Self-Publishing Platform for Interactive Books

Trying to create interactive stories for digital readers?

The new Accel.io self-publishing platform was built to help create and sell interactive books with text, embed videos, slides, maps and more for any kind of reading device. AppNewser has all the details:

Publishers and authors using the tool can set the price of their titles and even create their own marketplace within Accel.io’s platform. Within your store, you have the option to create ala carte pricing or subscription-based pricing in which readers pay a monthly price for access to all of the guides in the store. The platform already includes eighty stores, and authors can cross promote within these stores. The tool is great for authors looking to build up a mailing list, as it supplies the author with detailed information about their readers including contact information.

If you want to see what is possible on the new platform, browse this collection of nonfiction guides created with the tool.
