Ebay holiday shopping with flash auctions

Bidding is fun - Falbe Publishing on ebay
I’ve been an ebay seller for years. I routinely sell paperbacks to ebay shoppers. Usually I run standard one-week auctions, but I have decided to run flash auctions as the holiday shopping season kicks off. By flash auction I mean that each auction will last one day and then close. This way bidders will know very quickly whether they won the item. I understand that a person looking for a gift may not want to wait a week to find out if he or she won. So, with one day auctions a person can feel comfortable bidding because there will not be a long wait involved. I’ll also enable instant purchases with the buy it now button for people willing to spend more to skip the bidding process.

I’ll be running the flash auctions from Tuesday November 22nd through Wednesday November 30th. This way I know everything will ship by the first week of December and I can guarantee delivery before December 25th.

After I end the flash auctions, I’ll go back to my regular weekly listings and add a notice that I can’t promise a Christmas delivery.

Find my current listings at:

Products that will be available during the flash auctions are:
Get Dicey: Play Craps and Have Fun – This is my nonfiction how to play craps guide. I used to work as a Las Vegas craps dealer a long time ago in a galaxy far away, so I actually am an expert at explaining this popular casino game. Get Dicey was the first book I self published and it has been steadily selling for years.

The Rys Chronicles complete series in paperback. This bundle includes four books: Union of Renegades, The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power.

If my readers who enjoyed my ebooks would like to get The Rys Chronicles in print, especially as a gift, my ebay listings provide a great way to get the novels at a low price.
