I know, the title almost sounds like I’m saying my books are on overdrive!

Blasting down the digital highway.  Well, in a very important way, they are. 🙂

Smashwords has inked a deal with OverDrive to distribute its participating authors’ ebooks to libraries nationwide.

Actually, more than that.

The blog post linked to above says, “OverDrive powers the ebook procurement and checkout systems for 20,000 public libraries around the world, including 90% of US public libraries.”

OverDrive itself has a nice site with an incredible amount of information.

I signed up on their site and it’s amazing.


My Titles on OverDrive for Libraries

I’ve elected to place all my (currently) 60 titles in this new program.

Most of them have shipped already, and hopefully will start appearing in OverDrive’s search soon.

If you are a library user, would like one of my titles at your library, please let your library know.

Libraries, though typically free, are of course not for everyone.

Sometimes there are waiting lists, return dates, and even simple lack of convenience.

So I see this as a supplement and complement to the subscription services I’m also participating in, via Scribd and Oyster.

And all my titles are offered to the major direct online ebook retailers: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and others.

My Authors Page has links to each site my titles are offered to.



OverDrive is apparently available across a huge variety of platforms and devices.
