 JO-ANNE: Hi Anne; I knew you could throw the questions forth that ‘others’ would be asking. A HUGE thank you for your input. It’s important I cover ‘all the bases’…as you know.

ANNE: Jo, this sounds really cool. Thanks for sharing this idea–and congratulations on getting your own publications up online with this!

JO-ANNE: Almost two years ago, I came up with the idea of APPY OUR PUBLISHING. Gosh, back then, folks didn’t know what an app was…and many were just purchasing their first cell phone.

 At that time, it was difficult for me to find any information about apps…and so I started to educate the public by writing articles about the marketing future (apps) for authors and the importance of climbing on board by having ‘your own app’.

But…because no one seemed ready…

Time to re-open Appy Our Publishing.

Perfect!

Today, Nathan Chambers has jumped on board and is THRILLED!…and what a BLESSING!

ANNE: How does it work? And how does it compare to working with Smashwords? Or the iBookstore? Or a publisher?

JO-ANNE: Simply, the apps we design and publish are like a central hub available to be downloaded from the Google Play App Store. Inside the app, the client can have whatever he/she wishes to highlight. It’s like a business card, except with even more information AND world-wide distribution…MAJOR EXPOSURE!

Here’s the Author App – Business eCard we created for you…viewers can download this app for FREE…brings MASSIVE exposure to YOU!

Many choose to have icons and direct links to their website, distribution site, an about section, a collection of their most common social media sites, and a connection icon. We have also done organization apps that include donation icons, and a GPS for those needing direction to physical site. So so cool!

Google Play Book Store

A Book App is published in Google Play Book Store and is for sale. The reader can purchase the Book App and read their eBook from their device. Here’s the latest Google Play button:

To publish a book into Google Play Book Store in the devices listed above, the author must send us an ePub of their book and the largest image of their cover.

If the author does not have their book formatted for cross-platform devices (epub) and has a text or doc file, their book will still be for sale on Google Play but only on specific devices: The Web, Tablet/iPad and Scanned Pages; and will exclude smartphones, eReaders and Flowing Text.

The apps, created from Appy Our Publishing, are designed for QUICK VIEWING and SIMPLE NAVIGATION. You don’t want to have viewers (potential purchasers) having to click too many times OR having to spend too much time searching OR have your images all skewed and having them scroll sideways for them to read the information.

The apps, at Appy Our Publishing, are VISUALLY APPEALING, in whatever screen dimensions the viewer is looking from. Like a purse or wallet, an app presents EVERYTHING about the author all in one place. CONVENIENT.

Everything from a tiny cell phone to a big screen television set, the app (all the information included) is clear and with no sideways scrolling (which is a pain in the toosh when you are attempting to read a site that is NOT compatible with the cell phone).

ANNE: Is it solely PDF? Or all formats?

JO-ANNE: If the author does not have their book formatted for cross-platform devices (ePub) and has a text or doc file, their book will still be for sale on Google Play but only on specific devices: The Web, Tablet/iPad and Scanned Pages; and will exclude smartphones, eReaders and Flowing Text.

ANNE: Also, is the product that results an app or an e-book? (Just trying to get a handle on the process and the item or items that would result.).

JO-ANNE:

  • The Author App is loaded into Google Play App Store and listed as free. This app contains all the author’s information…like a business card.

  • The Book App is loaded into Google Play Book Store AND listed in Google. Their eBook is for sale in Google Play Book Store AND listed in Google Books.

  • So the reader either installs, the free Author App (to follow the author) and/or purchases the Book App, into their device. The reader’s device automatically converts it to their screen dimensions. ALSO, as the author makes site changes (from their computer) or updates their social media (ie: Facebook), the app automatically updates. Too cool!
  • TODAY, an app developed and published from Appy Our Publishing allows the reader to take their favorite authors with them…AND ALSO, purchase and read their books from their device.

ANNE: Seems to me this would be a great help for many writers who don’t have a lot of technical background.

JO-ANNE: Yes, that’s what I thought. Heck, even with all my technical background…this has been my biggest challenge yet. Designing a website seems like morsels compared to this big feast…lol.

ANNE: Sounds like you’ve been busy! (As usual.) Me, too. 🙂 XO…

JO-ANNE: Thanks again, Anne! >Hugs< Jo
