Last week, after having enrolled several books in the Kindle Select program and taken advantage of a few free promotions for essays and short stories, I decided to see how my novel, The Prodigal Hour, would fare. And fare well it did, hitting high ranks, breaking into the top-1oo Kindle Bestsellers, and so far, at least, it’s been maintaining more sales than before. You can find it here, for $4.99.
In fact, it went so well Nick Earls and I decided to do something Exciting.
I’ve been thrilled to work so closely with Nick, an internationally bestselling author, and not just on the Kindle store. Nick’s books have hit many lists in more countries. He’s had books published by Saint Martin’s in the US and Random House in Australia and several other houses and publishers besides.
Now he’s partnered with Exciting Press to bring stories, novellas, and novels to Kindle. Today marks a new publication of a story, “Cabin Baggage,” and a new option:
For the first three days of its digital existence, “Cabin Baggage,” will be free. In addition, it includes a free excerpt of Nick’s novel Monica Bloom, which in its turn, and for the next week only, includes a bonus novella, Grass Valley.
And that’s not even all.
I know! A free short story from an international bestseller! For any other publisher, that’d be enough, wouldn’t it?
Exciting Press isn’t any other publisher, is it?
Well. We’re hoping not to be.
Which is why we’re also offering Meets Girl free, also for a limited time.
Two exciting stories. One lower-than-low price.
This Valentine’s Day, make romance Exciting.
