Hey, everyone! My name is Jordan, and I own/operate Icarus Wings Software, LLC, an LA-based software company.
I've recently made the acquaintance of a V.M. Zito, author of the soon-to-be-published novel 'The Return Man'. Zito was able to self-publish his WIP chapter by chapter on a website, until it was eventually picked up by Hodder & Stoughton for publishing.
That gave me an idea; why not create an app that allows up-and-coming authors to publish their works like Zito did? Thus, 'Foreword' was born! Chapter by chapter, 'Foreword' lets you publish your stories and build up a dedicated following of readers before you're ever published!
Basic non-author users of the app can browse stories based on tags the author creates, read and rate thousands of titles, subscribe to their favorite stories/authors, and be notified when there's new material to be read!
We need funding to make this happen, though; if you love books, want to be read by thousands and thousands of everyday app users, and possibly be discovered and published, then head on over to http://igg.me/p/62990?a=346526 and donate!
A donation gets you a copy of the app!
