If you will follow the path below, you can find find ebooks with "narration for $3.99 or less." Then, if you sort the hits from low to high, theoretically you will find the less expensive books (Amazon's "low to high" sort doesn't work well for some reason .

The path is "Kindle Store : Whispersync for Voice: Add Narration for $3.99 or Less". You may have to select "Add Narration for $3.99 or Less" from the menu on the far left side of the webpage.

Three quick points:

- Near the bottom of some of the webpages with hits, there is a statement, "This search may have been filtered to remove less relevant results. Click here to include these items in your results". You may need to click there to find more results.

- Unfortunately, the page with the hits gives the prices of the ebooks, but not prices of the audiobooks. You've got to click on one of the links for the ebook to find out the the price for the audio of that particular book. But, the website is, after all, an ebook site (Amazon), not an audiobook site (Audible).

- It does take a little effort to navigate to the page where you can start doing the searching. If you like what you see there, be sure to bookmark the webpage where you can start doing the searching.

Happy bargain hunting.

$5.98 WS Deal! Maximum Influence: The 12 Universal Laws of Power Persuasion.

The author is Kurt Mortensen.

This is the best WS deal that I've seen on a non-Kindle exclusive in quite some time.

Description
Salespeople, consultants, managers, executives, entrepreneurs. . . Influence is a crucial tool for absolutely anyone seeking success and prosperity. But how can everyday people actually become more influential? Maximum Influence unlocks the secrets of the master influencers. Now in an all-new edition, the book combines scientific research with real-world studies, presenting the most authoritative and effective arsenal of persuasion techniques ever. Author and renowned expert Kurt Mortensen reveals the 12 Laws of Persuasion, explaining why each law works, how to use it, and what to avoid. You will learn about the law of dissonance, the law of contrast, the law of expectation-and nine other proven principles that consciously and unconsciously propel people to act. You will also discover how to: * Read anyone instantly * Get people to trust you instinctively * Change minds easily * And convince anyone to give you almost anything With new case studies and cutting-edge influencing techniques, this is the ultimate guide to the art and science of getting exactly what you want-when you want.

The total price of the deal breaks down like this: $1.99-ebook + $3.99-audio narration; total--$5.98.

This is a highly rated book, with 5.0(4) at Amazon, and 3.71(52) at GoodReads (a generally harder-to-please crowd, in my experience).

I've noticed that a lot of the cheaper WS deals lately are cheap because they're skimpy on the number of pages in the book (=a skimpy amount of listening time). This book isn't skimpy--it has 256 pages.

If you decide to buy, you can go here to get the whole deal.

$2.98 TOTAL for WS Deal about Woman Overcoming Mao Ze Dong"s (sp?) Labor Camps . . .

. . . . with Her Piano.


The Secret Piano: From Mao's Labor Camps to Bach's Goldberg Variations. Author: Zhu Xiao-Mei; Translator: Ellen Hinsey

Description
Zhu Xiao-Mei was born to middle-class parents in post-war China, and her musical proficiency became clear at an early age. Taught to play the piano by her mother, she developed quickly into a prodigy, immersing herself in the work of classical masters like Bach and Brahms. She was just ten years old when she began a rigorous course of study at the Beijing Conservatory, laying the groundwork for what was sure to be an extraordinary career. But in 1966, when Xiao-Mei was seventeen, the Cultural Revolution began, and life as she knew it changed forever. One by one, her family members were scattered, sentenced to prison or labor camps. By 1969, the art schools had closed, and Xiao-Mei was on her way to a work camp in Mongolia, where she would spend the next five years. Life in the camp was nearly unbearable, thanks to horrific living conditions and intensive brainwashing campaigns. Yet through it all Xiao-Mei clung to her passion for music and her sense of humor. And when the Revolution ended, it was the piano that helped her to heal. Heartbreaking and heartwarming, The Secret Piano is the incredible true story of one woman’s survival in the face of unbelievable odds—and in pursuit of a powerful dream.


I bought the ebook a while back (I paid $1.99; it's $0.99 today ). Anyway, for some reason, I didn't spring for the audio narration then. I sprang for it today--it's $1.99. Add $0.99 and $1.99 and you get $2.98--that's the price that you can get the WS deal for today (ebook + audio narration + sync'ing benefit!).

The ratings for the ebook are great--4.3 stars (602) at Amazon; 3.92 (1,986) at GoodReads

Even if you forget the ebook and the sync'ing, you still have the Audible audiobook for $2.98! What a deal!

Get the whole WS deal at the Amazon webpage for the book.


My homily for the day (a repeat):
The book is a Kindle exclusive.

Amazon has rather quietly become a huge publisher, with boo koos (a colloquial American and British English word--probably a corruption of the French beaucoup, meaning "many") of imprints.

We often think that good WS deals have almost dried up. They have--except for those of the Amazon imprints. No, you can't find some specific titles that you're interested in, but you can find WS deals beginning at $2.98 (and perhaps less). If you're just interested in some good stuff to read, and especially to listen to, I encourage you to sign up for the Kindle exclusives emails.

$3.48 for WS Deal on the #1 Seller in Gothic Romance--The Matrimonial Advertisement.

It's taken a while, but I've finally found a respectably-priced WS deal.

The #1 seller in Gothic Romance, at Amazon.

Author is Mimi Matthews. It's a self-pub. Don't shy away because of that--the book's got a 4.6-star rating, from 118 reviews, at Amazon.

This is Book 1 of Matthews' Parish Orphans of Devon series.

It has 388 pages.

The Description
She Wanted Sanctuary...

Helena Reynolds will do anything to escape her life in London, even if that means traveling to a remote cliffside estate on the North Devon coast and marrying a complete stranger. But Greyfriar's Abbey isn't the sort of refuge she imagined. And ex-army captain Justin Thornhill--though he may be tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome--is anything but a romantic hero.

He Needed Redemption...

Justin has spent the last two decades making his fortune, settling scores, and suffering a prolonged period of torture in an Indian prison. Now, he needs someone to smooth the way for him with the villagers. Someone to manage his household--and warm his bed on occasion. What he needs, in short, is a wife and a matrimonial advertisement seems the perfect way to acquire one.

Their marriage was meant to be a business arrangement and nothing more. A dispassionate union free from the entanglements of love and affection. But when Helena's past threatens, will Justin's burgeoning feelings for his new bride compel him to come to her rescue? Or will dark secrets of his own force him to let her go?


In case anyone cares, here's how the total cost of $3.48 breaks down: ebook $1.49 + audio $1.98.

Link to the book.

$3.98 Whispersync Deal for Sci-Fi Lovers--Theresa Kay's Broken Skies.

First g8 WS deal that I've seen in a while . . . .

Broken Skies, by Theresa Kay. Book 1 of 3 in the 3-book Sci-Fi Broken Skies series.

$0.99--ebook + $2.99--audio narration = $3.98 WS deal! The audio, alone, at Audible is $17.95 (non-member price). That means that this WS deal is a good deal, but with the ebook's 297 pages, and a correspondingly-lengthed audio narration, there's lots of "bang for the buck."

Description
An uneasy alliance between Jax and an alien boy turns into a connection neither of them expected… and the bond between them could be the catalyst for an inter-species war.

When Jax Mitchell’s twin is kidnapped by Earth's alien settlers, the E'rikon, she'll do anything to get him back—even team up with a teenage alien left behind by the same ship that took her brother.

Jax agrees to act as a guide, and in return, the alien agrees to sneak her into the E'rikon city. Too bad it's not that simple. Jax soon finds that she's drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales on his back—and he's equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn't know the alien's true motives, and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems.

With the aliens and the humans at odds, the connection forming between the two teens has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets in motion a chain of events that threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but Earth itself.
