THE ROOKIE by New York Times best-selling novelist Scott Sigler for just $2.99 for a limited timeTo celebrate the launch of THE STARTER podcast, we're tossing out a limited-time sale price on THE ROOKIE eBook -- just $2.99. What? Did he just say it's three frickin' bucks? Yes. Yes he did. A trio of Washingtons gets you the epic scifi/crime/sports mashup on your Kindle, your Nook, or any other device. Where can you get it?

This is a celebration, and an experiment for Dark Øverlord Media. Within three hours of our price drop, THE ROOKIE was the #1 young-adult sports book on Amazon.com, and was the #2 sports book overall. While we were at it, we knocked THE STARTER eBook down to just $4.99. Get some while the gettin' is good!

ARGH

Totally bought this book five days ago for the original e-book price. I'd be terribly offended if it wasn't for the fact that the book is amazing. I will settle for grunting while I read.

Sorry to make you butt-hurt

That does suck the high hard one. Still, we gotta roll the dice from time to time and experiment with things. Thanks for keeping your outrage to a grunt or two!

Sweet!

Even though I have it on a couple of hardbacks, I don't like reading those for fear of damaging them.  So let's see how this bad boy looks on my iPad!  :-)

It's cold outside,

There's no kind of atmosphere.

I'm all alone more or less

I want to fly far away from here

Fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun

Awwww!

Whatever we have to do to get people reading your work.  I would pay double so that others only pay $2.99.  Why you ask??  Because, when the plaid tanks roll I'm going to be on the winning side.  Yes I am!

Thanks! And toss up Amazon reviews if u got time

We're too small potatoes to get THE ROOKIE hardcover and eBook linked, so 100+ reviews for the hardcover are not showing up on the Kindle side. Toss up a review on that Kindle version if y'all have a chance.

Well DAMNIT!  LOL, I just

 

Well DAMNIT!  LOL, I just bought The Starter for $7.99 -- ah well, it was a phenominal book, well worth it!! I did just pick up the Rookie though, I've read it in HC, but thought what the hell, it'll look good next to the Starter on my Nook!!

Sorry 'bout that

We're a small business and we have to try different things from time to time. Glad you snagged THE ROOKIE, though. It all works out in the end. Except for in my books, of course, then you'd just be dead.

Bought books, never recv'd an e-mail?

Anyone report any problems getting the books? I was told that I'd get an e-mail explaining how to download the ebooks, but I never did. Both payments hit my credit card, though. I supplied the e-mail address using my clipboard utility, so I know it's not a typo on my part. Any ideas? Thanks!

The 2.99 transforms to 5.74 when in the boonies

I've got the hard backs already, but how sweeeet it would be to also have'em on my Kindle.

And behold - our FDO decides to tempt me further by dropping the price to a measly 2.99USD - so: on to Amazon, but wtf??? On 'my' Amazon the price is 5.74USD.

Livin' in the boonies suuuucks

Had to have it, so I went to BackMyBook instead of Amazon and bought the epub version - and for only 2.99!

ahhhhhh - the goodness...
