Get expert answers to the most common questions facing ebook designers and developers today—from typography and source files to digital workflows. Every day, news about exciting and innovative digital releases come across the virtual news desk here at Digital Book World, and every few weeks, we’d like to take some time to just point out a few titles that are making waves in the digital publishing space.
In case you missed it, Peter Costanzo, Director of Digital Content here at F+W Media, also recently penned a great behind-the-scenes piece on The Everything Learning Language series, just released from Adams Media. But here are some quick links to some other projects released in the past few weeks that have caught my attention. The “amplified edition” of “On the Road,” released today by Penguin Classics, certainly comes tricked out with more fancy bells and whistles than a BMW M5. Pretty much the only thing missing is the chance to hear the novel read aloud by that sexy-voiced woman from your GPS.
Marketing guru Seth Godin created a new imprint, The Domino Project, in partnership with Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) as a vehicle to experiment with pricing, promotion and other aspects of publishing. With 6100 words spread across 59 pages and a limited budget for illustration, our mission was to create attractive and readable text pages, interspersed with 20 interactive illustrations. With The Jungle Book, our mission is to bring to our young readers and their parents an experience that doesn’t replace print books, but rather adds to the conversation, expectations, and definition of what a story can be. Created by [Jeff] Smith, a multiple award-winning cartoonist, the critically acclaimed BONE series centers around the humor-laced misadventures of the BONE cousins.
Published by the #1 children’s book publisher in the world, Scholastic, BONE is one of two books written by Smith that will be released on comiXology.
This is just a taste of some of the great things being created out there in the digital book world, but we’re sure there’s more. Little about my primitive upbringing, in a remote mining town carved into the upper reaches of the Amazon jungle, prepared me for a first-of-a-kind scholarship to the United States Military Academy.


Available as an eBook only, it describes what happened upon my return in 1973 to a government turned repressive, anti-American, and paranoid – overnight.
More than a memoir, the historically-accurate PATH to FREEDOM provides a unique prism through which to see the cultural trauma of emigration, the personal side of Cold-War-era geopolitics, and the mayhem of Third World politics. Ia€™m a musician, programmer, writer, entrepreneur, and student a€” though not in that order. Ia€™m fascinated with the usable psychology of self-improvement, business, philosophy, and intercultural relativism.
Originally a professional musician and circus clown, Derek Sivers created CD Baby in 1998. It became the largest seller of independent music online, with $100M in sales for 150,000 musicians. In 2008, Derek sold CD Baby for $22M, giving the proceeds to a charitable trust for music education. Since 2011 he has published 34 books, including a€?Anything You Wanta€? which shot to #1 on all of its Amazon categories. Tales from my CD Baby experience: Entrepreneur lessons learned from starting, building, and selling CD Baby.
20 books about starting a business in Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. It includes the full text of the novel, of course, with expandable marginal notes giving historical and biographical background. The Domino Project’s latest title, Anything You Want by CD Baby founder Derek Sivers, aims to hook consumers with 200 free MP3s when they buy the book…. Nigel created unique spot illustrations and thematic backgrounds for our text pages….


We hope it will provide hours of enjoyment as readers of all ages are transported to Mowgli’s world.
The second, RASL, is a stark, black and white comic book focusing on the hard-boiled adventures of an art thief who hops through dimensional barriers, hiding out on various parallel worlds. It charts a sometimes-humorous journey of perseverance, resilience, hope, survival, and love, as I traversed between Guyana and the highly-regimented United States Military Academy – at the height of the Vietnam War. The view will be nostalgic for some (Age-of-Aquarius baby boomers), shocking to many (fellow military academy graduates), familiar to cultural transplants, and enlightening for others (aficionados of true stories, academicians, and the curious young). An interactive map traces Kerouac’s three real-life cross-country road trips, with links to relevant passages from the novel.
100 copies of the book were also available as a “very limited edition collectible,” and they’ve all sold out, Seth Godin told me.
In a starred review, Publisher’s Weekly described it as “ a stunning narrative that impresses with its originality, sophistication, and complexity.” RASL will also get its own dedicated app. The narrative sums up rude awakenings, especially after West Point – because of West Point. There are never-before-seen photos, rare audio clips of Kerouac reading from an early draft, previously unreleased documents from his publisher’s archive, and a slide show of international covers showing how the book has been marketed from Argentina to Ukraine to China.
And to celebrate their release, BONE #1 and RASL #1 will be free with the other books on sale for $.99 from July 14th-19th.
