The staff members of GoodEReader.com have worked throughout the summer lining up authors who are willing to provide their digitally published works to the readers, often free of charge, for the Ebook of the Week feature. Announcements have been made over the course of the last two months detailing how readers can get ebooks for their favorite devices, as well as find out a little bit about some great authors at the same time.
While the goal is to provide a weekly free ebook, occasionally an ebook will be offered for a drastically reduced price, which ensures that the readers not only come away with a great variety of genres and authors, but that the authors who are excited about being featured on GoodEReader.com bring their best work. All of the authors whose featured ebooks will still retain a nominal cost have agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds from those sales to charities that will be specified on this site.
The first ebook that we are proud to feature is the Indie Book Collective’s Dollars and Sense: A Definitive Guide to Self-Publishing. This book has been mentioned a few times in our coverage of indie publishing, but now that the founding members of the IBC have become sought-after speakers at conferences and events pertaining to digital and self-publishing, we felt it might be very poignant to launch the Ebook of the Week feature with a great reference tool for anyone who is considering self-publishing his ebook.
Rachel Thompson, one-third of the Indie Book Collective along with co-founders Amber Scott and Carolyn McCray, spoke to GoodEReader.com in an interview about the book and the purpose of the IBC. A download of that interview is available here.
In order to receive a free digital edition of the IBC’s guide, enter the following code at the Dollars and Sense sale page on Smashwords.com: SF99T. The IBC was generous enough to extend the deadline on using this code due to the upcoming Labor Day weekend, so the code will not expire until September 7th.
