SANTA ROSA, Calif., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Democrasoft, Inc. (OTC: Pinksheets: DEMO) and VOOK, today announced that Democrasoft's WeJIT™ technology is now available through Vook's VookMaker program. WeJITs allow an e-book reader to communicate, from within the e-book, directly with the author, with other existing readers, and with new individuals outside the book who are not yet readers, but who can start participating in book-based discussions, expanding a book's new readership and reach.
Vook's ability to combine ebooks with the WeJIT cloud-based discussion platform enable the author and readers to interact with each other from inside the e-book. This non-exclusive new service for VOOK comes in the wake of the recent joint-announcement by Democrasoft, VOOK, and Waterside Productions, of the world's first two-way interactive e-book, made possible by WeJIT technology. The top selling book, 11 Days in May, by JD Messinger and published by Waterfront Digital Press, included 32 embedded WeJIT discussions. That announcement quickly led to requests from other authors around the country to have the same WeJIT capabilities in their own e-books.
Matthew Cavnar, VP of Business Development at Vook, stated, "The combination of our ebook creation and distribution abilities and Democrasoft's WeJIT capabilities is something that we believe is going to help authors develop savvy new ways to market their ideas and connect with their audience,"
WeJITs are designed to allow VOOK authors to offer an interactive experience for their readers and to increase both new hardcover and e-book sales, due to the WeJIT's interactive nature and the readers' ability to share individual book-based discussions outside of the current e-book community. Readers can forward the URL for any embedded WeJIT discussion to anyone, even those who don't yet have the book and may have never heard of it. New WeJIT participants then have the opportunity to purchase the book and other offerings from the author or publisher.
"E-books are rapidly evolving" said Democrasoft CEO Richard Lang. "WeJITs provide multi-way interactive author-reader-reader experiences inside of e-books, as well as bringing in brand new readers. This enables authors to have impact and reader engagement that is far greater than what the traditional e-book experience currently affords."

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
