PM Update to Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alert for Tuesday, August 31, 2010: New Nonfiction Additions to our Kindle Store Free Listings! plus a new novel about a mysterious Kindle in AmI (Today’s Sponsor)

Here are several full-length nonfiction titles — including decision-making aids, personal finance, and education — to lead some late-day additions to our Free Book Alert listings in the Kindle Store!

But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor

AmI
by Myra Concannon

$2.99 in the Kindle Store

 

We never judge a book by its cover here at Kindle Nation, and you won’t want to either where this lighthearted mystery from Myra Concannon is concerned! If you enjoyed UR, Stephen King’s yarn about the remarkable hot pink Kindle that helped to launch the Kindle 2, you’ll be intrigued by this novel that may help launch the Kindle 3….
Are they out there, hovering on the Whispernet, waiting to get in on an unwanted download? That’s the troubling question that haunts Anna, a senior citizen separated from her family in an assisted living facility, when she orders a Kindle, and strange things start to happen. Is the cause a voodoo spell put on the Kindle by the peculiar Haitian attendant? Is it an electronic alteration caused by a weird sci-fi book download? Is it an alien presence known as Ambient Intelligence (AmI) that means her harm? Or, as everyone tries to convince her, is the problem just a technical glitch in her Kindle. 
It takes Anna’s growing romantic relationship with a handsome resident and her close tie with her 14-year-old grandson to sort it all out.  So, be sure to check the next time the tiny disk turns in the upper left hand corner of your Kindle and you get a download. Did you really place that order … or is it AmI?

Along with the thoroughly enjoyable “solve the mystery” aspect of AmI, one of the appealing aspects of this book is that it shows how valuable and useful the Kindle can be for senior citizens.

Demonfire
Demonfire by Kate Douglas – Paranormal/Adventure/Romance
Since time began, the Earth has served as a balance between the world of darkness that is the Abyss, and the paradise known as Eden. Now the battle between good and evil has reached a tipping point, and survival depends on one fallen demon– and the woman he can’t resist…

“Kate Douglas does it again! A delicious, sexy romp of a book, with a demon lover to die for and an everywoman heroine who rises to the challenge. It totally sucked me in!”–Angela Knight, New York Times bestselling author
“Wildly entertaining. A fabulous new world for fans of the paranormal.”–Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times bestselling author
Bake Sale Murder
Bake Sale Murder – by Leslie Meier – Mystery
Ever since local developer Fred Stanton and his wife, Mimi, built five modular homes next door to Lucy Stone’s farmhouse, life just hasn’t been the same. With Mimi complaining about everything from the state of Lucy’s lawn to another neighbor’s lovable dog, quaint Tinker’s Cove, Maine, is now entangled in cul-de-sac politics and backstabbing. And when Mimi doesn’t show up for her shift at The Hat and Mitten Fund bake sale, the scent of burnt sugar leads Lucy to a shocking discovery: Mimi, face down on her kitchen floor–with a knife in her back.
While the police start their investigation, Lucy gets busy writing up the murder for the local Pennysaver–and following a few leads of her own. Lucy knows the women in her neighborhood didn’t like Mimi, but they certainly didn’t want her dead…right?
Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition
Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition by Jon R. Huntsman

The nationwide bestseller–fully updated for today’s tough times and worldwide financial crises
“Everyone does it.” Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not today. If you want to succeed in this economic climate, you simply have to make compromises. Right?
Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. The proof? You’re holding it.
Jon M. Huntsman built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. There were short-term costs and difficult decisions. There were tough times. Times just like today. But ultimately, leading with integrity wasn’t just personally right for Huntsman, it also proved to be the best business strategy.
In Winners Never Cheat, Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This book is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It’s about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right, no matter what you’re up against.
It’s about winning. The right way.
Think about the kind of person you want to do business with. Then, be that person–and use this book to get you there.
Author royalties from this book go to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation
Lessons From A Younger Lover
Lessons From A Younger Lover by Zuri Day – Steamy Romance from Kensington Books

Zuri Day cranks up the heat with an explosively sexy tale about a woman who’s about to get a crash course in lust. . .
First grade teacher Gwen Smith was happily married–until her husband got himself a twenty-something mistress and filed for divorce. Now just months away from turning forty-one, Gwen is back in her tiny California hometown, caring for her ailing mother, convinced her life is over. Then she meets Ransom Blake.
Ransom is a twenty-six-year-old hunk who pushes every one of Gwen’s buttons. Gwen has no intention of getting involved with a younger man, but he won’t take no for an answer. So when he shows up at her classroom unannounced, Gwen can’t help but tell him off–and then she realizes he’s come for his daughter. But Ransom isn’t shy about letting Gwen know how she can make it up to him. And if he gets his way, Gwen will lose all her inhibitions–and her heart…

Human beings have astonishing genetic vulnerabilities. More than half of us will die from complex diseases that trace directly to those vulnerabilities, and the modern world we’ve created places us at unprecedented risk from them. In It Takes a Genome, Greg Gibson posits a revolutionary new hypothesis: Our genome is out of equilibrium, both with itself and its environment. Simply put, our genes aren’t coping well with modern culture. Our bodies were never designed to subsist on fat and sugary foods; our immune systems weren’t designed for today’s clean, bland environments; our minds weren’t designed to process hard-edged, artificial electronic inputs from dawn ‘til midnight. And that’s why so many of us suffer from chronic diseases that barely touched our ancestors.
Gibson begins by revealing the stunningly complex ways in which multiple genes cooperate and interact to shape our bodies and influence our behaviors. Then, drawing on the very latest science, he explains the genetic “mismatches” that increasingly lead to cancer, diabetes, inflammatory and infectious diseases, AIDS, depression, and senility.
Billy Boyle: A World War II Mystery

 Billy Boyle is a Boston cop, from a family of Boston cops, but he is a reluctant soldier who prefers walking the beat in Southie to fighting Nazis. Using her cousin by marriage, a certain General Eisenhower, Billy’s mother lands her son a seemingly soft job with Ike’s staff in London. But Ike wants Billy to use his investigative know-how to sniff out a possible spy in the Allies’ inner circle. Young Billy, oversold by his mother as a crackerjack detective, is definitely in over his head, especially when it turns out that the apparent suicide of a Norwegian dignitary may have been the work of the spy. Benn has a tantalizing premise here, but he doesn’t quite deliver on it: his prose slips into wartime cliches a little too often, and the supporting love story reeks of WWII melodrama. Yet the action builds to a suspenseful climax, and there is even a hint of moral ambiguity in the wrap-up. A not entirely satisfactory debut, then, but Ken Follett fans will want to give Billy and his uncle a chance to develop. Bill Ott, Booklist

The Other Side of the Page
The Other Side of the Page – Romance Short – Terry Odell

Here’s the author’s description: “Finding the perfect hero and heroine for a romance novel can turn a writer’s hair gray–that’s why I advertise for them. Interviewing characters can be exhausting, and getting them to stick to the plot? Well, it doesn’t always work that way. And then you find out they’re talking about you behind your back–Meet Randy and Sarah, the hero and heroine of Finding Sarah and Hidden Fire, in a funny and illuminating look at what goes on behind the scenes of the romance writing process.” Sounds a little meta, but lots of fun.

Price Slashed! The American Book of the Dead Now Available for $1, and You May Be Eligible for a Credit if You Bought It for $2.99

By Stephen Windwalker
Editor of Kindle Nation Daily ©Kindle Nation Daily 2010
 
First, thanks to Ken for writing in with a very understandable question recently:

Steve, is there ever a difference in the price of a download, depending on whether it is bought from one’s Kindle or from a link from your web site? I downloaded one the other day from your web site at $2.99, and then 2 days later when I went to Amazon I noticed it was $1. 

Thanks,
Kenno 

Ken went on to say that he had called customer support and received a credit for the difference between the two prices.

First, Ken, no, there is absolutely never a price differential between the price that is available when you buy a Kindle book directly from your Kindle and the price that you would get when you buy a Kindle book from the main Amazon website’s version of the Kindle Store, whether you get there from Kindle Nation Daily or another website. Something different and interesting happened in this case, and it is worth explaining, in part because other Kindle Nation citizens may also be able to obtain a credit either in this case or similar cases should you notice them in the future.

The book in question was a very interesting novel by Henry Baum, The American Book of the Dead, which stirred up considerable interest among Kindle Nation citizens when it appeared — at a price of $2.99 — as this website’s daily sponsor this past Saturday. The book jumped immediately into the top 2,000 bestselling ebooks among over 700,000 titles in the Kindle Store, and appeared to be headed higher when — thud — it was delisted by Amazon.

Although I have been on vacation since Friday, I’ve been checking in for two hours a day and saw that I had received some emails and post comments from readers who were unable to purchase and download The American Book of the Dead, in addition to a somewhat distressed email from the author, Mr. Baum. I wrote to my contacts at Amazon, who investigated the situation and wrote back immediately. (This is one of the things I love about the Kindle team these day; I heard from a Kindle team manager 16 minutes after I wrote to him in what were, in Seattle, the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning!)

Long story short, most authors and publishers who publish their books in Kindle editions agree to offer them at as low a price on the Kindle platform as any offered price on any other website. In this case, through no fault of the author’s, The American Book of the Dead was inadvertently being offered at a lower price on another ebook venue. The Kindle team contacted the author as well as me, and I am pleased to report that all concerned moved quickly and decisively so that The American Book of the Dead is once again available in the Kindle Store, and it is now available for just one dollar – yes, that’s $1 in American folding money!

If you were one of those who purchased The American Book of the Dead at its previous price of $2.99 on Saturday, I encourage you to contact Kindle Support right away to request a credit for the price difference. You can click on the link above or call the toll-free number at 1-866-321-8851. The 10-digit ASIN for The American Book of the Dead is B002VBWDVU.

Although the situation may have been a bit stressful for the author and perhaps even for a few of our readers, I’m also pleased to see how hard Amazon is working to make sure that Kindle Store prices are competitive, and I am equally pleased at the lightning fast response of all concerned.

And, just in case you need a reminder about this fascinating and ambitious novel, here are a few lines from our Saturday post:

“If you read Lolita or A Clockwork Orange without drop-kicking the book out into the garden on a rainy day, this novel is for you.” Tessa Dick, author of The Owl in Daylight, widow of Philip K. Dick

4.5 out of 5 stars  (4 customer reviews)
Eugene Myers is working on a novel about the end of the world. Meanwhile, he discovers his daughter doing porn online and his marriage is coming to an end. When he begins dreaming about people who turn out to be real, he wonders if his novel is real as well. Which isn’t good news: the radical and demented President Winchell is bent on bringing about worldwide destruction. Eugene Myers may just be the one to stop the apocalypse.
This history of the future covers every conspiracy imaginable: UFOs, secret societies, and World War III, as well as theories on life after death and human evolution. In the tradition of Philip K. Dick and Robert Anton Wilson, The American Book of the Dead explores the nature of reality and the human race’s potential to either disintegrate or evolve.
“Reminiscent of Philip K. Dick and Haruki Murakami, a book that boldly explores the future and defies genre.” –Largehearted Boy
Winner: Best Fiction at the DIY Book Festival
Winner: The Gold IPPY Award for Visionary Fiction

Did you really place that order … or is it AmI?

Along with the thoroughly enjoyable “solve the mystery” aspect of AmI, one of the appealing aspects of this book is that it shows how valuable and useful the Kindle can be for senior citizens.

Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition
Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition by Jon R. Huntsman

The nationwide bestseller–fully updated for today’s tough times and worldwide financial crises
“Everyone does it.” Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not today. If you want to succeed in this economic climate, you simply have to make compromises. Right?
Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. The proof? You’re holding it.
Jon M. Huntsman built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. There were short-term costs and difficult decisions. There were tough times. Times just like today. But ultimately, leading with integrity wasn’t just personally right for Huntsman, it also proved to be the best business strategy.
In Winners Never Cheat, Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This book is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It’s about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right, no matter what you’re up against.
It’s about winning. The right way.
Think about the kind of person you want to do business with. Then, be that person–and use this book to get you there.

Human beings have astonishing genetic vulnerabilities. More than half of us will die from complex diseases that trace directly to those vulnerabilities, and the modern world we’ve created places us at unprecedented risk from them. In It Takes a Genome, Greg Gibson posits a revolutionary new hypothesis: Our genome is out of equilibrium, both with itself and its environment. Simply put, our genes aren’t coping well with modern culture. Our bodies were never designed to subsist on fat and sugary foods; our immune systems weren’t designed for today’s clean, bland environments; our minds weren’t designed to process hard-edged, artificial electronic inputs from dawn ‘til midnight. And that’s why so many of us suffer from chronic diseases that barely touched our ancestors.
Gibson begins by revealing the stunningly complex ways in which multiple genes cooperate and interact to shape our bodies and influence our behaviors. Then, drawing on the very latest science, he explains the genetic “mismatches” that increasingly lead to cancer, diabetes, inflammatory and infectious diseases, AIDS, depression, and senility.

Some Free Kindle Classics That May Not Last Forever


Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alert for Monday, August 30, 2010: A great selection of new free titles, plus a bestselling 5-star contemporary romance for just 99 cents in Crazy for You (Today’s Sponsor)

What a great mix of three very different titles in today’s latest additions to our Free Book Alert listings in the Kindle Store. I’m guessing that there will be very few Kindle Nation citizens who won’t want to add at least one of these to our Kindle libraries….

But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor


Crazy For You 
by Sandra Edwards

$0.99 

 

Crazy For You, a rags to riches tale set against the backdrop of the 80s, movie stars and rock-n-roll, is already a 5-star contemporary romance bestseller in the Kindle Store at the sweet price of 99 cents. Here’s the set-up:

Roxanne Simon is a successful author and an award-winning actress who’s also a bit neurotic. After she appears on a popular talk show the world is left guessing: is rock star Frank Garrett the father of her four year old son? Now that Roxanne’s carefully guarded secrets are starting to unravel, Frank stumbles upon some damaging information that he decides to use against Roxanne—but is he prepared to see her pay the ultimate price in his quest for revenge?

Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition
Winners Never Cheat: Even in Difficult Times, New and Expanded Edition by Jon R. Huntsman

The nationwide bestseller–fully updated for today’s tough times and worldwide financial crises
“Everyone does it.” Everyone cheats. Cuts corners. Tells lies. Maybe it was different once. Not today. If you want to succeed in this economic climate, you simply have to make compromises. Right?
Wrong. You can succeed at the highest levels, without sacrificing the principles that make life worth living. The proof? You’re holding it.
Jon M. Huntsman built a $12 billion company from scratch, the old-fashioned way: with integrity. There were short-term costs and difficult decisions. There were tough times. Times just like today. But ultimately, leading with integrity wasn’t just personally right for Huntsman, it also proved to be the best business strategy.
In Winners Never Cheat, Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This book is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It’s about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right, no matter what you’re up against.
It’s about winning. The right way.
Think about the kind of person you want to do business with. Then, be that person–and use this book to get you there.

Lessons From A Younger Lover
Lessons From A Younger Lover by Zuri Day – Steamy Romance from Kensington Books

Zuri Day cranks up the heat with an explosively sexy tale about a woman who’s about to get a crash course in lust. . .
First grade teacher Gwen Smith was happily married–until her husband got himself a twenty-something mistress and filed for divorce. Now just months away from turning forty-one, Gwen is back in her tiny California hometown, caring for her ailing mother, convinced her life is over. Then she meets Ransom Blake.
Ransom is a twenty-six-year-old hunk who pushes every one of Gwen’s buttons. Gwen has no intention of getting involved with a younger man, but he won’t take no for an answer. So when he shows up at her classroom unannounced, Gwen can’t help but tell him off–and then she realizes he’s come for his daughter. But Ransom isn’t shy about letting Gwen know how she can make it up to him. And if he gets his way, Gwen will lose all her inhibitions–and her heart…

Human beings have astonishing genetic vulnerabilities. More than half of us will die from complex diseases that trace directly to those vulnerabilities, and the modern world we’ve created places us at unprecedented risk from them. In It Takes a Genome, Greg Gibson posits a revolutionary new hypothesis: Our genome is out of equilibrium, both with itself and its environment. Simply put, our genes aren’t coping well with modern culture. Our bodies were never designed to subsist on fat and sugary foods; our immune systems weren’t designed for today’s clean, bland environments; our minds weren’t designed to process hard-edged, artificial electronic inputs from dawn ‘til midnight. And that’s why so many of us suffer from chronic diseases that barely touched our ancestors.
Gibson begins by revealing the stunningly complex ways in which multiple genes cooperate and interact to shape our bodies and influence our behaviors. Then, drawing on the very latest science, he explains the genetic “mismatches” that increasingly lead to cancer, diabetes, inflammatory and infectious diseases, AIDS, depression, and senility.
Billy Boyle: A World War II Mystery

 Billy Boyle is a Boston cop, from a family of Boston cops, but he is a reluctant soldier who prefers walking the beat in Southie to fighting Nazis. Using her cousin by marriage, a certain General Eisenhower, Billy’s mother lands her son a seemingly soft job with Ike’s staff in London. But Ike wants Billy to use his investigative know-how to sniff out a possible spy in the Allies’ inner circle. Young Billy, oversold by his mother as a crackerjack detective, is definitely in over his head, especially when it turns out that the apparent suicide of a Norwegian dignitary may have been the work of the spy. Benn has a tantalizing premise here, but he doesn’t quite deliver on it: his prose slips into wartime cliches a little too often, and the supporting love story reeks of WWII melodrama. Yet the action builds to a suspenseful climax, and there is even a hint of moral ambiguity in the wrap-up. A not entirely satisfactory debut, then, but Ken Follett fans will want to give Billy and his uncle a chance to develop. Bill Ott, Booklist

The Other Side of the Page
The Other Side of the Page – Romance Short – Terry Odell

Here’s the author’s description: “Finding the perfect hero and heroine for a romance novel can turn a writer’s hair gray–that’s why I advertise for them. Interviewing characters can be exhausting, and getting them to stick to the plot? Well, it doesn’t always work that way. And then you find out they’re talking about you behind your back–Meet Randy and Sarah, the hero and heroine of Finding Sarah and Hidden Fire, in a funny and illuminating look at what goes on behind the scenes of the romance writing process.” Sounds a little meta, but lots of fun.
