The Book for a Buck Thread - 'I'd buy that for a dollar ...'
« on: January 09, 2011, 03:43:15 am »
Hi everyone,

I know there are similar threads to this but some of them have been running many months. I was thinking this may give more recently published writers the opportunity to make their work visible to the community. Obviously, it is for books at a bargain price of a dollar or less.

May I be so bold as to start with mine 'The Time Hunters' at 99 cents.

Becky is a typical thirteen year old girl. She likes Facebook, gossiping and plenty of sleep. So when she and her brother Joe are invited to stay with their 'loony' Uncle Percy at his stately home, she thinks itll be the worst summer ever. What she doesn't realise is that Bowen Hall is also home to a baby Triceratops, two Sabre-tooth tigers and the mythic hero, Will Scarlet...

'The Time Hunters' is a thrilling adventure that takes Becky, Joe, Uncle Percy and Will on a quest through time to find the legendary Golden Fleece.

    Sure. I'll list mine.

    Pray for Reign is really just another Anne Boleyn story. It's historical fiction while all my other novels are litfic, so I list it at .99 because the writing is soooo different

    Hi,

    'Feed The Enemy' is set during a single day, and is about terrorism, and how the constant drip-feed of terrorism threats in the media affects our lives, minds and relationships. It's also, funnily enough, about marriage. The setting is meant to be an alternative version of the present day.

    If you like short stories, I'd appreciate any feedback.

    cheers
    James

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the opportunity to list my books.

    The Birth of the Peacekeepers is book 1 of my peacekeeper series. Amazon has been discounting it to $0.99 for ages. The link to this book is in my signature.


    Adventures in Reading is a compilation of short stories, the novella The North Room. It also contains an essay titled Coping With Breast Cancer, which relates the experience from the author's perspective as his wife battled the disease.

    http://www.amazon.com/Adventures-In-Reading-ebook/dp/B002ZCY9KI/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=digital-text&qid=1294577459&sr=1-9


    The information contained within the book The Ultimate in Women's Self-Defense can save your life, even if you never do a single exercise outlined in the book. That book is also linked in my signature. The many photographs make it easy to understand the concepts being taught.

    Have a great day,
    Ricky

    I'll jump in. Here's the tag line for my late middle reader/early young adult fantasy:

    13-year old uber-archer Sam thought she'd give anything for her Olympic dream... until the Obyri spirit vampires demanded her soul.

    It has a brand new cover!

    And is getting good reviews on Amazon.com and Goodreads. If you're interested, the cover in my signature leads to its Amazon page. Thanks!

    I never do this and it may be the wrong thread. Ages ago I got the the 1st peacekeeper book by Ricky Sides. Now this is not my normal genre, but read it anyway. Very well written and since, I have purchased the rest of his peacekeeper seres. Guess my point is, thanks to all you indie authors for making some of your work available for a nominal fee. I feel like there are many others others like me me out here who will take a chance at a lower fee and then will buy your other work if we have enjoyed it. Mr. Sides is about the fourth or fifth author I have personally done this with. In closing, thank you for your offerings and because of this I have really branched out me reading genres. In the next few days I will be trying some of your offerings found here!

    I usually write in the thriller and mystery genres but Round Robin is a romantic comedy. Lots of laughs, lots of heart, characters you'll remember for a long time. Because Round Robin is so different from my usual novels, I'm offering it for .99 for the rest of January.

    Thank you skeeterman10 for sharing this. It always helps to see that our work matters, and making out books affordable brings the desired result - more people sample them, expand their reading tastes, find something new they enjoy. I can say the same thing as a reader: because of the $0.99-$2.99 deal prices, I have tried many books and genres I probably wouldn't have bought otherwise.

    Getting back to the topic, The Journey, book 1 of my fantasy trilogy, is $0.99:



    The Journey begins the story of Jecosan, a young blacksmith's apprentice visited by a supernatural messenger and sent on a mission to prevent a war between two powerful kingdoms.

    Together with Detective Phil Dawson, Brodie Wade -- a psychic detective -- must summon all of his will to go head-to-head with a spiritual force known as The Truth to solve the latest string of gruesome murders. It appears that Dominick Fredrickton -- the Midnight Killer -- has returned from the grave. Can they stop Death before he is unleashed from eternal bonds?

    It is a paranormal mystery/thriller for just $0.99

    Bloated Goat is a humorous middle grade childrens book full of silly characters in crazy situations. Kinda like real life.

    Check it out if you appreciate light-hearted fantasy adventures in the same spirit as Shrek, Madagascar, and Alices Adventures in Wonderland.

    All formats are $.99 and ready and waiting at an e-book retailer near you. (If you want, I can twirl my cane and tip my top hat at you...)
