Current Deals

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

There are a lot of promotions going on right now, so I thought I’d collect them all in one post:

MICKEY SPILLANE ON SCREEN, a complete study of the television and film adaptations of Mike Hammer, from academic press McFarland, can be snagged at Barnes and Noble for 33% off, or $30.37. The tome was slated for a September 2012 release, but Max received his copies today, and McFarland’s online store lists the book as shipping now.

Two Nathan Hellers, TRUE CRIME and THE MILLION DOLLAR WOUND are both on sale on the Amazon Kindle store. TRUE CRIME is $1.99, with the end of sale unknown, and THE MILLION DOLLAR WOUND is also $1.99 through the end of May.

THE GOLIATH BONE, the chronologically last Mike Hammer, and the first by Mickey Spillane and M.A.C., is still a steal for the Kindle at $1.85.

QUARRY and QUARRY’S VOTE are discounted on the Kindle store, with the QUARRY $1.99 sale and QUARRY’S VOTE $1.99 sale extended until the end of May.

The QUARRY trade paperback is also 35% off, this week only, when purchased directly from Perfect Crime’s printer, Create Space. The entire Nolan series is also 20% off through the end of the month, and the deals can be combined in one order to save on shipping. Just add both codes below separately to your cart. At 20% off, orders of two or more will beat Amazon, and the more you buy, the better the deal. I suggest all of them, of course.

Nolan series 20% off code: LX2E2WBF

QUARRY 35% off code: 62LHK8WT

Create Space Links: QUARRY | FLY PAPER | HUSH MONEY | SCRATCH FEVER | SPREE | MOURN THE LIVING

And don’t forget to check out LADY, GO DIE!, the lost sequel to I, THE JURY, and ANTIQUES DISPOSAL, the newest Trash ‘n’ Treasures cozy from Barbara Allan. Both are in stores now!

New Edition Nolan Trade Paperbacks 20% Off

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

To celebrate the new editions of heist artist Nolan’s adventures, Perfect Crime Books is offering a 20% discount through the end of May when ordering straight from the printer’s secure store at createspace.com. Each book comes with a new introduction from Max (aside from Mourn the Living, which includes the intro from the Five Star Press run). For me, shipping on one book came out to be around $3.50, and was only a couple dollars more for an order of all six, so the deal is better the more you buy.

Antiques Disposal On Shelves Now, Antiques Bizarre Free On Kindle

Antiques Disposal

Antiques Disposal comes out today, so be sure to check your local bookseller or purchase a copy online:

Antiques Disposal is the latest Barbara Allan collaboration and the sixth in the Trash ‘n’ Treasures cozy series, with Brandy and her mother Vivian entering the competitive—and deadly—world of storage auctions. But if you’re a fan of M.A.C.’s more hardboiled work, don’t let the word cozy fool you—this series is both tough and funny. Here’s what Ron Fortier of Pulp Fiction Reviews had to say:

“As a fan of hardboiled detective fiction … [cozies are] not my particular brand of tea…[But deciding I’d take a chance with Antiques Disposal] is probably one of the smartest things I’ve done in a while. Why? Well simply because the book is so damn funny, I honestly couldn’t put it down. And the characters! … There is a charm and decency to these characters that immediately grabbed me and had me caring for them from page one….if all of the Trash ‘n’ Treasures Mysteries are as wonderful as Antiques Disposal, then sign me up for the long haul.”

And Publisher’s Weekly liked it too, wrting: “A classic gathering of suspects, under the guise of auctioning off the cornet, leads to an unexpected denouement.”

Plus, if you’re still on the fence, or would just like to catch up on the series, Amazon’s running a sale on the e-book of Antiques Bizarre. And it’s a heck of a sale at 100% off. I’m assuming this is very time limited, so act quickly. Here’s the link:
