Read an ebook week

Somebody, somewhere, decided that this week was ebook week. Sounds good to me! The folks at ESPAN-RWA, a place you must check out if you are a writer for epubs or small press pubs, clued me in. They provided this link, which I believe shows the origins of the movement. Here, however, is the good stuff! That link will take you to a list of people who are participating, many of whom are offering free ebooks. For me, the best bet was to use my iphone and my Stanza app to download a huge number of free reads. I am not exagerating here, I’m still trying to download them all, there are so many.

This is a great opportunity to try out ebooks if you haven’t already. If your unsure about devices, you can visit my “What are ebooks” page for some links, or you can cheat and visit Dear Author, which is pretty much my advice at the end of the other page. Check the related posts listed at the top right of the Dear Author page, because they’ve done a whole series on the ever growing, ever changing technologies.

If you have any interest in the publishing side of ebooks, this series by Angela James is a must read. I was able to take part in an interactive version of the series and it was extremely beneficial and informative.

Lastly, of course, I can’t help but remind you that my very own ebook releases on Wednesday, right smack dab in the middle of ebook week. So, my humble suggestion, is that you take Monday and Tuesday to figure the whole deal out, choose a device and a format, and be ready for Wednesday! But, as I said, that’s just my advice 😀
