In a first for a big-five publisher, HarperCollins has begun selling some ebooks directly to consumers, beginning with titles by C.S. Lewis, the author of the classic Narnia series. The ebooks are available through two new websites, Narnia.com and CSLewis.com, as DRM-protected EPUB files. Each book in the Narnia series is $6.99. Accenture Digital Services is providing the backend.
