The Epub Ebook as Multimedia Art

When I visited The London Book Fair in 2005 to promote the first Peatmore Press novel “Cogrill’s Mill” as an ebook no one wanted to know.  Admittedly, it was only available in pdf format so could only be viewed in personal computers, palm readers and some mobile phones but no one there seemed to recognise its commercial potential.  Now that has all changed.  There are a multitude of ebooks as mainstream publishers seek to launch their books in paper and ebook formats.  There are a variety of mobile platforms on which to view the electronic versions and at the 2013 London Book Fair there was a large area, known as “The Digital Zone”, devoted almost entirely to the ebook.

The ability of smart phones, tablets, ebook readers, PCs and mp3 players to delight our audio-visual senses is astounding.  To exploit this new environment Peatmore Press has launched a new epub version of its short story collection, “Crime and Passion”.  Mixed with the text is a movie trailer, two audio files and a photographic image at the start of each story.  It can only be viewed in its entirety on devices that can play mp3 and mp4 files, otherwise buyers are advised to obtain the pdf and Kindle editions, and is available as a download from http://peatmore.com/crimeandpassion.htm
