I recently discovered that, for at least several years, the e-book edition of ‘Technobiophilia: Nature and Cyberspace’ has been wrongly priced at around £40-£50! It came out in 2013 and I have no idea of exactly how long this has been going on but it certainly explains my poor royalty statements. Nobody wants to spend fifty quid on an e-book.
I’m regularly interviewed about technobiophilia and quite a number of PhD and Masters students are using my research, so I know the work is getting about, but I doubt many people have been able to afford to buy the e-book.
The discovery came about because I contacted my editor at Bloomsbury Academic, who investigated and discovered it was a database error. They quickly corrected it, of course, so now you can buy the e-book for just £12.86 – still a bit pricey but fairly standard for an academic title. (The paperback is £25.10.)
Anyway, it’s fixed now, so if you’ve been yearning to learn more about my eight years of research and ground-breaking conclusions about the many ways in which our online lives interact with the natural world – please do buy it!
[And if you’ve already read it, I’d be most grateful for an Amazon review. Thanks in advance.]
