Try the e-book experience at Dorchester

Several IWOFA authors are published by Dorchester Publishing. Let me think... Deborah Macgillivray is (amongst others), Helen Scott is. I am.

This last week, we all received emails from Erin Galloway, the Dorchester PR boss, informing us that we now have widgets, which will allow readers the e-reading experience. Yes, the pages turn.

These widgets don't give away the entire book, but they do allow readers a very decent sneak peek. Up to 10% of the book. Now, having said that, anyone can choose any keyword they please. I chose "and" because there is an urban myth that words like "and" and "if" will fake out a system and let a reader read the entire book.

Doesn't work. I haven't tried requesting indecent words, but then again, my royal aliens don't use a lot of those... unless they are villains, who deliberately want to shock and offend.

Check it out. Let me know what you think of the technology.

If you click on one of the other links, I expect it will take you back to http://www.dorchesterpub.com where you can try out other widgets.
Best wishes,
Rowena Cherry
