"Read an E-Book Week"

What E-Book are you going to read in celebration of "Read an E-book Week"? From March 6 to March 12, readers are encouraged to read a digital book and learn more about E-Publishing.

I first learned about E-Books when I started reading Dear Author, a blog site dedicated to book reviews and industry news. In fact, it was a review on Dear Author that led me to read my first E-Book. That was James Buchanan's Personal Demons (MLR Press), a book I've read twice and highly recommend, along with the Taking the Odds series.

Not only has E-Publishing introduced me to new authors, it's given me a chance to be published. Death Sword is strictly digital in format. I tend to write short novels and since many E-Publishers accept shorter works, this gives me the opportunity to submit my work. (I'm also glad to see opportunities with the small presses, given the publishing industry is in such a flux.)

Anyway, hope you find an E-Book to read this week. There are many available from publishers like Lyrical Press, Carina Press, Samhain, Ellora's Cave, Etopia Press, MuseItUp Publishing and more. And you can read erotica, paranormal romance, fantasy, science fiction, mystery, horror, etc.  

As for me, I have a few ideas of what's going on my TBR list. :-)

Happy reading!

Hehe... I read far too many ebooks on the train and some of them I'm very glad are "anonymous" on my Reader 'cos... ja... they're quite steamy!
