|Eyes on the prize|
It can only be a matter of time before some bright spark with a penchant for well-written fiction and deep pockets, sets up a competition to find the best independently published eBook of the year...And since that other well-known competition has changed its name from the Booker Prize to the Man Booker Prize, we're sure they won't mind if the digital upstart calls itself the "eBooker Prize". On second thoughts they would probably be straight on the telephone to their legal team!
Being serious for a moment, it's about time authors of eBooks had their own prize specifically for the this new and vibrant branch of publishing. Perhaps a group of benevolent UK eBook Publishers could get together to fund the prize. The Electronic Book Company would be more than happy to participate in such a worthwhile event...and to be honest, the resulting publicity would not exactly be unwelcome. Watch this space! Home Page
