Boston, MA, September 12, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Instebooks today announced a new release of Cooking Journal, its cooking-themed personal publishing app that makes it possible for anyone with a love for cooking and an Android device to author their own eBook. “Cooking Journal is perfect for sharing or remembering your cooking-related stories,” said Richard Reece, CEO of Instebooks. “Anyone who likes cooking or has a cooking adventure can now publish those stories as an eBook.”
Publishing with Cooking Journal is fast and easy because it works entirely from the mobile phone. “With Cooking Journal you can publish an entire eBook in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee,” said Reece. Cooking Journal lets users create stories on the go by simply selecting images and speaking. “One of the really great features is that you don’t need to type, you can write your story by just talking,” said Reece. “It’s true storytelling.”
In addition to converting the speech to text, Cooking Journal also automatically indexes the content, then adds maps, a table of contents, articles about cooking, and a unique custom cover to every eBook. “The indexing feature in Cooking Journal is awesome for sharing your stories and making them interesting,” said Reece. ”In the index, you can see where you were, who was with you, and all the times when you were doing something specific like baking or deep frying.”
Cooking Journal includes more than 100 professional entries, images, and mini-articles on cooking-related terms, techniques, equipment, people and places. This extra content enhances the cooking adventures for the designated audience—usually friends and family—by showing them interesting facts, histories, and ideas. “Your readers may—or may not-- love to cook, but by reading your Cooking Journal they’ll understand your passion and why it’s special to you.” Cooking Journal also lets readers find when they entered the cook’s world. “In the who’s who index, readers can look themselves up, see a list of all the meals they shared with the author, and then jump to those stories,” said Reece. “That’s something that’s only possible in eBooks.”
Cooking Journal eBooks can be read on the web or downloaded to an eReader but aren’t for commercial audiences-- yet. “So far Cooking Journal is designed to help you publish for your personal audiences,” said Reece. “But maybe passionate authors will generate a community and a larger audience like YouTube videos.”
Cooking Journal makes eBook publishing accessible to anyone with a love for cooking and a desire to share that passion. “It’s inevitable, everyone will publish their experiences in eBooks,” said Reece. “It’s the best way to preserve and share those memories. If you’re swiping through a Wolgang Puck cookbook on your tablet or reading Anthony Bourdain’s latest expose on your eReader,m why not read your own cooking stories the same way?”
Cooking Journal is available in the Android Market and publishes eBooks in the epub format.
