SOME BIG NEWS — AND HOW YOU CAN HELP ME!
I’m delighted to announce that the Amazon Kindle staff have selected both of my Dylan Hunter thrillers — HUNTER, and its sequel, BAD DEEDS — for inclusion in their August “Kindle Monthly Deal” promotion! The ebook editions will be available for only $1.99 each — or just $3.98 for the set.
This is really huge for me, friends. Out of over 3 million titles, only about 300 books are selected by Amazon Kindle editors for these promotions. When they selected HUNTER for a week-long promotion in late 2011, it soared right to the top of the bestseller lists. This time, I’ll have two books being promoted for an entire month. And though I don’t expect a repeat sales performance, this certainly will give them a big boost of visibility to thousands of new readers.
And here is how you can help me:
1. If you have not yet downloaded one or both of my books, starting on Saturday August 1 you’ll be able to get them at half-price. That’s two bestselling thrillers for the price of one — just $3.98 for the set! And you don’t need a Kindle ereader to download and read them, either: The free Kindle app lets you read ebooks on any smart phone, tablet, iPad, etc.
2. If you have read and enjoyed the books, you can “gift” them to anyone of your choice, at a bargain price. All you need is the recipient’s email address. For instructions, just click the “Give as a gift” button in the upper right section of the books’ Amazon pages. So, if someone you know loves to read thrillers (crime, espionage, political, etc.), mysteries, or romantic suspense novels, they should enjoy the Dylan Hunter tales.
3. I would be especially grateful if you would time your purchases for the first weekend — Saturday August 1, or Sunday, August 2. Simultaneous purchases will give the books their best chance of climbing high onto the Amazon bestseller lists, where they will be visible to a lot more browsing customers for the rest of the month. However, I’ll appreciate purchases any time during August.
4. Finally….PLEASE share this message on your social media! You can click the media buttons on the right side of the top of this post.
Thanks so much for considering this request — and for your continuing friendship. I’ll let you know later how the promotion is going.
