Counting up money as though it meant something

Because I like sales, too: The Healers’ Road will have a Kindle Countdown Deal in the US and UK from Dec. 21 to 27, 2014. In the US this means that the price will drop to $0.99 on Sunday, click up to $1.99 in the middle of the week, and resume its usual price of $2.99 at the end of the week. In the UK there’s just one stage, £0.99 from the 21st-27th and back to £1.99 at the end of the week.

Related-but-not-in-an-obvious-fashion, THR should be available at the Kobo store and other ebook retailers in mid-January. Amazon has an exclusivity clause for three months, and that’s when it expires. It’s not unlike the platform-exclusives in video games, in which one platform will get a title three months ahead of the others.

One might think that the Amazon version should have Link as a playable character or something. Such, however, is not the case. Instead, we get a sale. And sales are still good.
