Kindle Freebies – July 13, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

Dessert soup. Yes, soup that is a dessert. I’ve had sweet soups in Chinese restaurants and, generally, speaking, liked them quite a bit. This book contain a nice variety of recipes, both hot and cold, that look fun to try.

A publisher, unanchor.com, decided to drop a boatload of free travel guides for cities such as Tokyo, Amsterdam and Beijing. Too many for me to list, so I just added the ones that interested me the most. You may be able to find the rest here, but keep in mind that Amazon’s best seller lists change hourly and freebies are only free for an unspecified amount of time. Get ’em while you can!

Below, you’ll also find some horror novels in honor of Friday the 13th. Add to that a couple of writing guides, and we’re all set for the weekend!

Fiction

  Scary Mary by S.A. Hunter
Mary just wants to be left alone, but the cheerleaders, jocks, and ghosts won’t stop harassing her. When new student Cyrus starts school, he tries to befriend her. That’s a rare thing for the school freak, but her unusual abilities put a rift in their budding friendship when she has to tell him that his home is haunted and not by Casper, the friendly ghost.

  Devil’s Lair by David Wisehart
Devil’s Lair is an epic fantasy set in Dante’s Inferno. A medieval knight leads a quest through Hell to recover the Holy Grail from the Devil. The knight, Marco da Roma, is joined by: Giovanni Boccaccio, an expert on Dante; William of Ockham, an English friar; and Nadja, an epileptic with the gift of prophecy. As the Black Death sweeps through Europe, these unlikely heroes confront the Devil–and their own demons–to forestall the Apocalypse.

  Monster Makers by C.V. Cook

Given the magical power to reanimate dead things, the boys are suddenly drawn into other-worldly battles. Will the boys use their power to defend their neighborhood? Or will they use it to get into trouble?

  Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
Hollowland – the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows. “This is the way the world ends – not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door.” Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way – not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

Disclaimers and Disclosures

I found these books via Amazon’s Kindle eBooks store. Resources for free Kindle and other format eBooks are listed in my sidebar.

These freebies are limited time offers, so there is no guarantee any of these books will still be free when you click on the links. Grab them sooner rather than later.

Books that I have previously listed will occasionally come up free again. I add those to my current list for people who didn’t see them the first time.
