FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


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


PHOENIX, AZ—MARCH 1st 2009

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.

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
