Holy Week Sale

I apologize for my absence the last week, friends. Turns out I got quite sick. Still trying to dig out of it. I got the flu (non-stomach virus), with full on body aches and a high fever. Not fun, right? Well, the day after my fever broke and I thought on was turning the corner, I woke up unable to swallow at all. Surprise! Strep throat! Well, all of us writers know that comedy and tragedy must come in 3s and 5s, so we can’t just end with flu and strep. Yesterday my doctor told me over the phone that I probably have an upper respiratory infection as well. Ding! Ding! Ding! We have the trifecta!

I’m not sure if I had/have all three of those or just a combination of two, but let me tell you, I really don’t care. I just want to be done with it.

Anyway, that’s the reason for my absence. I apologize.

But I have good news for you!

If you have been wanting to get Pieces Like Pottery and just thought that $5.00 for mocha and $4.99 for a whole book was just too much to spend, well you’re right. Stop spending so much on coffee! You could be saving for your retirement! You don’t need that much sugar! Caffeine? Yes. Sugar? No!

You’re in luck, though, because Pieces Like Pottery is on sale this week! Just $0.99 cents!

About a year ago my book reached bestseller status on Amazon. I was delighted and honored and humbled. In return, to celebrate that anniversary I decided to put it on sale as a thank you to all my supporters. Thank you!

I did not expect it at all, but I logged on this morning only to find this:




We’re back, friends! Wow! Thank you for your support. I’m honored and touched.

Since this is Holy Week and my book explores the themes of the Five Sorrowful Mysteries, I figured what better time than now to basically give it away to readers. This is a great week to do some heartfelt reading and some reflection on what it means for us to be human.

So, if you’ve been waiting to buy it, now’s your chance. Get a copy for yourself! Gift one to your friend! You can currently get 5 books for the normal price of 1. Don’t miss out!

And if you prefer print copies, worry not! I am discounting my print book 33% off the $15 cover price this week for anyone that wants a signed print version. Simply send me an email at danburi777 {at} gmail {dot} com.

If you’ve been waiting to get it, don’t sleep! Now’s your chance!

Pay It Forward Giveaway

book giveawayI have received a lot of inquiries about when Pieces Like Pottery will be available in print. We’re working on it. Hopefully it will be available by the end of March. (I almost said at the end of Q1. Guess who has a day job that isn’t being a writer?) Stay tuned. But for now…

We’re doing the Pay It Forward giveaway! There are 10 Books available to win.

To enter simply comment below, email me, tweet me, or Facebook message me. It’s that simple. I will be selecting 10 lucky winners throughout February.

But there’s a catch. In the spirit of the kindness of the characters in the book, if you win and enjoy the read, then you Pay It Forward.

If you hate it, tell everyone. Say the book is terrible. In fact, here’s a pre-made tweet for you if you hate it:

I’ve read better stories on the back of a Wheaties box. I want my money back from this free book.  

If you like it, however, you need to Pay It Forward.

As a winner, I will gift you a free copy of the book on Amazon. If you enjoy the book, it’s your turn. You must gift a copy of Pieces Like Pottery on Amazon to a friend of yours. (And review it of course.) Then if your friend likes it, they must do the same.

Why? Because books are so much more fun to read when they come recommended and as a gift, are they not? I dare you to disagree with that. If you do, you’re probably the kind of person that hates puppies and Christmas.

As my mother always said to us growing up, “Generosity breeds generosity.” Well, Mom, for this giveaway you are absolutely right. Everyone wins and everyone gets to feel good about themselves.

Spread the word! (Unless you’re greedy and want to make sure you win!)
