Get The Next Story eBook for Cheap

Articles Collection cover image

The Next StoryIf you want to buy the e-book version of my forthcoming book The Next Story for a good price, here’s how: Pre-order it. Zondervan has put together a rather interesting promotion for the ebook. Here’s the way it works:

  • The list price for the ebook at Amazon is currently $9.99.
  • For every 200 copies pre-ordered, the price will fall by $1.
  • This means that if we hit 1,000 copies sold, the price will fall all the way to $4.99 – half off.
  • It means that if we were to get 5,000 copies pre-ordered, the price would fall to $2.99.

When the book releases on April 1, the price will return to $9.99.

What you need to understand is that Amazon does not actually charge you for the book until the day they deliver it. So if you order it at $9.99 and between now and April 1 the price falls, you will pay the lower price, not the price you pre-ordered it at. Understand? So that’s why if you’re going to buy the book anyway, we’d like you to pre-order it. If you do so, it increases the likelihood that you’ll end up paying less than the list price.

Now, some of your are Nook or iBooks users. Unfortunately we have not been able to work out this detail on those platforms; however, along the way we will see if there is a way for us to match the price.

So…if you’re a Kindle reader and are planning on reading The Next Story, why don’t you go ahead and pre-order. Then we’ll be 1/200th of the way to reducing the price by another $1. If enough people play along, you can get the book at a great discount.

  • Managing Kingdom Causes with Sound Business Principles 

    This week the blog is sponsored by Redeemer University. The word “management” conjures up images of executives leading large corporations with the goal of generating wealth for shareholders.

    Comparative Suffering

    It is something you tend to hear a lot when you have endured a time of significant sorrow or suffering: “I know it’s nothing compared to yours, but…” We have a natural tendency to compare—to compare our experiences to another person’s and to rank or rate them accordingly. The person who has suffered the loss…
