Kindle Daily Deal: Hangman’s Daughter, sequel each $0.99
Today’s Kindle Daily Deal is two books, each for ninety-nine cents:
The digital list price is $9.99, this is probably only in the USA, and interestingly, it’s “while supplies last”.
That’s always intriguing on a digital product…supplies should be effectively unlimited, right? I assume that means they set a specific amount that they are willing to sell at this prize.
These books are historical mysteries…written by a descendant of a famous family of executioners.
Also significant: this is part of Amazon’s traditional publishing line. In this case, it is AmazonCrossing, which takes books from outside the USA, and publishes them in it.
One thing that means is that the books have the features Amazon encourages in other publishers: text-to-speech and lending.
Remember, this is one of the important battlefields: can Amazon bypass the traditional publishers and publish editorially-selected books themselves? The first book has definitely been an example of that.
This is not just the Kindle Daily Deal, but also a Gold Box Deal, which gives it more visibility. I don’t know how many they’ve allotted, but it could “sell out” relatively quickly. As always, check the price before you click that buy button, just to be sure.
