Lucky for you Blue I tried again this month but still no go, I went through trouble shooting it with a Poison Pen Rep last month and we couldn't get it to work the reason I was given from PP was that my bank doesn't do address matching, I'm with Westpac. So I purchase from kobo instead I would prefer to go direct as I assume the author gets more of a cut then but no go for me.

Westpac suck eh? Mine is not with them, so could be.

Maybe you could get one of those gift card credit cards from another bank and use that for books?

This month has some v. interesting-looking books, so I caved and bought nine of them. I think I'm most excited about Lipstick and Lies-- I've never read a mystery with a lady spy/pilot from WWII! I hope it's good.

I have an HSBC credit card so I am hoping this will work, but did someone mention that they also have Paypal? This would solve all the credit card problems.

New batch of 11 of these.

Some promising-looking historicals and comedic contemporaries, plus a really nifty-sounding guide to female sleuths through the ages. The Chet Atkins one still says $6.99 on the page, but becomes $0.99 in the cart, though be sure to check before checking out, just in case.

PPP now have another $10.89 USD of my money and I may even have enough leisure time to read one or two before the end of the month this time around.

Thanks. The non-fiction one did sound good enough to get. Plus the Pest Control assassin shenanigans.

I couldn't resist Pest Control, The Reunion, The Poet's Funeral, and The Coffin Trail.

This morning I also bought (pre-order) Death of a Gossip, the first of the Hamish Macbeth series for $2.99.

I'll probably break down and buy a few more PPP ebooks later this month. It is both good and bad that the sale lasts for weeks.

I basically just buy the lot of what they offer each during the promo each month. I figure I'm supporting a DRM-free small publisher who do generally quality work and even if I end up not really liking half the books, $4.95 for 5 recent works at 99 cents each is basically pocket change which I can afford to spend.

Also, the women sleuth guide is pretty good so far. Only covers from 1900-to-1970s, but gives a decent description of books which star or have strong supporting female characters doing sleuthing, a little blurb on the contents of the stories, and a bit at the end about the quality/potential interest of the writing (doesn't hesitate to point out retro WTFery and flat characters). Some of the synopses may be a bit spoilery as to series character developments and who gets killed in the course of the story (no spoilers for whodunnit thus far), but overall a good intro and overview if you think you might want to track down some vintage mystery/crime to read.

Thank you for the info about the book list and the non-fiction. As Poisoned Press doesn't like my cards, I'll buy them at Kobo.
