Quick note from Carrie 11/19/12: THANK YOU to everyone who has and is pre-ordering copies. Your support is amazing as you have been ordering books, but also spreading the word on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter (see sample posts below). I was especially touched by the Pocketeer who said they ordered a copy for $6.99 to support me because they know that they’ve saved much more than that via PocketYourDollars.com. Thank you. Thank you! THANK YOU!
I’m so excited! My book, Pocket Your Dollars: 5 Attitude Changes That Will Help You Pay Down Debt, Avoid Financial Stress, & Keep More of What You Make is the deal of the day right now on BN.com. That means you can get the book for half off (just $6.99) when you preorder through BN.com now through Tuesday, 11/20 at 8:59am EST. This offer is not available in-store.
If you want to learn a little more about the book before you order it, read this Q&A to get a flavor.
According to my publisher, this deal of the day promotion is a BIG DEAL. Very few books are included in this type of promotion and it bodes really well for the book if it goes well (translated: sells a lot). If this promo goes well, then the book will get premium placement at Barnes & Noble stores nationwide; B&N has already agreed to carry it in all their stores, but getting greater in-store visibility would be uh-mazing. I’d love to see us do that!
PS – Wondering how this deal will compare to the price of a Nook or Kindle e-book? The publisher will sell the e-books at the same price as the print copy ($13.99). However, Amazon is notorious for lowering the price on books and e-books at their discretion. We aren’t privy to know what they’ll sell the Kindle version for, but it’s doubtful that it will be 50% off. Based on my observation of other books and e-books, a 15-25% discount for new releases seems more likely.
Spread the Word
I am asking you to please help me spread the word about this promotion. It’s rare that I ask you to do anything other than come and enjoy the content we provide. This is one of those rare times.
Could you please take a minute and help tell others about this? Pinheads can pin about it (isn’t that what Pinterest addicts are called??) ;). Tweeters can tweet. Facebookers can Facebook. I’ll help you get started:

And if you live in the Twin Cities area, you’ll have the opportunity to get the book signed by me in 2013. I am doing a handful of book signings at Barnes & Noble stores in the area. I’ll let you know more specifics as those dates get closer.
I will also offer full-priced signed copies sold directly from PocketYourDollars.com when the time comes.
