We’ve been undergoing some big, exciting changes at my place of employment, and I wanted to share a little bit about how I’ve spent the majority of my life for the last six months!
When I first began working at Byliner, we were a digital publisher of short fiction and non-fiction stories. These e-books were written by best-selling authors like Nick Hornby (About A Boy, High Fidelity), Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club, Invisible Monsters), Jon Krakauer (Into The Wild), and Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake), but were shorter than their full 400 page novels — perfect reads for the busy, modern-day person on the go, who still craves the intellectual and emotional fulfillment of a story with a beginning, middle, and end. These titles sell on Amazon, iBookstore, and Barnes & Noble and can be read on the e-reader of your choice (Kindle, iPad, Nook, etc.) You can still check out all of our titles here.
But now we’re branching out!! In the last few months, Byliner has become a premium subscription reading service, The Netflix for Reading. Now, we’re working with hundreds of the world’s best writers, to provide our users access to THOUSANDS of stories from publications like The New Yorker, Time, Vanity Fair, Esquire, The Atlantic, even Playboy (some people really do like the articles!), as well as unlimited access to all of our original e-books. After you subscribe, you can literally read for days on your computer, phone, and even offline on our new iPad app!
The iPad app is Byliner’s latest achievement; the ideal solution for people who don’t know what to read next, or are in the mood to discover something exciting and new! You can choose from topics and authors you love, select a story based on reading time, or let Byliner surprise you! You can also save stories to your Nightstand to read later, and once you’re done, you can share them with your friends! Click here to watch a short video that explains the app in detail!
