Three space opera ebooks are available this month for $2.99/each from Tor.

One of them (The Price of the Stars) is one of our good children, still earning money for us after all this time.

(Our apologies to readers overseas who -- due to restrictions on the publishing end over which we have no control -- aren't able to legally purchase these ebooks.)

Hmm. Good promotion (though I already own the ebook of Price, I now have two other books to look at, oh darn), though I wonder if they're going to see a lower-than-expected takeup. With Tor saying that we probably won't be able to redownload old purchases without DRM once they make the changeover, I can understand others being hesitant to make Tor purchases until their new policies are in place. (I know I certainly am!)

The impending changeover will probably have an effect, to be sure. But we're in this for the long haul, and with any luck the people who don't buy DRM books on principle will come back around and buy DRM-free copies later at full price.

I applaud Tor's decision to go DRM-free, of course. DRM does nothing to stop the pirates, and only serves to make legitimate customers resentful.
