Enhanced Interactive e-Books for Self-Published Authors
Democrasoft Offers Direct Author Access to WeJIT Capabilities
SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2012
SANTA ROSA, Calif., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Democrasoft, Inc. (OTC:
PinkSheets: DEMO) today announced that Democrasoft's WeJIT™ technology is now
available directly to authors who are self-publishing their e-books. WeJITs,
created by an author and embedded in an e-book, allows an e-book reader to
communicate directly with the author, with other readers from within the
e-book, and with new individuals outside the book, who can participate in
book-based discussions, expanding a book's readership and reach.
This new service for authors comes in the wake of the recent
joint-announcement by Democrasoft, VOOK, and Waterside Productions, of the
world's first two-way interactive e-book, made possible by WeJIT technology.
The top selling book 11 Days in May, by JD Messinger and published by
Waterfront Digital Press, included 32 embedded WeJIT discussions, enabling the
author and readers to interact with each other from inside the e-book. That
announcement quickly led to requests from other authors around the country to
have the same WeJIT capabilities in their own e-books. Today's announcement is
part of Democrasoft's response to those requests.
The WeJITs for Authors program (http://www.mywejit.com/wordpress/authors)
makes it possible for self-published authors to embed WeJITs into their
e-books with just a few clicks. In many cases, published authors will be
introduced to this WeJIT capability by their own publishers, working through
Waterside Productions, who represents Democrasoft throughout the publishing
world on a non-exclusive basis
However, the newly announced Democrasoft site is specifically for authors who
are self-publishing their e-books without the help of 3rd party publishers.
According to Democrasoft Chairman & CEO Richard Lang "Offering WeJIT
capability directly to self-published authors not yet affiliated with a
publisher, will expand the availability of multi-way interactive
author-reader-reader experiences inside of e-books. It will enable authors to
have a reach and reader engagement that is far greater than what the
traditional e-book experience currently affords."
The WeJITs for Authors program is designed to increase both new hardcover and
e-book sales, due to the WeJIT's interactive nature and the readers' ability
to share individual book-based discussions outside of the current e-book
community. Readers can forward the URL for any embedded WeJIT discussion to
anyone, even those who don't yet have the book and may have never heard of it.
New WeJIT participants then have the opportunity to purchase the book and
other offerings, directly from the author(s).
"Self-published authors are looking for new ways to promote their e-books in a
hyper-competitive market place. With the WeJIT, self-promotion can be done by
the very people that are the most involved with a book, the readers
themselves," said Lang.
