Ebook pioneer Baen Books is making its ebooks available through Reader Store from Sony for the first time beginning August 9, 2013.
Baen Books has sold its own ebooks for over 13 years at its retail site, Baenebooks.com. These ebooks have always been totally free of digital rights restrictions.
The move to third-party distribution is relatively new territory for Baen, which has built a name for itself in the ebook arena with an innovative e-Advanced Reading Copy program and limited time monthly discount bundles. These programs will continue, according to Toni Weisskopf, Baen Publisher.
“We are excited for the chance to work with Sony. Now it will be easier than ever to download your favorite Weber, Ringo, or Correia ebook to your ebook reader,” says Toni Weisskopf, Baen Publisher. “The DRM-free model will not change, and you can be sure we will always maintain our famous ebook pioneering spirit and customer-first orientation.”
