The digital digest editors/publishers we spoke to prefer printed copies, but a healthy portion of their readers prefer to read on-screen. Jennifer Landels reports Pulp Literature leverages every sales channel. “Along with print, we make html, PDF, EPUB and mobi versions, all of which are available when you buy the digital issue,” says Landels. “It took us a while to find the right eBook formatter, so the EPUB and mobi versions of issues 1–3 are not quite what we wanted. However, by issue 4 we found Booknook.biz and they are absolutely fabulous: fast, accurate, and great people to work with. They use the InDesign files supplied by our designer and the ebooks look as close to the print version as possible given the format. However, I still feel that to appreciate the graphics, e-subscribers would do well to check out the html or PDF versions as well as downloading the ebooks for their readers.”
Pulp Literature #15 is available now.
