In the next few days Sourcebooks, an Ill. based publisher, is going to be launching a new subscription based ebook club. The club is going to be called Discover a New Love, and it's going to offer members the ability to download ebooks and converse with the authors.
The WSJ is reporting that the club will launch tomorrow (the site is live now), and I have to say that it looks like a very good deal. Sourcebooks is going to be charging $10 for a 6 month subscription. Members will be able to download 1 of 4 titles offered each month. What's more, the current plan is to offer DRM-free downloads. The ebook selection is going to be drawn from Sourcebooks' library of 150 romance writers, and club members will also get the chance to buy additional titles at a discount.
And the club is going to offer more than just ebook discounts. Members will also get the chance for exclusive chats with authors, editors, cover artists, and others involved in crafting books at Sourcebooks. There will also be other member-only offers of exclusive content from Sourcebooks' upcoming titles as well as contests, special offers, and give aways.
Sourcebooks was founded in 1987 by Dominique Raccah. They currently publish books and ebooks in several genres, including romance, fantasy, as well as illustrated public domain titles.
