This week, instead of continuing my blogging theme discussing my three books in one project, I wanted to comment on what happens sometimes when you search Amazon for an author’s books online. When I search Amazon for “Painted Black Borys” I find two results, one of which is a whopping $19.93 and is sold by some company named Wisper Books (see Images 2 and 3).

In Image 1 next to the $5.20 there are also 28 new and used offers you can click on.  These are an assortment of odd sellers offering Painted Black as a new or used book.  This often happens to authors. Their book gets listed for odd, sometimes exorbitant, prices from resellers.  While many of the companies are legit, you should also be cautious since it is possible you might get more than you bargain for if you try purchasing.  This is especially true if they claim you can download the book for free.

The only way you can download any of my books for free is if I or my publisher set up a special sale. If you see an offer too good to be true, check here on my website or my Street Stories site .  I will always tell you about special sales.  The exception to this is that anyone who subscribes to Kindle Unlimited can download some of my books for free.

See images 2 and 3 as examples of what a non-primary seller’s page might look like.

Ebook Prices Reduced

My publisher realigned their pricing structure and decided to reduce the cost for all their ebooks that have been released for at least six months.  This includes the e-versions of both Painted Black and Bend Me, Shape Me! The books will now sell at $2.99, a price which is already reflected on the Amazon.com site and will soon show up on Kobo, iBooks, and B&N.

This is a PERMANENT price change, not just a limited sale. Enjoy!

Praise for Painted Black

Jo Sullivan’s search for a missing street kid unearths a bizarre collection of freeze-dried corpses.

“Full of suspense and intrigue.”

“The characters were true to life and leapt out of the page at me, at times their pain was tangible.”

“There isn’t a part of this book you don’t feel, it reaches into your core.”

“Dark, gritty and suspenseful this is a seat of your pants ride that you won’t soon forget.”

 Praise for Bend Me, Shape Me

Meet Snow Ramirez.  She’s convinced psychiatrist Mordechai Levinson is responsible for one kid’s suicide, and may be targeting her brother Alley as his next victim.

“A fantastic follow up to the first ‘Street Stories’ book.”

“Another heart wrenching look into the life of kids on the street.”

“Borys is quite the master at not only creating believable environments, but thrilling tales.”

“Bend Me, Shape Me is definitely going to deliver a jolt.”

“Snow is strong, brave, troubled and incredibly fierce.”
