Halloween Already

Free Today on Amazon

People seem real excited about Halloween this year. Several friends have eagerly carved their pumpkins, only to have them disintegrate into piles of smelly goo. I went to IKEA on Wednesday and saw a young woman (a customer) dressed as a witch. At dinner last night, a girl in the booth across from ours was wearing zombie makeup. And speaking of such, Denver’s 7th Annual Zombie Crawl is happening this Saturday, October 20. I love the address of the website: eyeheartbrains.com.

I thought I’d get in on the act and find some Halloween and horror-related freebies. There were plenty to be had on Amazon. These were the ones I chose.

  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.

  Scraping the Bone: Ten Dark Tales by William Malmborg
Ten dark tales that step into the shadows of humanity that few dare to enter. REDSTONE LAKE – a newlywed couple ventures to a family cabin in the woods that conceals a disturbing incident from the past.

JACOB’S GIFT – a boy takes a midnight tip to the graveyard to dig up his brother who he believes is still alive.

  The Turtle Boy by Kealan Patrick Burke
School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery. But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond, a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks, everything changes.

  The Deepest Cut by J.A. Templeton
Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother’s life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she’s somehow responsible for her mom’s death, Riley is desperate to see her mother’s elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness. When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn’t get worse–that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley’s falling hard for Ian.

Kindle Freebies – June 25, 2012

Today I Loaded My Kindle With…

A book I’ve had my eye on for awhile. I’d just made my mind up to buy “You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One)” and it showed up in the freebies on Sunday. Woot! I’ve already read half of it. Great motivational stuff. The link is below.

I must be in a eclectic mood today. I picked up a sort-of travel book about the expat life in France and a sort-of cookbook about how to buy and brew kopi luwak coffee. What is kopi luwak coffee? It’s the most expensive coffee in the world and it comes out the nether end of a weasel. Not kidding. People pay top dollar (or euro, yen, whatever currency) for this stuff. I once happened to go to a cafe that offered this coffee for $25 a cup. Err, no. But it is fascinating and I would love to read more about it.

Fiction is mostly fantasy with the exception of a short story by a well-known scifi author, Peter F. Hamilton. I’ve listed two books titled “Bound.” Both are YA fantasy, so don’t be thinking “Fifty Shades of Grey!”

Fiction

If at First . . . by Peter F. Hamilton
It starts in 2007 with a break-in. The victim: Marcus Orthew, the financial and technological genius behind Orthanics, the computer company whose radical products have delivered a one-two punch to the industry, all but knocking PCs and Macs out of the ring. The perpetrator: a man obsessed with Orthew. Just another simple case of celebrity stalking—or so everyone assumes at first, including Metropolitan Police Chief Detective David Lanson. But when Lanson interviews the suspect, he makes a startling claim: Orthew is from the future. Or, rather, a future—a parallel timeline. Thus begins the ride of a lifetime for Lanson, as his pursuit of the facts tumbles him headlong down a rabbit hole—and the hunter finds himself hunted.

The Written (Emaneska Series) by Ben Galley
Something has gone missing from the libraries of Arfell. Something very old, and something very powerful. Five scholars are now dead, a country is once again on the brink of war, and the magick council is running out of time and options. Entangled in a web of lies and politics and dragged halfway across icy Emaneska and back, Farden must unearth a secret even he doesn’t want to know, a secret that will shake the foundations of his world. Dragons, drugs, magick, death, and the deepest of betrayals await.

Bound (#1 in The Crystor Series) by C.K. Bryant
When a photo shoot ends in tragedy, Kira discovers her best friend, Lydia, has been keeping a secret. Knowing the truth, and accepting it, will change Kira’s life forever and thrust her into a world of ancient curses, magical objects, and savage enemies. What happens next will challenge everything Kira knows about her world, herself and the shape-shifting warrior she’s falling in love with. No longer the timid mouse her mother accused her of being, but a woman who finds the mental and physical strength to endure and survive.

Bound, An Arelia LaRue Novel by Kira Saito
Sixteen year old Arelia LaRue lives in New Orleans where the music is loud, voodoo queens inhabit every street corner, and the ghosts are alive and well. Despite her surroundings, all she wants is to help her Grand-mere Bea pay the rent and save up for college. When her best friend Sabrina convinces her to take a well-paying summer job at the infamous Darkwood plantation, owned by the wealthy LaPlante family, Arelia agrees. However, at Darkwood strange things start to happen, and gorgeous Lucus LaPlante insists that he needs her help. Soon, the powers that Arelia has been denying all her life, come out to play and she discovers mysteries about herself that she could have never imagined.

The Soulkeepers by G. P. Ching
When fifteen-year-old Jacob Lau is pulled from the crumpled remains of his mother’s car, no one can explain why he was driving or why the police can’t find his mother’s body. A beautiful and mysterious neighbor offers to use her unique abilities to help him find his mom. But in exchange she requires Jacob to train as a Soulkeeper, a protector of human souls. He agrees to her demands, desperate for any clue to the mystery of his mother’s disappearance. But soon Jacob finds himself trapped in a web of half-truths, and questions her motives for helping him.

Nonfiction

Best of Blog in France by Stephanie Dagg
Five years ago we left our large, brand new house in Co. Cork, which we’d built ourselves, for a two-hundred-year-old hovel in Creuse, France (actually, two, plus a crumbling barn, and not forgetting 75 acres of land and lakes). Why, oh why? Why did we aspire to go down in the world, to leave the country where we could communicate successfully and actually use our painstakingly acquired professional qualifications to make a living? Why did we abandon all that and go abroad where, at least at first, we would be scratching a living so far below the poverty line as to be complete out of sight of it? Insanity? Bloody-mindedness? Misguided romanticism? The spirit of adventure? None of the above. Quite simply – necessity. It was the only thing to do.
