Romance and Erotica e-books have been one of the bright spots of the digital publishing industry and many companies are looking for new distribution methods to get them in front of women. Simon & Schuster has just developed a new iPhone app that lets you subscribe to your favorite author and receive bite sized updates every 24 hours.
Crave is a new app for the iPhone that makes reading e-books more enjoyable for people who are too busy to breeze through a full length novel. Since only bite sized chunks are delivered on a daily basis, it is a great way to kill some time when you are waiting for transit to arrive, on your break or have a few minutes to spare during the day.
Not only does this app encourage women to read, but to also discover new authors. Every week a new author is added to the platform and this month there are e-books contributed by Colleen Hoover, Abbi Glines and K.A. Tucker.
To keep things interesting Crave provides bookish extras from the author, polls, quizzes, videos, photos, and more.
You can subscribe to an author’s channel for unlimited access to their stories and other premium content. The subscriptions are $3.99 monthly and the first month is free.
