Innovation: kindle eBook goes interactive.

Posted: April 12, 2011 in Uncategorized


Declan Conner, is the author of ‘Lunch Break Thrillers’. Twelve not so short crime/mystery thrillers. His stories cover popular subjects such as, edating frauds, identity theft, political intrigue, home foreclosure, lost airline baggage rage and climate disaster etc, across a variety of thriller genre styles.

Lunch Break Thrillers, without the links has already enjoyed success, reaching the bestseller list for its category in the UK and sandwiched between the likes of Steven King and Agatha Christie.

Declan has made two of his short stories interactive by adding links to articles that sparked the ideas for the stories and to enhance the readers experience. As an example, his controversial story, ‘Where there is a will, there is a war’, puts forward a fictitious scenario for the real reason behind the war being waged by America and Britain in Afghanistan. The links add some ring of truth to the story to leave the reader with plenty to ponder about in the dark corners of their minds, long after the last page is turned.

Whilst the use of links in ‘How to’, eBooks is common, Declan hopes that others will follow his lead, by making use of simple eBook technology to enhance the reading experience for adult fiction eBooks and which will set them apart from printed books. This is different to the interactive features developed to harness the computer characteristics of eReaders and designed to appeal to those who enjoy computer games. These features are at the cutting edge of technology and are particularly well suited to children’s books.

His book is available with both American and UK English translations, at an introductory offer of 99c in America and 70p in the UK.
