India’s first SMS cell novel ‘Deaf Heaven‘ written by te National Award winning writer, Pinki Virani will be condensed into a pack of 90 SMSes and Reliance Mobile will make this novel available through a sms subscription pack. Subscribers will receive the entire novel thru a series of SMSes, 3 per day, spread over a period of 30 days. This SMS novel will be available by August.
Reliance Mobile also plans to convert “Deaf Heaven” into an Adult audio mobile book. The Audio book will be available on a Multimodal number. Reliance is currently working with the national award winning author to develop prompts for the Audio novel.
The concept that a novel can also be ‘read’ via SMS and ‘heard’ at any time via voice portals is itself an unique & innovative idea being implemented by Reliance. Similar to the e-book, its mobility and anytime access is a convenience that may help grow readership of such novels.
