The Story of the big sale…
“I LOVE your pocketbook!”
“Oh, my gosh…would you believe I got it for only $14.99?”
And so the conversation begins. The story of how it is a woman is carrying a designer purse she can normally not afford but own because it was purchased while on clearance, plus they had a %50 percent coupon, plus got an additional %20 on top of that because it was loyal customer shopping day.
Women LOVE to tell the tale of the BIG SALE. Which is why I’m THRILLED to announce the 2nd book in the Brothers of Audubon Springs Series, SECONDHAND ROMANCE is ON SALE for $.99 cents exclusively on Kindle starting TODAY through Friday, February 21st. That’s an %80 discount off the digital price without a coupon or a trip to the mall.
All the books in the series hold a special place in my heart for different reasons. Secondhand Romance is special because:
a) It was the first book in the series I sold
b) I get to show my true Jane Austen Fan Girl colors via Annie with the whole…Is Tony a Darcy vs. a Knightley debate, and
c) Annie owns a Secondhand Bookstore. Total DREAM JOB to my line of thinking.
EXCERPT:Here is a snapshot of Tony and Annie discussing the power of a good book.
He glanced at the book she’d left on the counter and picked it up, weighing it in his big hand as if it were a foreign object. “I don’t get it. What is it about a book that so completely captures your attention?”
Annie’s eyes widened. A smile tugged at the corners of her mouth. “Hmmm, no, I don’t think so.”
“What does that mean?”
“It means I’m not going to try to explain this to a non-reader.”
A dark expression flashed across his face. “I read.”
“Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and Playboy do not count.”
“I said I can read!”
“Calm down there, big guy. I’m sure you can read, but I own the only bookstore in town, and I’ve never seen you in here to buy a book. To my way of thinking, that puts you in the category of a non-reader, as in someone who does not read for pleasure.”
“Okay, fine. You’ve got me. Humor me. What is it about a book that completely grabs your attention, leaving your store vulnerable to theft and you to bodily harm?”
Annie regarded him through narrowed eyes, not entirely sure if he was serious or seriously trying to provoke an argument. She found both options interesting. Up until now, they shared very little in the way of one-on-one dialogue. The nature of this question indicated a certain level of contemplation he’d already given on the subject. “You’re not going to let that go, are you?”
“No.” He revealed just the slightest crack of a smile.
I LOVE hearing about the BIG SALE. What are some of your favorite brag-worthy sale purchases? Happy Shopping! 🙂
Secondhand Romance was a great read! If you haven’t got your copy, go get it now! : )
Sales are funny things. I love a bargain but hate shopping. And I hate crowds. My M-I-L was a great shopper, she lived in Manhattan. She’d shop, send me something, tell me how many times it was discounted, and ALWAYS she’d add “and it was the last one, so wear it well.” It used to crack me up.
Awww… that is so sweet!
I love the “and it was the last one, so wear it well” comment. So sweet. My mom and I often share the big sale stories. She scores more than me, but hate to pay full price for anything!
I absolutely adore this book!!! I agree with Robena, I’m not a shopper. I’m a buyer. LOL But, then I have a girly-girl daughter who is starting to change my mind. She’s FUN to shop with and doesn’t let me take stuff out of the basket because I always convince myself not to buy stuff for me. LOL
It’s good you’re being encouraged to buy nice things for yourself. I tend to shop for everyone else first! Thanks for the compliments on Secondhand Romance!
Just got it. Thanks! Loved the first book and I’m looking forward to this one.
Thanks, Emma! I still have Time for Love ready to go on my TBR pile! Hoping to get to it soon!
Loved it at the regular price. Wow, what a bargain!
I know you love a good sale!
I just bought it too and also loved RETURN TO AUBUBON SPRINGS. Can’t wait for this one.
Yes, I’ve been known to brag about how little I’ve paid for something. I don’t shop that much right now, but when I do, I love a bargain!
Love the post.
I hope you enjoy Tony and Annie’s story as much as Rafe and Emma’s!
