Exclamation Free (Kindle DRM-free) Arkfall by Carolyn Ives Gilman [Nebula Nominee SF Novella]

Phoenix Pick Press's new release Tuesday KDP Select exclusive-or-else slushpile overload offering is a 2009 Nebula Award Nominee sf novella.

Arkfall by Carolyn Ives Gilman, whose credentials I have no time to add because I've got 30 minutes to wash and catch my bus.

The tie-in deal is for Gilman's novel, which was previously offered free at the beginning of this round of promotions, as well as a couple of years ago, but if you don't already have it or want an ePub/Mobi bundle or otherwise want to support the author, then $3.99 is probably not a bad price to pay for Halfway Human, available directly from Phoenix Pick Press via the promo page here.

Free for the next two days @ Amazon main UK DE ES FR IT

Description
Nominated for the Nebula Award.

Humans live deep within an apparently lifeless planet covered by massive ice sheets. Having to survive in confined spaces has bred a unique culture where deference and non-confrontation make co-existence possible.

Osaji’s opportunities are limited by the need to care for her aging grandmother. But all that is about to change as circumstances push her toward a journey like no other.

Is anyone able to reach the Phoenix pages? All I get is an ad for an ISP or 404 errors.

If anyone grabbed the bundle earlier, do you have the cart link for the special?

Thanks, that works (and that site was up even when Phoenix was down).

Speaking of which, Phoenix seems to be back online now.

The rain did that for me. One of the many benefits of living on BC's decidedly misnamed "Sunshine Coast", where the clouds think we are pod persons who need to be watered daily.

I can't figure out why they are offering Halfway Human as their half off deal this week when they offered it for free just back on April 10th and 11th. Usually it's been a book that wasn't already offered for free.

It's their only other title by Gilman and it's been over a month, so people might have missed the previous freebie and be willing to splurge now that HH is apparently out of KDP Select and thus unlikely to be freebied again or be "free" via the Prime Lending Library.

It may not be the most intuitive marketing move, but it does make sense. "Missed it earlier? Catch up for for a discount price!" Although I'd have expected it to go for a greater discount (50% off or more) in consideration of the recent offer.

Ah. Good point. The fact it's only 50% off rather than more might have something to do with their deal with the author I guess. She has to reach a certain amount of sales profit etc. Who knows.
