This might be an opportunity you want to pursue.
What They Offer
Roger's company offers Authors and Publishers the ability to publish their eBooks through their proprietary eReader application which converts existing eBooks into Apple iPhone Applications that can be downloaded from AppStore.
Why do this? The immediate reason is the possibility of exposing your book to a potential market of a million users. That's how many iPhone users there now are.
Of course, this is one of those: you have to spend money to make money programs though they do offer a free membership but with a reduced royalty.
However, judge for yourself whether this is something you want to dive into. Here are the links you need to research because you need to know all the details in order to make an informed decision.
Royalty Structure: http://ebookapp.com/pricing – basically, the royalty is broken down after the wholesale price or paid out of 70% of book list price.
Contract: http://ebookapp.com/contract – Authors/Publishers retain all the rights to their works, they can also modify the list6 price as well as cancel with us at anytime.
In the ever-changing world writers now inhabit, we need to explore every opportunity.
