Print editions are no healthier than digital editions

In recently published research by the Media Convergence Research Unit of Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, the scepticism of readers towards eBooks was examined.  The study used two sample groups, young readers and elderly readers, asking them to read texts on paper, a Kindle and an iPad. The subjective response of most participants tested in the study was that they preferred reading from paper, finding it more comfortable.  But the study found no actual difference in reading performance between the printed page and an e-reader, “dispelling the widespread misconception that reading from a screen has negative effects” explained Professor Dr. Stephan Füssel who instigated the study.

Alnpete Press eBook sales

It’s been an exciting time for us and our authors here at Alnpete Press, with the move into the world of eBooks being a great success.

   Alison Buck’s spooky horror novel Abiding Evil quickly went to the top of both Amazon UK and Kobobooks horror bestseller lists, it has also been No. 1 in Ghosts on both sites for ages.

   Sales in the UK, as well as the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere have been strong on Kobobooks, but sales outside the UK have been negligible on Amazon. There is a distinct and very palpable antagonism to small independent publishers / authors, especially if they are non-US, (to the point of extreme rudeness in many cases) on the amazon.com customer threads which is clearly reflected in the sales figures.

   So, thank you to our new readers who are discovering our titles for the first time in electronic format. Tell your friends ;-)
