Good news for both authors and readers: the Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale starts now! From the author enrollment page:
“Here in the Northern hemisphere, it’s mid-summer. Readers everywhere are loading up their e-reading devices for summer beach reading and vacations. But what about the good people South of the equator, who are now in the middle of winter? They deserve to curl up in front of the fireplace and enjoy a good read too! That’s the story behind our Summer/Winter promotion…”
Readers can scope out the deals via the banner on the Smashwords homepage. There are both free and discounted books in multiple genres.
Remember that Smashwords is not just for self-publishing newbies! Many authors are reprinting their backlists there. I have bought eBooks myself fromt wo publishers on Smashwords who seem to specialize in this and can recommend Bev Editions (Morley Torgov, Howard Engel and others) and Crossroads Press (William Bayer, Ed Gorman and others) as starting points if you want to browse quality stuff.
