Viral E-Flash Story Writing Project Developed by 21st Century Research Soon to Publish on Kindle
A revolution is taking place in the publishing industry as a result of the digital communications technologies such as E-Books and Social Media, which provide the authors with unique opportunities to control publication and marketing of their works.
E-Publishing is now extremely flexible and you can publish E-Books, E-Stories, E-Flash Novels, E-Documents, E-Lists, E-Albums, E-Cartoons, E-Posters, E-Announcements in various formats.
Most attractive is the fact that these E-Publications can be received and read by hundreds of millions of portable tablet devices throughout the world. These include the well known Amazon Kindle Fire, Touch, Keyboard, DX, 1st and 2nd Generation for PC and Mac devices. You can also read E-Publications using Nook E-Book readers of Barnes & Noble as well as iPad and IPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone Devices. Needless to say Google's Nexus 7 tablet is targeting the Kindle and Nook devices also and we can expect many more tablets of that type from other smartphone manufacturers.
Highly capable wireless digital devices provide the hardware infrastructure which opens up global communications for voice, text, images and video. Social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and YouTube provide the magnifier effect leading to the viral state of certain messages and products that are properly promoted and marketed.
These new social media are forms of publicity which traditionally was supplied by public relations services like the PRLog which distributes this particular press release. In fact there are now many digital PR services available to the author to promote his writing to specific markets. It is possible to direct a digital press release to specific groups within the social media communities further enhancing the potential for going viral
What it all means is that an author of today can become the writer, agent, publisher and promoter of his work without using outside services except for independent editorial assessment of his work. 21st Century Research is planning a special guide along those lines "Author, Agent, Publisher, Promoter" which will also be published on Amazon Kindle in the future.

About 21st Century Research
Bohdan O. Szuprowicz, President of 21st Century Research, arrived in the Unites States soon after the Russians launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957. He was recruited by Boeing in Seattle as an engineer and later he joined General Dynamics and IBM, whence he moved to the Center for Economic and Industrial Research Inc. headquartered in Washington DC. He began writing articles about progress of automation in many industries and became the editor of High Technology West, a subsidiary of the newspaper California Business in Los Angeles. This was followed by a round-the-world trip to evaluate computerization in many countries of Africa, Australasia and Europe and included a special visit to Vietnam to observe use of information technology under wartime conditions.
He founded the 21st Century Research consultancy and collaborated with Chase Manhattan Bank in setting up a market research operation to evaluate opportunities in China, the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. He traveled frequently to those areas and crossed Checkpoint Charlie to East Berlin on several occasions. He also toured South Africa to observe apartheid environments and met with independence fighters in Namibia. His work on network planning earned him an invitation to present it at the International Symposium on Operations Research for Developing Countries in Paris.
As a result of his experiences and research into geopolitics, he published “Doing Business with People’s Republic of China” and “How to Avoid Strategic Materials Shortages” with John Wiley & Sons, as well as “How to Invest in Strategic Metals” with St. Martin’s Press. He also published “Multimedia Networking” with McGraw-Hill, which included Japanese and Korean editions and “Multimedia Tools for Managers” developed for AMACOM. Szuprowicz also collaborated for several years with Computer Technology Research, which published corporate reports on Internet and networking technologies.
For several years Szuprowicz was managing editor of several newsletters on Internet technology applications and a columnist for Financial Sentinel, Moneyworld and other magazines. He published “Supergrowth Technology USA,” an investment newsletter, and consulted with many corporations on technology markets. His current research focus is on Nuclear Terror Geopolitics on a worldwide basis.
He also published hundreds of articles in many countries in journals such as Les Affaires, Atlanta Constitution, Australian Financial News, Barron’s Weekly, Bull & Bear, Business South Africa, California Business, Canadian Business, China Business Review, Christian Science Monitor, Computerworld, Denver Post, Dun’s Review, Eurofinance, Financial Post, Investment Dealers Digest, IPO Reporter, Japan Economic Journal, National Investment & Finance of India, Newsday, Newsweek International, New Scientist, Oficinas, Singapore Times, Skrzydlata Polska, Usine Nouvelle, Wall Street Microinvestor, Wall Street Transcript, ZeroUno and many others.
