Rather than adding to the ‘ebooks are cheap now!’ And ‘what books should I put in my ears?’ threads, why not collect the (seemingly UK-only) periodic BL books in sales in a single thread?

Today, ADB’s Talon of Horus is Audible’s Daily Deal- only £2.99.

It’s (obviously) a really good book, and Jonathan Keeble does a great job narrating it. I’ve bought the audio twice, in fact- one through the BL Audio app and one in a previous Audible sale.

I also bought it through the app but it’s disappeared from the apps library. It was the only book I ever bought through the app. With no proof of purchase I doubt BL will do anything about it. But I must send off an email about that. I had forgotten about that until I read your post!

Even with ebook purchase you should still receive an email confirmation (your proof of purchase), or in the worst case, you can send them you bank statement for that specific transaction.

Hi! It’s me again, and I’m certainly not Audible’s shill.

They’re revisiting previous daily deals in the UK this week, relisting them in bulk for 24 hours for £1.99.

Today sees Horus Rising (again) and Attack of the Necron.

I got the latter for 99p, I think and I’d have been more than happy to pay double that. It’s a nicely told story that maintains the feel of 40k and the plot is no more paper thin than in many mainline BL novels. Tennant does an amazing good reading of it, demonstrating that he’s an excellent actor. Plus, as it’s an audio it’s probably less obvious to others that you’re not only reading a book about toy soldiers, you’re reading a book about toy soldiers specifically written for pre-teen readers...

(Not, BL, I know, but the sale also features the decent-but-a-bit-hack debut non-IP novel by a writer known for his work with Blood Angels)

This month Amazon UK are offering Robute Guilliman and Incarnation at £1.99 each.

(Also in the sale is Tade Thompson’s Rosewater, a book which really makes me want to read his take on psykers in the 40k universe)

Highly recommend the For the Emperor audiobook. The narrator aces Cain.

I wonder why these or similar deals are not ever offered on the Amazon US store.  Any thoughts?

 

Maybe whatever the reason is, its the same reason BL releases books on Kindle in an entirely unpredictable timeline?

At least US gets some pretty decent sale events. This is our pre-Christmas/Black Friday sale on Audible.de.... (might have to confirm that you do not want to be automatically redirected to your local version). For me, who only reads or listens in English unless it's a German original, 't is the season of major frustration at every major retailer.

UK member sale of 20% off seems to have started without fanfare for the next 20 days. I’ve picked up a few shorts which otherwise don’t seem great value for money to me.

The slightly inconsistent pricing means that House of Night and Chain is £4.15 at the moment; if I hadn’t already bought the ebook, I’d have been all over that too...

Edit- reader, I bought it. But not Swallow’s Hammer and Anvil, despite it being only £5.19.
