Don’t Buy Decisions Just Yet — Let’s Make It a REAL Sale!

The Globe — now only 99¢ for a limited time

Decisions — now only 99¢ for a limited time

Since Amazon decided to place Decisions on sale, I decided to go a step further.  I just revised the Barnes & Noble Nook and Amazon Kindle prices for both Decisions and The Globe to an astoundingly low 99¢.

It may take several hours for the new prices to be posted on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, so wait until the reduced price is effective before making your purchase of these two exciting murder mysteries.

A few words of warning — The Globe deals with seriously adult themes in a sometimes very graphic manner, so it’s not for the squeamish and definitely not appropriate for youngsters; Decisions is light-hearted fun with a lot of humor, but the language can get a bit rough in places.

Both titles are available for all Amazon Kindle markets, which in addition to the United States include the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Japan, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and India.

For the Barnes & Noble Nook, market availability includes the United States and the European Union (including pricing in the British Pound).

I Guess I’m Having a Sale

Decisions by R. Doug Wicker

Amazon appears to have put my Publishers Weekly reviewed novel Decisions on sale to $2.99 from its listed price of $4.49.  Don’t ask me why or for how long, but if you order it now for you Kindle or Kindle-enabled device you’ll save $1.50.

Here’s what Publishers Weekly had to say about Decisions:

An Agatha Christie inspired confection stays true to its roots, with enough clues and plot twists to keep the reader guessing until the end. Donovan Grant was an air traffic controller until a post-traumatic stress disorder renders him unfit to continue in the profession. He lands the job as pilot for the exclusive Vai Kai resort in the Fiji Islands where trouble arrives in waves. First Donovan starts having inexplicable blackouts, in which he becomes uncharacteristically violent. Then he ferries in a group that includes actress Kelly LaBrecque and her movie producer ex-husband, Sheldon Larsen. Kelly informs Donovan that every person in their group hates Sheldon’s guts. Finally, a hurricane knocks out the lights long enough for the first murder to occur and it looks like Donovan is the guilty party. Kelly, who seems romantically interested in Donovan, jumps to his defense. The novel is airy fun, carried by its two likeable and witty central characters. — manuscript review by Publishers Weekly, an independent organization
