There is a new app in town and to celebrate, I have a gift pack – full of relaxing goodies – for 1 lucky winner!

A 10-MINUTE ESCAPE IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND?

WE HAVE AN APP FOR THAT!

Let eChook take you away

The best of two worlds have merged to bring the overworked and under-rested 10-minutes of transcendent bliss. Award-winning short story writer Tessa Smith McGovern has wedded the restorative nature of getting lost in a story to the immediacy of modern technology to bring readers eChook. More than brain candy, eChook offers apps full of well-written short stories that soothe the soul like 10-minutes of literary gourmet chocolate.

There are several ways to enjoy eChook. Readers can buy full-color chapbooks from the app store in almost a dozen ways: on their iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, from www.eChook.com or iTunes, and coming soon on Kindle or Nook. Choices include collections of short stories linked by a single theme (such as Memoir) or collections of linked short stories that follow engaging characters through different adventures. Each app features information pages with enriched content such as “About the Author,” and “Memoir and Fiction.” eChook offers short stories that are light in your pocket and on your pocket book.

Until March 31, writers may submit pieces for “Short Stories, Vol. 1.” Stories of approximately 750 – 2,000 words that are selected for publication will receive up to $100 for rights; for more information, visit www.eChook.com.

“I believe that everybody has a short story in them,” McGovern says.
