New Website Set to Revolutionize the Publishing Industry
Palibra.com's innovative approach a hit with writers and readers worldwide!
Los Angeles, CA (June 2007) – The product of a late-night brainstorming session between two childhood friends has sparked the latest revolution in the publishing industry. JCM Entertainment co-founders Edwardo Jackson and Curt Midkiff have recently launched Palibra.com -- a website that many are calling the "iTunes of publishing" as it allows authors to post works immediately for download by interested readers.
According to Jackson, a well-respected author of three widely published novels, "We came up with the concept for Palibra.com in the midst of one of our marathon brainstorming sessions where we asked how can we create a platform where writers and readers can connect online? From there, it all came together in the form of this site which is allowing authors to publish their original works instantly for readers to enjoy!"
Palibra.com is a site where any author can post their work and any reader can download that work for only 99 cents. Each post is called a Narrative, limited to 8,000 words, and is free to post. Readers are also free to join and browse the first 250 words of most Narratives before purchasing to download.
Inspired by our current on-demand society, Palibra is the evolution and a revolution of the publishing industry. As of August 25, 2007, nearly 600 authors have posted 1800-plus Narratives in over 30 different genres for over 1.3 million hits since its debut. Among its posted authors are Essence bestsellers Karen E. Quinones Miller, Lolita Files, and Gloria Mallette, as well as critically acclaimed author Kenji Jasper.
Current marketing includes posts on MySpace, Facebook, Craigslist, and Google AdWords. First time users are allowed to visit Palibra and receive a free Narrative upon registration. An informative three minute Powerpoint presentation detailing Palibra is also available onsite at http://www.palibra.com/how-it-works.
