Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 24, 2004 -
Â Malinche Entertainment, on the web at http://www.malinche.net, has announced the launch of its industry-changing retail program custom tailored to booksellers. Established in 2002 as the worldÂs only publisher of Interactive Fiction, MalincheÂs creation of this new retail channel program is a paradigm shift to the bookselling world.
ÂWeÂve taken the consignment model of selling titles and turned it on its ear,Â author and CEO Howard Sherman states. ÂWith standard consignment, the bookstore and the author make less on every copy sold. When a bookseller in our program sells a title theyÂre making roughly the same profit they would on a book they actually purchased but without any of the risks associated with buying books. We ship a box of our Interactive Fiction titles to the bookseller at no cost to them and they donÂt pay us a nickel until after a sale is made. Even then, they only pay for the titles sold at the end of the month. As far as I know, no other program has made consignment so rewarding or flexible. The bookseller is not only making an extremely generous profit without risk, theyÂre delivering exciting new products to their customers as well.Â
Interactive Fiction has been touted as the platform for the novel of the future where the reader actually communicates to the story taking on the role of the main character. The New York Times has dubbed Interactive Fiction Âparticipatory novelsÂ due to their total involvement of the reader. A reader loads a Malinche title on their computer (all computers are supported) and responds to the displays of prose on their screen. Since the story unfolds only in response to the readerÂs own choices, an immersive experience in the fictional work is created.
ÂMalinche has published two Interactive Fiction titles so far with a third scheduled for release this summer. With releases for every major genre represented or planned, readers of every sort of novel can be treated to a whole new way of enjoying fiction.Â, Mr. Sherman asserts. ÂMystery fans can put their detective skills to the test in Greystone while science fiction fans will really enjoy being the hero in our fantasy adventure First Light, a romp of swords and magic enveloped in a compelling plot. With Black Dragon coming out this summer, any reader who ever enjoyed a naval techno thriller is going to be blown out of their chair when they take command of the legendary battleship USS New Jersey.Â
Interested booksellers should send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-(877)-299-7999 for immediate consideration.
Started in 2002, Malinche is the worldÂs only publisher of Interactive Fiction where the reader gets inside the story. Howard Sherman, Implementor of Interactive Fiction and CEO of parent company Admiral Ventures, Corp. oversees all operations as he spins incredible tales that totally immerse the reader in the story. With international recognition by fans and critics alike, Malinche drives ahead delivering fictional works that read like a compelling novel but rivet the player to the story through direct involvement.
