YAY! Praise for Pass the Salt is rolling in! I received a few questions about the audiobook. I wasn't able to find an audiobook publisher that wanted to produce this so if you want an audiobook, buy the eBook or give me money to make the audiobook happen. The eBook is DRM free! https://compassivistepublishing.com/product/pass-the-salt/ @bookstodon

NI folk, you can get a LibrariesNI card for free online and get ebooks and audiobooks.

I’ve been using them for about a month and really enjoying it.

Decent catalog and unless the book is super popular, not long waits to loan out.

Do share, because this may not be news to you, but it was to me!

It’s been over a decade since Tor Books UK revealed that the decision to sell DRM-free didn’t negatively impact their business or cause an increase in unauthorised file sharing. Sadly, few traditional publishers have followed suit. I hope the rest of the industry takes the hint, sooner rather than later. The day ALL publishers stop infecting their ebooks with can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned. Defective by design is NOT a feature. @bookstodon
