As I was getting ready to order Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning, I immediately get a notice that Contentlink, Random House’s arm for digital content will be closing at the end of the month and that I’d better download and archive it-quick. Otherwise, lose it. Forever.
This sucks and I find myself highly annoyed. I emailed Jane and she got a response back from them pretty quick, stating what we already know: yes, they’re closing. The burning question for me would be: why? There were several ebooks that Contentlink had available that wasn’t available anywhere else. In some instances, they were cheaper than Fictionwise. It was convenient to download books from them the day they were released and not a day later. I am so sorry to see them go. Oh, well. Somebody tell me that this book sucked and I won’t feel so bad about not getting it. Added note: I’ve never read Moning before in my life but the book sounds really, really good.
