$1 Orbit is all about Jennifer Rardin

$1 OrbitThis month the most excellent Once Bitten Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin is the $1 Orbit eBook for May.

I really like the heroine, Jaz Parks as I wrote in my review back in 2007, which, on the internet is so long ago that entry might require carbon dating. Or it’s decomposed such that it is dating a piece of carbon. Either way- Jaz Parks: kicks ass.

What are the ways in which the ass is kicked by Jaz? Let me count them:

1. She gets hurt. She falls out glass windows, shit (not literally) falls on her, she gets cut, hit, slapped, beaten, and bitten, and she says “OW” and then keeps going because if she stops to nurse her wounds and whine about how she’s a delicate little flower, she’ll die. There’s fight sequences that make you wince, because Jaz will get the ever living shit beat out of her and still stand up and kick the ass.

2. She doesn’t call for help unless she needs it. Her partner has otherworldly powers (more on that in a minute) and can kick slightly more of the ass than she can, but does she hide behind a pillar and whine for him to come save her? Nope. She pulls yet another weapon out of her sleeve and serves up the ass for more kicking.

For $1, you can download your own copy and see if you agree. I love this promotion, especially since it’s often the first book of a series that they give away so inexpensively, and because a whole site dedicated to just their promotion means that once a month, you can take a look to see what’s new. Well played Orbit and Hachette, for both the continuing promotion and for featuring Rardin.

    I hadn’t thought of it, but you’ve pointed out a good thing about ebooks, ev. Whatever your mood, or what book you want to re-read, with digital copies revisiting a book is easy, esp. with addition of memory cards in friendly devices. You can carry your library if you want to.

    That was the main reason that ebook readers appealed to me so much: the ability to have so many books with me at one time, in one device. That’s a blessing, when I can (and have) gone through two or three books in a day.

    And this is definitely on my to-get list now!

    The Orbit link shows all the different retailers who have the dollar deal, including Amazon and (yay!) Fictionwise.  This looks great; I forgot about last month’s book, after fully intending to get it, so I will go do this RIGHT NOW.

    I think my e-book TBR pile is as big as my print pile, with the difference that everything in the e-pile was free or dirt cheap.  This will be great over the next three weekends, each one of which takes me and the laptop out of town for three days.

    Glad more people have an opportunity to read Rardin. SQUEEE! girlfan here.  Also echo SonomaLass.  LURVVVV me some cheap ebooks.  Get a real chance to try out a new author for cheap but I so often wind up buying the next and the next, stop me before my credit card overheats! 

    I’m going back now and buying some of my comfort reads and books that I come back to when I’m in the mood for a certain theme or setting.  That way I’ll have my “keeper” library with me always.  AND can get rid of huge stacks of print books.  Sigh.  If only everything I wanted was available in eformat.
