April $1.00 Orbit book and another deal

Is Winterbirth by Brian Ruckley:
Quote:
An uneasy truce exists between the thanes of the True Bloods.

Now, as another winter approaches, the armies of the Black Road march south from their exile beyond the Vale of Stones. For some, war will bring a swift and violent death. Others will not hear the clash of swords or see the corpses strewn over the fields. They will see an opportunity to advance their own ambitions. But all, soon, will fall under the shadow that is descending.

For, while the storm of battle rages, one man is following a path that will awaken a terrible power in him--and his legacy will be written in blood.
It's up on the Sony site now (no banner yet, but if you search for the book the promo price is up.

Annnnnd another promo book, "Afraid" by Jack Kilborn is $1.99, also up on Sony now.

Quote:
ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? YOU WILL BE . . .


Welcome to Safe Haven, Wisconsin. Miles from everything, with one road in and out, this peaceful town has never needed a full-time police force. Until now . . .


A helicopter has crashed near Safe Haven and unleashed something horrifying. Now this merciless force is about to do what it does best. Isolate. Terrorize. Annihilate. As residents begin dying in a storm of gory violence, Safe Haven's only chance for survival will rest with an aging county sheriff, a firefighter, and a single mom. And each will have this harrowing thought: Maybe death hasn't come to their town by accident . . .

I just read the reviews on goodreads about "Afraid," and I think I might be too chicken to buy it...

You got me curious so I checked them out and it certainly sounds kind of interesting.

But I'm skeptical of all those glowing Goodreads reviews, because most of them are written by users who have only reviewed that one book...

"Afraid" sounds good so I'll have to get it.
Hachette stop providing good promotion deals as I am trying to hate you for your previous antics

It's on BoB too, but only for the PDF format. Mobi is full price.

Mobi prices are higher than in other estores (and all are commonly higher that compared to other formats). When they do a discount, most of the time the mobi version isn't available (although it was before the promotions). Now even this 1$ promotion is disregarded: both versions are shown next to eachother. One 1$, the other almost 14,5$.

They just should add a stamp saying "sucker", while at it.

I'll just quit buying from them.

Times like this I love Sony even more. They promptly post any deals. Amazon seems slow on the ball.

If Diesel can lower the mobipocket price, I wonder why can't BoB.
