Jan. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- Big Skye Ranch, a groundbreaking e-book targeted at teens, was created by authors Laura Ambler and Mala Burt writing as the irreverent and fictitious Laurel Jaguar. The novel which was recently named winner of the London Book Festival’s e-book competition also received the festival’s prestigious Grand Prize Runner-Up Award.

"We were thrilled to win the e-book category," Burt stated, "but we wonder what it says about the future of publishing when an e-book claims the runner-up prize for the entire Festival in what is a traditional publishing competition." "We think kids will continue to read," Ambler added, "but they'll do it differently in the future."

The London Book Festival pronounced Big Skye Ranch, "A forerunner of a new generation of e-books that are roping in the hard-to-reach teenage audience. Wrapped in a salacious package, "Big Skye Ranch" uses full color graphics and provocative subject matter to bridge the reading generation gap."

At Big Skye Ranch last chance teens confront themselves and their issues; sexual abuse, cutting, and sexting, at a boot camp ranch in the Montana wilderness. There they are empowered by peers, learn to trust, and embrace self-worth. Important messages for readers of any age.

Written and designed to be read on smart phones, e-reader devices, and laptops, Big Skye Ranch can change the way teens read. The eye catching color illustrations encourage even the most reluctant reader.

Taking Japan by storm, this digital medium is quickly becoming a worldwide phenomenon. Unrestrained by the confines of traditional publishing, digital books like the new Big Skye Ranch series feature full-length novels available at the price of a ring tone or application download.
