Bargain (Kindle/Nook) Gordon Ryan's Spirit of Union Trilogy ($2.99)

Gordon Ryan's historical family saga Spirit of Union Trilogy (Three books in One) is just $2.99 for the Kindle and Nook.

Quote:
Product Description
Gordon Ryan has been a traditionally published author since 1994. In 2010, Pegasus Publishing republished each of his former novels and released his new thrillers, State of Rebellion and Uncivil Liberties.

Vol. I - Destiny: Fleeing an abusive father and a hopeless life in Ireland in 1895, nineteen-year-old Tom Callahan takes passage on a ship bound for America. On board, he meets Katrina Hansen, a young Norwegian woman traveling to Utah. It's not a likely match. The brash Irishman is a Catholic, a brawler and a young man without prospects. Destiny is a sprawling historical novel set at the turn of the 19th century, played out in such far-flung places as New York City, the gold fields of Alaska and Old Mexico.

Vol. II - Conflict: It's 1917 and American has entered World War I. The Callahan's son has joined with what President Woodrow Wilson is calling "the fight to make the world safe for democracy." Set against turbulent events in world history and filled with vivid scenes as well as tender emotions, Conflict takes the reader around the world.

Vol. III - Heritage: Tom and Katrina Callahan's three children have grown up and are making their way in a world that is propelling itself toward World War II. Tess has her heart set on a Hollywood movie career; PJ is a successful sheep rancher in New Zealand and Tommy is pursuing his career in the Marine Corps and learning not only about war, but about the perils of romance. In this, the final volume of Spirit of Union, Gordon Ryan follows Tom and Katrina into their middle and late years. Living in a time when aviation is becoming a viable industry, the stock market is booming and Hitler's evil machinations are on the horizon, the world, and the Callahans, are embroiled on every front. Set in Hawaii, the Dominican Republic, South America, Great Britain and the United States, Heritage is filled with scenes and characters that will linger in your mind long after you close the book.

I've been tracking this bundle, and it has never been 99 cents. It's last price was $6.79.

December 22, 2010 thru at least December 27, it was 99 cents, as I had it featured on my blog the 22nd at that price and finally got around to the sample and bought it on the 27th.

Tracked down at least one message posted by the author about his big sale (was 99 cents for quite some time, but I don't think the entire month he said it would be):

That's normal with self-published works. When the author puts in a price change, both change. The only time you see a difference is if Amazon has changed the price (which they do for some high sellers, but mostly only on those that they caught selling for less thru other stores/outlets or free on websites.

Karen, might I take a moment and clarify your comment about self-published? I have just become a member of MobilReads, so have only now discovered this thread. I am the author of the Spirit of Union series, originally published by a traditional publisher in hardback between 1996 and 1999. Therefore the current edition, while self-published in the sense that I now own all rights to the manuscripts, is actually part of my back list of previously published books.

I have, in fact, self-published several new novels, and intend to expand on the original Spirit of Union series as well. I have retitled the series, The Callahans.

If I can answer any other questions, I would be pleased to do so.
