26th ~ National Buy Bob's Book Day
in 2012 we came up with a silly way of promoting Bobís published
works. Time Just Drifts Away had been released that summer,
and ideas were being considered to figure out a way to shine a
light or two in the direction of the project.
the course of a few days in late July that summer, a variety of
items were being passed around for national day of this and national
day of that. And as we like to say around here, if raspberry cream
pie can have a day for itself, why not Bobís books?
year, with Suspiciously Picturesque having been released
a few months ago, that spotlight is hitting fourteen efforts.
And we do have some announcements and special offers to share.
As of today, the Kindle editions of every one of Bobís published
titles are available for 99-cents. (Adjust accordingly internationally.)
All fourteen books, and you can add all of them to your Kindle
library for less than fifteen dollars.
During the festivities Ė from August 24th to August 28th Ė the
Kindle editions of five of Bobís books will be available as
free downloads. This includes Volumes One, Two
and Three of the Strange and Unexpected series
(Florida, California and Las Vegas), Something Old, Something
New, and Title Town.
All month long (requests made from today until August 31st),
the two most recent releases Ė A Parkside View: Volumes
5 & 6 and Suspiciously Picturesque Ė are part
of a Special
Offer. For $25, you get the paperback editions of
both books, signed by Bob and shipped to you (certain shipping
restrictions may apply).
