Kindle MatchBook – Buy the Print Book, Get the Kindle Book Half Off

October 1, 2013

Hello my friends!

Sorry I've not been blogging much. It was a whirlwind five weeks away from home promoting the release of Unexpected Superhero! Lots to tell you, but I'll have to catch you up slowly because I'm working on getting the short story, “Superhero in Disguise,” out to you this month! More on that later, too.

MatchBook_logoPreLaunchImage2Today I want to tell you about a new program at Amazon that I've enrolled my books in. It's called Kindle MatchBook, and it launches in October. (Does that mean today? See more details here.) Apparently, if you buy a print copy of my books (and lots of other books!) from the Amazon.com web site, you can buy the Kindle edition for at least 50% off.

This is what it says on the Amazon page:

For thousands of qualifying books, your past, present, and future print-edition purchases will soon allow you to buy the Kindle edition for $2.99, $1.99, $0.99, or free.

That means that Little Miss Lovesick would be 99 cents and Unexpected Superhero would be $1.99 as ebooks. It has to be at least half off, but I can only choose prices with 99 on the end. Since Lovesick is normally $2.99, and half is $1.50, I had to go to the next lower 99 point. A better deal for you!

I had to ask you guys on my Facebook Author page if this even sounded like something you cared about. Maybe it would be a waste of time. But Rachel said she wouldn't mind having a print and ebook copy of the same book. And I was thinking that I'd buy a print copy of a book to give someone as a Christmas gift and keep the ebook for myself. So after discussing it with you guys, I enrolled both books.

I looked on the book pages on Amazon to see if there is a notice that says, this book is enrolled in the Kindle MatchBook program, but I don't see anything yet. I guess we'll figure it out together. 🙂

Meanwhile, I'm working on my short story. It's about when Tori and Joe (from Unexpected Superhero) meet in costume on Halloween. It's a fun story, perfect for this time of year. I'd wanted to have it available for you today, but I'm having some personal life crises (yes, more than one) that I have to deal with as well. Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of your plans?! LOL!

I hope you're all having a lovely week! I'll start catching you up on my whirlwind book tour soon!
