What It Is
An exciting opportunity for our most loyal readers, the Dzanc Books eBook Club delivers a new eBook to its members on the first day of every month, with each selection coming from Dzanc and all of its imprints. In response to the proliferation of compatible devices and increased interest in eBook readings, Dzanc is committed to making it easier and less expensive for our readers to keep up on the newest releases from our catalog, and to delivering our titles in different formats for different kinds of readers.
Started in December 2010, selections so far have included acclaimed novels and short story collections by Robert Lopez, Roy Kesey, Stacey Levine, and Jeff Kass. Future books will be drawn from both our frontlist and the Dzanc Reprint Series, allowing us to deliver a wide variety of accomplished and emerging writers to our members.
Like all our eBooks, titles in the Dzanc eBook Club are delivered in DRM-free MOBI, ePub, and PDF formats, ensuring that club members will be able to enjoy it on their Kindle, iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, or whatever other platform they choose to use, as well as their PC and whatever newer devices might emerge in the near future.
The Dzanc eBook Club is one of the best ways to stay current with our newest books, and we truly believe it is the best value available to eBook writers anywhere. With subscriptions costing just five dollars per month or sixty dollars per year, members receive a 37% discount off the eBook list price of our selections, on top of knowing that they'll receive many of our new titles as soon as they're released, in the format best matching their choice of reading technology.
If you have any questions or concerns, please free feel to email Matt Bell at email@example.com.
How It Works
Option One: Get eleven books for $50, including five titles of your choice immediately upon signing up, plus a six-month subscription! This is a 43% savings compared to the cost of ordering the eleven titles individually in eBook form.
Upon signing up for the Dzanc eBooks Club, you will receive your five selected eBooks, plus the current month's selection within 48 hours. Then, on the first of each of the next five months, you will receive an email announcement containing a unique link, allowing you to immediately download and enjoy the month's book.
After the sixth month, members will be able to continue your subscription for just $5 per month, a savings of nearly 40% from the Dzanc eBooks cover price.
Option Two: If you already have some of the above bundled eBooks, you may also sign up for the eBook Club directly, starting with the current month's book, which will be delivered within 48 hours:
- $15: three-month subscription
- $30: six-month subscription
- $55: one-year subscription (includes one free month!)
On the first of each month, you will receive an email announcement containing a unique link, allowing you to immediately download and enjoy the month's book. With this option, you will be automatically resubscribed for the same period when you current subscription ends, unless you cancel through your Paypal account.
Our October 2013 Selection:
Happyland by J. Robert Lennon
Happy Masters is a megalomaniacal entrepreneur, a shrewd negotiator, and procurer of other people’s lives. And she is also the mastermind behind Happy Girls, the phenomenally successful doll company.
With a tenacious grasp on her life’s goals, Happy Masters sets out to make her dream town from scratch. As she sets her sights on Equinox, New York, Happy and her henchmen transform it into an amusement park of sorts—Happyland. What follows is anything but.
Happyland is an entertainingly sinister novel, which dares to question the ideals of small-town America and what happens when fulfilling your dreams becomes a nightmare.
