May Sale

WE’RE OVERSTOCKED ON ALL CAPS, BOLDS, AND EXCLAMATION POINTS, SO WE’RE PRACTICALLY GIVING THEM AWAY!!!!!!!

I made a mistake, so the US-only Countdown Deal originally planned for May 9-15 and the UK-only Countdown Deal the following week are now one MEGA INTERNATIONAL 7-DAY WORLDWIDE SALE, MAY 9 THROUGH MAY 15, 2017!

In the US, a sleazier marketer than I might exploit the proximity to the Hallmark holiday by calling it a MEGA INTERNATIONAL 7-DAY EXTENDED PRE-MOTHER’S DAY WORLDWIDE SALE!

🌺 💝 📚 MOM! 📚 💝 🌺

This will be the first price drop on Ten Thousand Hours since the preorder/early adopter discount back in November, and EVERYBODY GETS THE DEAL!

US $0.99

Canada $0.99

Australia $0.99

UK £0.99

France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, and Spain €0.99

Japan ¥99

India ₹99

Brazil $2.99

Mexico $17.99

And everywhere that is not one of those countries but has the ability to buy from one of those Amazon stores!

Lest you think I’m shafting our friends to the south, prices listed reflect the currency exchange on $0.99 USD rounded down to the nearest 99. When I say EVERYBODY GETS THE DEAL, I mean EVERYBODY GETS THE DEAL, even if it looks like SOMEBODY GETS GOUGED!

I’ve booked plenty of third-party promo to spread the word, but if anyone who read the book and liked it (or read it and has a scathing, GIF-laden review hilarious enough to drum up interest) would care to further boost the signal, below is a link that should localize to the appropriate Amazon store for any clicker worldwide (courtesy of BestAzon):

Copy and paste at will! Or visit the product page and grab your own affiliate-coded link if you’re into that sort of thing. No reason you shouldn’t pick up a few pennies, too!

MY LOSS IS YOUR BAR-GAIN! EVERY BOOK MUST GO, GO, GO! SUPPLIES ARE NOT LIMITED, BUT THE DURATION OF THE SALE IS, SO ACT TODAY OR AT LEAST NO LATER THAN MAY 15!

Kindles on Sale

Conveniently timed for Read an Ebook Week, select Kindle models are $20 off for a limited time. (I can’t find more specific info on how limited that time may be, so maybe don’t drag your feet.)

I have a many-generations-ago Kindle (with buttons! how retro!). There are still books I insist on having in paper, but the Kindle is my go-to for books for which I’m not sure I want to make space and/or pay full price. I check Smart Bitches Sunday through Thursday for sales and pick up tons of major publisher titles for $2.99 or less (my comfort zone for books I’m not sure about). Other sales postings are plentiful elsewhere on the net, but be careful about too much temptation if you’re on a budget.


Kindle, 6″ Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers is $59.99 after the discount.

Kindle Paperwhite, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers  is $99.99 after the discount.

(“Special Offers” means a thin ad banner at the bottom of your home screen and a full-page ad on your sleep screen. You can pay extra to turn them off, but I find them completely ignorable and endorse going for the cheaper price.)
