A Barnes & Noble and Kensington Promotion and Sweepstakes!

Posted by Barb, who’s in Milwaukee today

From September 5 to October 5, Barnes & Noble and Kensington have teamed up to offer a special promotion–Buy 3 Kensington cozy mysteries and get 1 free!

But wait, there’s more!

Everyone who buys a Kensington cozy mystery from the B&N in-store display or any Kensington cozy mystery from BarnesandNoble.com between 9/5/17 – 10/5/17 and registers their purchase at http://sites.kensingtonbooks.com/kensingtoncozies/BN/ will:

  • Automatically be entered into Kensington’s “Cozy Mystery Bonanza” sweepstakes for a chance to win a $300 value gift basket. One grand prize winner will be selected after the sale has concluded.
  • Automatically receive a free Kensington Cozies recipe booklet plus a download code for the novel A STORY TO KILL by Lynn Cahoon after the sale has concluded.

But wait, there’s even more!

There’s a special end-of-the-aisle display featuring Kensington cozies at every B&N. Sherry Harris, Maddie Day (aka Edith Maxwell), and Barbara Ross all have their latest mysteries on the shelf!

We thought it would be fun for some of the Wickeds to get their photos taken with this special display.

Here we are!

Edith at the Newington, NH B&N

Edith: My closest B&N is in New Hampshire, and when I asked an employee where mystery section was, she led me to the cozies. I pointed to When the Grits Hit the Fan, said it was my book, and asked if she would take my picture. But the end cap was so close to a perpendicular row she couldn’t get back far enough to snap the whole thing!

Look for this sign on the end cap

Sherry: I stopped by my local Barnes and Noble In Fairfax, Virginia where I’ve celebrated the release of all four of the Sarah Winston Garage Sale mysteries.

Here’s a closer look at the books!

All the books

Barb: I stopped at the B&N in Peabody, Massachusetts on my way from Boothbay Harbor, Maine to Logan Airport.

As with Edith, we couldn’t get far enough back from the display to get the whole display, so I’m glad Sherry did.

The Wicked’s books

If the display is a success for B&N and Kensington, they’ll repeat. Since all the Wickeds will have Kensington books soon, we hope it goes on and on.

Readers: Take advantage of the special if you can and don’t forget to register your purchase for a chance to win the gift basket, short story, and recipes!

Tell us if you spied this end cap in your local B&N, and where it is. We’d love to see a pic of you with the array, too!







36 Thoughts

  1. Oh poop! I ordered from Buy 3, get 1 sale as soon as it started on the 3rd. If I had known I would have waited a few days. 🙁

  2. I stopped in my local B&N last week, but I didn’t see it. They probably didn’t have it up yet since I stopped by on the 7th, and my store is notoriously behind. Either that, or I conducted a “Mark search” and walked right by it.

    I have several Kensington books I need to buy, but there’s only one in this list that is on my list to buy. I’m bummed about that, but I will buy it and register it so they know people are interested in their cozies.

  3. Chestertown doesn’t have a B&N, just an independent bookseller (down from the three we used to have), a few paperbacks at the drug stores, and the local library sales.

  4. I saw the display and bought 4 mysteries but they weren’t all from the display. I already read or pre-ordered the Wicked’s books.

  5. I was at B&N the first day! Did you notice a couple of mine are there? I’m late posting this becauSe the power just came back. Irma has kept us in the dark since Sunday!

  6. I have my trip to B&N planned for this week! My only problem…I want to buy them all! I have seriously read this post and looked at the pics 100x! Hehee! Thank you and great job, ladies!! 🙂

  7. No display at my BN, sad to say. Will register my receipt so they can track the purchase from there!
