Ebooks offer readers the ease of carrying literally thousands of books into one single device that is portable, light and accessible almost anywhere. This is the part on which we generally stress on but there is also another side of the ebook industry that has benefited recently from electronic books. This is the side of the writers, publishers and all else who are associated with actually creating a book. What was impossible just a year or two ago is now very much possible and is being done right at this moment. The magic lies in the modern tools that enable authors and publishers to work faster than ever thought likely.
Consider the Vook platform as an example, which enabled Alan Goldsher to write Linsanity: The Improbable Rise of Jeremy Lin in six days or less and was published in a day! It’s a huge hit and it is so mostly because it was possible to release the story of the incredible Asian-American basketball player while it was trending. This is the point we are discussing today, the usefulness of the latest ebook platforms which helps writers and publishers to create and release ebooks at astonishing speeds.
Other examples of ebooks that came out on recent trending topics before it fizzled out includes, Hawkeytown: The Chicago Blackhawks’ Unforgettable 2013 Season, The Battle of $9.99: How Apple, Amazon and the Big Six Publishers Changed the E-Book Business Overnight and To Have and Uphold: The Supreme Court and the Battle for Same-Sex Marriage. All of these books also took advantage of the fast creation techniques and trending topics offered by the electronic book industry to become hits on release.
While we recognize the advantages which platforms like Vook brings to us, it is also important to recognize that news and history are not the two same things. There should also be some scope for the author who takes the time required in order to get a more intimate look at events and how they turn out a little bit later. The internet has made publishing a lot easier and how that affects our culture in the long run remains to be seen.
