BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--December, 2008
News and Events
- Welcome to the December edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter. I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season. Remember--if you give eBooks for your holiday gifts, you're not just giving a present, you're introducing your friends to a whole new (and better) way of reading. We've got a lot going on, so check it out.
- You can buy BooksForABuck.com stuff from our Cafe Press Store (no markup). (Authors, please let me know if you're interested in your own Cafe Press Store. It's free and I'll be happy to help with artwork and to link to it.)
- If you haven't already done so, check out our videos page. Trailers, video versions, author rants, and just-for-fun entertainment.
During November, we pubished WITCH-FINDER by Vanessa Knipe--a fantasy with the adventures of the Church of England's dedicated witch-finders. Time is running out on your chance to buy this great collection for only $1 (regular price is $3.99). Here is the cover and a bit of detail:
||Demonic elementals, vampires, krakens, werewolves, and other monsters aren't as mythical as many of us believe. They roam the English countryside, playing their games, fighting their wars, and claiming the souls of many humans. Although many deny their existance, the Church of England is not among the doubters. A special branch of the Church, headquartered at the College of St. Van Helsing, battles demons and attempts to save fallen humans before their souls are devoured. Author Vanessa Knipe spins us stories of the faculty and students of St. Van Helsing--of their successes and failures in this eternal battle. Only $3.99--but it's on introductory sale for only $1.00 until December 18, 2008--what a great holiday gift. As always, you can read a free excerpt before buying. Check it out here.
As a holiday special, I'm bringing back the contest. Name three books BooksForABuck.com has published in 2008 and win two copies of any book of your choice--one for you and one to give away as a holiday gift to a friend. Send your responses to me at publisher 'at' booksforabuck.com (replacing the 'at' with the @ sign). Hint: Look here for Science Fiction/Fantasy, here for Mystery/Suspense, and here for Romance/Woman's Fiction. Contest ends December 23, 2008 so you can give your gifts before at Christmas/Hanukkah.
