As some of my regular readers may know, I try to offer discounts on my books during the holidays. Kindle is offering its authors this cool countdown program. Basically RUSH Books One & Two will be on sale for one week. They will both cost $0.99 the first day and go up incrementally by one dollar each day. So the closer you buy to day one the better the savings! Pretty cool right? I think so.
The chart below shows exactly how it works. Luckily my UK readers can also participate in the program. My apologies to any of my other international readers, I have no control over who can access these deals. Believe me if I could offer it to everyone I certainly would.
As for my readers who prefer paperback, I have some good and bad news for you. The bad news is I had to raise the price of the paperback, as the cost to distribute it has gone up. I still wouldn’t have raised the cost if I could have avoided it, but I won’t get any royalties if I don’t so my hands are tied. The good news, however, is that I can control my discounts (to a point) so I will also be offering discounts on the paperbacks of not only RUSH Books One & Two, but Interoffice Fraternization as well. So if anyone so chooses they can get all three of my paperbacks for a discounted price. More details on this and reminders will be posted closer to the start date.
**All discounts will begin December 15, 2013.
