Well I know I had sworn off any promotions as of March 1, but just hours ago I received a notice from Boomerang's paperback publisher telling me that if I wanted the title to continue to be available they would like me to send them money. Considering the ebook has outperformed the paperback by a wide, wide margin, I decided they could pull the plug on the paperback and by golly, we'd have a little wake for it by doing another half price coupon for the ebook from Smashwords.

So, here 'tis. Good through the end of April, 2010. HK56J

Boomerang at Smashwords

Long live the ebook!

Best,
Alan

Thanks, Billjr,

I've been splitting my writing time between Close Enough for Jazz, which is the next Ted and Jerry adventure, and The Baer Boys, a stand alone book. I'm not far enough along in Jazz to have anything to present to the public yet, but for anyone who would like a look at the beginning of The Baer Boys I have the opening chapters posted at authonomy.com.

The Baer Boys

As for the laughs, well, you are most welcome! But they wouldn't be there if lovely folks like you weren't reading the book!

Best,
Alan

As part of the wake for the paperback version of Boomerang, I'm conducting a What's Your Favorite Character drawing over at nookboards with the prize being an autographed copy (I'll scribble whatever the winner wants) of one of the last copies of the book to see the light of day. If you would like to enter, please do so at this link: Autographed Copy of Boomerang or just go to nookboards.com and click on the Book Club MB.

Thanks,
Alan

After long deliberation and consulting with Those Who Know Best, I have decided to adjust Boomerang's ebook price to $4.99 as of the end of this week. I'm not sure how long it will take Amazon to make the change, but I will be submitting it on Friday. The current coupon will be canceled at that time. Thanks to everyone here who has already gotten a copy.

Best,
Alan

Sorry, but the coupon is now going away after Saturday, March 20th. Even though the regular price at Smashwords has already bumped up to $4.99 the coupon will get you the ninety-nine cent price through Saturday.

Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who has picked up a copy of Boomerang. Over a thousand downloaded since September, way more than I ever dreamed. The coupon is gone, but I see that neither Amazon nor Barnes and Noble have made the price adjustment to $4.99 yet, even though it was submitted five days ago. The wheels of e-commerce do spin slowly on some things, eh? But it does mean that at least for another day Boomerang can be gotten for $1.99 at those two places.

Best to all,
Alan

P.S. Thanks to Dr. D for being such a congenial moderator here at MR. I very much appreciate all the help and patience!

Well, silly me, it seems I didn't complete all of the requested information for the price change to get into the approval process at Amazon. So I went back and did it again. Gonna take a few days to go through their review whatchamacallit.

So while that's in the works, no reason not to hike out the ol' Smashwords coupon for one more week.

Your personal ninety-nine cent special.

CU67Y is the coupon code. Good through March 30. By then Amazon should have the price right. And you'll be so glad you got yourself a deal.

Thanks,
Alan

I am sorry about the misleading title to this thread. It is all my fault. And maybe it's my fault that I can't get the pricing for Boomerang consistent across the three sites where it is available. So while I try to get this sorted out, please take advantage of the ninety-nine cent coupon when you get your copy at Smashwords.

Coupon code: CU67Y

Best,
Alan

Amazon has gotten the price right, so now we're just waiting on B&N. But for the next three days Boomerang can be gotten at Smashwords for just $.99 using coupon code CU67Y.

Thanks,
Alan
