Geek Tragedies now in Print and Digital!

Today’s the launch of Geek Tragedies (you can click here for details) and according to Flipside head honcho Anthony de Luna I am indeed the first Filipino author to do simultaneous print and digital releases. I don’t believe that the two have to compete, and I believe that they have distinctly different markets. So publishers who penalize e-book readers by delaying releases have it wrong, I think. And this wonderful collaboration between author and publishers (UP Press and Flipside) will bode well for readers the world over. I hope that this launch and the way I’m doing it will serve as a spearhead to getting more of our books out there in the world, into the hands of more readers. Thanks too to Jenny Ortuoste for the lengthy mention in her column in the Manila Standard Today, and her general support of various modes of publishing for the sake of readers. Also, following the merchandising push of The Kobayashi Maru of Love, we’re coming out with shirts! Read more of this post
