This is just a quick little post to tell you about a new program Amazon is doing. It’s called Kindle MatchBook, and it’s pretty cool for those of us who like to read both at home and on the go.
The upshot of the Kindle MatchBook program is, if you buy a paperback on Amazon, you can get the Kindle Edition of the same book for a discount. In the case of Frostwalker, I’ve set that discount to 100%, meaning that those who buy Frostwalker in paperback through Amazon can get the Kindle Edition for FREE!
Also, if you’ve already purchased a paperback copy of Frostwalker through Amazon, you should be able to get the Kindle Edition for free as well. By the way, Kindle isn’t just for Kindle devices – there are freeKindle apps for PC’s and other platforms as well!
Just a few updates for you today. First, I’m happy to announce that the ebook version of Frostwalker will see a price drop from $3.99 to $2.99 for the Blogger Book Fair! In fact, this change has already been made and the price has updated at Smashwords and Amazon, but it will probably take a little while for the price to update on the other retailers downstream of Smashwords (Sony, iTunes, Kobo, B&N, etc) as well as the international Amazon sites. I don’t know if this price change will only be for the fair, or if it will be a longer-term change. Time will tell…
Also, the Blogger Book Fair will begin next Monday! This time around I will be a full participant rather than just a host blog. In addition to hosting guest posts from other authors, I will be appearing on other blogs as well as running a giveaway to win a paperback copy of Frostwalker. I hope you’ll check back here, as well as at the Blogger Book Fair site, throughout the week. You’ll be able to enter my giveaway, vote for Frostwalker in the BBF Reader’s Choice Awards, and catch all the great content and offers that will be going on next week!
More retailers will be added as the book filters out into the distribution system.
To learn more about the book and to read excerpts, visit the Frostwalker page here on my blog. Also, if you’d like to read the first third of the book for free, visit the Smashwords link above to view the sample.
