BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--December, 2008
News and Events
- Welcome to the January edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter. It's a new year. Each year, many of us promise to treat ourselfs better, to exercise more, to pay more attention to health, and to take better care of our minds. I hope that you'll all join me in considering reading as an essential part of our life--and something that can give us joy even in tough economic times.
- 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 December, we pubished GOING POSTAL by Amy Eastlake. This is the latest in Eastlake's Texas Trailer Park Mystery series--a charming set of stories featuring spunky female sleuths. You can buy this book for only $1.00 (regular price is $3.99) but only until January 23. It's available in HTML, Adobe Acrobat PDF, eReader (formerly Palm Reader), Mobipocket, Microsoft Reader, Sony Reader and ePub formats.
Now available in paperback (from Amazon), GOING POSTAL by Amy Eastlake and WITCH-FINDER by Vanessa Knipe.
The winner of our special Holiday contest was Amy T. Congratulations Amy. Amy won a copy of her choice of our books--and another copy to send to her friend. Stay tuned for more contests and other opportunities.
