After a much heated debate with myself - I hate anything electronic - I have decided to embrace the 21st century.
As a reader I love 'real' books. I love the smell of them. I love the feel and weight of them in my hands. I love browsing through them in bookshops. I love the way I can flick through their pages. I love the ever-growing pile on the floor beside my bed. I love seeing all my 'friends' standing shoulder to shoulder on my many book shelves. If the day should ever come when books are extinct I will be bereft - probably mourn for the rest of my life.
As a new writer trying to enter the world of publishing I can see that ebooks is the way to go. I have decided to make an anthology of my short stories available to purchase and download electronically, probably through Amazon.
I am still going to try and get my novel published in book from, but while I am working on Bathory I decided I might as well take every opportunity open to me to get my work in print, to get my name 'out there'. Who knows, I might make a bit of money too.
It will mean having to put my wip to one side for a short time while I re-edit my stories, but I think in the long run it will - hopefully - help to establish me as a writer.
Let me know what you think.....
