BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--February, 2006
New in February
Look for THE DEAD STAY DEAD by Anthony Perham to arrive in mid-February. As with all of our books, this mystery will be available for only $1 for the first month of its release, so be sure to check back often. THE DEAD STAY DEAD is a sequel to Perham's exciting A FULL ENGLISH DEATH. Check that one out, too. (Note: you don't need to read ENGLISH DEATH to enjoy DEAD, but I think you'll want to.)
Last Month's Releases:
In January, we released two mysteries:
Time is running out to buy these eBooks for only $1--DEADLY AGE ends on February 6, and OOLONG TEA on February 13, so act quickly.
