The Kennedy Connection sold for a special price of just $1.99 on Kindle yesterday as part of a Kindle Daily Deal promotion -and it was definitely a fun ride for a day. Watched it shoot up the Amazon sales ranks - finishing in the Top 50 in some categories like historical thrillers, etc. Not bad for a book that came out three years ago. It's the first in the Gil Malloy series - and hopefully a lot of the people who bought it will enjoy getting to know Gil. Price is back to the regular $7.99 on Kindle now - but still worth it, people!
