Winner of the Nook Color

nook colorWe had a great list of recommendations last week for backlist books. I am hopeful that PubIt can take the list and get the attention of the author or publisher who holds the rights to those books and let us have the ability to buy those books in digital format.

The winner of the nook color is

Susan K

“I would love to get Nora Roberts’ earlier books in ebook format, especially the MacGregors series. 

A newer author would be Rachel Gibson. Some of her earlier books (like See Jane Score and Simply Irresistible) don’t seem to be available in ebook format.

I think $3-$5 would be a good price point for older titles, depending on whether they were category romances or not. SEP’s Fancy Pants, Honey Moon and Hot Shot were $5.99 each at B&N, which seemed reasonable to me. But after reading all the news about publishers lately, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were priced at more like $6.99 or $7.99 each.” <\blockquote>

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
