Let’s face it, folks… Black Friday is about as close as you can get to an apocalypse without actually being in an apocalypse. People fight, scream, pepper-spray each other, roam the streets in hordes…
You want to see how you’d do in an apocalypse? Well, hit the stores on Black Friday!
With that in mind, I feel it’s only appropriate that Day Soldiers – a book about an apocalypse – honors this apocalyptic tradition.
However, since I really love my readers, I don’t want you to risk your lives out there. I’ve seen things on Black Friday that would make a barbarian cry. For that reason – in honor of Apocalypse Training Day – the price for Day Soldiers for the Kindle has been dropped from $2.99 to 99 cents, this weekend only.
So instead of experiencing an apocalypse, hop over to Amazon and pick up a fun book about one. And when you finish it, don’t worry, there’s more. It’s the first book in a trilogy, after all.
If you know someone who has an e-reader or is getting one soon, Day Soldiers can be “gifted” to them (just hit the “Send as a Gift” button on the right). You can even set it to deliver on whatever day you want. And for kicks, you can put this in the message: “I got this book about a vampire apocalypse on Apocalypse Training Day!”
In all seriousness, if you’re doing the shopping thing today, have fun but be careful. Of course, if you’re into that whole “support your small businesses” thing, Books From Hale has a total of two employees: My wife and me. Can’t get much smaller than that!
Have a great day folks. I hope today marks the start of a wonderful holiday season for you.
