Apple has launched its third annual Discover New (Big Five) Authors promotion, featuring ebooks from publishers like HarperCollins, Pan Macmillan, and Hachette.
The promotion runs over the course of what Americans would call the
Labor Day Memorial Day weekend, and it lets iBooks users download the ebooks for free from today through Monday (30 May).
The four titles featured in the campaign include Dare Me by Megan Abbott (Pan Macmillan), Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal (Quercus), Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer (HarperCollins), and Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary (Headline).
The Bookseller reported that all the authors are “the ones to watch” and “rising stars as writers and novelists,” according to Apple, but since they are all also published by the Big Five we have to wonder just who wants us to watch them.
The Discover New Authors available to iBooks customers in Germany, France, Austria, Ireland, the UK, and Switzerland for the Bank Holiday promotion. Apple has been running this promotion since at least 2014.
