We’re living in uncertain, frightening times. I hope five years from now I look back at this post, knowing we made it through and our world is more prepared for future crises. But for now we can only do our part to stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19.
Many of you don’t know where your next paycheck is coming from. And for those of you fortunate to have a steady paycheck, you’re probably looking to save money wherever possible as the world economy inevitably turns down.
You might think I’m self-serving in promoting books as a great entertainment deal, but I put my money where my mouth is. As a family, we’re shuttering many entertainment items such as expensive TV streaming packages and turning to books, where we get far more value.
Let’s get right into the deals I’m taking advantage of.
Kindle Unlimited is an Amazon service that allows you to read an unlimited amount of books every month for only $9.99. Which authors are in the Kindle Unlimited program? Many of your favorites, including J.K. Rowling, Melinda Leigh, Rachel Caine, Dean Koontz, and many more. All my books are included in your Kindle Unlimited subscription.
I subscribe to Kindle Unlimited and borrow several books per month. Though I’ve never calculated the savings, I estimate I save between 40% and 60% over the cost of purchasing the books outside of Kindle Unlimited. A wonderful perk is, if you open a book and discover it isn’t what you were looking for, you simply return the book to Kindle Unlimited and download something better. Zero risk.
And if you sign up today, you get a free one-month trial to decide if Kindle Unlimited is right for you.
Chris Fox is a talented fiction writer, but he also pens some of the best how-to books for authors in the business. This week, Chris Fox lowered the cost of all eight books in the Write Faster, Write Smarter series to only 99 cents each. If you’re an author, you can’t pass up this opportunity. Fox’s books are informative, inspiring, and razor-focused.
Self-serving time again. I released books 6 through 10 in the Scarlett Bell thriller series as a box set today for only $6.99. A pretty good deal for five books and several hundred pages of thrills.
Many fellow authors, too many to list, are posting sales every day to help you save a little money. Keep your eyes open on Amazon, and please post in the comments below if you find a great deal.
That’s it for today. Please stay safe and healthy.
