“TapBooks has provided astounding expertise in bringing Where to Find It ... into the digital world.”
(PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Since 1980, New Yorkers and visitors alike have long relied on the most comprehensive and trusted ‘Big Apple bible’ – exhaustively researched and updated by author and urban explorer Gerry Frank. Now in its 17th print edition, the author has personally called on hundreds of stores, restaurants, museums and hotels, and he and his staffers have revisited by phone with virtually every listing in this book. TapBooks has proudly been chosen to take this astounding body of work to the digital world and the first eBook edition is now live and available to readers in PDF format, on Amazon (for Kindle), Apple (for iPad/iPhone), Barnes & Noble (for Nook) and coming soon to other platforms.
“We are honored to work with Gerry Frank to take his highly-respected guidebook digital. His dedicated readers typically buy every edition and can now have the eBook in the palms of their hands as they explore Manhattan,” says Karen Henrich, TapBooks publisher. “I fully appreciate the dedication, hard work and heart that goes into researching, organizing and then finally writing the copy in an engaging way for readers in the documentation of one of the world’s most exciting cities. It’s beyond impressive what Gerry has done.”
LOCAL AND DEDICATED EXPERTS
TapBooks is quickly making a name for itself in the local travel genre and other hyper-niches by working with authors and writers who are high-living, on-the-street explorers. Not merely on assignment, these experts are truly living the dream and documenting it in their beloved cities such as New York, Paris, San Francisco and London. Gerry Frank became an authority on New York City as a result of having one foot in the Big Apple while growing up and working in one of America’s great department store (Meier & Frank) families. Later, he served as Chief of Staff for U.S. Senator Mark Hatfield in Washington, DC.
“Coming from the printed book world, TapBooks helped us to transform our print PDFs into a format suitable for digital publishing and then make it all work on the digital platforms,” says author Gerry Frank. “Karen Henrich, TapBooks publisher has provided astounding expertise in bringing Where to Find It ... into the digital world.”
