Read An E-Book Week ~ March 5 – 11


Read An E-book Week

No re-blog today because “The 9th annual Smashwords Read an Ebook Week promotion kicks off this Sunday…”

And, from the announcement on the Smashwords blog:

“Thousands of Smashwords authors, publishers and readers participate in this global ebook celebration featuring thousands of FREE and deep-discounted ebooks. “

“When the promotion goes live on Sunday, visit the promotional catalog at https://www.smashwords.com/books/category/1/newest/1 and be sure to check back often because thousands of new books will join the promotion during the week.”

“The special home page catalog enables readers to browse by coupon discount and filter by category, bestseller status, word count and multiple other factors.  We also note the title’s coupon on individual book pages to encourage browsers to become customers.”

Smashwords author Rita Toews founded this event 12 years ago and there’s an interview with Rita and Mark Coker (founder of Smashwords) about the origin of this yearly event.

And, if you use social media:

The official hashtags for the promotion are #Smashwords and #ebookweek17

Read An E-Book Week Starts Today !


Yes, I’m still “officially” on sabbatical from this blog as I work on my next book… Notes from An Alien

But, I got a notification from Smashwords that today is the beginning of their Read An E-Book Week.

It’s a great time to load-up your e-reader with some free e-books!

I’ve yet to publish with Smashwords but my next book will be featured there, as well as fresh editions of two of my other books.

However, you can still get three of my books for free, right here on this blog.

Notes from An Alien

Is Your Soul In Here?

And, Strange Fantasies—but, this one is still in separate posts (unless you want to spend $.99 at Amazon :-)

Oh, the image for this post is a word cloud of Notes from An Alien—95 words that show up at least three times in the book—(the bigger the word the more times it was used)

O.K., back to working on my next book………

Get Free E-books during Read An E-book Week :-)


“Read an Ebook Week kicks off this Sunday.  Smashwords is again sponsoring the event for the sixth year running. Read An E-book Weel 2014

“Thousands of Smashwords authors will offer free and deep-discounted titles starting Sunday March 2 and running through Saturday March 8.”

Readers—Visit the catalog page of participating titles — “nearly 40,000 multi-format books regularly priced at free, and thousands more that are free or deep-discounted for one week only.” [the page will be active Sunday, March 2nd]

Or, check out “Apple iBooks – For iPhone, iPad and iTunes users, a click on this link brings up a great selection of FREE ebooks at the Apple iBooks store [you need to have iTunes installed for that link to work], organized by categories such as Featured Titles, Fiction & Literature, Non-Fiction, Children & Teens, Romance, Mysteries & Thrillers, Sci-fi & Fantasy, Biographies & Memoirs, Arts & Entertainment and more.” 

Or, “Barnes & Noble – A neat and well-organized collection of thousands of free ebooks organized primarily around Fiction, Romance, Sci-Fi and Fantasy, and Mystery.”

And, “Diesel Ebook Store – Offers over 20,000 books (many of them from Smashwords) in the epub format, but they’re not well-organized and cannot be browsed by subject category.”

All quotes above are from the Smashwords Blog:-)
