As the holiday season is slowly approaching, it’s high time to run a few promotions. I have, at present, two books enrolled with KDP Select, so after some debating I’ve decided to give the Countdown Deals a whirl.
From December 5th to December 12th, Tales of the Little Engine will be discounted on Amazon.com. It’ll be $0.99 for the first three days and $1.99 for the last four days.
Directly afterwards, I’ll be running a Countdown Deal for Feather by Feather and Other Stories on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
On Amazon.com the deal schedule looks like this:
December 13: $0.99
December 14-15: $1.99
December 16: $2.99
December 17: $3.99
December 18-19: $4.99
On Amazon.co.uk the deal schedule looks like this:
December 13-14: £0.99
December 15-16: £1.99
December 17-19: £2.99
The difference happens because the UK price is numerically lower than the US price and the increments are all set as 1 dollar/pound intervals. This is also why there is no matching Amazon.co.uk Countdown Deal for Tales of the Little Engine: the UK price is numerically too low for Amazon to allow me to create a deal for the book.
I’m considering changing this in 2015, so all the books have a nice round price tag (as I’ve seen recommended), but I haven’t yet decided.
I hope you’ll enjoy yourself if you decide to pick up one of the books!
