A couple of weeks ago, I learned that Apple's iBooks had decided to make me their Breakout Author this week!
Like most authors, I want the broadest possible distribution of my books - because if readers can't find you, they can't read you! I prefer to establish individual relationships with distributors and upload content directly, so it's been a gradual process. I added iBooks to the lineup a little over six months ago and have been thrilled with the results.
With apps already included on Apple products, they're prebuilt to bring new readers to the digital reading experience. If you can buy a song from iTunes, you can buy a book. Book purchases are charged to the same account used to purchase music - or you can use iTunes gift cards to buy books and music interchangeably. Pretty cool, huh?
