Harlequin has invested quite a bit of money in its e-ventures and with its declining profits reported last month, perhaps its digital ventures can help right the ship. A reader can now get instant gratification for the April books that Harlequin is offering in e format. This definitely one-ups Simon & Schuster’s one or two book early digital release. These early releases could help generate word of mouth prior to the on sale date of the physical releases.
As an ebook lover, myself, I love the early release program.
