GoodEReader.com has covered the latest in digital reading and tablet PC technology for a long time, and on occasion even publishes news about apps and operating systems that run the devices. These content announcements are aimed at making the devices our readers use even better. Now, we have the chance to bring you ebook content for your digital readers in the form of the Ebook of the Week.
Every week, we will profile another author, bring you an interview about the writer and the process by which the author chose to publish, along with some of the background on the book that most readers never get to access. By highlighting a different author and book each week, we will be sure to reach out across the platforms to our readers who use a wide variety of digital readers.
“I’ve published five novels, and have priced two of them at 99cents and the other three so far at $2.99. Despite zero marketing, one of those 99cent books sells routinely every day, with no promotions and no mention,” says writer Thea Atkinson, author of Formed of Clay. “I don’t even tell people it’s there, and yet it gets found and sells at least ten copies per day on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The reviews are spreading the word further. That’s the power of the price to me, that I can do nothing and still sell. Imagine what I could do if I spent time marketing it.”
Most of the ebooks will be free to our readers, courtesy of the author, but on occasion some of the authors will have the option to dramatically drop the price of their ebooks for our readers in order to support charitable causes through the sales that day, ensuring that we can bring you a wide range of both indie and traditionally published writers, as well as everything from a climbing-the-list bestseller to the work of an as-of-yet undiscovered writing talent. Ebook of the Week will cross many genres, reaching out to readers of a wide variety of tastes in reading material.
The Ebook of the Week is set to kick-off by September 1st, and further announcements will be made closer to launch.
