In a couple of days Border Watch will be available as an ebook on the iBook Apple site! I’m very excited that Hachette has joined the e-revolution, though a little nervous as well… Booksellers have been incredibly supportive, hand-selling Border Watch to a stack of happy customers and I thank them for that. I’d hate to think that those small and medium businesses who work so hard to promote reading might find operating conditions even tougher with the rise and rise of e-books.
I do think ultimately genres like Romance will prosper as more books become available in digital format. I also hope that many many readers will still enjoy holding a book in their hands. It’s balancing act to keep both arms of publishing flourishing. I’m glad I have the easy part to look after – letting my imagination run wild 😉
And thanks to Nicola of Love Books for a lovely review of Shattered Sky. She’s read an early review copy of the story and gave it the thumbs up!
