US science fiction publisher Orbit is currently offering an e-book for sale each month for $1.00. The scheme will include The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks, Empress by Karen Miller, as well as Use of Weapons by Iain M. Banks.
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.
Orbit publisher Tim Holman told SFcrowsnest.com, “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.”
