Idgie Says: 
And how fun does THIS look!?!?! I love to keep little short stories on my phone for those rare times I don't have a book in hand and have 5 extra minutes. The stories also come with bonus animated graphics - what's not to like?  It's a very pulp fiction type writing style (no, not the graphically violent movie!) Not classic literature, but when you're settling down for the night and want 5 minutes of reading, or are stuck waiting in the coffee line, airport, doctor's office... anywhere - this is perfect light reading to pass the time and keep you entertained.

I have Pirate Lair on my phone and read one chapter over morning coffee today... perfect!

Some of the world's greatest adventure stories, from the likes of Charles Dickens, Alexandre Dumas, Herman Melville, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Stephen King and Michael Chabon have been written as serials.  Now the genre gets even more exciting with adrenaline-pumping serials created for the digital age.
Combining the adrenaline rush of the thriller, the visual punch of the graphic novel and the portable technology of the smart phone or tablet, GETFISK is the cutting-edge, fast-paced entertainment for the millennium, designed to be read on-the-go. Created by Potboiler LLC, these mobile device suspense serials take readers where no eBook has gone before—to the edge of their seats through combining a traditional book format with elements from graphic novels, pulp fiction, and anime (the great art form and storytelling of Japanese animation).
No publisher has turned up the volume in the way Potboiler has by delivering espionage thrills in bite-sized chunks—20,000-word novellas with topics as current as the daily news. These novellas, released in daily chapters and monthly episodes, center on a mysterious figure known only as “Fisk” and his colleagues—special operative Carlos Madrid, actress Tarita Lee and United Nations Deputy Secretary General, Dr. Mai Lindstrom. Stories include:
·         PIRATE LAIR: An adventure on the high-seas when one of Fisk's oil tankers is hijacked in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia. To find the pirates and the missing tanker, he sends Tarita and Carlos into pirate-infested waters as bait in a dangerous game.

·         MIDNIGHT IN JUAREZ: Fisk gets caught in a hair-raising thriller when his operations in Mexico are being threatened by drug cartel warfare. He sends Carlos and Tarita to find the mysterious cartel boss named Paco Fuentes, who may or may not be Carlos' half-brother. 

·       JAVA JACKAL (Coming this summer): A mysterious and legendary revolutionary is operating in Indonesia as a Muslim holy man. Fisk sends Tarita to Bali under the guise of shooting a new blockbuster film, but in reality to take on the insurgent Imam, if they can find him.

The creative minds behind this publishing game-changer are former Google manager Jeff Gillis and publishing strategist Lynden Gillis, who bring together highly accomplished artists, writers, editors and designers to create this bold, new digital publishing vision. 
Published in partnership with the digital publishing and distribution platform Vook, Potboiler accesses industry-leading technology to design and quickly produce their original ebooks and distribute them through Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and anywhere e-books are sold. Single chapters of each novella can be viewed daily on during the first month of that novella’s release.
