Overland Triker Update …

Okay, I suppose I’m cutting my own financial throat here, but since money and materialism are no longer my masters, I’m just too excited not to share this news with you:

Barnes & Noble, which typically has had higher prices than Amazon, now has moved beyond the digital giant in spades today, and is selling The Overland Triker for a much lower price of $17.81. That’s a savings of $4.14 over Amazon’s $21.95 – first time I’ve seen such a thing. And not only that, but Barnes & Noble also already has the cute little book thumbnail graphic showing, demonstrating that those folks are really on the ball. Way to go B&N.

Okay, now I know this looks bad, and that you’re probably thinking that I’m just tooting my own horn. I’m sounding like a salesman out to make a quick buck rather than a laid-back triker guy, but I don’t have any control over this pricing stuff, so when I see these numbers, I wish to spread the joy. Are you feeling joyous yet? When my body finally bids me a fond farewell, I hope it happens while on an overland trike journey in the middle of nowhere. If you find me, toss a copy of this book in the ground with my exhausted bones.

I’ve already received a couple of requests for a Kindle version of this book. I have not produced one yet, but have taken this under consideration. Leave comments to this post about your Kindle thoughts, both good and not so good. A few folks were not pleased with the Free On Three Kindle version, so I need to know if there is a consensus of thought out there. Thanks!


By the way, Amazon has some deal they are advertising where you can read the Kindle version of Free On Three for free. I have no idea what it entails, so if there’s a catch, reader beware.

    I don’t have a kindle but I do have a nook. I really love electronic books – and I’d love an electronic version of this book. It’s really nice to be able to carry multiple books in a lightweight, compact form.

    Howdy Heidi,

    Currently, The Overland Triker under contract with Amazon to be the only e-book availability so that the book may be checked out and read at no cost. This is a 90 day deal, and The Overland Triker just began its stint a few days ago, so I am not allowed to pursue a Nook version with Barnes & Noble for three months. All this considered, your options are a real book (nothing like snuggling into an easy chair to read the old fashioned way), or getting a Kindle and reading the book for free (it’s called the Prime program I think). I’ll keep your request in mind for when the Amazon deal expires and I am free to market e-books in other formats. I’m not sure if the Free On Three book is available on Nook or not, but somewhere recently, it seems I saw it offered that way. Keeping up with all the emerging technologies keeps life interesting! Thanks for writing. Now go for a trike ride! Take care.

    Hi Steve, you can not get “the overland Triker” in book forn from Barnes and Noble, I tried but they cancelled my order.

    Amazon has now matched Barnes & Noble pricing, so you can pick it up there for $17.81 at this writing.
