GHOSTLY | why you should read this book




Here's an article about how we developed and published our new book Ghostly on a mini budget, using social media tools and design prototyping techniques. 

You can use these ideas if you'd like to create your own stories too!

EXCERPT: 
"One evening in 2011 my two young sons suggested that we start a publishing company and produce fantasy and mystery stories for kids, all set in Asia. What they really meant was that they’d supply me with awesome ideas and I would slave away and make it all work. I didn’t have the heart to tell them no. 
That was the start of our micro-publishing studio, Super Cool Books. We didn’t have easy access to the usual industry resources. But around the same time I came across some interesting ideas about a new approach to publishing."
The Ghostly paperback is available at Select Books and most major bookstores in Singapore (US$5.68 / SGD7.38 before tax). The ebook edition is available on iTunes, B&N, Smashwords and many other ebookstores. It's free for a limited period.
