“Bones Buried in the Dirt” On Sale At Amazon For 10% Off

Right on the heels of another first (the first third-party seller for Bones Buried in the Dirt, which I posted about yesterday), Bones Buried in the Dirt has just had its first unexplained sale on Amazon. For whatever reason, Amazon is selling the book right now at 10% off ($11.69 instead of the $12.99 cover price, a savings of $1.30 per copy). Buy it now if you’d like to take advantage of the sale.

It’s an odd thing. I’m almost certain my publisher had nothing to do with the sale. It could be a good thing because it might get more people to pick up the book, but it might be a sign that Amazon thinks it isn’t selling well enough (whatever standards they go by, though I’m sure they have much higher demands than I do).

Do I feel happy about this? Ticked? Amused? Indifferent?

Well, I am kind of amused. I’ll admit that. I know Amazon does these sort of things all the time and I really have no idea why. I’ll just let it stay with being amused and let people know about the sale in hopes it attracts more readers. After all, Amazon is Amazon and is in the game to make the kind of money that small press, literary fiction just doesn’t tend to reach.
