How Bright Is the Future of Ebooks?

At eBookhounds, our mission is to bring you bestselling free and discounted ebooks everyday.  But, are we taking something too much for granted?  Are books another area where technology will progress to the detriment of the printed word?  Put another way, are print books the next Discman?  


Our answer--probably not.  That begs the question, why not?




"Oh, your book is not available in print?"  That is the response you will get from potential purchasers of your ebook if you don't also have a print copy.  We have seen sales in print books slow down due to the proliferation of ebooks, but that does not mean we have seen the reputational impact of having your book in print too.  You can consider it this way.  Readers who have not gone through the arduous process of writing their own ebook often think it's easy to do.  It's digital, it's a file, you can basically just write a Word document and then upload that to Amazon and start selling ebooks.  For better or worse, as humans we see a finished product and our first thought is, "Yeah, that looks finished and well done, must have been pretty easy."  How many times have you seen a professional do something and thought it looked easy to do, until you did it yourself?


On the other hand, ebook readers still assume that it is much more difficult to get your book published in print.  That takes a publisher, an editor, and some sort of blessing from the writing gods to have let you get that far (i.e. print) in the first place.  They can hold your book in their hands, if they so wish.  And, the ability to hold something tangible, even if a reader does not take you up on it, is a powerful part of your reputation and prestige.


Shouldn't We Be Saying Ebooks Will Rule the World--Soon?


As our name implies, we are obviously focused on bringing you ebook deals, not deals on printed books.  (Who knows, maybe that will change in the future, but we are remaining singular in our focus at this point).  However, when an author promotes their free or discounted ebook on our website, a potential reader that travels through our website to the retailer of their choice is still presented with two options at that retailer--ebook or print.  This means that even if you think you are simply promoting your ebook through our website, that's not right.  You're promoting the printed version of your book, as well as your own reputation.  


The advice, in a nutshell?  Have a printed version of your book.  It may sell less.  Heck, it may not sell at all.  But, it gives you a cache that is well worth the effort of putting your story into print.


And...That's a Wrap


The demand for ebooks has obviously grown tremendously, particulary in the last five to seven years.  However, we don't believe that a printed book will ever be removed from the psyche of humans.  Have a print version of your ebook available for sale to make sure that you engender credibility amongst your potential purchasers.

Mia James almost had it all… 

At 30, she was a successful photographer with the craziest, but most loyal friends in the world and a wonderful life in a picturesque village. The only thing missing was the husband and a brood of kids. Love happens when you least expect it, her mom always said. 

An appointment to show her photography portfolio brought her front and center with Jack Barnes, a gorgeous, successful, Manhattan businessman. Mia was smitten and they married less than a year later. Unfortunately, the marital bliss she craved never showed up. 

Jack, the controlling, absentee husband had a secret. Someone else was occupying his mind and bed. A chance sighting revealed the real Jack with his mystery woman. 

Payback was definitely in order and way overdue. With a little help from her friends and a lot of Merlot, Mia was on a mission to take Jack down. 
Hilarious speed bumps, hiccups and crazy calamities along the way, turned her ridiculous plot into unexpected friendships and a possible chance at real love. 


Test of Magnitude (Click to Download at Amazon)


Welcome to the Tora star system, home of the spectacular Cardinal-4 space station overlooking Amulen and Banor, twin worlds that share the same orbit. One visit and you'll understand why this station is the pinnacle of Torian achievement and a wonder of the Erobian Sphere.

Unfortunately, your timing isn't great. Many centuries of peace and prosperity are on the verge of collapsing for members of the Erob coalition as signs of the first interstellar wars loom. The half-breeds tell us it is because we are now forsaking the ancient law, and have thus allowed an evil infection to begin spreading through the galaxy. But those Erob half-breeds have always been a little over-dramatic, haven't they?

Brandon Foss, an unhappily married Virginian in his early thirties, awakes from a strange dream to discover he has been abducted from Earth and kept in cryonic preservation on Amulen for two decades. One other resuscitated human is with him, a real knucklehead who almost seems as alien to Brandon as their reptilian captors. A friendship of convenience forms as the two Earthlings soon become unwittingly intertwined in Torian politics and military affairs--at a time, it turns out, when the Torians desperately need just such intertwining.

This full-length space-adventure novel has been professionally edited and specially formatted for all Kindle devices (including the latest Torian lightpads). We promise a smooth and enjoyable electronic reading experience, complete with a click-able table of contents. Download it today and embark upon your own personal test of magnitude.
