There may be only 2 volumes published so far in the Scags Series but there are so many ways to own them.
We’ve gone from offering the books in e-book only format to print on demand as well. And then, to open up even more ways to read and for us to expand the whole idea of reading, we now have created Living Books available only on the iPad app. This means that however you want to experience the series, it will be available as an e-book, as a bound book through the Espresso Book Machine system or as an iPad app. This amount of choice is meant to be intriguing or it may just be confusing. Whatever your response to it, please go ahead and order away and send us a comment or two about what you think of all our ordering options. We are even offering a signed copy of the original printing of Scags at 7, personalized for you, at a very reasonable cost.

New Scaggs iPad App
What we have created is a Living Book. The new iPad app is something that we are very proud of and want to encourage all readers whether they have read the books in other versions to also buy them in the app.
The Scags app is Sullivan Street Press’ way to enter the newer part of the e-book age and to show what can be done to enhance the experience of reading a book. A Living Book is one that grows and changes. It is one that allows the reader to interact with the author and to also interact with other readers. It is a new kind of book that helps to explore more than is on the page in ways that are creative, interactive, and engaging.
Some readers will find this new format a way to educate themselves about a time and places. Other readers will become engaged in the fanzine writing. Others most likely will be interested in the social issues that are explored in the series. And I am sure that many will also become involved in all of this and more as they dig into what is provided only for readers of the iPad app versions of the Scags Series.
Digging deeper means that we can become involved with what has happened to Scags during the time she was in high school or after she left college and beyond. The Series may have only four volumes but by the time the entire series is on the app, I am confident all readers will know the entire story of Scags’ life. Making this a joint process is another reason why this series is a Living Book.
Here is what Paul Canetti, Founder and CEO of MAZ, had to say about our new iPad app:
“We are thrilled to be working with a brand like Scags that really takes advantage of the interactive features MAZ provides. To date, eBooks have been as static as their paper ancestors, but after reading Scags on the iPad you will start to understand the true potential of digital reading. The way that they integrate web content and social media into the pages of the book is groundbreaking, and I’m just happy that MAZ is able to give them the tools to make their creative vision a reality.”
