VOOK to Offer Interactive Ebook Publishing With WeJITs

Democrasoft, Inc. and VOOK announced that Democrasoft’s WeJIT technology is now available through VOOK’s VookMaker program. WeJITs allow an ebook reader to communicate, from within the ebook, directly with the author, with other existing readers, and with new individuals outside the book who are not yet readers, but who can start participating in book-based discussions. This expands a book’s new readership and reach.

VOOK’s ability to combine ebooks with the WeJIT cloud-based discussion platform enable the author and readers to interact with each other from inside the ebook. This nonexclusive new service for VOOK comes in the wake of the recent joint announcement by Democrasoft, VOOK, and Waterside Productions, of the world's first two-way interactive ebook, made possible by WeJIT technology. The top-selling book, 11 Days in May, by J.D. Messinger and published by Waterfront Digital Press, included 32 embedded WeJIT discussions. That announcement quickly led to requests from other authors around the country to have the same WeJIT capabilities in their own ebooks.

WeJITs are designed to allow VOOK authors to offer an interactive experience for their readers and to increase both new hardcover and ebook sales, due to the WeJIT's interactive nature and the readers’ ability to share individual book-based discussions outside of the current ebook community. Readers can forward the URL for any embedded WeJIT discussion to anyone, even those who don’t yet have the book and may have never heard of it. New WeJIT participants then have the opportunity to purchase the book and other offerings from the author or publisher.
