BooksForABuck.com Newsletter--November, 2010
News and Events
- Welcome to the November edition of the BooksForABuck.com newsletter.
As we move into the holiday season, I know many of you are thinking about gift ideas. An eBook reader would make a great gift. With the lower pricing on Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, and the Sony and Borders models as well, this is a great time to buy. I'm intrigued by the new BN Color Nook although I have to say that most of the words I read are in black and white.

Coming in November:
The Elf-Queen's Bounty by Joshua Calkins-Treworgy. Calkins-Treworgy continues his saga of the fantasy land of Tamalaria with an adventure that unites Portenda the Silent (from The Glove of Shadows) with Shoryu Tearfang from The Dread Knight's Redemption. The bounty hunter and were-coyote hunter take off in search of the thief who stole Shoryu's mystic bow...and learn of a plot that's far deeper and more dangerous than they'd imagined. Look for it about mid-month.
Available in October
THE VAN GOGH DECEPTION by Michael Paulson. Michael Paulson creates a charming story of love, art forgery, diamond theft, and a young American in Paris in this funny and exciting novel. Paulson is best known for his hard-boiled Deacon Bishop series but he's got a talent for writing funny as well. DECEPTION is regularly priced at $3.99, but will be on sale for only $1.00 until November 16, 2010.
