My approach to ebooks

A very boring title for a post, I’m sure you’ll agree, but this is something I think is worth repeating ahead of the release of AUTUMN: DAWN next week.

My approach with books I’ve released through Infected Books is this – if you buy the paperback or hardcover, you should be able to access an eBook version for free. On the rare occasion I buy a CD, the first thing I’ll typically do is rip it to my computer so I can listen to it however/whenever I like. To my mind, it should be no different when you buy a book. You’ve paid for the story and should be able to access it where you want.

Turn to the back of most Infected Books print releases and you’ll see a page like this:

Go to the page, fill in the form, and an ePub or Kindle version of the book will be sent to you. If you buy an Infected Books title directly from www.infectedbooks.co.uk, you’ll get a download code automatically sent to you as soon as your order is placed.

I just think it’s the right thing to do. Also, so that folks have access to Infected Books titles regardless of the eBook provider they prefer, most of my independently published books are now available from Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, B&N and Amazon.

I know you’ve probably heard all this before, but AUTUMN: DAWN is the biggest IB release for a number of years so I wanted to share again.

Good news, bad news, and good news

Good news – all the orders which have so far been placed for signed first edition hardcover copies of ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING have now been dispatched.

Bad news – following a couple of orders received this afternoon, we’re now out of stock of the new book. Here’s a photo of the current state of the shelves I showed you in my last post. Note the (almost) total absence of ONE OF US…

Good news – you can still order signed copies of the book direct from www.infectedbooks.co.uk. A new order will be placed with the publisher in the coming days, and all back orders will be dispatched as soon as they arrive. You can also order (unsigned) copies of the book from AmazonBarnes & NobleThe Book DepositoryIndiebound and all other good bookstores ahead of the official release in just over a week’s time.

And finally, in further good news – we’ve updated www.infectedbooks.co.uk and Amazon Pay is now accepted as an alternative to Paypal.
