…The best laid plans…
So there’s a promotion running tomorrow that’s 15 books in the Paleoish space at 99 Cents each. Runs for 24 hours, November 25. I was asked to include my book and I accepted. I’ve previously blogged about my distaste for the “book bundle” promotions, where it’s about $40 for all the books in the bundle; i.e., it’s all or nothing.
I enthusiastically participated in this one because it’s so different. It’s a la carte. That is, you can buy any one of the books for 99 Cents, all of them for about $15, or anything in-between. That sounds like a true value deal, to me.
Anyway, there’s a glitch. My publisher emailed and said Amazon will only let him set mine as low as $1.99, and that’s with lowering our commission from 70% to 35%. So, I check with the promoter and it turns out that happened with three of the cookbooks as well, with one being $2.99 minimum. It’s attributed to file size, and I do have a significant number of images in mine.
Oh, well, so $1.99 for mine, total of about $20 instead of $15 for all of them. Still going to be about 11 books at the 99 Cents advertised. Sorry for the inconvenience. Still a decent deal, I think.
So, that’s the deal right up there. Or, click this link.
Here’s the lineup:
9 cookbooks in the event
- The paleo Kitchen
- Everyday paleo
- The Ancestral Table
- The Modern No Nonsense Guide to paleo
- Beyond Bacon
- The Everything Weeknight paleo Cookbook
- Gather, the Art of paleo Entertaining
- The paleo Sweet Tooth
- Decadent paleo Desserts
6 reading books in the event
- The Primal Blueprint
- The paleo Girl
- The paleo Solution
- Sexy by Nature
- Free the Animal
- The paleo Manifesto
And, hey, if none of them are for you, that’s the way it is. And remember, if you have in the past liked some of what I do at FTA, or ultimately want to support my continuing work at no cost to you, it’s as easy as Hitting My Amazon Link when you shop, or calling up My Amazon Store, which I endeavor to update now & then.
In the meantime, happy reading and cooking.
UPDATE: OK, my book and one other in the mix have not had their prices lowered by Amazon yet, nearly 24 hours since settings were changed. They’ve been replaced by standbys for now, until the price changes. To make up for that, I’ll be leaving mine at $1.99 (once it finally changes) through the weekend instead of just 1 day. Subsequent to that, we’ll be lowering the price from its normal $7.95 to $3.99 permanently. Sorry for the poor execution.
Not trying to undercut the promotion, part of which is to raise all of out books in the bestseller list on Amazon, but until that price goes down to $1.99, my publisher has changed it to 99 Cents on their own sales page (all formats available). Again, sorry for screwing the pooch on execution here.
