[Toni and I had the pleasure of meeting each other at Wordstock in Portland, OR. She rocks! We were booth neighbors and we got to chatting about APPS. I'm thrilled that Toni is here today to demystify the world of APPS for us regular folks. So, grab a cup of tea and read about one story's journey from the printed page to APP-land!]
So you are thinking about publishing an eBook? Maybe you have a book in ink and paper already published and want to get in on all this App action. Or maybe you haven’t been published yet, feel empowered by the self-publishing option and think the App rage looks like easy money. Where do you start? How easy or hard is it?
A few years ago my friend, artist and author Carol Bolt, called me up and asked if we at salty snack studios could and would make an app. As a happy coincidence, my partner, Bruce Tribbensee, and I make movies and had just started making iPhone apps. Carol’s books were already on our list of apps we wanted to make. And Carol was on our list of people with whom we wanted to work.
