Absolutewrite.com, a website devoted to helping aspiring writers become professional writers, will celebrate National Read an E-Book Week by giving away free e-books.
Writers who are looking for literary agents can pick up a copy of the "Agents! Agents! Agents!" e-book, and freelance writers can claim a copy of the "Writer's Online Guidelines" e-book.
E-books are the perfect solution to the avid book readerÂs universal problem: not having enough space to hold an increasingly expanding library. Downloaded e-books can easily fit onto a CD or a computerÂs hard drive, cost nothing to ship, and don't require a trip to the bookstore. Most e-books are cheaper than their paper counterparts.
Writers are also finding out that e-books are a great way to get noticed by top book publishers and film companies. Recently, romance author Jaid Black was "discovered" by an editor at Berkeley/Jove who read an e-book of Black's, and novelist Marty GallanterÂs e-book "A Little Lower Than the Angels" had its film rights optioned by production company Caldera/De Fanti.
Jenna Glatzer, editor-in-chief of AbsoluteWrite.com, is an avid e-book reader who believes that e-publishing has helped to level the playing field for new authors. Many writers who haven't been picked up by traditional print publishers have found fan bases by e-publishing.
National Read an E-Book Week runs from March 10 through March 16.
**Glatzer is available for interviews. She is the author of eight print books and three e-books.
