Why App Publishing is Right For Your Children’s Book

You wrote a children’s book? We have an app for that.

The percentage of children who have read an e-book has almost doubled since 2010, to 46 percent. Times are changing and thanks to e-readers, the book publishing industry is too. E-books are able to be read on your computer, e-reader, smartphone or tablet, making them accessible and portable. Several of these gadgets have e-book apps that make e-books even more appealing to younger readers. In order to keep your book from falling behind the latest trends in book publishing, you must adapt your book marketing strategy to fit into these rapidly-growing markets.

What better way to keep up with the rise in e-books and e-readers than by turning your children’s book into an interactive app? WestBow Press wants to help Christian authors expand their reach through App Publishing services. With ReadPlay App you can turn your children’s book into an interactive app that is made specifically for children’s books and available on the latest Microsoft tablets with the Windows 8 operating system.
