My new ebook, and the merits of publishing digitally

Available now, everywhere! The Gospels of Rage ebook, delivered to anyone who can reach the internet! See http://www.scribbulations.com/gospelsofrage.cfm for your copy!


Years ago, when I worked as an intern for a small start-up company called eBay, we used to dream of a time when the internet could reach everyone, even those without a great deal of wealth and those distant from cities where technology was concentrated. I am pleased that this has become a reality, even if eBay cannot reap all the rewards, because they do not deliver digital goods, but real ones.

This dream was realized not so long ago with the smart phone and tablet computer. Now people connect to the cellular or satellite networks with a device that fits in the palm of your hand and costs less than a few hundred dollars. This is amazing, frankly, because now billions of digital goods and services are available to any of us instantaneously. Think then on how many more people you can reach with a digital book. Right now, you can get mine, and in fact any I ever write, for as long as the internet continues to provide. So enjoy this time of literature delivered into your hands via live streaming. It maybe only by virtue of this that people on the other side of the world will be able to read our work.
