Adverts in ebooks. Why I am putting adverts in my ebook.

I think judiciously placed advertisements relevant to the content of the ebook can enhance the reader's experience. Obviously this must be done with taste and flair. Imagine, for instance, if you were reading an ebook about a chocolate factory. When you reached the end, you would probably quite fancy a bit of chocolate. Imagine your surprise and pleasure, therefore, to find placed elegantly before you an opportunity to place an order for, say, Fishblanket's Luxurious Chocolate Fancies! Delivered to your door within an hour by helicopter, and at the cost of a mere one thousand guineas. Would that not be a fitting finale to your reading experience. Who could resist?

In just such a spirit of maximising reader pleasure I have partnered with several esteemed online purveyors of hats, and have added adverts (or hatverts, as I call them) for their wares to the end of my children's ebook Happy Hat Day.

Here they are if you are interested in such things.
(I am quite willing to disclose that I earn one shilling for every one thousand hats sold. Ker-ching!)

  1. Thanks Mr Hawksey! I loved this book, and so did my toddler. The adverts were my favorite part. :) Keep up the great work, and keep offering freebies. :)
