Author Blazes New Path for Book Publishing with ‘Captive’

Over the past six months, we’ve worked with an ever-increasing stream of filmmakers and musicians to spotlight their content to our community. The goal is to experiment with different technologies, programs and platforms to help artists connect directly with you, and just as importantly help you discover great new content. 

As we continue to build out the App Studio and our artist programs, we’re also listening to feedback from you about what you are looking to download. Armed with your iPads and Kindles, books are repeatedly high on your wish list.

Today, we’re really excited to partner with our first author, Megan Lisa Jones, to distribute her book Captive. It’s a fantastic psychological thriller with a very timely storyline of political intrigue amidst terrorism and captivity. Download it free today. The torrent is here, or simply install the app in your client’s App Studio – you’ll love it. Want a physical copy? Buy it at Amazon (reviews too).

One of the things we really like about Megan is her adroit understanding of technology. She gets the fundamental technological benefits of BitTorrent – how files can be downloaded ultra-fast. She also believes that publishers must embrace technology and the Internet audience, and work with it. We applaud her decision to help us continue with our experiments and blaze a new digital trail for authors. 

Check it out and let us know what you think! And while you’re at it, go download some of our other recent releases, such as the awesome film Zenith (Part 1) and Sick of Sarah’s indie-rock album “2205.” Plus, don’t miss Episode 3 of Pioneer One, just released earlier this week by our friends at VODO!
