Digital Americana - Groundbreaking Literary Tablet Magazine is Back

in Books (E)

[] New York, New York - Today Hand Fashioned Media is proud to announce the return of Digital Americana Magazine (DAM 2.0), the world's first literary magazine made exclusively for tablet computing, with their new app built on the Pixel Mags platform. Digital Americana features over 70 pages of original content, brilliant fiction, poetry, articles, interviews, and reviews. The magazine is also offered in 6-month and 12-month discounted bundles, bringing the per-issue price down to less than $0.99 USD with a yearly subscription.

"As an independent magazine, we wanted to update the app with many of the features our readers have been asking for and still be able to offer the magazine for 99 cents or less," says Tony Fasciano, DAM Editor-in-Chief, "And it was not until we saw what Pixel Mags was able to provide, and what they had in store down the road that we knew now was the time to relaunch."

In the over 70 pages of DAM's relaunch issue, the first-of-its-kind literary & culture magazine features the writing of Sara Taylor, an exclusive interview with author Jonathan Dee about what it means to be a novelist today, a reflection on freedom from a recent Cairo revolutionary, and Matt Pless sings the Digital Americana song, but not before MC Bisco Smith can answer the burning question: What is the Freeze Project?

On the overall app experience, novelist and Senior Staff Adviser, Fred Leebron says, "Digital Americana represents the very best of what 'cutting edge' actually means when applied to the literary arts: timely and bold interviews with the leading lights, the newest creative work from the freshest voices, and a lay-out that will knock your eyes out." By downloading today, readers are not just supporting creative writing, but they help to define the future of independent tablet publishing.
