Check out My New Look & New Low Price!
Anastasia here. As the star of an amateur sleuth mystery series, I want as many people as possible to read about me in the books written by author Lois Winston. Can you blame me? However, Lois and I both know that most readers only have a limited amount of dollars they can spend on their reading habit, and most choose to divvy up those reading dollars among a variety of authors and protagonists. Hey, I understand. Thanks to dead louse of a spouse leaving me with debt equal to the gross national product of Uzbekistan, I know what it’s like to count pennies and live on an austere budget.
That’s why we find it so frustrating when publishers charge an exorbitant price for ebooks. After all, ebooks don’t have anywhere near the production costs of physical books. There are no paper and ink costs, no printing costs, no warehousing costs, and no shipping costs involved in the production of an electronic book. The manuscript has already been edited, and the cover has already been created for the print version of the book. The only added expense is in the file conversion for the ebook. According to Lois, who is admittedly no computer genius, this is a relatively easy process that doesn’t involve much time. If she can do it, anyone can. Yet some publishers are now charging more for ebooks than for the paperback edition of the book. How does that make any sense?
Over the last few years Lois has slowly gotten her rights returned to her and thanks to modern technology, has republish her books herself—at a much more reasonable price for both the print and ebook editions.
I’m happy to announce that Revenge of the Crafty Corpse, the third book in the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series, is now finally available at a significant discount from her previous publisher’s edition. Whereas the publisher was charging nearly $10 for the ebook(yikes!), Lois’ version is a very fair $3.99. The only difference? A new cover and lower price. In addition, there's also a new edition of the paperback, again at a lower price than what the publisher had charged.
Revenge of the Crafty Corpse
An Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery, Book 3
Anastasia Pollack’s dead louse of a spouse has left her with more bills than you can shake a crochet hook at. Teaching craft classes at her mother-in-law’s assisted living center seems like an easy way to supplement her meager income. But when Lyndella Wegner—a 98-year-old know-it-all with a penchant for ruffles and lace—turns up dead, Anastasia’s cantankerous mother-in-law becomes the prime suspect in her murder. Upon discovering that Lyndella’s scandalous craft projects—and her scandalous behavior—made her plenty of enemies, Anastasia sets out to find the real killer before her mother-in-law ends up behind bars.
