Canadian Author Cheryl Kaye Tardif Writes a Novel Titled 'Finding Bliss' on the New iPhone 3G

Critically acclaimed author Cheryl Kaye Tardif plans to use the Notes application on her new iPhone 3G to write a novel titled 'Finding Bliss'. She may be the first author to ever attempt this.

    EDMONTON, AB, October 10, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Apple's new iPhone 3G hasn't been available in Canada for very long and already one Canadian has discovered a unique use for it. Critically acclaimed author Cheryl Kaye Tardif plans to use the Notes application to write a novel titled 'Finding Bliss'.

"I am often 'blasted' with an idea for a novel at the least convenient times," Tardif says. "Two nights ago a novel idea about a teenage girl named Bliss hit me. I had to capture her story right away, so I immediately reached for my iPhone."

Using the Notes application, Tardif drafted a brief outline for the novel, emailed the note to herself, then later copied the text into a Word document on her PC. It was her husband Marc, a cable installer for Shaw Cablesystems, who actually suggested the idea of writing the entire novel on the iPhone. It's an idea that excites her.

"I've already started Chapter 1," she says. "I plan to write each chapter on the iPhone, then edit it on my PC. And one of the characters will use an iPhone in the novel."

Tardif has contacted Apple to let them know what she is doing. She hopes to hear from someone within the corporation. Not only does she want them to know how impressed she is with the iPhone, she wants them to know about 'Finding Bliss'.

"I believe I'm the first author to attempt to write a complete novel using the iPhone."

When asked about the plot of the novel, Tardif states, "'Finding Bliss' will be an emotional, heartwarming story of a teenage girl who must fight to survive in a world of abuse, lies and loss. As she struggles to find herself, Bliss will discover exactly where she belongs and she'll learn that she is worthy of love after all."

Cheryl Kaye Tardif is the author of three successful novels--Whale Song, The River and Divine Intervention. She recently arranged, with her publisher Kunati Books, to have 125 copies of 'Whale Song' added to VIP bags for 125 celebrities and special guests who attend Dallas Rocks 2008, an event that raises funds for Russell Simmons' Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.) a non-profit international organization that supports education initiatives for disadvantaged people in Africa.
