And the answer is: Yes, we did. Last week. But Open Road Media is putting The Iron Dragon's Daughter on e-sale again. $1.99 on this Wednesday, April 1, only. I don't have to tell you what holiday that is. But apparently they really mean it.
I expect most people who read this blog and wanted an e-copy of that book got one during last week's sale. But I publicize the event for two reasons:
1) Writers should always be as cooperative to their publishers as they can stand being.
2) Maybe the reason for this promotion is that they're putting a lot of books on sale at once.
If you're an ebook reader, you might want to look into the second possibility. Or maybe subscribe to one of the newsletters below.
Here's the e-letter they sent me, with all the boilerplate:
