Beginning now (March 3rd) through March 11th, we’re offering 30% off every single ebook title published by Untreed Reads throughout The Untreed Reads Store. VERY IMPORTANT!!: There is no discount code for this promotion. The 30% off will automatically show up during the last step of the checkout process. . . . Remember that when people purchase through our store they get EPUB, PDF and Kindle versions for just one price! Plus, they can gift a title to someone or send an ebook directly to their Kindle. So begins the announcement from Jay Hartman of Untreed Reads Publishing, home of two stand-alone short story e-chapbooks by me, the steampunkish-mystery VANITAS and Christmas horror I’M DREAMING OF A. . ., plus my dystopic science fiction novelette PEDS. To take advantage, press the picture of any of these in the center column and, as an extra, you’ll also find the New Year’s Eve anthology YEAR’S END: 14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR with its opening story, “Appointment in Time,” also by me.
So what’s the occasion? According to Editor Hartman: Every year, the ebook world celebrates Read An Ebook Week, and this year is certainly no different! This year, the dates of the event are Sunday, March 5th through Saturday, March 11th. Also, he points out, although the discount is only 25%, PEDS and I’M DREAMING OF. . . . are also on sale at DriveThruFiction from March 5 through 11, which can be reached by pressing here. No coupon code is needed for either sale, though the one directly from Untreed Reads seems the better deal.
A quick note to mention that my guest blog, “To PEDS and Beyond: Community and the Writer,” is now live on AReCafe (cf. September 29) and can be seen by pressing here. This was originally published in an earlier version on the Open Book Society in 2012 (see November 28 of that year) on how a writer’s contacts — sales, meeting editors, etc. — forge bonds between him or her and a wider community which, in turn, can lead to more opportunities. The example here is the novelette PEDS, published as a stand-alone ebook by Untreed Reads Publishing, and how it led from and to other Untreed Reads sales* while other, similar associations led to the publication of the poetry book VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE), as well as my Stoker® nominated third fiction collection THE TEARS OF ISIS. Direct links are also provided to OmniLit’s pages on PEDS and the Untreed Reads anthology YEARS END: 14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR with my lead story “Appointment in Time,” from which other titles may be linked to too.
In other news, Grey Matter Press has announced a $10 per paperback sale for Halloween, covering all titles in their current catalog. “This year’s Halloween Fear-ganza . . . includes horror, science fiction and speculative fiction from some of the most acclaimed voices in our genres, as well as the freshest faces to have arrived on the scene. Every Grey Matter Press volume containing exceptional dread-filled work from award-winning authors and bestsellers Jonathan Maberry, Ray Garton, William Meikle, Stephen Graham Jones, JG Faherty, Tim Waggoner and many more are all included.” My own pup in this frightpack is the story “The Artist,” about a butcher who sculpts in meat for banquets and other special occasions, in the 2013 anthology SPLATTERLANDS (cf. February 1, January 28 2015; October 14 2014, et al.), for more on which one may press here. Or for info on the sale in general (which, if you scroll down, also mentions SPLATTERLANDS with a link), press here.
Note though that the sale is only good at Grey Matter Press’s own store and is only for a limited time. And while the precise cutoff date doesn’t seem to be mentioned, my guess is it would be a good idea to take advantage by Halloween.
*The first of those from an original contact through the Short Mystery Fiction Society, which also, years later, led me to the movie/horror anthology REEL DARK and publication there of my story “Marcie and Her Sisters,” for which see May 19, et al.
Credit goes to Jay Hartman of Untreed Reads Publishing for announcing this one, with my novelette PEDS one of the books on sale. But let’s let DriveThruFiction say it in their own words: “To celebrate Science Fiction Month, this title has been marked down by 15% through all of May!” And that’s not all, Nomadic Delirium Press’s anthology A ROBOT, A CYBORG, AND A MARTIAN WALK INTO A SPACE BAR with my tale of a lovelorn toaster, “Toast,” as one of its offerings is also part of the DriveThruFiction May sale. To check them out, for PEDS click here, or A ROBOT, et al. here. And then, to be sure, you can explore around for other science fiction bargains as well.
The announcement is out today that Untreed Reads Publishing is offering 50 percent off on all its ebook titles from now through Christmas Day, December 25. This should include my individual short-story chapbooks VANITAS and (with a Christmas-horror theme to boot!) I’M DREAMING OF A. . . . and the science fiction novelette PEDS. To check it out, press any of the three books’ pictures in the center column or press here. Then, should you wish to order one or more, discount instructions should appear on the final page during the checkout process. (Note that the New Year’s Eve anthology YEAR’S END with my opening story “Appointment in Time” is also on sale, for which the same instructions should apply, or, if one wishes to browse the entire Untreed Reads stock, their store page can be reached by pressing here.)
This just came in from Jay Hartman of Untreed Reads Publications (cf. August 29, et al.): “I just received word from Kobo (http://www.kobobooks.com) that there is a coupon code that is good for the entire month that will give readers 50% off their purchase. That means that every single title by Untreed Reads and all of its distribution clients can be purchased at 50% off with the code, and there is no limit to the number of titles that can be purchased. Of course, any other non-discounted titles are also eligible with the coupon.” There are a few rules — or at least things to know. Books purchased through Kobo are in EPUB format, which means that while they can be read on almost every computer or ebook device in the world — Kobo, in fact, has its own free app that can be used with Nook, Mac, or iPad, etc. — they cannot be read on Kindle or with the Kindle app. Also, if not in the US, there still shouldn’t be any problem — Kobo can be reached by readers from around the world.
I hasten to add, I have three stand-alone short fiction electronic chapbooks in this myself, PEDS, VANITAS, and I’M DREAMING OF A. . ., as well as a story in the Untreed Reads anthology YEAR’S END: 14 TALES OF HOLIDAY HORROR (and I’M DREAMING OF A. . . is a Christmas tale too!), although when I checked out Kobo myself (searching first on “James S. Dorr”) I was unable to find VANITAS until I asked for it specifically by title. (I was also able to find my non-Untreed Reads short fantasy e-chapbook POLUDNITSA and anthologies LIMELIGHT and POST APOCALYPTIC RAIDS with stories by me which I’m assuming are part of the sale too. Also Damnation Books’s TELLING TALES OF TERROR — with introduction by me — by searching for it by title and my e-chapbook THE GARDEN by searching for “James Dorr Garden.”) The pictures of five of these books in the center column here won’t take you to the sale, however — for this one you need to either go directly to Kobo or, better, use the special URL http://bit.ly/16iK9An .
So again the sale is for the entire rest of the month of September. Also, the coupon code to use for all sale purchases is: Sept50
