That’s the beauty of an iTunes flash sale – 333 new readers in more than 12 countries including USA, China, Germany, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Russia, Portugal, Singapore, Lithuania, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan.
Even writers who feel nostalgic for their old typewriter know that new systems of execution and delivery (i.e. new media) are here to stay. This is one of those complicated, game-changing times in history and, naturally enough, contradictory emotions rule – a bit like having your child go off to college. You’re delighted they made it, thrilled by their achievements and possibilities, but so saddened by the gap in your life when they’re gone.
However, one of our goals at eChook is to guide writers through this brave new world and help them get writing, get published, build a platform and get paid. And have some fun along the way! To that end, we offer three different ways of learning and getting ahead:
Literary Delights, our free newsletter which includes a classic story and illuminates a point of craft as employed by that author (one that’s still relevant in today’s new media world).
Via our blog, we offer insight designed to show how you how today’s authors succeeded, useful tips on the art and craft of writing, as well as news.
And finally, in Story Studio, we offer exclusive content that allows you to follow along with Tessa Smith McGovern’s class at Sarah Lawrence College (Writing for Digital Media), prompts to get you writing, and information about how writers can benefit from the new world of web-connected TVs.
Sign-ups for all three are on the home page.
See you there!
