Boston, MA, September 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Instebooks today announced a new release of Golf Journal, its golf-themed personal publishing app that makes it possible for anyone with a passion for golf and an Android device to author their own eBook. “Golf Journal is perfect for preserving your golf memories or sharing your golfing experiences,” said Matthew Stowell, Founder of Instebooks. “Whether its a buddies golf trip or tracking your own golf courses bucket list, preserve those memories as an eBook.”
Publishing with Golf Journal is fast and easy because it works entirely from your mobile device. “With Golf Journal you can publish an entire eBook in less time than it takes to make a tee time,” said Stowell. Golf Journal lets users create stories on the go by simply selecting images and speaking. “A feature I personally like, is that you can write the narrative by just talking,” said Stowell. “The description of each moment conveys a rhythm that you don't get when typing.”
In addition to converting the speech to text, Golf Journal also automatically indexes the content, then adds maps, a table of contents, articles about golf, and a unique custom cover to every eBook. "The mapping feature in Golf Journal really enhances the story,” said Stowell “depending on the scope of each book, you can see your movements around the golf course or the different courses you've played.”
Golf Journal includes more than 50 professional entries, images, and mini-articles on golf-related terms, courses, equipment, people and places. This extra content enhances the golf chronicle for the designated audience—usually friends and family—by showing them interesting facts, histories, and ideas. “Your readers might be avid golfers or think golf to be 'a good walk spoiled,' but by reading your Golfing Journal they’ll understand your passion and why it’s special to you.” Golf Journal also lets readers find themselves with the golfer. “In the who’s who index, readers can look themselves up, see a list of all the golf rounds they shared with the author, and then jump to those stories,” said Stowell. “That’s something that’s only possible in eBooks.”
Golf Journal eBooks can be read on the web or downloaded to an eReader but so far are targeted at personal rather than commercial audiences. “Right now Golf Journal is designed to help you publish for your personal audiences,” said Stowell. “At some point passionate authors might generate a community and a larger audience like YouTube videos. ”
Golf Journal makes eBook publishing accessible to anyone passionate about golf. “Everyone will publish their experiences in eBooks,” said Stowell. “It’s the best way to preserve and share those memories. Whether you are reviewing Golf Digest on your tablet or reading Harvey Penick's Little Red Book on your eReader, you should read your own golf experiences the same way.”
Golf Journal is available in the Android Market and publishes eBooks in the epub format.
