Bargain Books April 2009
« on: March 31, 2009, 09:14:49 pm »
Here's all 3 Boyd Morrison together for easy clicking, presented once again because they are SO GOOD for such a reasonable price. For $4.17 total you get a KILLER set of books. They are stand alone so read them in whatever order you choose although I believe in order as presented is the best sequencing. Also, as you progress through them, you will be harder pressed to put them down before finishing the book. The last especially as you feel yourself moving minute by minute, second by second through the situation. These are 6 star books hindered by 5 stars being the most available in the rating system.

    Amazon caught their error and now Bobby's Trace is at $3.19 - but a good deal even at that price. Thanks all.


    For a limited time, the Novel - Bobby's Trace by Edward C. Pattersin is available at NINETY-NINE Cents.

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00150Z5HC


    Do ghosts mourn the living? Perry Chaplin is in mourning for his life partner, Bobby - a time of stress, notwithstanding. The more he drifts, the more he becomes unhinged until he's one room short of a rubber one. ""Get a grip, Perry."" So he takes his chances on a blind date, which further plunges him along the nightmare highway. He gets an unsought lesson in life-after-death that turns his bereavement into a horrific adventure. Come peek through Perry Chaplin's mysterious window. See what there is to see. Enter Our Lady of Perpetual Grace, where the holy water boils and the confessionals whisper. What lurks in the rectory's attic? What lies beneath the surface of life and death? What comes in Bobby's - in Bobby's trace? Do ghosts mourn the living? Perry Chaplin knows. Will you?

    Any readers who want to give it a review - I would be very appreciative!
    Thanks for letting me plug my book!  This is a wonderful thread!

    Carol, it sounds like a fun and interesting read! I downloaded it, but it may be a while before I read it as I have quite a few ahead of yours to read yet.
    Thanks for offering it at such a great price. ;D

    Ever wondered what you cat thinks? Max (the Psychokitty) Thompson may leave you sleeping with one eye open... $1.59 each (it should make me sad, he has a much larger fan base than I ever will  :D )

         

    And he's written out the rules for being owned by a cat...complete with paw drawn illustrations... for $1.19

    The Orbit $1 book for April is out, it's called Winterbirth.



    $1.00 for April

    From Booklist (in the description section on Amazon):
    Scotsman Ruckley's first novel launches a promising trilogy set in the unromanticized medieval Highlands. The gods and their magic have departed, and grim feuds and endless skirmishing prevail as the weather gets ever colder. Chief among feuding clans are the Haigs, and chief among their warriors is a thane in whom some of the old powers may be awakening. This isn't necessarily good news for the Haig clan, for those powers will make their already murderous battles even grislier. But it isn't bad news for readers, since it makes the book much more difficult to put down. Green, Roland

    3.5 stars overall, 37 ratings (7 5-star, 13 4-star, 7 3-star, 5 2-star, 5 1-star). 576 pages print length, 837kb file size.  Sounds like from the reviews that maybe it starts out slow and then picks up.  The reviews of the sequel, Bloodheir (there only 9 so far but at 4.5 stars), sound like maybe he improved on his second try.

      Note this second one, Bloodheir, is $9.99.  Just posting it for convenience.

    For the amazingly low price of $2.40, you can time travel back to ancient Rome and experience the intimate intrigue of household life in a time when masters and slaves shared close quarters. Miranda is a modern woman stranded in the past and sold into slavery. To survive, she has to understand an alien world. She makes a place for herself by becoming a storyteller (and because her stories provide her with ways to interfere in family matters, she also becomes a focus for conflict. Falling in love with her Roman master, Marcus Tullius, complicates her life further.  The modern world fades from her mind as she becomes increasingly absorbed in her new life. When she has a choice, will she return to her own world?   As author, I have been touched to receive fan letters from a wide variety of readers, including readers of fantasy, YA, romance, and historical fiction, scholars of classical archeology, and time travel fans who thought perhaps I should have given Miranda more power to meddle in Roman life.  I welcome communication and questions from readers. Please visit the web site at www.rebecca-east.com to view examples of the ancient art that inspired descriptions of characters, villas, artwork, gardens, and even the humble objects of everyday use. I invite you to visit Miranda's world...

    My novel, Waiting For Spring, is $3.19. All the proceeds will be donated to Spruce Run, a domestic abuse project here in Maine that provides information and support to all people affected by domestic abuse.

    A recently divorced woman trudges out of one small, Maine town and into an even smaller one, hoping to escape her pain. Instead she finds herself surrounded by people who are trudging on, just like her. Waiting for things to get better. Waiting for spring.

    I had the first one of these on my wishlist and earlier today when I saw the price drop I bought it. I didn't realize the others were the same price, thanks! I'm off to buy the rest. Is this a series?

    Just downloaded all 6 books, have no idea when I will read them, still slogging through The Treasure of Malinche by our own Jeff - I say slogging, but it is a great book!

    I hope that this is the right place to post this - I like to read romance novels as "fluffy filler" in between more serious reading and I was looking at some of the multi-book Harlequin sets on Amazon. The older sets from Spring 2008 seemed like a good deal to me; 12 books for $36 is $3 per book - just under what you would pay at a discounter like Target. Then I found the more recent months' releases. They have only 8 books per set, but at $16.50, you are paying only $2.06 per book. Buy 2 sets, and you get 16 books for $3 less than you would pay for 12 in the older sets. Just wanted to pass it along - I guess the economy is reducing both number of releases and their prices!

    Oh, by the way, this is specifically in the "Harlequin Presents" line - I haven't checked on the other imprints, but they may have a similar story.

    I didn't catch the connection originally, to realize these were *your* cat's books.  Just finished the first one, and loved it. Lots of laugh-out-loud moments, and nodding along, thinking "yep, one or more of my cats do that". Have bought the other two books now also, and have Max's blog in my bookmarks. :)

    Man...making Max move back in 2004...that was brutal! :D

    You're a peach, Betsy. :)

    My books Wysard and Lord Brother are now on sale for $4.80 each, down from $6.00. If that seems steepish, readers are cordially invited to check out entire first chapters, synopses and reviews at my newly redecorated website, http://carolynkephart.com. Both volumes are also available in paperback on Amazon, and can be had very reasonably (cheaper than Kindle in the case of WYSARD) in the Used and New section.

    "A well-written, intelligent fantasy with a beautifully crafted world ... A book to ponder, savor, contemplate but not rush through at breakneck speed, Wysard adds new dimensions to the fantasy genre by adding new concepts, or by looking at old concepts in a fresh manner. Concise but lyric, the prose complements the tale." ~Patricia White, Crescent Blues Book Views

        

    Happy reading,

    CK

    I was looking around for a new paranormal romance today and came across this bundle:



    According to the description, this contains the first three books of the Lords of the Underworld series, plus a short prequel for a total of $9.99. For $3.33 each, I'm happy to give it a try (each book is $6.99 separately). I haven't read any of this author's work, but this series gets great reviews in the PNR community.
