Indigo Launches e-Book Service Shortcovers
There has been a lot of progress with e-reading and e-books lately and soon Canadians will have expanded options. Indigo has annnounced a new e-book service 12 months in the making called Shortcovers which will work similar to Apple's iTunes store and will be accessible on BlackBerry Storm, iPhone, iPod Touch and Google Android, as well as on a computer. Shortcovers is being launched in both Canada through Indigo and the U.S.A through Barnes&Noble. Self-published and unpublished writers will also be able to submit chapters to the service either for free, with or without ads, or for a fee of $0.99. More details here.
