Black Friday Sale

Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving!

The wife says I have too many copies of my books around the house, so I'm having a sale.

I've been selling books on my website for years. Hardcovers are $24. Trade paperbacks are $14. Shipping averages about $4 per book.

But in the interest of clearing out some inventory, I'm selling autographed copies at near cost, and the shipping is on me.

By clicking on a button, you'll be taken to a Paypal cart. Paypal, of course, is 100% safe and free to use, and you can pay via check, credit card, or with your bank account.

Package #1 - The Jack Daniels Collection






$119.95

This set includes signed, hardcover copies of Whiskey Sour, Bloody Mary, Rusty Nail, Dirty Martini, Fuzzy Navel, and Cherry Bomb, for $119.95. This includes shipping.

The cover price for these is $144, plus $18 shipping. So this is a savings of of $42, plus I'll include a signed, numbered limited edition paperback copy of Serial by Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch.

Seven books in all, some of them out of print, all autographed.

Package #2 - The Self Pub Collection







$99.95

This set includes eight of my recently self-published trade paperbacks: Origin, The List, Shot of Tequila, Disturb and Others, Trapped, Endurance, Jack Daniels Stories, and Horror Stories. All are professional formatted, 9"x6", about 300 pages each, autographed by me. I'm also including a hardcover copy of These Guns For Hire, a hitman anthology I edited, featuring stories by David Morrell, Lawrence Block, me, and 28 others.

The cover price for these is $140, plus $18 shipping. So this is a savings of $58.

That's nine books in all.

Package #3 - Everything






$219.95

Have you ever had the desire to own everything I've ever published, all at once? Has someone on your holiday list had that desire?

Now is your golden opportunity to get signed copies of EVERYTHING.

This includes hardcover copies of Whiskey Sour, Bloody Mary, Rusty Nail, Dirty Martini, Fuzzy Navel, Cherry Bomb, and These Guns For Hire, and trade paper copies of Origin, The List, Shot of Tequila, Disturb and Others, Trapped, Endurance, Jack Daniels Stories, and Horror Stories. Plus a signed, numbered copy of Serial, and a signed copy of Draculas.

That's seventeen autographed books, and shipping is included.

I've seen signed copies of some of my hardcovers sell for more than seventy bucks. This is a great opportunity to get my entire print catalog, everything autographed, and save over $80 off cover price, plus save the $28 shipping cost.

Of course, if you already have some of my books, you can order the others one at a time on my www.jakonrath.com/store.htm page. Buy any five books, get a sixth for free. The sixth book has to be the lowest price. Just contact me to let me know which one you want for free by putting FREE BOOK in the heading of your email.

Or, if you've been waiting for ereaders to become cheap enough to buy, on Black Friday Amazon.com begins selling their remaining stock of Kindle 2 readers for $89. Hmm... I recall someone saying that was going to happen eventually.

Happy holidays! This sale will continue until I take down the links for it.

Wow, that's awesome. I hope one day to be surrounded by stacks of my own books. So long as there's no dust on them.

Also thanks for a practical demonstration of the Paypal method you mentioned in the last post.

Thumper said...

Not sure if it's intentional or not, but clicking on the paypal links doesn't automatically add anything to a shopping cart or connect to your email as a payee address... I'll be all over package #3, but I want to make sure of where to Paypal the funds...

Joe Konrath said...

The Paypal links should be fine now. It was an HTML problem.

Mystery Dawg said...

Hey Joe,

where is the layaway installment plan? LOL

Thumper said...

Awesome! Thanks for doing this!

How about a contest to give away package #3? ;)

How about a contest to give away package #3?

I love that idea. I'll let you run the contest, Jude. Paypal me $219.95, and you can pick the contest terms and then ship the books you bought to whoever wins. :)

Peter Andrew Leonard said...

Joe, will shipping stuff to Canada be included in the "free shipping"?

Number three sounds like a damn good deal.

Joe Konrath said...

@Peter - I'll ship ground to Canada for free, but that probably won't arrive in time for the holiday.

Steve said...

Jude, how do I enter your contest for package #3?

Jude Hardin said...

I'll let you run the contest, Jude. Paypal me $219.95, and you can pick the contest terms and then ship the books you bought to whoever wins.

I'll do that, but to be eligible each entrant has to pre-order a copy of Pocket-47. ;)

What a great contest!

Thumper said...
