Deep Background chosen as BookBub Featured Deal

Rick Treon’s debut novel was recently chosen as a BookBub Featured Deal for the website’s thriller category, according to publisher Black Rose Writing.

The Kindle version of Deep Background, which was awarded the 2019 PenCraft Award for Literary Excellence in Suspense, will be free on March 16 for all Amazon customers in the United States.

“I’m incredibly grateful my novel is getting this kind of national exposure,” Treon said. “The thought that my book will be downloaded by so many new readers is exciting.”

According to its website, BookBub’s Featured Deals reaches millions of readers each day via emailing a curated list of discounted ebooks targeted by category.

“Our team of editors picks each day’s Featured Deals from hundreds of partner submissions, ensuring we only feature great deals on quality ebooks,” the website says.

The site’s thriller category has nearly 2.8 million subscribers with an average of more than 23,000 downloads a day when a featured book is offered for free, according to BookBub.

This is Treon’s second BookBub selection. Deep Background was chosen in September for a BookBub International Featured Deal in the thriller category and was available for 99 cents on Amazon.

The novel, which was released in December of 2018, was ranked in the top 50 for all books on Canada’s Kindle chart on September 22.

This is also the second of Treon’s titles that will be available for free this month.

Publisher Fawkes Press is giving away digital copies of Treon’s novella, Live with the Truth, to all of his newsletter subscribers through March 31. It releases April 1 on Amazon as a Kindle.

The story is a prequel to the author’s new Bartholomew Beck thriller series with Fawkes Press, beginning with the July 4 release of the novel Let the Guilty Pay.

Let the Guilty Pay is available for preorder in paperback and ebook wherever readers purchase their books.
