    Discounted E-Book Pricing Thread

    Hi all,

    I've seen a few people mentioning e-books being discounted to lower prices from time to time (particularly first books in series). Let's see if we can keep one thread with those sorts of things so people know where to go to find them. I'll kick off with one that I found last night:

    Liane Merciel's The River King's Road is currently priced at $3.99 at B&N.com and Amazon.com

    Harry Connolly's Child of Fire is currently priced at $0.99 at Amazon. Dunno about B and N.

    Wizard's First Rule, $2.99. Actually not read this one.

    Kindle has Into the Dark Lands by Michelle West at 89 cents. The other three books in this series (The Sundered) are all low priced, so that the entire series is only $7.16. I wish Amazon would just go ahead and bundle them all into an omnibus at that price.

    Oh hey I didn't see this.

    I just bought a ton of these given I've been trawling through the bargain books section. I'll check the product pages again and link the ones still on special:

    The well known authors:

    Under Heaven by GGK. $8.20 (sadly this was cheaper when I got it)

    Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. $3.10

    Alas, Wise Man's Fear was about $3.00 when I bought it, but it's no longer on special.

    Here's the non-well known authors:

    The Black God's War by Moses Siregar III. $2.95

    Shatter by Elisabeth C Mock. Free

    The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo. Free

    The Silence of Trees by Valya Dudycz Lupescu. $0.95

    Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock. Free

    There's also a bunch of random anthologies and things, but I just listed these ones that are the first of trilogies. The Sagara's, as mentioned above, are still at a reduced price.

    I'll add more as I find 'em.

    Orbit has put The Dragon's Path on sale again for $2.99. This also has the ARC of Levithan Wakes so you can get get two books for next to nothing.

    Having watched Orbit for some time now -- I've discovered what they "say" is not always what happens. For instance Hedgewitch Queen was only supposed to be $2.99 for the first month of release but it's always been $2.99. I think in this case they've made a business decision that that price is doing well for that book.

    Dragon's Path is still $2.99 right now...but there is no telling how long it will be that way. It may be that Orbit has already put in the request to return to normal pricing and it will take a while for Amazon to process it, or it may be that they are seeing good results, and have determined to continue the price break.

    They put my book on sale for $4.99 and it was supposed to last 7 days but it ended up being that way for about 11 days (IIRC) again in that case I think it was a matter of processing the request.

    Morale of the story - when you see the drop - snatch them right away, but if you miss the "dates" check and you might see a nice surprise.
