BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--January, 2006
New in January
Today we published DEADLY AGE by Michael Paulson. This hard-boiled detective mystery is the second in the Deacon Bishop series. We published the first, DEAD ON, back in May, 2006.
Later this month, we'll publish the award-winning OOLONG TEA AT 10:30 by Alice Reed--an intense mystery that kicks off when she discovers that the body in her lover's coffin doesn't belong to him at all.
Remember, for the first month after publication, these books will be available for the incredibly low price of only $1. Be sure to check them out.
Published in December, 2006
A MATTER IN TIME: THE DOODA Vol. 2. The conclusion of the epic Dooda series as the crew of an airship travels across both time and space in an attempt to prevent an invasion of their world. (See also Volume 1: THE QUEST FOR THE TALISMAN).
