DA Weekly Deals: 29+ Books Under $2.99

We apologize for the delay of the “weekly” deals! We originally thought we would publish this weekly but we will be changing publishing it every two weeks instead. The sale list is not changing as quickly plus it is time consuming. Please check our previous 29+ books under $2.99 post, for many of them still have sale pricing. We will continue to try and hone this process and make it valuable for you. We will be updating the list tonight with links to the other purchasing sites. Thank you for your patience!


And Orbit’s digital ebook drop this month is a Amazon of Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series for $9.99 which comes out to $3.33 per book, a little more than our $2.99 limit, but still a good deal.

    Thank you for the list! I can’t wait to go home and look these books up!

    Any reader recommendations from the list? (besides the ones already recommended by DA). I’ve only read the books by Wisdom (ok read) and Dane (love her!).

    Btw, Never a Bride by Amelia Grey is currently free on the kindle. Also, two books by Joanne Kennedy and one by Carolyn Brown and Stephanie Laurens has no price next to the titles.

    Thanks for the the list. I’m super excited Lord of Scoundrels is on there.

    I loved the Widow’s War – it was beautifully written and really engaging. Also glad that I can read Lord of Scoundrels for $.99 – that book is constantly recommended…

    Thank you so much for doing this – great post!

    I can’t tell you how grateful I am that you take the time and effort to make these lists.

    I have LoS in paperback, but didn’t hesitate getting it again at this price! I’ve been wanting it for my Kindle, so I can change the font. I’m afraid my eyes just don’t ‘take’ to that small print anymore. :-(

    I really appreciate this.

    Thank you so much for this list! I was able to pick up Lord of Scoundrels for 99c at and got it loaded onto my Sony reader. The Sony ebook store still had it at full price. I’m bummed that my purchase won’t count toward next week’s top ten list.

    The best part about it? It’s got the old school cover! I have it in paperback with that cover and LOVE it. It makes me grin every time Jessica and Dain sprawled in the field of flowers.

    Thanks for this list. One of the books was on my wish list and I got it for $1.99!

    I was getting despondent – only 1 of the first 10 books listed is available to us Aussies.
    Fortunately things picked up from there, so that overall 18 out of 37 are available, and 4 out of the 5 freebies.
    Thanks for the list!

    Thanks for the list — I’ve bought some books I was flip-flopping over. But my message to Agency publishers is that it doesn’t have to be all (.99!) or nothing (12.99!) If authors like JQ and Loretta Chase had backlists up for 4.99 or 5.99 I would gobble them up in a heart beat.

    Books on Board is also selling Lord of Scoundrels for 99 cents. Is their ePub version different from the BN/Sony/Kobo versions? I’m reading on my computer and phone, but would like to access this on an e-reader eventually.

    @Chris: You have more patience than me, I managed to get a couple of the freebies, but then struck out on the first four of the deals. Buh

    @jubee: BN is a different epub, but the epubs from Sony, Kobo, and BoB are the same, I believe.

    I love this! Thanks so much for taking the time to pull this together.

    Have you mentioned in previous posts that many of Marsha Canham’s backlist titles are available in e-book for $2.99 (including one of my all-time favorite swashbucklers, The Wind & the Sea)?

    @Jen We haven’t because I think that is her general pricing. We are trying to point out the temporary price reductions otherwise I think we would have too many books in the list.
