SUPER COOL BOOKS iPAD APP _____ Enter the amazing imagination of Don Bosco and collect all these stories from his transmedia studio

Besides writing stories and creating fiction franchises, I've also been trying to develop a small digital publishing venture. The Super Cool Books iPad ebookstore was first introduced back in 2013. (Read about it here.) We created it with Tusitala, a Singapore company that develops apps and makes websites. What we have is basically a digital indie bookstore inside an app: you get to buy all sorts of special story content created by Super Cool Books. The latest version of this app is by far the most exciting. It has ebooks for children, as well as new content for teens. And there are some creative journals too, so you get to understand the evolution of a story project from idea to development to actually putting it out into the world. We hope to publish content from other writers and creators soon. In the meantime, do check out the new app. (Download here.) And let us know how you enjoy it. Happy reading!

From Tusitala website:

In 2011, author Don Bosco’s two sons posed him with a challenge – could he write a fantasy story set in Singapore and Malaysia for children? The Time Talisman series were Don’s creative response, and Super Cool Books was born. Since then, we’ve witnessed Super Cool Books grow, expand and evolve. What has remained an unwavering constant is Don’s commitment to creating and sharing stories that often have strong Asian themes, and his willingness to share the insight and knowledge with budding writers.

In the spirit of evolution and growth, we’re happy to announce that the Super Cool Books iPad app we’ve been working on has been updated to reflect Don’s widening readership. The app itself is free to download, and acts as an ebook store featuring classic and latest titles from Don Bosco. Few titles are completely free, and others are available as in-app purchases waiting to be added to your library.
