New York, NY, August 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Author Mary Mackey has published nine novels and a book of poetry on Vook’s online store at Vook.com. Vook is also distributing the ten eBooks to Barnes & Noble and Apple’s iBookstore.
Spanning millennia and continents, Mary’s novels grapple with female suppression, ecological destruction, and forbidden relationships. Alta Gerry’s Shameless Hussy Press, the first feminist press in the United States, printed Mary’s first novel, Immersion in 1972. It ushered in the genre of eco-feminism by linking the suppression of women with the degradation of nature. “I have continued to write about the struggle of women to carve out lives for themselves. My heroines have guts and courage; they’re loyal and dedicated; work hard; demand equality; love men who treat them well; and take risks,” writes Mary.
Mary believes that “eBooks are one of the greatest changes in publishing since the invention of the printing press.” From printing in a garage to releasing her titles online, Mary has experienced every great publishing innovation of the last half century. Shameless Hussy housed their letterpress in Alta’s garage, where Mary came to help in the printing process. Mary used an electric typewriter, then an IBM Selectric typewriter, and eventually bought her first computer in 1980, programming in DOS. Vook and Mary champion eBooks for their ability to reach wider audiences and resurrect out-of-print titles.
Vook provides a cloud-based ePublishing platform that makes it easy to create, distribute and track the sales of great looking digital books.
