Tracking Kindle book prices - automatic alerts and price drop info

Hey everyone.

Hopefully this is ok....

If its not, please feel free to nuke it!

We just wrapped up development of a new tool that lets you track the prices of Kindle books.

Just pop in the details (ISBN, author, title, random associated key words ... etc) and we'll let you know what we find that's Kindle related on Amazon. From there, just put in the price you want ... You know, under the price of a hardcover

And then sit back. We'll alert you when it hits that price or below. We also chart the history so you see if you can trend it like stocks and see if you need to cry Uncle and pony up the $$$.

Feel free to give us (any) comments. It's in that kinda-sorta-beta-but-not-really-we-just-call-it-that phase.

Looks like you beat me to the punch while I was editing the post!

Just trying to share a tool. If it works - or doesnt, let us know.

We're interested in feedback!

And thanks for not crucifying me too bad on missing the link the first time around

Ok.

Now I am going to step away since I FINALLY managed to get the link.

Apparently a career in just randomly spewing links is not in my future. Don't hire me for your campaign. People won't know where to go!

I'll come back in a bit and see what else I hosed up!

Sure thing.

I was checking the logs and saw someone tried :

Daniel Suarez Daemon

Good one!

Daniel Suarez brings up results
Daemon brings up results

(and the ones that user wanted..)

But the three together doesnt match on all.

Nice bug

We'll take a look at that!

This looks pretty cool so far. Then I don't have to check the books I want every day!
