The Goodreads group Support For Indie Authors has done it again! All January they’re featuring some amazing books by member authors on their events page (HERE). And to make your Friday the 13th even more fantastic they’ve rounded up some freakishly fabulous free fiction for you to fawn over. Whew! Glad that alliteration is over. 🤓
As I type this, there are 35 (yes, you read that right: thirty-five) different Amazon e-books available for FREE download. In addition to the freebies, there are a few dozen others available for purchase at Indie Author prices (translation: not very much moola). There’s even a bucketful of Kindle Unlimited bargains too!
Now, I’m not gonna lie: I’m a sucker for a free book. Who isn’t? And being on the inside, so to speak, I’ve been plotting and planning some downloads for a week or two. Wanna know the books I’m most eager to pick up? Well, here you go (in no particular order):
Gateway Drug by Rohvannyn Shaw
Blurb: When the meth addicts next door show signs of being affected by a supernatural force, Rowan becomes concerned. She’s a practicing Witch who’s majoring in Medieval History. This is something more horrifying than she has ever encountered before. The stakes are quickly raised when Rowan’s best friend also falls victim. It is up to Rowan to unravel the dark mysteries surrounding these events in order to rescue her friend.
Crimson Mistress by Ann Livi Andrews
Blurb: Having long ago abandoned her true identity and the idea of a normal life, Clementine has finally embraced her self appointed duty of protecting the city as the Crimson Mistress. But when Michael, a villain she put behind bars, escapes and puts a bounty on her head, she’s forced into hiding.
As her fear that her powers might be killing her begins to rise, Clementine faces a difficult choice: accept the villain’s offer to rehabilitate her or take Michael down for good.
The Eyes of the Sun by Christina McMullen
Okay, this one might be cheating, it’s been on my TBR and downloaded to my Kindle for some time, but this event reminded me how much I wanted to read it!
Blurb: New Orleans certainly has no shortage of vampire legends and after a few months in the French Quarter, Lucy Soriano was sure she had heard them all. But when a date with a handsome stranger takes a deadly turn, she quickly discovers that the truth is more terrifying than fiction. The real monsters are the creations of evolutionary advantage, not vivid imaginations.
But vampires aren’t the only ones with evolution on their side. An anomaly in her blood is found to be fatal to vampires and Lucy is swiftly recruited into shadow organization hell bent on eliminating the vampire problem once and for all. Vampirehunting does not come naturally and Lucy’s dangerous improvisations are quickly called out by Andre Garnier, a hunter who makes no secret of the fact that he opposes Lucy’s recruitment.
Soon it is discovered that The Eyes of The Sun, the oldest and most dangerous collective of vampires, are once again gaining ground and have infiltrated the very organization that is trying to stop them. The hunters have become the hunted and no one is to be trusted. Lucy and Andre are forced to set aside their differences for the sake of survival, but The Eyes of The Sun have an agenda that no one expected.
All the Nothing We’ve Done by Christina McMullen
Blurb: Chevelle Falsetto has died, struck down by the Number 48 bus. The very bus she should have been riding to work. Now, instead of explaining to her boss why she’s late, Chevelle finds herself explaining to Saint Peter why she’s early.
Obsessed by Alex Carver
Okay, another slight cheat! I’ve already read this short story, but it was a sneak peek before it was actually published. Now that it’s published I need to download, re-read & enjoy, then write up a quick review.
Blurb: When Kirsty is attacked on her doorstep after returning from a party, she is left to wonder who is responsible, and why.
A short story of approximately 8,000 words.
There are oodles & oodles more that have piqued my interest, so go check them out for yourself. And while you’re at it, snag yourself a copy of Mirror, Mirror. It’s free as part of the Friday the 13th festivities. My free promo will run from 1/13 all the way through Tuesday 1/17/17.
Happy reading! And remember: leave a review! We indies love them almost as much as our coffee. ☕️❤📚
