Ahem. The next 12 days represent a splendid opportunity for any of you who may be looking for striking $0.99 eBook deals to either read personally or to bequeath to a loved one. A gathering of over 200 Indie novels and nonfiction eBooks are constituting the Indie Book Blowout’s 12 Days of Christmas sales event spectacular (otherwise known as IBB12DCSES).
I’ll probably be attached to a car battery for telling you this, but hey, it’s just the kind of guy I am. Not every book in the sale is a home run. Heck, my book is in the sale, and it’s a ground rule double at best. (Lousy drunk fan with a novelty hand…) But there are books in every genre, and the Kindle store allows you sneak a peek using the free sample (if you like me and too cheap to gamble $0.99 without tasting the goods first). A good number of the books in this sale are awesome (not even I will risk naming names. I think my wife and I are done having children, but still…)
But there is more!
If you are willing to sign up to the IBB newsletter you will be entered to win a free Kindle.
But that’s not all!
There is a extra, secret, special giveaway attached to the Indie Book Blowout (know as IBB12DCSESESSG). This is were it gets really good. 12 writers from within the larger blowout have colluded to promote each other in a completely selfish manner! (Take that IBB12DCSES!) Tweet or like this ESS giveaway and you will be enrolled to win a Kindle Fire, baby! (or a $200 gift card on Amazon.) If you buy the books involved in the ESS you’ll get extra chances to win! (For those of you who have put off Christmas shopping, you might soon be rewarded with a brand new Kindle Fire to gift.)[divider]
Anyway. Check out the site here, and see if there are any books you are interested in. I’ve listed them below for extra assistance. Stay thirsty, my friends.[divider]
