***MEDIA ALERT***

Toronto, Canada—October 12, 2010— PadWorx Digital Media Inc, an independent developer of the definitive interactive, user-driven eBook experience on tablet PCs, today announced that it will launch its debut title, Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition for Apple®iPad™, at $4.99 for a limited time.

“Excuse the pun, but this is a killer deal,” said Jeffery Alan Schechter, director and producer at PadWorx Digital Media, Inc.“With almost 300 pages of Bram Stoker’s classic story, interactivity that defines the capabilities of the iPad, more than 600 illustrations, hours of music, and over 150 sound effects designed to draw the reader into the flow of the story, Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition creates not just a new reading experience, but a new type of entertainment experience; one that will appeal to everyone from fans of classic novels to modern day vampire genre enthusiasts.”

Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition is the first in a series of new interactive eBooks created for Apple iPad by PadWorx Digital Media.   Built from the ground up on a proprietary game engine and endorsed by the Stoker family estate, the eBook puts a new twist on the classic novel written by Bram Stoker in 1897. From lighting up the words of the page with a lantern, unsealing the mysteries of letters and journal entries, blowing the leaves off of tombstones to reveal the writing beneath, and even using their own“blood” to reveal hidden text on a page, readers will bring the book to life page after enthralling page. Readers will also be able to uncover several rare historical images, audio and film from the earliest days of the Dracula legacy, some never before released to the public.

Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition will also feature an original soundtrack as well as 21 songs from indie rock performers Adaline, Christa Couture, Emily Spiller, Eve and the Ocean, and Phoebe Sharp. Each song will set the tone for a different chapter from the book, creating a whole new way of experiencing this classic story.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to download your very own copy of Dracula: The Official Stoker Family Edition for iPad the week of October 18th for the limited time price of $4.99!
