eChook Turns Apps Into Chapbooks

Author Tessa Smith McGovern has launched a new series of eReader apps for short story reading called eChook.

Based on the 16th century notion of the chapbook –a small single chapter book—the apps include digital short stories based on a specific theme that can be read in 10 minutes. McGovern had this statement: “Life-affirming, thoughtful stories can help us relax so we can attend that next meeting, collect the kids or greet our families with more energy and joy.”

One such app is called London Road: Linked Stories and includes a number of short stories about London. It costs $3.99 in the App Store.

Authors are invited to submit short stories for consideration until December 1st. Stories must be uplifting memoirs, 750-2000 words, and should be able to read in 10 minutes. For more information on how to submit, follow this link.
