There are refurbished Kindles on sale for $99, which is both a good and a bad thing. The discount may mean a new model is coming soon but it probably own’t be $99, whatever it is. So if you’ve been waiting for the price to drop, it surely dropped now!

I am over at Kirkus talking about changing trends in covers, from models looking directly at you to the long-lasting trend of headless covers.
This trend is slowly changing, and on more recent releases you’ll see a head, a back, a peek of a face looking over a shoulder. In the past few years, very often the cover would reveal everything from the chin downward. On the men, stubble to hips with man titty of epic proportion in between, or for the heroine, chin to bustle, with perhaps a partially undressed back in the middle. For a while now, there haven’t been a lot of faces on the covers of romance novels.
Kobo coupons for you - I had a hard time figuring out what the “select ebooks” were, as I didn’t see any marked. Maybe it works on all of them? That’d be cool!

This is rather thought-provoking. Domino Project’s “Read This Before Our Next Meeting” is free for the Kindle thanks to corporate sponsorship. This week: Citrix, a software used to log in securely to workplace information and desktops, is sponsoring the free-ness.
While the idea of sponsoring a freebie is interesting, and I wonder whether or how it would translate to the romance fiction genre, I have to say, I think this is kinda funny. One of Citrix’s included features is the virtual meeting software, GoToMeeting. So read the book before your next virtual meeting (and then cancel it because the only thing worse than a meeting is a Task Force).
And for your next office decor purchase: Meetings: None of Us is as Dumb as All of Us.
