Firstly, if you had a note about ‘On being your own accountant’ that will appear next Monday. Smashwords were incredibly late kicking off Read an EBook Week this year, and I was only able to enter my books for it this morning!
What is Read an EBook Week? Well, it is a global initiative to encourage reading, all ages and all formats, but specifically of course to promote ebooks. You may not realise this, but more third world kids can access ebooks than they can printed books. Why? Because of the push to connect villages with a communal mobile phone, and increasingly those are able to use apps for reading. The push to get computers into rural schools is another aspect. Donate your old computers and phones to charity and who knows who you might help to reach out to the global community.
But of course, for people like me, it gives me another chance to promote my ebooks to a wider audience. My free ebooks on Smashwords are free anyway, of course, so you can get the short story Dylan’s Yuletide Journey, and the BookElves Anthology Vol. 1 free anyway, for now. You can also get the first in the Princelings of the East series permafree.
To encourage you to read on, the Princelings and the Pirates and the Princelings and the Lost City are both FREE with the coupon code RW100.
Books 4 to 6 are on offer at 50% off ($2 instead of $3.99) with the code RAE50. That’s
So if you feel like stocking up, you can get six Princelings books plus 7 short stories (Dylan’s adventure is included in the BookElves anthology) for $6. Seems like a bargain to me!
Offers end 7th March, 11.59 pm Pacific time. What are you waiting for?

Thanks for sharing your books! I came across the Read and eBook Week thing on Smashwords yesterday. I admit that I’ve been greedy; I’ve bought so many books. Just going through the categories on SW, there are so many books that look good. Many have great blurbs. It’s great to have an opportunity to get these books! I certainly won’t run out of anything soon. 🙂
Thanks, Catherine. I know what you mean. I suspect I have ebooks I got on REBW back in 2012 that I still haven’t read :O
How come I didn’t know this was even coming? You’d think Smashwords would want authors to know so we can participate and spread the word! Not sure I have time to act on it now (except to go shopping).
My blog ate my original lengthy reply to you, so I’ll just say I was watching for it all week, gave up and rescheduled the accounting post (on Saturday), then found they’d started it this morning. It’s a very poor show. Someone didnt have their eye on the ball. They blogged it on Saturday, which is very bad. There’s some Goodreads stuff about it according to Google.
There’s plenty of time to get involved, Rebecca. It doesnt take a moment to put your books in… and just a few more to blog about it 🙂
