25th October '11 - Disruption With My Books.

To the inconvenience of customers I've had to make my books only available in the printed form rather than ebook downloads. This doesn't effect the free stories I put online just the novels that I sell.

The problem arose when my publishers decided to make all the books they sell available on the Apple iBookstore, whether the writer wanted them to or not. Then once they done that they would remove the existing ebook from sale.

This not only made it inconvenient for the customer as they would have to sign up with the iBookstore but also for the author who would have to in effect create two versions of their novel.

A lot of the writers I've chatted with have changed publisher because of this but I'm going to stick with them for the time being, as most people prefer printed books over ebooks anyway.
