Operation eBook Drop

Rate: 3 Flag
Model for Writer with Shrubbery - Mixed media by James Stephens
 
On the occasion of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," I'd like to acknowledge the work of author and Army veteran Edward C. Patterson, who started Operation eBook Drop, which provides free eBooks for service members around the world.
 
Among the free eBooks are Edward Patterson's many gay-themed novels--which can now be read by service members in a new atmosphere of openness in the military.
 
The books include donations from over 500 indie authors.  The book categories for free eBooks are Adventure, Anthology, Drama, Gay/Lesbian, General, Historical, Humor, Literary, Military Books, Mystery, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Romance, Sci Fi/Fantasy, Suspense/Thriller, Urban Fantasy, Western, and Young Adult.

Operation eBook drop began when Ed offered to email a soldier all 13 of his ebooks, for free. The soldier gratefully accepted.  Following the chance encounter with the soldier, Ed, himself an Army veteran, queried other indie authors, asking if they too would be willing to offer their ebooks for free to troops deployed overseas.

 

Collaborating with Mark Coker of Smashwords, Ed and some of the authors started using Smashwords as the platform for distributing the ebooks to soldiers. Using the Smashwords Coupon Generator feature, authors are emailing 100%-off coupons to the soldiers.

 

With this service, deployed service members can register at Operation eBook to receive free eBooks.

 

--David Greene is the author of Unmentionables: A Novel, a gay "Gone With the Wind" for everyone.  Service members, please see the listing for Unmentionables at Operation eBook Drop.

Hello David

I found you via a review for your book on here. I participate in Operation Ebook Drop, too. It's great, isn't it?
