Officer, Blob, Ebook

From Birmingham Words:

Local writer Jon Hartless has just had his second novel, An Officer and a Blob, appear at Double Dragon Publishing, an online publisher specialising in science fiction and fantasy. The site offers each of its books in a variety of digital download formats, and has recently added a paperback option to its range of titles, made possible by the advances in print-on-demand technology.

The paperback is actually supplied by who seem to be cornering the POD market. A hard copy of Jon’s novel will set you back £10.46 while a download from Double Dragon is $5.99 (about £3).

The market for ebooks is small right now but will explode in the next few years as technology catches up so aspiring novelists would do well to examine how outfits like Double Dragon operate even if they’re not writing sci-fi.
