Or...it's Read an eBook Week
March 7 through 13, 2010, is Read an eBook Week, and those of us who have novels released in eBook format (and print) are out reminding the world to give an eBook a try. This isn't just because we want you to buy our books (although, yes, that's important for the numbers our publishers see), but it's also because eBooks kill even less trees than the print on demand (POD) format. I think the makers of electronic devices probably have a hand in this week as well...but you'd have to dig to find their involvement. Oh! Wait! One of them is sponsoring it! Mwuahahaha.
Okay, all kidding aside (and you can tell THIS isn't the official marketing stuff the "Read an eBook Week" site sent out), ArcheBooks Publishing HAS released Choices Meant for Gods and Choices Meant for Kings on Kindle in addition to hardcover, so I'm pretty stoked to support the non-dead-tree format of books as well as the traditional, normal, I-love-to-hold-a-book-smelling-book-in-my-hand format of books. So I encourage all ya'll to read an eBook this week, whether you already have one of those mega-expensive devices or not.
How can this be done?!?!?
Most eBooks are available in a format that can be read on your computer screen as well as your smart phone as well as your handy dandy eReader device of the hour. Including mine! You can either purchase the fabulous downloadable pdfs of Sandy Lender's novels direct from the publisher or at Amazon. But here's the thing: This is not an ad for Fantasy Author Sandy Lender. This is an ad for all eBooks everywhere. There's a Kindle store on Amazon. Most publishers have their authors' books available for pdf download. B&N has a nook section. Check this stuff out!
Read an eBook this week!
Crazed sermon over.
