Okay – so let’s start with the big news.
I’ve been using my Kobo Mini since Christmas and I haven’t had a cause to complain. The e-reader is solid, lightweight and I can read it on the bus on my way to work. I read it over my breakfast. I have even read it in the bathroom.
But you didn’t really need to know that last bit of information, now did you?
The Kobo Mini works like a dream.
And at $39.99 e-book reading has NEVER been so cheap before.
Now – while I’ve got your attention and you are thinking about how much money you can save by buying a Kobo Mini – why don’t I talk a little bit more about saving money through e-reading.
Let me tell you about FLASH VIRUS OMNIBUS.
(oh shoot, you are saying, I knew I wasn’t getting through this blog entry without a commercial SOMEWHERE along the way)
And you’d be right.
Let’s get one thing clear. It is in incredibly poor form for an author to review their own work – so this is NOT a review.
This is just me, saying “Hey”.
I wanted to mention that I’ve been releasing this novel – episode by episode – for the last half a year or so. This omnibus is a complete stand-alone novel.
Each episode – on it’s own – sells for $2.49 on the Kobo site.
That price will be going up to $2.99 in July.
Right now – as I write this “not-a-review” (it’s June 21, 2013) – you can buy this Omnibus – which is five complete episodes – for a mere $4.99.
In July this price will go up to $6.99.
For those folks out there who use a Kindle – I’ve got it there too. And the same price change is GOING to happen in July.
I’ve got it on Nook – but it’s already $6.99 there.
So – in simple math right now if you pick up the first episode (which is ALWAYS free) and the following four episodes separately – you will spend $9.96.
If you pick up the Omnibus – which is ALL FIVE EPISODES IN ONE – you will spend $4.99.
You wait until July and that will tally up as $11.96 for the five separate episodes or $6.99 for the Omnibus.
Thus endeth the arithmetic lesson.
