My evolution to ebooks is just about complete
I never thought I'd think it, let alone say it.
I'm sold on e-books, in every sense.
While I sell fiction in both forms, I get far more satisfaction and sales from selling my series of ancient Egypt adventure thrillers in e-book form than in paperbacks.
Maybe I'm just over the dead-tree technology of paper publishing.
There's something alive and immediate about e-books that breathes new life into reading - and being read.
E-books are fresh - they avoid the glacial slowness of book publishing and literary agencies. E-books seem to me to be the perfect medium for capturing and sharing the quicksilver nature of ideas.
Yet, ironically, there is a permanence about e-books that paper, and even papyrus, could never achieve.
E-books don't go out of print, either. They are forever.
They don't yellow, fade, gather mildew, dust and eventually rot.
In fact there is some of the permanence about e-books that I admire in the ancient Egyptian civilization itself.
So for me it's the perfect way to bring ancient Egypt to life for my readers.
