Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)
Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter, Facebook, and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.

There has been a lot of interest in my two previous posts (here and here) on the availability of Ed McBain’s popular 87th Precinct mysteries. So, fans of police procedurals may be as excited as I was to read on Ed Goreman’s blog that Hard Case Crime will be publishing two lost novels by Ed McBain, both of which have been unavailable for over 50 years.
The two books are Cut Me In and So Nude, So Dead. So Nude, So Dead will be released in July 2015. Cut Me In is scheduled for release in January 2016. Sample chapters of both books are available on Hard Case Crime’s website.
And, there’s more good news! According to Goreman:
… The same month, Hard Case Crime will also re-issue its one previous McBain title, THE GUTTER AND THE GRAVE, for the first time ever in trade paperback format. CUT ME IN is scheduled for a January 12, 2016 publication and will feature a new cover by legendary painter Robert McGinnis.
As a special bonus, each of the three books will also include a long-lost private-eye novelette by McBain starring Matt Cordell, the detective from THE GUTTER AND THE GRAVE. These three novelettes were originally published in pulp magazines of the 1950s and haven’t been seen in more than half a century.
If you are a fan of the genre, please indulge yourself and check out Hard Case Crime’s website. They have goodies by Max Allan Collins, Michael Crichton writing as John Lange and many more. The covers are absolutely brilliant representations of the genre!
Hard Case Crime also published Stephen King’s Joyland.
I actually had quite a bit of interest in my blog entry announcing that Ed McBain’s books are now available for the Kindle. Well, today only, all 35 titles of the Ed McBain 87th Precinct mysteries are on sale for only 99 cents each! Normally, these are $4.99 each.
The deal ends tonight at midnight, PST.
I think I am going to buy them all…
