A Merry Merry and Happy Happy to all and sundry. As I’ve mentioned, all five of my initial ebook collections are part of KDP Select for the time being, and that’s because I want to experiment with some of Select’s special promotional deals.
So, a Holiday Sale.
Starting today and for the rest of this month (this year!) all my titles are discounted as part of Amazon’s countdown deals. In the US my books are half price until the 28th, then the price bumps up to 2.99 until the 31st, and then they’re back at full price. In the UK the sale starts on Boxing Day, since the Brits are always going on and on about it as if the rest of the world has any idea what they are talking about (actually it’s because I was a little late in getting the deals set up, and the timezone difference bumped me into the next day in the UK), where my books will be 99 pence for the rest of 2013.
It’s entirely possible that this is the last time these books will be on sale in this way, since I will eventually take them out of Select and make them available to a wider market.
I’ve gotten a few really great reviews so far on a couple of my fantasy collections:
“This collection is good value and head and shoulders above an awful lot of fantasy. It stands easily alongside many of the classics and it’s impressive how the stories are so varied in setting and yet each seems perfectly fitted to its setting. Quality stuff.” on The Last of His Kind and Other Stories
“Again the author uses strong, illusionary narrative to tour the reader through fantastic realms, most featuring a prominent sword. A “ward” in the fantasy genre refers to an iconic symbol that protects against evil magic; Ward the author emerges as the opposite, his books delivering magical, dark adventure.” on Mightier than the Sword and Other Stories
