Electric Literature Introduces New App Pub Tools

Digital publishing community Electric Literature has a new service for making eBook apps on the cheap called Electric Publisher. Author Stephen Elliott created an eBook app for his novel The Adderall Diaries using the Electric Publisher platform.

Earlier this summer, Electric Literature told eBookNewser that they built their own iPad apps and how they wanted to be able to license the tool to other publishers. And now they are.

The tool includes the ability to create dynamic text, multimedia content and the ability to distribute through the app store. One cool feature that Elliott included from the platform is a discussion section, where anyone reading the book app can share their thoughts and the author can participate in the conversation.

The New York Times has more: “The pricing starts at $600 for a single book app, with additional charges for creating an app-based bookshelf that contains more than one book for sale.”
