Read an E-Book Week Welcomes Multi-genre Author Rae Lori to Celebrate Digital Reading


Read an E-Book Week (March 8-14th) welcomes writer Rae Lori, multi-genre and multi-published author, as a partner of the event for e-books. As an advocate of ebooks continuing the promotion of reading, Rae Lori will help promote the event and will offer up her out-of-print illustrated science fantasy novella The Eye of Alloria as a free digital read. With news of the Stanza reader for iPhone joining the event with a catalogue of free Epub format reads, the book will be available directly to Stanza users.

“I’m so thrilled to see the rise of e-books and reading with new technology,” author Rae Lori says. “The new technology with digital publishing going hand in hand with print on demand publishing will allow older works and out-of-print works to be made available to the public for years to come. I’m glad to see the publishing industry making use of this because it not only benefits readers but writers as well. Hopefully as the years go on we’ll see some more refining and offerings from the technology.”

In recent years, e-books have been on the rise reaching as far as 77% in a year’s time and 400% in the education division alone. Mainstream publishers such as Harlequin Enterprises have been quick to the change offering up free reads for yearly promotions as well as digital releases of their print books a month before the print release. Tor has followed this model during the summer of 2007 offering up backlists of their popular authors from Emma Bull, Cory Doctorow, John Scalzi and Elizabeth Bear to name a few.

Read an E-Book continues this tradition, partnering with authors, E-reader companies and publishers with an effort to embrace the digital technology. Current and classic reads will be available alongside bestsellers in the latest e-readers formats direct from the website.

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
