Free and bargain Kindle books! (Sunday Nov 24)

Twelve Years a Slave, by Solomon Northup. (Still 0.99?)

"This book is a masterpiece of history, of one man's life. Mr. Northrup was a free black man with a beautiful wife and two daughters living in Saratoga, NY. He was lured from his home by slave traders who specialized in the awful practice of kidnapping free black citizens and selling them into slavery. Torn from his home and family, Mr. Northrup endured the worst that can happen to a human being. And yet, he remained fair and honest, never stooping to the level some of his masters did. This book will shock you, but you will be the better for having read it. My highest of fives." -- Amazon reviewer


First published in 1853, Twelve Years a Slave is the narrative of Solomon Northup’s experience as a free man sold into slavery. Northup’s memoir reveals unimaginable details about the slave markets, the horrors of life on a plantation, and the dreadful day-to-day treatment of the slaves from the perspective of a man who lived more than thirty years as a free man before being forcibly enslaved.
Written in the year after Northup was freed and published in the wake of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Northup’s story was quickly taken up by abolitionist groups and news organizations as part of the fight against slavery. The book fell into obscurity in later decades, only to be rediscovered in the early 1960’s. In 2013 it was adapted into a feature film entitled 12 Years a Slave, directed by Steve McQueen and produced by Brad Pitt. Pitt also played a supporting role in the film, alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti and Sarah Paulson.

On the evening of Sofia Claremont's 17th birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
 

A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
 

An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

Hook: Why Websites Fail to Make Money, by Andrew McDermott. (Still free?)

"This book made me see my business from a whole different perspective. My online business has been at a low point lately and I've been researching like crazy to figure out why. I'm very happy I found this book because it really touches on a lot of things I never would have thought about otherwise, like the whole psychology behind attracting customers. I plan on putting some of these strategies to use right away and I'm pretty confident that they will be effective. This was a great read. Would recommend to anyone trying to grow their online business." -- Amazon reviewer

Most websites will struggle (and fail) to make money.
Your website is a digital lighthouse for your business. It's meant to attract and guide customers to you. Naturally, it impacts the success of your marketing efforts and dictates whether people will actually buy from you.
The problem? Most websites are getting it wrong.
It's not your fault. But the fact remains, most of us have been lied to. We were trained to give customers the direct opposite of what they need.
In Hook Why Websites fail to make money, you'll learn:
  • Why customers don't seem to care about your solution to their problems
  • Why they always seem to resist - even when they need your help
  • How to fascinate and attract the type of customers you want
  • The inevitable part of selling that gets worse when you avoid it
  • Why it's a struggle to "seal the deal" and close the sale
  • Presentation conflicts that prevent customers from buying
  • How to move customers through the buying process naturally, without coercion or manipulation.
Hook shares answers to these problems in two parts, Story and Method. Each part offers different, yet complimentary lessons on why websites fail, how customers buy and ultimately, how to change things for the better.
