Intro to Ubooks

Being Indie is all about innovation. That’s how we’ve turned this publishing world upside down. The Big Five don’t know what to do with us. We’re not rule followers. We make them up for ourselves. Which leads me to *Ubooks.

Basically, *Ubooks are books on video, where the words appear on the screen/device at reading pace. Most are enhanced with music. Some are narrated. It’s really a very simple idea, one that has far-reaching implications, because if books are on video, they can be any length and still be marketable. Think about it. Gone are the days when that amazing piece of flash sits in a file, waiting for ten more like it so it can be made into a collection and sold on Amazon for ninety-nine cents—which they get seventy percent of. With *Ubooks, it can be different, because *Ubooks are different. Because they’re free—gotta love Youtube—they’re the perfect medium for those shorter pieces. Can you see the possibilities? And because Ubooks are a seamless reading experience with musical enhancements, they’re not only free, and on a medium people are familiar with (Youtube), they’re a better product.
