Something Exciting This Way Comes...

I'm always on the lookout for a new innovation. I'm digging epublishing, but I really enjoy getting in on new ideas.

My fellow Indelible and friend Cheri Lasota introduced me to the newest & coolest in e-book inventions: e-book cards from

What is an e-book card?

It's the size and weight of a credit card. One one side is my e-book cover, on the other there's a synopsis of the book, directions on how to claim your e-book, and a scratch off bar with a unique coupon code underneath. Just scratch it off, follow the directions, and you get a new e-book in .mobi (Kindle) or .epub (every other e-reader on the planet).

Wicked, right?

I really wanted to take advantage of this. How awesome would it be to be able to sell ebooks at author fairs while still giving the consumer something to hold in their hand? I can even sign the ebook cards too!

My only issue was deciding which book to make e-book cards for. They aren't cheap to produce and the minimum order was too high for me to even consider creating them for more than one e-book. After a day or so of wringing my hands, I realized how stupid I was. I didn't need to make an e-book card for ONE e-book. I could put the entire Cloud Prophet Trilogy (Anathema, Oubliette, Severed) on the card!

Now I'm able to sell ebooks anywhere I want. The entire trilogy goes for $7.99 on I'm able to sell you the card for only $6.00 (including tax and shipping & handling). If you want to buy one, you can order it on the top right of the sidebar. :D

I hope you're as excited as I am about this new product!!!!!


  1. Oh. My. Crumpets.
    That is awesome!!! Do you know if they're available in the UK too? I bet they're not - we don't get that much stuff xP - but if they were .... I'd be so ridiculously excited I might 'splode!

    1. Yep! I can ship them to the UK and Greenerside assures me you can download from there as well. ;)

  2. They looked great, Megg. They take up less table space and you can sign them. So cool. Such a great idea. Thank you for sharing.
