  • Vook and Anne Rice

    One of the great things about working at Vook is that we constantly get to announce new titles we’re releasing with exciting authors. A few weeks ago, Seth Godin let slip that he’s working on a Vook with us—and today we can officially declare that we’re in production on a title with Anne Rice. Called The Master of Rampling Gate, our Vook will offer readers, vampire fans, lovers of Gothic fiction and everyone interested in new ways to experience stories an innovative take on Anne Rice’s classic blend of the romantic, the uncanny, and the truly frightening.  The Master of Rampling Gate is a Rice short story that will probably be brand new to most readers. We’ve spent a lot of time finding the best way to address the narrative with videos and create a Vook that lets you get lost in the story and explore a variety of different takes on Rice’s world at your convenience, all in the same easy-to-use format of the Vook application.

    As the videos start to arrive at Vook HQ, we’ll be grabbing some snippets and posting them to our YouTube account. Keep an eye out for some of this new material before it gets into the vook. I’ll be sure to post alerts on Twitter and Facebook.

    And there’s a lot more titles in the works! More exciting news coming soon . . .

    See what Vook can do with Shakespeare

    We’ve worked with some pretty big name authors, but now we’re partnering with one of the world’s undisputed greats: William Shakespeare. And we think we’ve found a really interesting way to make some of his classic sonnets surpisingly fresh.

    Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re releasing Love, Love, Love: Shakespeare in The City. The vook features ten of Shakespeare’s timeless sonnets enhanced with passionate, funny, and deeply moving videos, where everyday people riff on the mysteries of love, the pain and the pleasure, the lust and the loss, sharing their feelings while they try to decipher the finer points of Shakespeare’s vision of the heart.

    Check out the trailer here. Or just pick up the Vook and see for yourself—it’s only $2.99, which is far cheaper than a bad date and full of enough insight to get you a great one.

    Anyone who’s ever been in love—or out of love—will find something to identify with here. The videos really bring the power of the poems home. Seeing real people dig into them in unexpected environments makes the diction and phrasing of Shakespeare instantly understandable, almost contemporary. It’s a must watch for students of poetry and the heart.
