I could have sworn this came later in the year last year, because I thought I posted about it here, rather than at the other abominable site where I had my blog.
No matter! It’s Read an E-Book Week! It started yesterday, March 7th, and goes until March 13th. If you go to the E-Book Store on that website, you’ll see some of the participants who are offering books for the week. Some of the e-books are free, while others are, as the site says, “deeply discounted.” Many participants are offering a different free download each day during the week.
Many thanks to Graham Storrs, at whose website I discovered that it’s E-Book Week. And by the way, Graham’s got a science fiction e-book of his own on sale right now: TimeSplash. Go read an excerpt here, and then run, don’t walk, and buy a copy or two!
I’m very late with this, so my apologies. Some of my Twitter acquaintances are staging Free E-Day tomorrow, December 1st. This is a day to celebrate Indie Culture, featuring plenty of art that will be given away for free.
So you’ll find free images there, free music, and lots of free writing to download. Also check out the schedule of events, to find web chats, online workshops and other special things that will be going on. It’s a little more formalized in this Bookbuzzr Free E-day brochure.
Here’s where to go if you’re interested in these areas:
- free designs
- free music
- free writing
I have a feeling this isn’t going to be the last we see of this sort of thing, especially from Dan Holloway. He’s the one I wrote about in an earlier post, Can you write a peaceful novel with no conflict at all? He’s got a lot of different ideas about things, and is very busy exploring the concepts of self-publishing, independent writing, free writing, and so many other things.
Anyway, if you’re interested in any of these things, rush over there and partake of all the festivities.
