Digital Short Saturday is beginning to battle it out with a few other days during the week as the most viewed days here @ Gelati’s Scoop. Is it coincidence? I think not. The ereading world is changing and evolving each week , either in number of platforms it is on , or the types of devices on which one can view ebooks. Here is a link to an article from just a few days ago on Blackberry’s new device and what Amazon is doing to be prepared for it: http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/ebooks/amazon_prepares_ereader_app_for_new_blackberry_tablet_174297.asp
Here is a link to see what Android is up to in the ereader forum, it seems that Google and Amazon have things to think about:
I think that the completion is just beginning and we the consumers will be the beneficiary of all this competition. I am having a nice time sorting through all the different digital shorts I can find to bring to you each week. Jeffrey Martins is a good example.
Red , White and Blood hits the nail on the head. The digital short comes in at 8460 words, is a nice quick moving read and carries all the necessary elements of a good police drama. Here is the synopsis from the Smashwords website: “ Independence Day in Marcona has turned deadly. A crazed bomber has decided to terrorize all in his path and won’t stop until his revenge is complete. Chief of Police Mark Blankenship and his daughter are unexpected targets of the attack, and they find themselves in a struggle for survival. Will Blankenship be able to find the device, or will the trail of bloodshed include everything he loves?”
I enjoy a good story that has things blow up and has a lot of pent up hostility. This a simple tale, but Jeffrey Martin infuses it with plenty of zest and gusto. We get to follow Mark Blankenship and his cohorts as they try to thwart the efforts of the mad bomber from exacting his revenge and creating too much carnage. Emotion, the human condition, good descriptive ability, and a complete story told in a very small and concise word count is what Red ,White and Blood has awaiting you.
I know many of you are like me and enjoy reading many different things, different genres, different authors. The digital short has been a fun part of the week for me, a break, a respite, something that packs a punch in a short period of time. I am not trying to say that the full length novels are tedious, but getting that quick hit to break things up is fun, and that is what this all about. Check this story out and support the author. The best part of the deal is they ask so little in return, for this story , it is a dollar. What can you get with that today?
