Pencils and Process Book Availability and Discount Thread

In some ways, this is slightly redundant to my announcement post about this book's publication, but I thought it might also be good to maintain a thread about where Pencils and Process is available and if any special prices pop up. A few days ago, I saw Barnes and Noble had a discount on it - about 20% off the hardcover if I remember correctly. It didn't last long, but I'll try to share stuff like that here. For now though, I'll start by listing where you can buy it with links.

Looks like we've already got another discount going, on Amazon this time. The hardcover is on sale for $32.68. It's 7% off...not much, but small discounts help too. I wonder if this is to coincide with Easter sales at other retailers? For example, right now you can save $10 off ($50 minimum total) at Barnes and Noble with the code APRILSHOWERS. And Books-A-Million has a 20% coupon code BASKET ($30 minimum total).

I thought this was interesting too; there are some other non-Prime sellers. I almost always stick with things that have Prime shipping personally, but it's sort of cool that there are some other slightly cheaper options. Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/1733921001/ref=tmm_pap_new_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=1555169144&sr=8-1

For any Kindle users out there (device or app), the eBook version of Pencils and Process is free on Amazon until Saturday April 20th at midnight!

Amazon has a program called "KDP Select," which sounds sort of like some cult or middle-level marketing scheme. But it's actually an agreement for an author to sell their eBook only on Amazon for 90 days. They offer promotional options like "sponsored giveaways" and "countdown deals" that aren't otherwise available. Anyway I joined it because the internet told me it was a good idea. What could go wrong?

It doesn't affect physical books - only eBooks. Since I only have a Kindle electronic version right now anyway, I figured it made sense to try the program. But like I said, you can still buy the paperback and hardcover at Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, and all the rest. Enjoy the freebie!
