New! Kindle Daily Deal…tick, tick, tick…
I was considering another round-up, but I thought I’d get this out right away to increase the chances that you can take advantage of today’s deal, if you want.
Amazon has added
Each day, they’ll put a book on sale for 24 hours (starting at about midnight Pacific time, where Amazon is located). I guess they’ve learned that from owning Woot.com.
I’m not sure how big a thing this will be for most people. Unless the publisher participates, it’s not going to be Agency Model books…and those are the six largest US trade publishers.
It does look like you can save some real money, though. In the case of the current title, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, you would save over $4.
You can visit the above site every day, get it on Twitter or get it on Facebook.
The Kindle Daily Post also has a website:
Interestingly, I don’t think you can subscribe to it in the Kindle store…you can do the Amazon Daily, but that’s not the same thing.
Update: I meant to thank “Emily Bronte” in the Amazon Kindle community for the heads up on this. Emily has been presenting the sales figures: the stratagem seems to be working in terms of sales (although not necessarily in terms of profit).
