It’s my Birthday! My eBooks Are on Sale for 99 Cents! For How Long? Who Knows.

99 cent sale on Sandy Nathan's ebooks

It's my birthday and I'll do what I wanna. And that's give you a good deal on my books.

Yep! It’s true: on August 7th, I’ll be another year older. And you can benefit from my special Birthday Amazon eBook Sale! I’m pricing all my eBooks at 99 cents. For how long? I don’t know. I’m reading all these marketing books that say, “Make the sale for just a few days, then raise the price.” They say other things, too. Bottom line: I could pull the sale down any minute. Also, we’re changing the covers and titles (in two cases). Do you think I’ll put my babies up for 99 cents with the new covers? Better buy right now.

So, in honor of my birthday, treat yourself to a good read. My books have ratings of above 4 stars on Amazon. They’ve won 24 national awards between them. Links to their Amazon sale pages are below: check ‘em out for yourself.

Meanwhile, Happy Birthday to me, and everyone else with August birthdays, and everyone with birthdays in any ol’ month! CELEBRATE!

Sandy Nathan (My website is a click away. Pictures, stories, riches of imagination.)

Here are my kids:

EARTH’S END TRILOGY:

The Angel & the Brown-Eyed Boy

 

The Angel & the Brown-Eyed Boy (Earth’s End 1) The haunting story of a teenage boy and an intergalactic traveler given the task of saving two worlds. Nuclear Armageddon will destroy all life on Earth tomorrow morning at 7:35 AM. They must stop it. Winner of multiple national awards for Visionary Fiction, including the Gold Medal at the IPPYs (Independent Press) Awards, the oldest and largest contest for independent presses.

(Note: We’ll be changing covers soon. This is the new cover. It’s not up on Amazon yet.)

 

 

Lady Grace & the War for a New World

 

Lady Grace: A Thrilling Adventure . . . (Earth’s End 2) Nuclear war destroys most life on Earth. Survivors are blasted back into prehistoric conditions. They must fight for their lives against natural predators and monstrous mutations.

(Note: With Lady Grace, we’ll be changing the cover and title soon. This is the new cover and title. They aren’t up on Amazon yet.)

 

 

 

The Headman & the Assassin. Does she stab him in the heart? Read and see.

The Headman & the Assassin:  Love blossoms in a bomb shelter far below ground. It’s a romance for the ages, with not escape for anyone, ever. The lovers’ passion lasts beyond death. It’s a sizzling obsession that will move you to tears. This is my favorite of the series. It’s not all action-action, explosions, bugs jumping around. It’s a love story, and it’s a killer.

(Note: The book’s existing title is Sam & Emily. It’s changing to The Headman & the Assassin. This is the new cover. It’s not up on Amazon yet.)

 

 

 

 

Tecolote: The Little Horse That Could

 

Tecolote: The Little Horse That Could: The heartwarming true story of a premature baby horse and how he overcomes a hard start to have a good life. Winner of multiple national awards for Juvenile Nonfiction.

I’ve had a couple of people who have serious diseases tell me that Tecolote’s triumph comforted and inspired them in their personal journeys.

 

 

 

Stepping Off the Edge: Learning & Living Spiritual Practice

Stepping Off the Edge: Learning & Living Spiritual Practice  A spiritual companion for modern people. Warm, funny, useful. Winner of six national awards in Spirituality, Self Help, and Memoir.

I put everything I’ve learned in my life––in or out of school––that was useful in the book. Its full of ideas, practices, and stories that help. I’ve had people tell me that it played a major role in their spiritual lives. It’s not a “How to” book: “The way you meditate is sit in a chair . . .” “The way to pray is . . .”  The book is not like that. Think in terms of stories.

Sandy Nathan creages magic with her visionary fiction, science fiction and fantasy.

If you'll excuse me, I'll go back to making magic.

Sandy Nathan’s Kindle eBooks Are on Sale for 99c through January 2, 2013 Sci-fi-Fantasy-Visionary Fiction-Kids’ Book-Memoir


Click here on on the image above to be transported to my Amazon Author page and all my books!

YES, IT’S TRUE. I’ve really won 24 national awards with my books and I’ve racked up 55 five-star reviews. And 13 four-star puppies. I don’t usually talk about my trophies, finding that . . . rather repulsive. And overdone. I probably get 2 or 300 emails a day, most by people ecstatically announcing––and even posting––a new 5 star review. Or award or something. It irritates me. I don’t know if it irritates you; I’ve operated on the assumption that it does.

BUT THERE’S A TIME FOR CHANGE! With joy in my heart, I’ve abandoned modesty, also good taste, as I”m sure you’ll agree when you see the accompanying image, to sock it to ya.
My Kindle eBooks are on sale until Jan. 2, 2013. Don’t be shy! Amazon is reported to be running out of pixels due to the enthusiastic buyers of new Kindles. Don’t wait, you’ll be late.

HERE ARE LINKS TO AND DESCRIPTIONS OF SANDY’S SIX BOOKS!
They range from wild sci-fi to adorable children’s nonfiction. You’ll find something you’ll like in the list below:

  • NUMENON,  a novel about the richest man in the world meeting a great Native American shaman
  • STEPPING OFF THE EDGE, a modern day spiritual companion
  • TECOLOTE, the adorable kids’ book about a baby horse.
  • EARTH’S END––the new, three book sci-fi/fantasy/visionary series that takes you to the end of the earth, and beyond.
    The Angel & the Brown-Eyed Boy––An angelic girl shows up on the sidewalks of New York City in 2197. Or is she a girl? Jeremy Edgarton, teenage genius and revolutionary decodes the transmissions. They say the world will blow up tomorrow morning.
    Lady Grace––The radiation has cleared. A few survivors make it back to Piermont Manor to start a new life. What they face is a battle more deadly than any they’ve fought. Evolution can work for evil as well as good.
    Sam & Emily––Can love live in an echoing cement bomb shelter three hundred feet below the earth’s surface? Find out in Sam and Emily as headman Sam Baahuhd falls in love with a beautiful assassin.

Sandy Nathan abandons good taste and modesty to tell you about her books being on sale until January 2nd.

Creating is so much fun. This little bit appeared as I made the ad below.

I admit, my feelings were hurt. I saw an ad displayed by a very prominent author. Actually, 99 of them were in on the deal. They promised free books and prizes  worth a lot of money if you would buy their eBooks today. All 99 authors were offering their books that magic price of 99 cents. It’s magic because Amazon will allow you to price your book no lower, unless you give it away, but that’s a different program.

I was hurt by the fact that they didn’t invite me to swim amongst them, but also because they had the jazziest promo page with links and hyperlinks and double hyperlinks to all of their books, sorted by genre and author’s name, and the author’s dog’s name. Boy, did I feel outclassed.

My usual announcements and book ads reek of so much good taste that the deportment teacher where I took dancing lessons in fourth grade would give them a blue ribbon or maybe nominate me for good manners sainthood. Well, enough of that.

I created the ad which follows because I realized my approach was limited and perhaps old fashioned.  (Also snobby.) I want you to know that my books are not on sale for 99c for a lousy DAY––they’re on sale until January 2. I wouldn’t wait that long to buy though, for a couple of reasons. Amazon is kinda arbitrary about when it changes prices. You may have noticed that trying to download a free book. “Oh! It was supposed to be free. But I just downloaded it for $9.99!” Oops.

The other reason is that Amazon is rumored to have laid up an insufficient supply of pixels to deliver all the eBooks that new Kindle (and other types of readers) owners will want for their new devices. So, get your copies of my books before they run out. (Did I tell you that it’s December 21, winter solstice and the day the world is supposed to come to an end, at least according to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar. It’s a day when anything can happen. Including a dearth of pixels.)

More art from scrap, this kind electronic. Kinda cool.

 

 

So, here’s my sales spiel:

YES, IT’S TRUE. I’ve really won 24 national awards with my books and I’ve racked up 55 five-star reviews. And 13 four-star puppies. I don’t usually talk about my trophies, finding that . . . rather repulsive. And overdone. I probably get 2 or 300 emails a day, most by people ecstatically announcing––and even posting––a new 5 star review. Or award or something. It irritates me. I don’t know if it irritates you; I’ve operated on the assumption that it does.

BUT THERE’S A TIME FOR CHANGE! With joy in my heart, I’ve abandoned modesty, also good taste, as I”m sure you’ll agree when you see the accompanying image, to sock it to ya.
My Kindle eBooks are on sale until Jan. 2, 2013. Don’t be shy!
