Operation Ebook Drop

The Pict is now available as an ebook (on Smashwords, for Kindle, Sony eReader, Mobi, and other ebook readers), FREE to deployed military personnel, through Operation Ebook Drop.

Operation Ebook Drop provides free ebooks to deployed military personnel by e-mailing them coupons, upon request, for free ebooks from Smashwords. The service member then "purchases" the book at Smashwords, enters the coupon for 100% off, and downloads the book for use on the ereader of their choice.

Operation Ebook Drop was started by Ed C. Patterson, a prolific independent author, who partnered with Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords, to build this effort into a resounding success. With close to 300 independently published authors participating, the program offers a wide variety of reading material.

Please help spread the word to deployed soldiers who would like to take advantage of this valuable program. For details on how to contact Operation Ebook Drop, go here, and scroll down to the How to Participate heading.

My many thanks to Ed and Mark for providing a way for independent authors to do a little something to support our troops, who are working so very hard, and so courageously to serve their country.
