Writers' Showcase -- Books by contemporary authors on CD ROM
THE BIG IDEA
-- At the same time as trying to make classic works readily available and easily accessible for a ridiculously low price, I'm experimenting to determine if the marketplace is ready for contemporary (copyrighted) works in this same format (unencrypted text on CD ROM). If so, this would be a great way to showcase new/talented writers and to keep the works of experienced current authors readily available at a low price. I'm starting with my own works and works of other authors whom I know and respect. If I can generate significant sales of those CDs, I will expand, offering royalty-based publication to better-known authors as well.
If you like this idea and want to encourage the evolution of the publishing industry in this direction, please buy these CDs and spread the word about them.
Intended for use with Windows and Linux PCs and recent Macs (OS X), the plain text files on these CDs are readable with your browser or word processor. Some items are also provided in html format, making it possible to include links to
