I hope to get back to the edits this weekend. This day turned into one of those "Let's download e-books from the Internet" days. (Legal ones, don't worry.) I downloaded copies of e-books I'd already purchased from my library at Fictionwise.com
. I also looked at e-books at Palm Digital Media (aka Peanut Press, a cooler name)
. And then I drifted by the Baen Free
, and all hope was lost. I downloaded some free stuff. Naturally, I ended up browsing the Webscription
stuff, where you can buy e-books cheaply (in groups or individually). But in my defense, "The Course of Empire"
sounds really interesting. And the beginning of P. N. Elrod's new fantasy novel, "The Adventures of Myhr,"
was funny. Oh, of course, I also visited Blackmask.com,
another great site for drawing me in with free books.
Here are some other sites for free e-books: Project Gutenberg
(of course), Horrormasters classics for Palm
, The On-Line Books Page
, and UVA's E-book Library for Microsoft Reader and Palm
If you like romance or paranormal and futuristic romance, some independent e-publishers include Hard Shell Word Factory
, New Concepts Publishing
, and Awe-Struck
(which also has a line of romance titles about disabled heroes and heroines -- look for books in the "ennoble series").
