2012 has been an incredible year for Gospel eBooks. We’ve been awed by the growth of the site this year. We’re so grateful for you, our readers that you keep coming back to find and buy books for your Kindle through us. Thank you. Seriously. Thank you.
To celebrate an amazing year, we thought we’d let you know some of big things that’s happened with this site in 2012 along with some interesting stats.

What was Gospel eBooks favourite deal of the 2012?
There were so many amazing deals and great freebies offered this year. It may seem like a hard choice to pick just one deal, but it’s not. In April David C. Cook gave us a phenomenal freebie that easily takes the #1 spot for our favourite of 2012. For 48 hours they gave away all three of Francis Chan’s bestsellers (Crazy Love, Forgotten God & Erasing Hell). It’s deals like that, that make e-reading so irresistible.
In March 2012 we had a new logo designed. I (Jeremy) created our first logo and although I thought it was pretty good, when compared to our new logo it looks really bad. Our new logo was designed by Quincy Harriman who won the design contest on 99designs.com. He did such a great job we hired him to do more graphics for us including business cards, a poster and some banners too.
In June 2012 we had the uber-talented Seun Jubril create a promo video for us. He did an amazing job!
In July 2012 we started a Street Team. Quincy created an awesome poster and card for us and you all flocked to help us get them out. We’re so grateful for the 90 of you that signed up to join us. You put posters up in seminaries, christian schools, your churches and workplaces. We loved hearing from you about how you were sharing Gospel eBooks.
In October 2012 we celebrated our 2nd Birthday. We give away a prize each day that week ending with a grand prize of a brand new Kindle Paperwhite.
In November 2012 we had our very first author Google Hangout. Together with New Leaf Publishing group we had a great chat with Ray Comfort, had his book discounted & gave away another Kindle Paperwhite but this time stocked with 150 books (thanks New Leaf).
THANK YOU FOR SUCH AN AMAZING YEAR! We’re excited about what 2013 will have in store. We’re looking forward to more contests, more Google Hangouts, more surprises and more amazing Christian e-Book deals.
