My Kindle of PROSPECT launches October 20-27 for 99 cents for a limited time.
In honor of the Kindle Launch of my novel THE PROSPECT OF MY ARRIVAL & the Unending Recession -- I am offering my Kindle book for a mere 99 cents for one week! October 20-27, 2011. Please purchase the Kindle book at Amazon.com during these dates for the best impact on my Amazon ranking. After that, the price will go to its normal price of $6.95, which is still a great bargain.
So if your budget is tight and you're eager to read my book, this offer is perfect for you. If you want to support an emerging artist like myself, you can wait a week and get the ebook after the promotion for $6.95. Of course the best thing is to get the Kindle and the paperback together. The paperback is a thing of beauty, inside and out, for $14.95. It'll look great on your book shelf. Prospect made it to the Top Three out of 5,000 entries in the Amazon novel contest in 2008. It tells of a human embryo that is allowed to preview the world before deciding whether to be born.
I was browsing through the book on trends call THE TIPPING POINT: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell. This popular book explores what happens when small numbers of people start behaving differently. That unique behavior can ripple outward until a critical mass or "tipping point" is reached, changing the world. How does an unknown author sell a million e-books? How does a youtube video of a kitten falling asleep go viral? How, indeed, does a virus behave? Gladwell suggests that ideas, products, messages spread like viruses. What is a good idea's tipping point moment and how do you help it along? What made all the emerging paradigms shifts in the publishing world possible? So many factors: the arrival of Kindle, the downturn of the economy, the attractiveness of self publishing, the impatience of writers with gatekeepers and publishing trends...
I don't have any big answers. But the questions are worth wrestling with! The right book at the right moment meets the right audience... To read reviews of my book, to see the groovy book trailer, go to dwightland.homestead.com
