You write: "...but all popular formats(.lit, mobi and pdf) are $1.00 at diesel-ebooks."


Diesel-ebooks price for the Weeks title is $7.06 (or $6.81 for the next title). This price is in all of their four formats.

I've been unable to find the books for $1.00 at Diesel-ebooks.

On Books on Board, for the Weeks's title I find this:

The Way of Shadows
by Brent Weeks
(List) $7.99 - (Savings) $1.24 = (Price) $6.75


Perhaps you have different information than I do?

I just checked BoB and the title is 85 cents after rewards (but only as ADE,not really PDF, lit and ereader). Those wanting mobi format get a better deal at fictionwise (5.09 vs 6.75 after rewards at both sites).

I found it by clicking on one of their ads banners it show $1. Also from the search page you see $6.81 but if you click on it, it's $1

I am glad you found it
I gotta give you guys the thrill of discovery rather than pointing you straight to it.
Diesel was easy as there was a big banner at the bottom of the page but I had to search on BooksonBoard and found it was also $1.00( well actually $0.85).
It is obviously a publisher special that fictionwise hasn't been invited to yet

This is now on sale at fictionwise, all formats - 75 cents after rebate, 64 cents for club members. Too bad I bought it two months ago.

This is ridiculous. BoB doesn't sell the book to my country. Diesel had no such problem, so I bought it over there.

The other books don't have this promotion, so if I like this book, I might try to buy the others in BoB, changing the country of residence. If not possible, Diesel will have a new regular client.

It looks as though it's part of a special promotion by Orbit who are offering a different ebook each month for $1. Details here http://www.onedollarorbit.com/
Next month's is Iain Banks excellent Use of Weapons.

It's part of a scam. I bought the book for $.64 and now had to go back to FW and buy the other two in the series. <Laugh> Almost spent all of my micropay rebate money and then I'll have to get my arse back to work to earn more book money.

It's called marketing. That is the reason they are selling these books for $1.

Yes I understand I was trying to be funny. These types of sales get me all the time, I'm in marketing but they still get me. <G>
