Kindle Daily Deals: Nonfiction, Romance, Fantasy and a Kids' book!


Here's today's Kindle Daily Deal, available for $1.99 today!

APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur-How to Publish a Book, by Guy Kawasaki.

"Nuts, bolts, and inspiration too. Once again, Guy delivers, kicking the shiitake out of anyone who would tell you that you shouldn't, wouldn't or couldn't write a book."
-Seth Godin
Author and founder of The Icarus Project.
This version of APE was updated with the most recent content, facts, figures, tools, and resources on Jan 25th, 2013. To see what content has been added since the last update of APE please visit apethebook.com/updates. This is version 1.1 (Austen).
In 2011 the publisher of one of my books, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies of the book. Because of this experience, I self-published my next book, What the Plus!, and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process. As Steve Jobs said, "There must be a better way."

With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, I wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers. APE's thesis is powerful yet simple: filling the roles of Author, Publisher and Entrepreneur yields results that rival traditional publishing. We call this "artisanal publishing"--that is, when writers who love their craft control the publishing process and produce high-quality books.

APE is 300 pages of step-by-step, tactical advice and practical inspiration. If you want a hype-filled, get-rich-quick book, you should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you want a comprehensive and realistic guide to self-publishing, APE is the answer.

Here's today's Daily Romance Deal, available for $1.99 today!

Lost In Italy, by Stacey Joy Netzel.

2012 WINNER Write Touch Readers' Award ~ Romantic Suspense
~
The best laid plans...

Halli Sanders spent two years planning the trip of a lifetime to Italy. Her itinerary did not include being stranded by her siblings, kidnapped by a sexy American movie star, dodging bullets, or fleeing criminals in a car chase around Lake Como. And that's just in the first three hours.

...often go awry.

Trent Tomlin put his movie career on hold to investigate his brother's murder-ruled-suicide at his Italian villa. He's closing in on the suspects when an American tourist unwittingly films the murder of the retired cop helping him. The killers will stop at nothing to get the evidence--including holding Halli's family as collateral.

Life's a little different unscripted.

Thrust into the role of real-life hero, Trent finds himself falling for the Plain Jane whose beauty blossoms with every challenge they face. But how can he keep the evidence from the murderers to get justice for his brother and friend without betraying Halli and her family?


364 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 130 reviews. Kindle Owner's Lending Library, Text to Speech, X-Ray, Lending enabled.



Here's today's Daily Science Fiction/Fantasy Deal, available for $1.99 today!

The Bone House (Bright Empires), by Stephen R. Lawhead.

Kit Livingstone met his great-grandfather Cosimo in a rainy alley in London where he discovered the truth about alternate realities.
Now he’s on the run—and on a quest—trying to understand the impossible mission he inherited from Cosimo: to restore a map that charts the hidden dimensions of the multiverse. Survival depends on staying one step ahead of the savage Burley Men.
The key is the Skin Map—but where it leads and what it means, Kit has no idea. The pieces have been scattered throughout this universe and beyond.

Mina, from her outpost in seventeenth-century Prague, is quickly gaining both the experience and the means to succeed in the quest. Yet so are those with evil intent who, from the shadows, are manipulating great minds of history for their own malign purposes.
Those who know how to use the ley lines have left their own world behind to travel across time and space—down avenues of Egyptian sphinxes, to an Etruscan tufa tomb, into a Bohemian coffee shop, and across a Stone Age landscape where universes collide—in this, the second quest to unlock the mystery of The Bone House.

The Bright Empires series—from acclaimed author Stephen R. Lawhead—is a unique blend of epic treasure hunt, ancient history, alternate realities, cutting-edge physics, philosophy, and mystery. The result is a page-turning, adventure like no other.

401 pages, with a 4.0-star rating from 109 reviews. Text to Speech, X-Ray, enabled. Whispersync for Voice audiobook available for $8.45 if you purchase this book.

A Dog's Life, by Caroline R. Sherman.

From morning till night, a dog’s life is very busy. He wakes people up. He welcomes visitors. He washes dishes. He keeps humans warm. Without a dog around, how would a family get through the day' This wonderfully endearing text by debut author Caroline Sherman is matched with adorable digital artwork by Donald Wu.

24 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 5.0 reviews. Kindle Owner's Lending Library, Lending enabled.
