(EDITED [Sep 29 AM] TO ADD: Got some sorrowful emails from folks this morning saying “HEY I WOULD HAVE HELPED YOU BUY YOUR CHAIR IF I’D HEARD ABOUT THIS IN TIME…” So, okay, we’ve extended the 50%-off offer for another 12 hours. But that’s it.  :) Those of you who were sorry you missed out, go on and get yourself something, and then I can get not only the chair but, let’s say, a nice throw to go over the chair… (which the cat will probably shred. Well, better the throw than the chair…) Thanks again, everybody!)

I have this recliner chair in which I curl up and do a lot of my writing. Well, I had this recliner chair.

Last night I sat down in it and something went SPROING in the base, and it nearly chucked me onto the floor. It is now officially very, very busted: it wobbles and rolls like some kind of bargain-basement thrill ride. The only one who can sit in it now is the cat, and even he gets wobbled around when he jumps up on it. (You should see his face.)

The sooner I can replace this thing, the happier it’s going to make me. So for one day only, we’re offering all comers a 50% discount off everything at the Ebooks Direct store: the Uptown Local anthology, the Young Wizards International edition singles and 9-book bundles, even Peter’s “Tales of Old Russia” series. All you need to do to get the discount is use the coupon code BUSTEDCHAIR at checkout.

We’ve never done a discount offer this deep before, but our web lady Lee said “Well, if you really want to replace the chair when you go out to
do the shopping on Friday, better do something drastic!” So here it is: a day’s worth of drastic. :) If you’ve passed through the store before and thought “Maybe later”, knock 50% off what you saw and see if the result might now be “Today’s the day!”

So the clock starts ticking… now! (And to those of you who’ll be taking advantage of the offer: thanks in advance!)

This got posted at [community profile] ebooks, where I saw it, and I'm spreading the word as well! This is a totally sweet sale, although I'm sorry to hear about the ill-timed death of your chair. I shall use this sale to buy digital copies of the books of yours which I already own. :D

Thanks! This is awesome, and I can no longer put off owning all the Young Wizards' books just because the library has them. ;)

I hope you find another comfy chair on Friday!

I just gleefully snagged a copy of the Tale of the Five omnibus, because it's been too long since I read them, and my new e-reader needz moar books! *g*
