The Rotten eBook

My novel Rotten In Denmark is now available as an eBook for Kindle and all other platforms.

Publishing it in this format was more of a project than you might imagine. This was because the publishers only had the files of the original 1999 print version on floppy disks. (Younger readers, click here.)

Yes, we think this is the age of total communication but the rapid evolution of file formats, storage methods and related technologies means that in twenty years time all this stuff we’re liking and tweeting and posting will be trapped in a sort of digital locked-in syndrome. Thank the binary lord for that, you might think. Still, you wouldn’t want to be a historian. Just try reading your emails from the 1990s.

Anyway, my excursion into the digital dark ages gave me a very good excuse to read the book again. I expected to hate it but I didn’t. In fact, I’m still absurdly proud of this novel. And it has fired me up to try to actually finish another one. Ho hum.

Meanwhile, you can buy Rotten In Denmark, the ebook, in all formats here from the publishers smith/doorstop. It will also available on Amazon.

If you’re not sure, there’s also an extract on smith/doorstop’s site. (Follow this link and then click on the grandly-titled rubric ‘The Work’.)

Three advantages of buying the ebook:

  • Nobody can see you’re reading it
  • It’s £1.04 cheaper than the print version
  • I can’t insist on signing the eBook version.
