launch an eBook? how?

Posted by Daniela Elza on Apr 13 2011

For those of you who have asked questions about how to purchase the book of it, here is an attempt at a more coherent answer. I realize one has to use the right technical words to avoid confusion. I am slowly learning the terminology around this technology.

the book of it is available now for the Kindle device, as well as for the free Kindle app for Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android, Blackberry, and Window Phone7. Basically, you can enjoy it even at this early phase on any one of these devices when you download the free Kindle app.

We are working on getting it up on ibooks as well.

For all of you book lovers who want a paper book to hold, I understand. I myself feel awkward not to be able to hold this baby. I am also discovering the side effects of having such a virtual birth. I promise I will look into a way to get something solid to hold soon. I thank you for your interest, and will keep you posted.

I would also like to thank Dorothee Lang for featuring the book on the Daily s-Press blog and Rob Taylor for commenting on the book on his blog.

Now, how does one launch an eBook? Advice is always welcome. For now, I will be reading from the book of it in various venues starting this week with:

    I think an ebook of poetry should be launched as a virus. poems in audio should be beamed to everyone’s bluetooth

    Awesome idea. Maybe the audio should follow soon.
    I had my first reading from the Book of It yesterday and it was so much fun. I was even surprised at how much fun it was to read from it. Yet, this lovely poetry crowd seems to not be so adventurous in the technology department. They keep saying I want the book. Do you have a book? Where can I get it?

    Now back to the virus. I might have to talk to a few people.
