Daily Deals, December 6

I researched the Avon deals. I’m not sure whether these reflect a new pricing schema or whether this is a temporary thing to drive up rankings. Updated: This is Avon’s official statement:

These lower prices are an experiment, based in part on reader feedback, and are part of our ongoing, overall strategy on a title by title basis.  Looking at pricing is definitely one way to excite readers and grow authors

    Thanks so much for these handy listings!

    The description of Roberta Gellis’s The English Heiress inspired me to look up The Scarlet Pimpernel! (also free – TY Project Guttenberg) Now I have both on my Kindle for cozy evening reading. :)

    I just picked up the rest of the Heiress series by Roberta Gellis at $1.49, plus her Siren Song series for the same price. Now if only they’d drop the Roselynde series down, I’d get them in e-copies also.

    @Frekki: I just did the same thing. I would also like to have Knight’s Honor, Bond of Blood and The Sword and the Swan in ebook editions also. I was very gingerly rereading The Sword and the Swan the other day. My copy is over 30 years old and definitely on the worn side.
