Pop the champagne corks! As of Tuesday, December 8th. 2009, The Poet & The Murderer is available as an e-book on Kindle ( @ http://tinyurl.com/yhyvmbf). It’s my latest venture into epublishing, which I think is going to be the new Yukon for writers ( a recent survey suggested that by 2015 25% of the UK will have ereaders in one form or another) and I want to stake my claim!
A lot of people feel very protective of the idea of the book qua book – and I am one of them: books are the only material possessions I have ever really valued – but I think the negativity towards Kindle etc. is misplaced. This is just another way of reading – and for my 23 year old son’s generation, the first in five hundred years, I have always maintained, for whom the LCD screen not the book was the primary point of reference, it may prove to be a means of enticing them back to reading. I’ll stop there …
The P&M is also available on Smashwords @ http://tinyurl.com/yewque7
Happy reading !
