Budget-Friendly Fantasy Ebook Choices from Overdrive for Libraries

After many years of being denied access to library ebook distribution, I'm very happy to now have my full fiction catalog available through Overdrive to over 20,000 libraries.

I've heard that large publishing companies charge high prices to license their digital content to libraries. If that's the case, then I have great value to offer libraries. In general my titles are discounted for libraries by at least 20 percent off the retail list price. Overdrive, however, requires a minimum price of $1.99.

Now that Overdrive is stocking self published indie authors like me you can give your patrons better access to the full breadth of the fiction marketplace as represented by ebooks. 

Indie authors enjoy a significant share of the ebook reader retail market according to data analysis published by Hugh Howey. The July 2014 Author Earnings Report shows that 25 percent of the Amazon Kindle bestsellers are published by indie authors. Furthermore, on the same report analyzing Kindle ebook sales, indie authors represented 31 percent of daily unit sales volume.

Now through Overdrive you can choose from many fine independent authors from around the world.

My humble contributions to this thriving literary scene are priced at Overdrive as follows:

Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I

The Goddess Queen: The Rys Chronicles Book II

Judgment Rising: The Rys Chronicles Book III

The Borderlands of Power: The Rys Chronicles Book IV

Rys Rising: Book I

Savage Storm: Rys Rising Book II

New Religion: Rys Rising Book III

Love Lost: Rys Rising Book IV

Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale

View the titles in your Overdrive Marketplace account.

Librarians can find these titles by searching within the self publishing section of their Marketplace accounts at Overdrive for "Tracy Falbe" or individual book titles. All titles will be shown as published by Smashwords.

Your patrons who rely on the library to indulge their love of fantasy series will enjoy this fantasy collection.

My novels have received 5-star reviews at several retail outlets including Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Apple iBooks.

Here's an example of a 5-star review for Rys Rising: Book I

 And here's another one for the same novel from the Nook store:
