Hey gang, Brad Moore here with a quick Saturday post to let you know about a deal that’s good for today only.
As some of you might know, our friends Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch just wrote a book called APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneurâ”How to Publish a Book. Guy is a well-known author and speaker; his last traditionally published book, Enchantment, was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Shawn is our app guy and good friend; he handles apps for Kelby Media Group and has written a few books on iOS development and design as well.
Normally, this book is $9.99 for Kindle, and $16.49 for print. But for today only, Amazon has selected APE as a Kindle Daily Deal, which means it can be yours for only $1.99!
Guy's experience as an author and entrepreneur, combined with Shawn's 4-5 years working for a traditional publisher during the invention of most modern mobile phones and tablets, has resulted in an incredible book that you really should own if you have any interested at all in selling or marketing your work. And at $1.99, it's a steal.
APE is an amazing book with over 208 five-star reviews. It is being praised as "the bible" on modern day publishing. In fact, the most helpful negative review states that the book is great but critiques it on its $9.99 list price. Good thing you can get it at an 80% discount!
This is a deal we just couldn't pass up sharing with the readers of this blog. APE covers more than just novels and ebooks. It teaches you the ins-and-outs of publishing, how to make a book (both ebook and print), how to print a book, how to sell a book, and most importantly: how to position and market yourself after your book has published.
It covers every book genre from the next great American novel to a full color trade book like Scott's photography booksâ”it really does have it all.
Remember, this deal is today only. If you think you might be interested, buy it now and deliver it to your Kindle device later. Because Amazon controls the pricing, we have no idea when it will turn off. It could be exactly 24 hours, or it could end a little early.
Saw this yesterday and I thought these deals might be perfect for someone who got a B&H Photo Gift Certificate for Christmas (or has just been saving up for a D600 or D800). The D600 kits have instant savings of $700 and come with all sorts of goodies (by the way, I have that Oben tripod it comes with and it rocks!).
Here’s the direct links:
Looks like they expire tomorrow. Happy shopping everybody!
