I was happy to see our first e-book sale came through and it was for 15 Serial Killers. The ebook version hasn’t been out that long. The jury is still out on ebooks for me. It’s my impression that most people prefer physical books but a story collection like 15 Serial Killers is the ideal ebook because of it’s quick pace, short length and creative formatting.

There also seems to be a lot of advance interest in 100 Jolts. We’ve already had an order from a library and some advance orders from places other than Shocklines which usually does the most pre-order business. I don’t know how many copies have been pre-ordered at Shocklines but I expect quite a few.
