Among my many mentors in the publishing industry I am lucky to count Karen Robertson as a friend. Karen is a successful children’s book app author, speaker and coach who has established a strong following as a guru to the book app publishing industry. She has published several ebooks on the subject, each of which helped me along the way.
Karen just released her latest book titled ‘What is a Book App and Could YOU Create One? How 27 Writers Did!‘. It is very worthwhile, and not just because I am in it…
Among other valuable advice, Karen interviews 27 successful book app authors and publishes their stories, tips and struggles in a compilation that is a must-have for any author considering going digital. The experience in the personal stories of published authors is worth a lifetime of working it out on your own.
In her book, Karen Robertson, explains what a book app is, why it’s such an exciting publishing option, what you need to know about this opportunity, and how it’s done. It is a tremendous resource and will help you decide if it’s right for you to publish your children’s book as an app.
From the writers’ stories, you’ll see that there are a lot of ways to make a book app happen in a way that will meet your objectives and budget, even if you aren’t technically inclined.
Her eBook is available exclusively on Kindle for just a few bucks. If you don’t have a Kindle reader, fear not: I use the free Kindle app that lets you read books from the Amazon Kindle store on your Android devices, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
