Publishing platform Tablo announced the launch of its new app ‘Tablo Reader’ on Thursday. It allows readers to discover their next favorite author from a library of new and emerging books while they are being written.
Ash Davies, Founder and CEO, Tablo said the app is the beginning of an entirely new discovery experience for both authors and readers.
“We’ve worked hard to create an experience where you can’t judge a book by its cover. With Tablo Reader, you browse by reading. You scroll through synopses and opening lines and, if something catches your eye, you’re a swipe away from the entire book,” Davies explained.
“Tablo is becoming a place for readers to discover, and for authors to be discovered. Today’s best musicians and filmmakers are uncovered on platforms like YouTube. We’d like to see the next generation of bestselling authors uncovered on Tablo, through the Tablo Reader,” he added.
Tablo allows users to create, publish and read new books. It is currently home to 20,000 authors from 130 countries, who are publishing more than one million words a day, said an official release.
The startup claims to be building a community of readers who are keenly engaging with authors during the traditionally solitary writing process.
“The app disrupts the traditional publishing model by allowing readers to take part in writers’ creative journeys,” said the 21-year-old founder.
