The Intuitives, by Erin Michelle Sky & Steven Brown
Our free promotion of The Wendy was an epic success! No, wait. A legendary success! We’re talking Indiana Jones pulling out his gun and shooting the guy with the sword kind of success. Or injured Karate Kid Daniel beating Cobra Kai Johnny’s ass with a Hail Mary crane kick kind of success. Maybe even “Use the Force, Luke” destroying the Deathstar kind of success.
Well, it feels that amazing to us. Our goal for the promotion was to giveaway 5,000 copies, with a stretch goal of 10,000. Instead, we gave away forty thousand books! We’re completely blown away. To say thank you to our amazing reading community (which just got a whole lot bigger than our former VW bus load), we have a few more surprises in store, starting today!
First, we’re setting the ebook price on The Wendy at 67% off (only $1.99) for a while instead of going straight back to full price. So if you want to recommend it to your friends, they can still get a great deal on a “bestselling” read. (Wait. Can you sell a book that’s free? Hmm… bestdownloading read? Bestgiving read? Yeah, okay. We’ll work on it. If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments.)
Second, we’ve set the ebook price on our other title, The Intuitives, at $2.99 for a limited time (also 67% off the digital price) to encourage you–nay, to entice you– to give that one a try too. The blurb is below, so check it out. (Is it good? Hey, we both love it, but we’ll let you decide. It’s cheaper than buying us a coffee, and you’ll get more out of it than you would by sitting around watching us drink that coffee. We’re really not that exciting to watch.)

From the Publisher:
IMAGINATION JUST BECAME OUR GREATEST WEAPON.
In Egypt, an archaeological team discovers the lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Seven years later, every public school student in America takes a strange new test, but only six are chosen to attend a summer program at the mysterious Institute for the Cultivation of Intuitive Cognition, where nothing is as it appears to be, including the students themselves.
Roman Jackson, 11—the lonely artist.
Sees things. Around people. Things he can never, ever tell.
Samantha Prescott, 16—the sarcastic nerd.
Isolated by a premonition even she doesn’t understand.
Daniel Walker, 17—the shy musician.
Hides his private thoughts in the soundtrack of his mind.
Kaitlyn Wright, 15—the bubbly engineer.
Can fix anything, except the one thing that matters most.
Mackenzie Gray, 17—the disciplined athlete.
Armors her deepest fears against a world she can’t control.
Ashton Hunt, 17—the frustrated gamer.
Hoping to turn pro, and a constant disappointment to his father.
But why is the U.S. government so interested in six outcasts? And what, exactly, is it teaching them to do? Now, they must band together to uncover the true purpose behind the institute—and the ancient secrets that lie hidden beneath its surface…
Before history catches up to them.
