Awkward Two – the First Fiction Book with Embedded Video

September 30, 2010 By: Category: Awkwardness

Not a mock-up.

Oh mah gah. I just popped over to the iTunes bookstore to check on the status of Awkward Two, and guess what? WE HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED! Ya know what this means? This means we are the VERY FIRST FICTION BOOK IN EXISTENCE with embedded video.

Okay, that probably isn’t exactly true. Have you ever seen the Alice in Wonderland iPad thing? That shit is sweet. But I will say this with absolute (99%) certainty: we are (almost) certainly the first book of short stories ever released with instant film adaptations. The (maybe possibly) first! Mark my words!

You can buy the book with video right now for $6.99. (I have no idea how to link to the iTunes bookstore through the regular old telonet, or else I’d send you directly to the page.) Check it out right here.

By mid-October, we’ll have a total of six short films embedded in the book; right now, there are only three (plus the bonus Awkward trailer). As the other two become available, you’ll be able to update your copy for free. And if any other filmmakers are inspired and want to make films for the other stories in the book, get in touch with us and we’ll make it happen! The more, the merrier!

If you ever read books on your iPhone, iPad or iPod, we’d really appreciate it if you could throw us a couple of bucks in solidarity. We have no idea how to get the iTunes store to notice us, but if we sell a few copies, they just might be inclined to feature the book. Even if you don’t ever think you’ll read it … consider it a donation to a just cause. We would totally do the same for you. If you ever released the first ever fiction book with embedded video, we would totally buy it. Oh, wait, too late, cause WE ALREADY DID IT. BOOM!
