Once more, a Big Deal

"Fireball," Robert Matzen's definitive book on the January 1942 airplane crash that killed Carole Lombard and 21 others, again will be available at a deep discount this month. At his Facebook site, Matzen noted that last June, amazon.com made it part of that month's Big Deal. It was a win-win for both sides:

"As a result, 'Fireball' shot to #2 on the bestseller list and became the highest performer in the entire promotion. Amazon knows a good thing when they see it -- 'Fireball' has been chosen once again by Amazon for June Big Deal 2015 (June 12-28)! Here's another chance for Carole Lombard to be discovered by a new legion of summer readers."

So beginning Friday, visit amazon.com, search for "Fireball" and "Matzen," and you'll be able to pick up the book at a lower price.

Since last June, "Fireball" has continued to garner praise...and awards. In April, it won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Biography by the Independent Book Publishers Association (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/779384.html).

If you haven't read this compelling book yet, now's your chance to buy it while saving a few bucks in the process.
