Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
If you’ve been holding out for the ebook edition of Town Father, you can stake your claim right now by pre-ordering. It’ll set you back $2.99 and you’ll have to wait for 28 days or so, but it’s worth the wait.
Alternatively, you could just pop for the paperback right now and have it in your hot little hands in a couple of days.
To be honest, I’m right on the cusp of leaning back toward print books, which is ironic because indie publishing is so geared toward the ebook that there’s almost no way to market anything but. All the promotional sites focus on ebooks, especially for the Kindle, rendering it pretty much fruitless to hunt for inexpensive ways to get a paperback into the hands of eager readers. Let’s face it, the folks who subscribe to email lists of indie books are looking for cheap books — preferably free. They aren’t interested in ten-dollar paperbacks, even though that’s a reasonable price to pay for a physical book. Maybe they’ll keep their eyes peeled for a giveaway, but more than likely they’ll stick to their freebies on the lists and fill up their Kindles to capacity.
My bookshelves look like a time capsule these days, stuck in the late ’90s. My Nook and Kindle are crammed with all the more recent titles I’ve bought, but they’re invisible and I don’t think much about them anymore. Somehow that doesn’t seem good for books…
A lot of people have said to me, “I don’t read ebooks. I’m in love with real books.”
Take your pick!
The ebook delivers on December 8.
