Free Shipping Until April 30th - Please Share!
It's Unbound's sixth birthday and, in a really nifty turn of events, they're offering free UK postage on all titles with code FREESHIPPING. That code will actually knock £4 off the cost of international shipping as well, so it's still a really handy option even if you're outside the UK. This code expires at midnight on April 30th. Don't miss out!
There are two things I think it's really worth drawing attention to here:
- If you've pledged for an ebook already, now's your chance to upgrade to a paperback for a fiver. The first thing I did when I heard about this promotion was to upgrade to the paperback version of Niall Slater's excellent The Second Death of Daedalus Mole, so I can confirm this works just fine. Simply click "Account" at the top of this page, then click the green "Upgrade" button for Ten Little Astronauts. It's as easy as that! For just £5 more you'll be getting a luxurious paperback in addition to your ebook, and (since physical books aren't subject to VAT) you'll be doubling your contribution to Ten Little Astronauts at the same time.
- This would be a really great time to tell your friends about the book. There's a colossal amount of support for Ten Little Astronauts already. If everybody found just one friend willing to put in a pledge, we would be more than halfway there. You don't have to make it your life's work to tell everybody in the world - I'm not starting a cult here! - just find one person who likes sci-fi and/or murder mysteries and ask them to join you in helping to get this book off the ground. If they get on board by the end of the 30th, they won't have to spend a penny on postage!
Of course, spreading the news through Facebook and Twitter (and whatever else you use to spread news) makes a difference too, so anything you can do to let people know about this promotion would be much appreciated. Ordinarily, if there's a promo code going, its value comes out of the pledge itself. This one, however, just knocks off the cost of postage so the full amount still goes towards Ten Little Astronauts. That's a huge opportunity and it's not likely to come up again. Don't let it pass you - or your buddies - by!
Also, do bear in mind that the code will work for any book on this site. My profile lists quite a few that I'd not only happily recommend, but am already supporting myself!
