Paying a lower price for a paperback book…

When it comes to paperback books, I prefer large print, because… well… they are easier for me to read. All books in the Haunting Danielle series come in both regular paperback and large print.

Unfortunately, large print paperbacks tend to be pricy because they contain more paper. The regular price of a Haunting Danielle large print paperback book is $22 these days. But did you know you can often get them for under $5? And if you have Prime, there is no shipping costs. (I am talking about new paperbacks, not used books.)

Amazon frequently offers paperbacks at a reduced rate—often lower than my production cost. How do they do this? I’m not really sure, but someone once told me it had something to do with overruns and then they want to move the books. I have no idea how true that is.

But, if you want to take advantage of these deals, this is what you do…

Log into my Amazon Author Page (click on Link).

Once there, scroll down and you will see a horizonal menu listing the offered formats. Click on PAPERBACK.

Once that pages opens, go the “Sort by” option on the right side of the page and choose Price: Low to High.

When I just did this, The Ghost Who Lied popped up at $4.23 in large print. It says there is only 1 left in stock. While I don’t always believe those “in stock” claims, I imagine there may only be one currently available.

But that’s not the only book offered at discount. There are two other ones from the series offered under $5, and about a half a dozen listed below the regular sale price.  All have limited copies at those prices.

If you check today and they are all gone, check back. I do this periodically and always find new ones on sale.

I suspect you might find this true for the paperbacks of other authors you read.

Happy bargain hunting!
