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.
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?
