    Ebooks - The Past Becomes the Future ...

    I must admit I was an ebook doubter, but experience is making me rethink this.  As an experiment late last year I converted my first book Walking on Water to make it available on Kindle (only).  Since then, a book that was 14 years old and done all it was going to do for me has suddenly started to shift 50 copies a month. Okay, not a lot in financial terms, but better than nothing, and constant - for a one off effort I get a direct transfer into my bank account every month and can check the status of sales on a daily basis (if I was that sad, which sometimes I am).

    Emboldened, I have instructed the publisher of my novel Golden Daze to halve the price of the ebook to £1.90  as an experiment to see what happens.   I will report back ....

    Bin Collection

    Last month I wrote about my disappearing bin and the service I received from my local council in getting a replacement.  Looks like it was a case of be careful what you wish for, as today we received a leaflet from the self-same body informing us of changes to our refuse collection service, and boy have they gone to town.
