Storybook App Lands Author 3 Book Deal

Rick Richter's digital publishing venture, Ruckus Media, today is releasing its first author-centric app, A Present for Milo, and its creator has landed a three-book deal. The app, which follows the titular mouse being chased by a cat throughout a house, has earned its author/creator, Mike Austin, a three-book deal with Blue Apple Books. Agent Rubin Pfeffer closed the deal for Austin, and the first book, scheduled for fall 2011, is a lift-the-flap title.
