In today's segment of the WordSmitten About the Books broadcast, Kate Sullivan interviews the CEO of Byliner, John Tayman. 
According to Fast Company, this hot new online firm is "One of the Ten Most Innovative Media Companies in the World." 
In a statement from the Byliner site, they describe themselves as publishers of short fiction and nonfiction books.
"What's Byliner's story? We're the leading publisher in the fastest-growing segment of digital books, commonly—if inelegantly—known as eSingles."
According to Byliner, they "commission and publish original stories from some of the world's best fiction and nonfiction writers. 
"These stories, written to be read in a single sitting, range between 5,000 and 30,000 words, and can be purchased at online booksellers for your Kindle, iPad/iPhone, NOOK, or Android device. Since our launch in June 2011 we've had 26 bestselling Byliner Originals, including works by Jon Krakauer, Nick Hornby, Margaret Atwood, Amy Tan, Ann Patchett, Buzz Bissinger, and others."
