Free eBooks For Next State Legalizing Same Sex Marriage
Eros' challenge to the states: You give away the brides - we'll give away the eBooks
We're offering free eBooks to the entire population of the next state that legalizes same-sex marriage. See our Free eBooks for Free States Facebook page.
Why Are We Doing This?
State and federal marriage laws provide a safety net of legal and economic protections for married couples and their children — including the ability to visit your spouse in the hospital and to transfer property, which can mean being able to remain in the family home when your spouse has passed away. Unfortunately, in most states these protections do not extend to same sex couples. This must be corrected.
How Does It Work?
eBook Eros will reward citizens of the next state taking the courageous legal step granting marriage equality with a 72 hour free download event featuring donated works of fiction from socially conscious authors and publishers.
- Once same sex marriage is legalized, participants will be notified by email and have 72 hrs to download content from the "eBooks for Free States" catalogue.
- Participants must have registered as a customer with a credit card (no purchase required) at eBook Eros or Diesel eBooks prior to the state marriage laws passing.
- Participants credit card billing address must reflect residency within the state legalizing same sex marriage.
We're asking authors to either donate existing work or contribute new content to the drive. To preserve the integrity of the offer, the price of the donated work must be free exclusively to this program at the time of download (IE: We can't accept ebooks that are already free). This doesn't mean content must be restricted exclusively to the drive. For example, one can make an existing $8.00 ebook available to the drive and continue selling it for $8.00 throughout the promotion. If interested please let us know with a quick email including a description of what you'd like to contribute to "equality" at this domain.
- We anticipate the drive will enjoy a significant amount of gratis promotion once momentum has been established.
- The "Free eBooks for Free States" drive will be promoted internally on our site and blog and externally via a social media and PR campaign. There will be promotional newsletters and an "eBooks for Free States" section on our site featuring participating authors.
