Happy Holidays Price Cut

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays.

To mark the season of giving, I’ve slashed the price on the digital version of The Mark of the Spider.

The Mark of the Spider - 3D

Starting December 17 and running through Christmas Eve, you can give an ebook of the Mark of the Spider to your favorite thriller or suspense reader for $0.99.

This is available only on Amazon and only on the ebook.

This price won’t last. (It’s already programmed to end by the time Santa arrives.)

So get cracking.

Kirkus Reviews calls The Mark of the Spider “an engaging thriller that successfully explores the implications of a wicked curse.” That’s a lot of story for just $0.99.

And readers have given it only five-star ratings.

Ninety-nine cents ($0.99) is almost free, and I’ve committed to not giving my books away. This is as low as it will go, and it won’t go on forever.

A candy bar costs more. A coffee costs more. A camera, air travel to Borneo and a black orchid all cost more. Much more, especially if your name is Sebastian Arnett.

This deal will be advertised internationally on The Fussy Librarian on December 18, and I expect a lot of demand. Get your copy before they run out.

Get your $0.99 ebook from Amazon now.

Thank you, and I wish you Happiness on your favored Holiday.

Full-price ($3.99) ebook editions are available for these platforms:
And you can always get a print copy from Amazon for $11.99.

Thanks to everyone who has picked up The Mark of the Spider, with a special side helping to those who also reviewed the adventure.

Here’s more of what they said:

New cover has Kirkus Reviews excerpt on top: “An engaging thriller … a wicked curse.”

I’m not a big sci fi fan but I LOVED this book! Was sucked right in trying to figure out what would happen next.


This is a thoroughly absorbing read and a fantastic escape novel. The book came alive with tremendous character development and an intriguing plot. I love it when a book like this appears and I am so engaged I can’t put it down.


Haase has given us a thoroughly enjoyable read that will have you furiously turning pages until the very end.


I’m a slow reader, so probably the most telling thing I can say about this book is that I finished it in a week. I simply could not put it down.

Again, thanks for the kind words.
