Everybody Wins Today!

The Last Good Man - screen Free is good, right?

I love a good deal, and have I got one for you.  For 2 days—count ‘em, May 17 and 18—you can download THE LAST GOOD MAN free at Amazon.   Don’t have a Kindle?  I don’t either.  You can read it on your computer and store it in your “cloud.”  Archive.  Whatever.  Do it now.  We’ll be here when you get back.

As I said, I love a deal—it smells like victory—which is why I’ve been inhaling Groupon and Living Social e-mails lately.  I’ve discovered local restaurants and shops, bought gifts and services—things I’d wanted to try but not ready to buy.  Price is often the deciding factor.  Besides being an affordable way to try things, I’m guessing that Groupon is an affordable way to advertise and bring in new customers, especially for small businesses.  I’m seeing deals on all kinds of summer activities and lessons lately—sailing, horseback riding, martial arts, ballroom dancing.

My best buy lately was a photo scanning service.  I’m the keeper of the Pierson family pictures, and at one point I’d said I’d have copies made.  That point was long ago.  Technological gizmos have come and gone.  When I saw the Groupon deal last fall, I pounced thinking I’d finally get this done, great Christmas present for my brother and sister.  So I managed to get it done for…let’s see, missed Spring equinox…Ah, Mother’s Day.  I plugged the CD into the machine as soon as the box arrived, and I have to tell you, I am really pleased.  I just sent my sibs their surprise copies—can’t wait to hear their squeals of delight.  Seriously, the California company did a fabulous job, and the deal was a steal.  But I’m already working on my next batch of pictures.  Guess what my adult kids are getting for Christmas?

I had one Groupon buy—a special board game I wanted for a birthday party—that didn’t arrive in a timely fashion.  I contacted Groupon.  They gave me $10 in “Groupon bucks” (the $25 game was $14 with shipping) AND got me the game pronto.  Two thumbs up on the service.

So back to the free download.  It’s a time-sensitive deal, remember, Thursday and Friday only.  But it’s totally free—a fabulous promo from my publisher, Bell Bridge Books.  Why free?  Because free is good.  But so is—if I do say so myself—THE LAST GOOD MAN.  (Check out this new review.)  It was on Library Journal’s “Top 5 Romances of the Year” list.  It’s the only Romance ever (as far as I know) to be a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.  We think you’ll enjoy it.

You Never Can Tell - screen And then we think you’ll come back for the sequel, YOU NEVER CAN TELL, which is Kole Kills Crow’s story.  Coming soon from Bell Bridge Books.

Tell us about the deals you’ve found lately.  Do you Groupon?  How about free downloads—have you discovered great books and new authors that way?

    Love the new covers, Kathy.
    I’ve tried no groupons. Must do. But even THAT takes time, which is not my friend.

    I have tried Groupon, Living Social and EverSave. I have been pleased with the deals that I have gotten. Thank you for the free download. I have found some new to me authors to read through free downloads. 🙂

  4. I’ve done Groupon but not lately. But I am a big “Deal Fangirl!”
    Grabbed your book and tweeted it. Good luck

    Kathleen, congratulations to us! We get your fab book!:) I’ve enjoyed both Groupon and Living Social. Had two not great experiences with groupon and they refunded my purchase and gave me $10 groupon books just like they did you. I’ve given several as gifts — gave my daughter a couple of house cleanings. She works full time so this was a real treat.:)

    • Groupon is GREAT for gifts. I started a Silverado charm bracelet for granddaughter’s 10th birthday using a Groupon. It was a daily deal at a new jewelry shop nearby, so I also discovered a really neat store. Also got her birthday cake with a 1/2 price deal at one of my favorite local bakeries.

    I’m the worst at shopping…maybe because I loathe and detest shopping with a red hot passion otherwise reserved for snakes and rodents. So I wait until I absolutely HAVE to have something and then go in and grab it as quickly as I can and get out again. So no scouting around for the best possible deals…because that takes too much preparation and feels too much like pre-shopping . I told you…I was just born without the shopping gene. Am so envious of all you who find these great deals!

  7. Our daughter has planned her entire wedding trip using Groupon and Living Social deals. She and her new dh will be gone 21 days, moving between five different topnotch resorts in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico (mostly around Cozumel and Cancun), all at half price. They saved a LOT of money!
