Orbit, an up and coming science fiction publisher with branches in the United States and the United Kingdom, has announced that it will be offering $1.00 ebooks from some of their authors on a monthly basis. This is certainly worth checking out, Kindle and ebook fans!
Orbit – in partnership with a number of major ebook vendors – has launched an innovative promotion offering one ebook for sale each month at the introductory price of $1.00. At the end of the promotional month the cost of the ebook returns to its standard price, and a new book will be offered at the discount. Details of the promotion are at www.onedollarorbit.com.
The promotion will include The Way of Shadows by debut author Brent Weeks, Empress by Karen Miller, as well as classics of science fiction such as Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks.
VP and Publisher of Orbit Tim Holman says, “We believe that this promotion will give readers a great opportunity to discover new writers. Most of our consumer marketing has an online focus, and the digital marketplace offers the perfect platform for price-promotion initiatives such as this. It will be very exciting to see how effective it is. The range of titles chosen for the promotion includes a mix of frontlist and backlist, from both new and established authors, and we will be monitoring the performance of every title very closely.”
