Year’s End Among Titles for OverDrive Halloween Promotion

“Below are the titles that will be submitted to OverDrive for their various promotions in October.  All titles will be discounted 25% where allowed (some are $0.99 already, which is the lowest OverDrive will go).  The sale will be available to all libraries as well as most retailers who source through OverDrive.”  So began today’s email from Untreed Reads Publications editor Jay Hartmen.  And so, to the chase, a scroll down revealed that one of the titles is YEAR’S END:  14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR, Untreed Reads’s 2012 New Eve anthology with (ahem) its leadoff story by me, “Appointment in Time.”

As for OverDrive, their website explains:  “OverDrive.com is designed to help you get digital eBooks, audiobooks, videos, and music quickly and easily.  You can search for a title, then immediately see if it’s available to borrow, for free, from your library.”  That is, from the library’s point of view, they’re a distribution service that libraries can buy ebooks, etc., from, whereas from the reader’s point of view it’s a service through which one can borrow these titles directly through the OverDrive site.  Moreover, they presumably highlight selected titles for seasonal or other occasional reasons — and, according to Untreed Reads’s list, YEAR’S END will be part of a “Halloween/Spooky Stories” October promotion.
