Yes indeed, my American friends. Thanks to the dark machinations of my sinister overlords at Orbit, for this month only, e-books of Best Served Cold will be available at the scandalous knock-down promotional price of $2.99! Nook! Kindle! Sony readers and many more! Stocks are strictly limited, so act now! Well, that’s not entirely true. Stocks of e-books are infinite, it’s one of the advantages of the medium.

Definitely in for upgrading to a digital copy of this one. This is the book that made me think of your work in a whole new light. Fantastic work.
Nice. I already have this book on Kindle, but would repurchase your earlier books for Kindle if they were made available at that price.
Come to think of it, I wish Amazon/B&N/etc. would make books you’ve already purchased in print available as ebooks for a small fee, say 2 or 3 bucks. Seems like that would be a win-win-win for reader, author, and publisher.
@Tim H. – agree completely. Personally I love to buy the printed book, complete beautiful axe-laden cover, indispensable MAP, evocative smell, tactile accoutrements, signed frontpiece etc. But I want it kept pristine, plus it’s likely a heavy, unwieldy bastard. So let me buy at the same time a sudsidised e-book as well, to actually, you-know, read. As you so succintly put it, win-win-win.
I believe Joe’s future ebooks (inc. The Heroes) are likely to include all kinds of additional goodness to tempt us – say it’s so Joe, so it’s so…
Anyone know if these deals work in Canada as well?
If yes, is there a store I can buy it from to read (easily) as an ebook on the computer? I do not have any ebook-specific reading device.
I’ll buy the book when it comes out in paperback anyways, but I can’t resist owning the ebook for this price.
I already have the hard copy, but this price makes me want to carry it along in my pocket via my phone/thing that does everything I need. Plus I’m gonna tell me ebook reading friends.
I like real books as well, but I find that I am buying them less and less these days as I can put over a thousand ebooks on my Nook. However, The Heroes and whatever else Joe will be writing after, I will buy in their original form. They will most likely be some of the last “real”, books I’ll be buying in paper format.
In for 3!
Any chance the original trilogy will be out for the B&N ereader (at any price!!!)?
Um…. not on sale in the US on the Kindle store?
The 2.99 offer was only for a month. Best Served Cold appears to still be on the kindle store, reverted back to its higher price – though it does seem to be the UK edition rather than the US, now. Don’t know exactly why.
I’m very disappointed and annoyed that I can’t buy this ebook, even for full price, since I am not in America. How can I get it in Australia? I want to get “The heroes” as an ebook too, but am not allowed. I’ve seen in stores here. I have all your books, and am very keen to get the ebooks too, so I can carry them when I travel.
Apparently the Australian distributor went bust, which has caused a problem with supply of all Hachette titles. They’re currently negotiating with a new carrier. So it should be available soon. Obviously I’d like my books available in every format and every territory, but these hiccups do happen.
