Brendan Mays is a journalist and author, and An Act of Violence is his first novel. It has been written and stylized especially for smartphones and the e-format.
According to Amazon.com, ebooks now outsell print books in the online store, not including free copies which would further separate the market. In the UK, Kindle books outsell hardcover books two to one.
“Ebooks are suited to the modern reader. It’s not always comfortable for me to carry a book through the week, but I like to read on the train and bus. I wanted something quick and easy to read on my phone, which was one of the reasons for writing my current work,” says Brendan Mays.
You can read the book on your phone using the free Amazon Kindle app, which means it‘s easy to carry a book in your pocket. “Let’s face it, apps are easy, fun and great when you want to kill time, but sometimes you want a little bit more than playing Angry Birds or other games,” says Mays.
