Need I say more? :-)
I'm a digitally published author. All of us here at Write Club are published with Lyrical Press and other electronic publishers.
Why did we choose this instead of agents and the traditional publishing route? I can't speak for others but my stories don't meet agents' word length requirements. Digital publishing gives me places to submit my short stories and short novels. (I could also self publish, but that's a topic for another time.)
The first e-book I read was Personal Demons by James Buchanan. I read it on my PC. Now I have Nook and Kindle reading apps on my iPod, tablet, PC, and laptop, plus I have a Kindle.
If you've never read an e-book before, here's a perfect opportunity to try one. Don't have a Kindle or Nook? You can download a free app from either Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Worried about paying for a book you might not like? Check out free reads or download free samples. Many authors are giving away free or discounted reads during Read an E-Book Week.

Finally, to help celebrate Read an E-Book Week, one lucky commenter will win a Smashwords copy of Bites - Ten Tales of Vampires. Just leave a comment by midnight, March 10. To learn more about Bites, click here. The anthology is also available on Kindle.
Happy e-book reading!
