I like to release books in both print versions and digital versions.
As a friend of mine recently told me, some of us like to hold a book with pages to turn in our hands. The electronic version is fine, especially if you’re strapped for space or want to read on the bus on the way to work, without the bulk of a hard copy printed book, but paper books have been around since the Egyptians discovered that papyrus could be made into a scribable surface, and that goes back over 5,000 years. Yes – the ink on those books is still readable. Chinese manuscripts have been found that are even older, up to 9,000 years.
Hard copy literally began with clay tablets and cuneiform writing. Archaeological digs have found clay tablets that record contracts, inventories, stories and diplomatic correspondence.
In other words, hard copy is as old as human civilization and is equally important. And as one lover of graphic novels once told me, ‘Digital books are fine, but you can’t get them autographed.’
So here’s to my newest release, ‘Honk! If You Work For an Asshole”, which is my look at supervisors, the good, the bad, and the extremely ugly, and how to tell the difference. Both the Kindle and print versions are at Amazon, and if you’re part of Kindle Prime, you can check them out of the Kindle Lending Library for free.
Thanks for stopping by!
