Read an E-Book Week

Read an E-book Week is March 4 – 10, 2007.

The week is designed to celebrate e-books and to educate the public about them.

If you’ve read this blog for any time at all, you probably know I’m a big advocate of e-books. My novel Stroke of Luck is published as an e-book, and I’ve been excited about e-books ever since an e-publisher wanted my story of a disabled heroine. Traditional publishers told me no one wanted to read a romance with a handicapped heroine.

That’s when I learned that e-publishers are open to story lines and characters that don’t fit the marketing plan of major publishers. Not only do I enjoy great stories in e-books, but I also find them easier to read because I can adjust the font for my poor eyesight. And they generally cost less than print books, so I can read more books for the same amount of money.

Some publishers are offering a free e-book with every e-book ordered during Read an E-book Week. Visit the Supporters page to find out where to find these deals.

And on the e-books page of my Web site, you’ll find links to e-book directories and publishers, free e-books, and more information about e-books and e-publishing. If  you’re already a fan of e-books, share with other during this week. And if you’ve never read an e-book, maybe Read an E-book Week is the perfect time to try one.
