Story Bundle: DRM-freie eBooks zu einem Preis, den der Kunde festlegt

Schon länger bekannt sind die Humble Indie Bundles aus dem Computerspielbereich. Die Idee: Ein Paket von Spielen wird zum Download zur Verfügung gestellt. Die Nutzer bestimmen, was ihnen das Paket wert ist – und auch, wie die Aufteilung der Einnahmen vorgenommen wird. Ein Teil geht an die Entwickler, ein Teil an die Plattform und einer wird wohltätigen Zwecken zugeführt. Aktuell läuft das Humble Music Bundle und hat bereits knapp 50.000 Pakete verkauft:

Mit Story Bundle werden nun nach demselben Prinzip DRM-freie eBooks an den Käufer gebracht. Wahlweise können 10% des Kaufbetrags an Mighty Writers oder Trees for the Future gespendet werden. Eine spannende Vertriebsmöglichkeit mit integriertem Marketing. Mehr Details auf der Website des Projekts.

Pay what you want! You choose how much you want to pay for these five awesome indie books. (Click on each book above to check them out!) You decide how much of your purchase goes to the author and how much goes to help keep StoryBundle running. If your purchase price beats $7, you get two bonus books—Unstable Prototypes and Missing Signals—the sequels to Bypass Gemini and John Gone, respectively. This way you can rest assured in the knowledge that you already have the sequels to these wonderful titles without having to pay full price later.

Zero DRM. There’s no DRM on any of our books. None. Why? For one, we don’t believe DRM actually stops people from sharing what they want to share. Second, and most importantly, we don’t believe we should be treating our customers as criminals. So go ahead and put these on your tablets, Kindles and smartphones, but if a friend wants to read the bundle, have them buy one for themselves. Or better yet, buy one as a gift! Support indie authors!

Support nonprofits. Best of all, you can also give a portion of the proceeds from each bundle to charity! For this bundle we’re featuring both MightyWriters and Trees for the Future. To learn more about these charities and those they help, click the link below.

Easy delivery. It’s super convenient to get these ebooks onto your reader of choice—just download and sync. Better yet, if you have a Kindle or Kindle-enabled tablet or smartphone, we can send the books directly to your device. No computer required.

Ein Gedanke zu „Story Bundle: DRM-freie eBooks zu einem Preis, den der Kunde festlegt“

  1. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
    to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
