NOTE: This is an updated list from an earlier post. Feel free to pass it along to friends and family who are having trouble getting enough to read digitally right now.
These days, with so many books available as ebooks, it’s hard to get your books to readers and hard for readers to find the kind of books they like to read.
One answer for both is services which offer free or cheap/on-sale ebooks via their site, newsletters, or emails. These services give an author a chance to showcase a series or a group of similar novels by offering a book on sale or giving away the first book or a short story/novella in the series, and for readers to find series they like.
I’ve compiled a list of these services as well as an article for authors on the subject. The first link after each services is for readers, the second for authors who are interested in using these services.
