Whats-a-Book-App-27-Writers-Cover-with-TBB-logo-FinalMy friend Karen Robertson, who has more than earned the name “Digital Kids Author,” recently published another book on creating book apps: What is a Book App (and Could You Create One)?

This time, after a fantastic introduction to book apps and considerations for creating them, she shares stories from 27 authors and illustrators (myself included!) on how they created their own apps.

If you have ever even had the twinkling of an idea that you might like to create and publish a book app, What is a Book App? should be required reading. Here you have the opportunity to learn from 27 authors who have gone before you — share in their successes and learn from their mistakes.

The book is divided into sections based on how the authors’ apps were created.

  1. Writers Who Worked with Book App Specialists/Developers (e-Publishers fall into this category, which is also the section where A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS is featured)
  2. Book Apps Created Using a Do-It-Yourself Book App Service
  3. Book Apps Created Using a Developer Studio
  4. Book Apps Created by an Individual Developer or Small Team

So in addition to reading 27 inspiring stories, you’ll also learn about the myriad options available for publishing book apps.

This book is available exclusively on Amazon Kindle but you don’t have to have a Kindle device to read it! You can get the free Kindle app that lets you read books from the Kindle store on your Apple or Android devices!

I am honored to be among the many talented authors who contributed to this book. Many thanks to Karen for putting it all together!
