With the way technology blazes lately, it seems there’s something new to learn or acquire almost daily. iPhone 5, anyone? If I used a cell phone, I’d so be on that one. Alas, if I exceed two minutes call time a month, it is something to dial home about.
But what about apps? What do you, as a reader, think about author apps? I’ve just debuted an app for my Beautiful Creatures world. In the app you’ll find a complete list of my books, buy links, excerpts, videos, photos, and I can live tweet news and will be featuring cover reveals on the app before anyone else can see them. It’s kind of fun, and I had a great time putting it together. Readers are reading on electronic devices all the time, so an app seemed the next new thing to try. But what do you think? Would an app featuring all the above appeal to you, or can you get your information from the computer at home? (Oh, by the way, it’s free, and Android users can get it at googleplay.com. It’ll be available for Apple users soon.)
I should also mention I’ve two new releases out this month (sort of new, anyway). ROGUE ANGEL: THE MATADOR’S CROWN is my fourth entry into the Rogue Angel action-adventure fantasy series written under the Alex Archer pseudonym. This story is set in Cadiz and features bull fighters, flamenco dancers, and guys with guns (gotta have guys with guns).
Also this month, I’m thrilled to announce that I finally got back the rights to my first book, DARK RAPTURE, which was originally pubbed in 1997. A vampire romance written before Twilight. Go figure! ;-) Anyway, I’m calling this the remastered edition because I went through and did some light editing, slapped on a gorgeous new cover, and voila!
Do weigh in on the apps question, pretty please?
