Lots of resource material on that site as well. E-author, Darrell Bain, has an article on e-books from an author's pov and there's an article for people in educational positions about e-books in schools.

Thanks for the heads up and the link, Alan.

But shouldn't you be heads down working on the next Ted and Jerry opus? I need another fix!

That is very gratifying to hear. I'm actually working on two books right now. Not the brightest plan in the world, but there you are. One of them is the next Ted and Jerry and the other is about a never-quite-made-it actor who comes back to live with his dad and becomes a high school teacher. Hilarity ensues as he has to figure out how to be a grown-up, especially how to choose amongst the women now in his life. If any of them will have him, that is.

Oh, and there's a dachshund.

Best,
Alan

Ah, and if I am not mistaken, domokos here is a primary mover and shaker behind this most worthy event. I still get a lot of blank stares when I mention my book is available as an ebook, so getting the word out about this revolution in publishing still has a ways to go. Read an EBook Week and other promotions like it can only help usher in the inevitable.

Looks good! I wonder if the Kobo code (Read2010) will be for a specific title or you can choose any.

It's for ANY title.

(added on March 7th)
I misinterpreted the Kobo coupon. Sorry for any inconvenience it caused. I've made the change on our REBW website.

My novel Chasing the Light will be FREE during read an E-Book Week for 2010. And if I manage to find the time, I'll collect my Denial of Service series into a single book and make that available as well... free, of course.
