BREAKING NEWS:

DATA DRIVEN PUBLISHER INKITT LAUNCHES IOS APP
Inkitt empowers readers and publishers to discover world’s next best sellers

BERLIN, NOVEMBER 16, 2016: Inkitt, the world’s first algorithm-based book publisher, is introducing an iOS app for iPhone and iPad available to readers globally today.

In less than 2 years from launch, Inkitt has attracted over 700,000 unique readers: the iOS app will give book lovers and publishers greater access to Inkitt’s digital library of over 80,000 stories by up-and-coming authors.

I was first introduced to Inkitt maybe two or three months earlier this year. An author had contacted me and asked me to check out her story on there. I made an account and although I haven’t used Inkitt as often as I like, I think that’s going to be quickly remedied with the app. I can now read on the go, which is important for someone like me who’s always on the go!

Some awesome features include:

  • Access to 80,000 stories in every genre: fantasy, sci-fi, romance, thriller, horror, adventure, action and more
  • Personalized suggestions: hand-picked novels based on reader’s preferences
  • App customization according to user preferences (e.g. font size, colors)
  • Online/Offline: readers can save novels to their offline library to access them without an internet connection

If you haven’t guessed already, I got to test this glorious app before release!

I tried out the available features and I must say I enjoyed it. The app is clean and works smoothly and quickly (as long as your wifi isn’t on its last leg), which is imperative when you’re reading a book that’s got you chewing on your nails. I loved the fact that I can change the font size and colors when I’m reading stories. It may seem like a small thing, but I really do enjoy not having to hold my phone up to my face and/or squinting while I’m reading, give your eyes a rest (they deserve it!). I really liked the online/offline feature because as I said before, I’m always traveling, so now I can read while I travel with or without wifi.

Beyond being a platform connecting authors and readers, Inkitt has developed an in-house algorithm that analyzes reading behavior to determine if a novel has the potential to become a bestseller. Using this unique data-driven approach, Inkitt aims to help emerging writers achieve their dreams of getting published by becoming a point of reference for publishers looking to uncover the world’s next best sellers.

Back in April, Inkitt announced the signing of the platform’s first algorithm-chosen novel, Bright Star, a Young Adult fantasy novel written by Texan author Erin Swan and signed for publication with Tor Books. Since July, Inkitt has published another 3 novels: Catalyst Moon: Incursion by Lauren L. Garcia (Fantasy), Just Juliet by Charlotte Reagan (YA Romance) and I Was A Bitch by Emily Ruben (YA Romance Mystery). Both Just Juliet and I Was A Bitch became best sellers in their respective categories upon launch.

Inkitt’s iOS app was released in beta in Australia and Canada earlier this year and is now available for download globally here!

Blog Tour + Giveaway | The Sailweaver’s Son by Jeff Minerd

The Sailweaver’s Son by  Jeff Minerd
Genre: MG/YA Fantasy

front-cover

Goodreads Synopsis:

The Sailweaver’s Son combines traditional fantasy with a dash of steampunk and takes young readers to a unique world—Etherium. A world where mountains rise like islands above a sea of clouds and adventurers travel the sky in sail-driven airships.

When fifteen year-old Tak rescues the survivor of an airship destroyed by one of the giant flammable gas bubbles mysteriously appearing in the sky of Etherium, the authorities react like a flock of startled grekks.

Admiral Scud accuses Tak of sabotage and treason. Tak’s father grounds him for reckless airmanship. Rumors spread that the bubbles are weapons devised by the Gublins, a race of loathsome but ingenious underground creatures. The King’s advisors call for war, hoping to win much-needed Gublin coal.

To clear his name, solve the mystery, and prevent a misguided war, Tak must do what anyone knows is suicide—visit the Gublins and find out what they’re up to. When the wizard’s adopted daughter, an oddly beautiful and irksomely intelligent girl from the Eastern kingdoms, asks Tak to help her do just that, he can’t say no.

The adventure will take Tak from the deepest underground caves to a desperate battle on Etherium’s highest mountaintop. It will force him to face his worst fears, and to grow up faster than he expected.
