The latest update for the Nanowrimo winner What You Ask For has just been uploaded at Smashwords.com.
Check out my other books and enjoy a good read. Browse through Smashwords and sample some of the creative talent emerging from independent authors and publishers. Smashwords authors have featured in two recent Breakout book promotions on the Apple ibookstore, in Canada and Australia.
A radio broadcast made last December on the late night library, one of a pair focusing on independent authors, publishers and booksellers and featuring an interview with Mark Coker had interesting points about the spread of the ebook. With over a billion smartphones already out and more and more entry level phone having smart capabilities, each one is a bookstore in a bag or pocket.
The growth of eBook sales over the last few years has been largely centred on the USA, now the focus is shifting and the trends of ereader use and ebook sales are moving to a global level. The interview with Mark Coker can be heard at latenightlibrary.org and was originally broadcast in early December, the following interview with Oren Teicher CEO of the American Booksellers Association covers the agency pricing model and the growth of eBook sales through independent booksellers.
I think both interviews are worth listening to, downloadable as podcasts to be savoured and enjoyed again and again.
Very much like a good book.
