June is a difficult month for punning. I’m sure there’s a clever June Cleaver or Benny & Joon reference I could drop that would perfectly sum up last month’s goings-ons, but frankly I’m too lazy to Google it. So here, in all its SEO-friendly glory, is some writin’ stuff.

As my mother and three other people may recall, I did the Kindle Countdown thing with A World Gone Gray last month. In my heart of arrhythmically-lub-dubbing hearts, I was hoping to hit double figures in sales\borrows for June, based almost exclusively on the aforementioned promotion.

Oh, so close.

All in all, though, I was pleased with the Countdown promo. There was a noticeable spike in interest in AWGG, and, for some strange reason (perhaps my terminal case of dorkiness), I found it just plain fun. Something different. However, my half-baked master plan of flooding Amazon with elaborate, multi-pronged assaults on potential readers by offering all of my wares at discounted prices next to an honest-to-goodness down-counting clock went a bit awry when I took a look at the fine print. It seems the good folks at Amazon aren’t too keen on you abusing their promotional tools.

Damn.

So, allow me to introduce you to Plan B. No, not that Plan B. This one…

Perhaps you’ve thought to yourself, “Hey, Self. I find you strangely attracted to A World Gone Gray’s lovely cover, engaging characters, and thought-provoking premise. But we aren’t enrolled in Kindle Unlimited, and I don’t think we can spare $3.99 on 112,000 words of post-apocalyptic fiction this month, what with the kids’ diapers and the faulty transmission on the Mazda and such.”

Yeah. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Well, I’m here to cure all that ails you. Okay, that’s a bit hyperbolastic, but isn’t everything? Sales pitch forthwith:

Coming this Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday! A beast not seen in over eighteen months! A gargantuan collection of characters, words, paragraphs, and chapters! All for the practically undetectable sum of 99¢!

But there’s a catch, as is often the case.

A World Gone Gray is only (only) 99¢ for 24 hours. Sad but true. However, all is not lost; it’s $1.99 on Wednesday and $2.99 on Thursday. On Friday, though, it reverts to its heinous, unthinkable, outright ungodly everyday price of $3.99. The horror…

The sale begins at the completely arbitrary time of 8AM PST on Tuesday, June 16th and ends at the equally arbitrary time of 8AM PST on Friday, June 19th. Here’s the breakdown of events:

8AM PST Tuesday, June 16th-8AM PST Wednesday, June 17th: A World Gone Gray is 99¢

8AM PST Wednesday, June 17th-8AM PST Thursday, June 18th: A World Gone Gray is $1.99.

8AM PST Thursday, June 18th-8AM PST Friday, June 19th: A World Gone Gray is $2.99.

8:01AM PST Friday, June 19th: A World Gone Gray turns back into a pumpkin.

Still, that’s a full 72 hours of savings!

Go forth and save!
