Enhanced e-books aren’t new and neither are interactive e-books. But one thing that you don’t see too much of is interactive e-books that operate as true e-books (no apps required!). These are books that you find in the Kindle store rather than the App store. They work on every device, from black and white Kindles to iPad 3s. But you probably haven’t seen too many of these e-books—neither have I.
But now they are here and I’m very excited. Why? Because of what it means for authors. Consider all those plot turns you scratched. What if you included “alternate endings,” killed off your hero just to see what happened, and then allowed your reader to take a U-turn and continue the story? The material is already there from your editing and development process. Think of it as a “director’s cut”.
