Free Kindle books for Halloween
Posted on October 29, 2012 (Subscribe to Blog)
As the title suggests, on this page you'll find not one, not two, but THREE fantasy/sci-fi Kindle books that will be available for free this Halloween.
These are offered as Brain Candy from Elder Tree Books who insists that you "take a Halloween vacation to a spookily different future, and two fabulous and freaky other worlds."
It's funny how this came about. I was planning another free promotion for Island of Fog around Halloween, and so were two other authors, A.E. Howard (the founder of Elder Tree Books) and Becca Campbell. So we all got together to help each other promote our books.
Since these books are free, you can also gift as many copies as you like to friends and family. Ebooks make great Christmas gifts! Tell everyone you know because the more downloads we get the better exposure you'll be giving us poor hard-done-by indie authors.
I hardly need to introduce Island of Fog to regular readers of this blog, but I will anyway just in case a welcome stranger chances across this page...
Island of Fog by Keith Robinson
FREE ON KINDLE OCTOBER 29, 30 AND 31
A lonely, foggy island is home to eight families. Twelve-year-old Hal and his friends have always wondered what happened all those years ago on the mainland, that unseen place Out There beyond the fog, and after an astonishing discovery in the woods the children are more determined than ever to find out what their parents are hiding. But their lives are turned upside down when Abigail reveals her closely guarded secret. According to her, the children are slowly changing into monsters! Are they freaks of nature, or subjects of a sinister experiment?
Each child reacts differently to his or her unique monstrous transformation; after all, one may feel proud to be a dragon, faerie, or centaur, but who in their right mind wants to be a sadistic manticore or cowardly harpy?
ISLAND OF FOG is a story of intrigue and conspiracy. The reader follows Hal Franklin as he struggles to accept that he and his friends are something more than ordinary children, and that their parents have been covering up the truth the whole time. With their trust shaken and the unexpected arrival of a strange woman from Out There, the children hide their frightening shapeshifting abilities and pretend nothing is wrong.
"I love it! The story is interesting throughout, and builds nicely to a reasonable explanation for all mysteries. Congratulations on a fine juvenile novel." —Piers Anthony's July 2009 Newsletter
"This is a well written sci-fi novel. There is that 'it could happen' quality that you find in Dean Koontz novels. The suspense works and doesn't frustrate the reader. It makes you want to read the next installment!" —Writer's Digest
Flight of Blue by A. E. Howard
FREE ON KINDLE OCTOBER 30 AND 31
A cursed traffic light. A rip in the fabric of the world. A possum sorcerer injured on a quest for revenge.
Kai and Ellie embark on a journey to return the sorcerer to his home. Entangled in events that could destroy the world, Kai must choose whether to accept the role he was born to play, but isn't sure he wants.
"Great adult reading in the tradition of Madeleine L'Engle and her A Wrinkle in Time series and Austin Family Chronicles." —Elizabeth Munzert
"Flight of Blue transcends my usual reading experience..." —Julie Jordan Scott
"There was something so magical about it..." —V. Cano
Not the Norm by Becca Campbell
Science fiction/Speculative fiction
FREE ON KINDLE OCTOBER 30 AND 31
Eden has a dangerous secret.
In a world where GenEns (enhanced humans) are the norm, her own ability is flawed. If anyone found out about the glitch in her genetic code, she'd be deemed a sub-norm, as one unfit to exist in the human race. Her certain fate would be extermination.
She always thought keeping her defect secret was her biggest struggle. That concern vanishes when her life is put in danger. Suddenly, fighting back is her only option, and she's completely unprepared.
Her only chance for survival is by wielding her damaged power. But fear and painful memories threaten to hold her back. What will happen to her if she unleashes the terror within?
A Sub-Normal short story. Approximately 6500 words.
"I loved this story. Campbell has succeeded again in populating her world with characters that I care about. I have read a lot of really bad writing recently, so it was with great pleasure that I read this story and was swept up in Eden's story." —Jason Sharp
"Becca J. Campbell has a knack for human connection and a driving interest in the individual flaws that do so much to define characters. As an author, she loves exploring these utterly mundane aspects of the human condition in fantastically imaginative environments." —Aaron Pogue"
So what are you waiting for? Get 'em for free while you can, folks! And if you like one or more of these books, please consider posting reviews on Amazon. Reviews don't have to be very long, and ratings are REALLY helpful to authors.
