Stanza is becoming a powerhouse on the iPhone. Recently we’ve seen them ad eReader support, and a full Fictionwise.com powered store…now Random House has partnered with Lexcycle, the makers of the software, to give away select titles from their library.
Authors participating in the promotion are Alan Furst, Julie Garwood, Charlie Huston, David Liss, Laurie Notaro, Arthur Phillips and Simon Rich. They are all offering ebooks up from their back catalog, and Random House is hoping it will lead to sales of their current releases.
You can find these books in a special Random House section of Stanza, which is a free application available for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Personally, I’ve tried to read a long form book on the iPhone – and I have yet to be able to get into it. Having said that – many people are clearly loving the ebook experience on the iPhone, and is quickly giving the Amazon Kindle and Sony eReaders something to worry about.
