And Now On To Baen Webscriptions!

A fine day, book-wise. My whole slate of E-Reads titles appeared today on Baen Webscriptions, along with two Rudy Rucker titles, as part of the E-Reads June package (11 books for 60 bucks). They are, of course, available individually as well. If you missed the Fictionwise sale (now over), this is a great segue: they're on sale at Webscriptions for $6 each, for a limited time. And at Baen the books are always multiformat and DRM-free.

Meanwhile, I got word from E-Reads that the books at Fictionwise have been selling strong out of the gate, which is good news indeed. Before this big push and the free downloads program, my ebooks sold hardly at all. Now, we seem to be turning that around, and a whole new audience really does seem to be discovering my work, and picking up my backlist, as well.

Finally, I've gotten several really encouraging and heartfelt emails from readers who have done just that—found my freebies and gone on to read the others. (Some have made generous donations, as well.) It's just so encouraging and restorative to have folks finding and bring the older books back to life!

I think Eternity's End was my favorite.

It's certainly a favorite of mine. But then...they're my kids! They're all my favorites!

Well. Just Bought Pangalor from webscriptions. I was too slow at grabbing the even better e-reads deal, not that $6 is too much.

That's my first ever pay in advance e-book. First couple were all freebies. So there :)

One word, seven letters and I manage to misspell Panglor in my previous comment. Oh well. Good book, nice to have it back in print. Or bits. Reading Dragons in the Stars now, also from webscriptions.

Glad to hear that more people are reading your books!

Thanks for going through the hard work of getting your older books out in various ebook formats.

Pleased to see your work with Webscriptions, and availed myself of the offer. My 'library' has become large enough that I am forced to migrate to 'electronic' media for storage reasons if nothing else (I am anticipating my children will make the transition to science fiction and fantasy, if only because that is whats available at home.

Would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for your work.
