I do not have a kindle or any other type of e book reader, as a landscape gardener I would not have a lot of time to use it on any commutes, and at home I would much rather be sitting with something more tangible, something that can sit on my book shelf and be returned to. I completely appreciate you as an author wanting to and needing to maximize profits and control over your work, but are there any plans for new paper backs?
Or even audio books, I do listen to lots of books during the day at work. Good luck and I hope the writing continues to go well. Have a good xmas and ill look forward to some new books in the new year. So… I bought all of the stories previously on Amazon… and now I buy them again?
