Archives For pear jam books

In February 2012, we announced Pear Jam Books (PJB) and MyLi would team up to run a pilot programme providing Primary and Secondary schools in the UK with free access to e-books (click to see announcement).

PJB was founded by author, trainer, editor, publisher, storymaker, Jill Marshall in 2011.  As a successful author herself, she learned how authors like to be treated.  Hence Pear jAm; j for Jill and m for Marshall, with a big A for authors, at the heart of the company.

PJB books are all fiction, ranging from picture books through to adult fiction.  They are chosen because they are fantastic stories which MyLi’s target audience can enjoy.  These books can help develop their reading skills which will assist our young readers throughout their life.

The word “Pear”, forming the name of the company pays homage to the four formats in which their books are published:

  • P for play as an app, game or production,
  • E for e-book,
  • A for audio book, and
  • R for Read in the traditional print form.

These books will add value to MyLi’s services and we are looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for this collaboration.

Welcome to MyLi

Welcome to our creation, MyLi.  MyLi is the quick and easy way to discover the books you want.

It’s a simple web tool we have been working on for the past year, we have worked on fine tuning it and plan to deliver it in a way that is accessible regardless of your computer skills.

For our pilot schemes we have decided to trial MyLi amongst young pupils in the UK because they’d benefit mostly from this service especially as there is a lack of reliable services available for this demographic.  We currently have a manageable number of schools to pilot MyLi with for the first phase.

Pear Jam Books has currently agreed to work with us during these pilot schemes (http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/50578-new-zealand–s-pear-jam-books-teams-with-myli-com.html) and following recent meetings we might have one of the Big 6 Publishing houses on-board in coming weeks.

Stay tuned for future updates.
