March 2nd to 8th is Read an EBook Week and once again I’m offering some of my ebooks free and at ridiculous discounts.
Yes, I’d like you to read and review my books, and encourage others to buy them. But REBW is not just about selling books. It’s about raising awareness of the role ebooks can play in literacy and connectedness globally.
It may surprise you to know that the fastest growing use of ereaders is in Africa and Asia – specifically in poor communities that cannot afford books. As western technophiles upgrade from one eReader to another, second hand ones find their way to communities who can make very good use of them. The key partner in this is the non-profit organisation Worldreader. You can read more about the work they are doing, and their new programme in conjunction with the UN Refugee Agency in this article.
It’s not too late to join in REBW. If you’re on Smashwords you can sign up for their sitewide promotion from your account pages. If you aren’t you can offer your books free for a week and promote them on all the free sites. Check out the REBW Facebook page for more ideas.
To make the best of the promotion opportunity, though, you might like to read this article from the Digital Reader after last year’s event. Food for thought and good tips!
Want to get my books during Read an EBook Week? See the Princelings of the East series here and click through to get the discount code for each of them. They’re either free or 50% off during REBW.
PS If you’ve got an old kindle that you no longer need, you can donate it to the Worldreader program. Check the REBW facebook page for details.

Thanks for the nudge, Jemima–I just signed my books up, and sent my blog readers here to read more about it.
Great! Your books are a steal at any price 🙂

What a lovely idea to donate your old Kindle. Mine has been loved almost to death (it’s taped over the cracks!), and I’ve been thinking about getting a new one. So I can plan on donating!
What a good excuse to get a new Kindle, Noelle. I’d persuade someone to give you a nice unbirthday present just so you can give your old one to charity!
I just picked up your books!
Also, I just just just just JUST got my Kindle (like last month) so nooooo I’m not giving it away. 😛
I’m glad you got them before the end of the week. It seemed to go so fast this year! I hope you enjoy them 🙂
Special congratulations to the person who got the Trilogy just 1 minute 14 seconds before the end of Read an E-Book Week!
