I know that the list price on Gatemaker, as an e-book, is a bit on the high side, especially for an unproven, untested author. I also know that the book is pretty darn hefty at 180,000 words, and the price reflects that size, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is, the world works better with discounts, and I work better with deadlines.
So why not combine the two?
Starting today, every 30 days the price of Gatemaker in e-book form will drop by $0.50USD on Amazon. Every 60 days, the price of Gatemaker in e-book form will drop by $1.00USD on the iBookstore, Nook.com, and Lulu.com (Only Amazon allows prices on e-books that don’t end in $0.99 increments). This price free-fall will continue until the first draft of Mindshaper is complete!
This means that there is the very real chance that Gatemaker may be available for free if Mindshaper hits any significant snags in writing. My suffering is everyone else’s gain! Of course, right now Mindshaper is coming along nicely–but one never knows!
As soon as Mindshaper’s first draft is done, the free-fall on pricing stops. As soon as Mindshaper goes on sale, pricing will return to regular prices.
I want to honor the folks who took a chance on Gatemaker at full price in its initial month of release. If you are a January 2013 purchaser of Gatemaker in e-book form, please contact me through the comments section on this post to be included in a very special opportunity to be announced this summer! Names must be submitted via comments before February 15th, 2013 for consideration. Individuals may be asked questions (easily answerable by one in possession of the e-book) to verify ownership.
