Do You Like Newly Released Paperbacks Under $5?

Had a nice surprise this afternoon when an author friend told me that Amazon had her upcoming release in a favorite series on sale for $4.69 — down from the $7.99 regular price. That’s more than $1 less even than the price of a Kindle copy for this title. I went out and quickly purchased a copy of the book Knot the Usual Suspects by Molly MacRae. But as is my usual habit, I check to see what other books people are ordering who purchase this title, and found Amazon is running a number of other upcoming releases on sale in paperback at the $4.69 pricing–books all available for preorder ahead of a Sept. 1st release date. In looking further, I found more discounted upcoming releases at $5.69 in paperback, too,  for titles that will be released sooner–on August 4th. So I thought I’d do a quick blog to let everyone have a chance to grab titles in their favorite series at a discount–or try a new series at a bargain. These are not only for August 4th, Sept. 1st & Sept. 29th preorders, but one of the titles is already out and available for shipping at more than $2 off regular price–no waiting! All these books are better priced than their Kindle copies–some offer a more than $2 discount on the paperback over the price of an ebook! Also please note that you must click the hot link–in this case the book title–to shoot over to the books’ Amazon page. The book covers are just to liven up the blog–they aren’t a portal to transport you there, folks. Sorry 🙂

  1. Thanks, Ritter! These really are bargains. I wonder, if I have a book pre-ordered I will get the better price. I believe that’s what Amazon says they will do. I already have the Hyzy book. Loved it!!

  2. Thanks, Ritter! I found several fav series books as well and was gobsmacked that they were less expensive than ebooks. No complaining here!

    1. I agree, Gale, it’s surprising, but it’s also a great way to get people to try a new series, too. Hope all these authors sales are through the roof on release day 🙂
