[Leak/Rumour] Windows Store to sell ebooks (again)?

08:27 AM by tomsem in E-Book General | News

Speculation is that the addition of ePub support to Edge browser (still only in preview build I think?) has paved the way for this.

Wonder if Edge offers (or will offer) offline mode for this content (as Kindle Cloud Reader does). I am not willing to install preview build of Windows 10 to find out, however. I just removed preview build from my Windows 10 Phone as half the apps I wanted to use stopped working...

NV Access has announced availability of new enhanced accessibility software for PCs, NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) that works in conjunction with Kindle for PC version 1.19. You can read the details and find a link to download this new software on this page.

Warning: The new Kindle for PC version will download books in KFX format to enable "enhanced typesetting" as needed for the accessibility software. This is incompatible with existing DRM removal tools.

Kobo Is Going To Purchase Tolino Back End Assets

03:27 AM by PeterT in E-Book General | News

I know... Not the most reliable source
http://goodereader.com/blog/electron...-tolino-assets

Rakuten Kobo is in the process of purchasing a majority stake in Tolino. It is very likely that Kobo wants to get access their digital bookstore, which has thousands of German language e-books. It is also said that Kobo will get access to the software which powers the Tolino line of e-readers and backend software that powers the cloud sync platform

Dasung releasing eReader in 2017

03:03 AM by SnowRipple in E-Book General | News

Just saw this and I though I will share:

https://twitter.com/dasungtech?lang=en

2200x1650 resolution sounds great, never heard about an e-ink screen with a higher one!

Mysterious function... Based on Dasung past products I would bet on some kind of port to connect it to pc to make it work as a second screen. To me it seems like a natural evolution of this device. It would broaden their customer base massively. With this function they would beat all 13.3'' e-reader competition out of the water.

If you add a better refresh rate on top of it - sounds like an ultimate e-reader devices for me and my friends.

All Romance eBooks / OmniLit to close on 12/31/16

05:18 AM by AnemicOak in E-Book General | News

From the site(s) main page...

It is with a great sadness that we announce the closing of All Romance eBooks, LLC. For the first year since opening in 2006, we will be posting a loss. Despite efforts to maintain and grow our market share, sales and profits have declined. The financial forecast for 2017 isn't hopeful. We've accepted that there is not a viable path forward.

All Romance has always been a labor of love. Over the years we've developed wonderful relationships with the vendors we've worked with, the publishers whose content it's been our pleasure to sell, the authors who supported us, and the customers who it's been our honor to serve. On midnight, December 31 our sites will go dark. Between now and then, we encourage consumers finalize any transactions, download purchases, and back up libraries.

If you directly publish content for sale through our platform or All Romance has acted as your publisher via our Publishing in Partnership program, you should be in receipt of an email from us with additional information. If not, please contact us at info@allromanceebooks.com.

EDIT: Some publishers are offering to honor pre-orders (which ARe pre-charged for) directly...

Dreamspinner Press

W/ @allromance closure, if you preordered Dreamspinner title, forward receipt and we'll honor via our store contactATdreamspinnerpressDOTcom

Interlude Press

NineStar Press

It seems ARe is not refunding preorders. Send the confirmation email to Raevyn@ninestarpress.com. I will make sure you receive the book(s).

LT3 Press

please also indicate the format you'd like: PDF, mobi, epub, or All Formats

we're going to make this easy for ppl: if you pre-ordered an LT3 title on ARe, forward the receipt to service@lessthanthreepress.com
