Back in 2014 when I working towards publishing The Rare Monkey with the Colourful Bottom as a physical book, I was also thinking very strongly about publishing it as an ebook.
And since then I’ve frequently been thinking about it…
There’s a long list of pros and cons surrounding making an ebook. It’s very exciting that ebooks are easier to promote and send to over seas customers, but on the flip side, there can be issues with formats and tech upgrading quickly.
After doing some recent research, I’ve decided that at this time I’m not going to be creating an ebook.
Well, for one big reason really and that’s that I still love that reading and looking at a physical book is an activity that takes a child away from looking at a screen.
Btw I love screens: I’m look at one right now, but as the internet, TV, apps and more require a screen, it’s nice that reading a good book doesn’t.
As with all things, my mind might change, but for now I’m happy with the above decision.
I’ve just ordered a load more physical copies of The Rare Monkey with the Colourful Bottom. This is my third print run of this title, and as a tiny solo-publisher, I’m pretty chuffed about that.
Thank you for reading and stay Rare Monkeys.
