Peds, Other Untreed Reads Titles to be on Nokbok

So what’s Nokbok (pronounced Knock-Bock)?  Let Untreed Reads Publishing Editor-in-Chief Jay Hartman esplain:

“Nokbok is a new player in the all-you-can-read market that already has a few other significant players such as Scribd (who we’ve been with for years) and Oyster (who we are working with right now to get establish a contract).  The idea is that for $4.95 a month, a customer can read as many books Pedsas they’d like.  The author gets paid depending on how much of their book was read.  For people who opt for the free account, they will NOT have access to anything other than public domain works.”  He goes on to point out that, like with a lending library, readers don’t own the books they read — they can’t download or print them, for instance — and that all titles in Untreed Reads’s current catalog will be added, with Nokbok scheduled to launch by the end of the first quarter of this year.

Relevant to me, these will include my near-future “if this goes on” novelette PEDS, Christmas-time horror short story I’M DREAMING OF A. . . ., steampunk-mystery story VANITAS, and the lead story, “Appointment in Time,” in Untreed Reads’s 2012 anthology YEAR’S END:  14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR.  For more on Untreed Reads and my titles with them press here, followed by pressing the title of interest, while for those who just wish to borrow, not buy, more information on how Nokbok works can be found by pressing here.

  1. Interesting concept, Jim! Hope this works out well for getting your marvelous, often cunning works read more widely.

  2. Hey Marge, thanks for the compliment. It will be interesting to see if there’s a bump on royalty statements a couple of quarters down the line.
