Tender Graces Sale through Amazon Kindle Summer Reading Program Promotion

I'm peeking back in here only to tell you that Amazon Kindle put Tender Graces (and other books, too, of course!) on their Amazon Summer Reading promotion. So, for only fifteen days (beginning yesterday I guess), Tender Graces price is set by Amazon at $2.99 instead of $9.99.

So, friends, if you are interested in reading it, now's the time to do so at its lower price.

You all know I rarely do any "self promotion" thing on here, and I never ever say "buy my books y'all!" but, I do want to pass this on.

And, well, dang it, I admit it would really be cool to see Tender Graces back in the top five as it was about a year ago - that was so exciting! I was actually No 1 over Kathryn Stocket's The Help for a few days - *whoop!* -- so yes, I'd be thrilled if I was back there, but even being in the top 100 or top 50 is pretty danged cool

Anyway - I guess I'll see how it all turns out, this promo they are doing. I know that Bellebooks had to "nominate" titles, and then based on how well a title has done on Kindle they decided which books to pick - so, I'm excited to see what happens in the 15 days!

This is the Promo Page - I'm under "Literature and Fiction* It's their "Sunshine Deals" ;-D
Thank you all for your support - *muwah!*

PS - NOTE - I have tried again to stop by your places and leave a comment and still blogger is acting up - giving up in frustration, but, I will be reading at least your blogs a few at a time as I've been doing! I'm sure I'm not the only one having problems!

UPDATE: Thank you for your support !- Tender Graces is now in the Kindle Top 100 Best Sellers in Literary Fiction - I appreciate all of your support! On to number 1? Well, maybe not, but a girl can dream--it has happened before, maybe it'll happen again . . . lawd! :-D

That is so amazing Kat!!! I still really need to get myself an e-reader.

Kat, this whole Blogger thing is so weird! I had problems last week, but so far so good today. Maybe I jinxed myself just now.

Anyway, I think it's awesome that your lovely book was chosen for this summer deal. Thanks for spreading the word!

Wow, what a great compliment to you, yay! I'm definitely headed to Kindle!

I think Blogger's having a mid lifie and needs a shrink.

This is really so very exciting. It's impossible not to feel caught-up in the thrill of a wonderful, wonderful book up there on the top of the heap.

And such a crazy coincidence that I just finished Tender Graces not so long ago and am still feeling all aglow from my discovery and now here it is for everyone else to savor too!

Thanks for the link, Kat. It's handy dandy thing to pass on to everyone I've recommended your book to.

Oh, I hope it gets you back to the top! The UK Kindle store had a sale a month or so back, and most of the books on discount did really well in the rankings (and are still up there) so fingers crossed for you! :)

Karen said...

I'll check it out, Kathryn! I had blogger problems, but not today-thank goodness.

Yay for your books!

That's so fantastic, Kat! Whoop whoop!

Terri Tiffany said...

Congrats for being in the top 100 Best Sellers!! That is awesome!!

It's fascinating to see how ebooks are being pushed for this summer, and great for me with my Christmas present kindle. But it's neat that we can read them on our computers too. Wishing you great sales.

Ye-ha! I'm going right now. It's come at exactly the right time as I've just finished the first draft of my novel and so am feeling a bit bereft. And I'm broke, and I've been meaning to read Tender Graces for ages.

I'll tell all my Kindley friends too, it'd be so fun to see you at number 1.

Michelle Teacress said...

I just visited the amazon page and read your reviews. Wow. So how can I pass it up? It's now on my Kindle for PC, and my TBR list. :)

Man, I went to do that and realized I already have it Kindle and the book. LOVE IT.
