As suggested by the wonderful Norma, I'm starting this thread for folks who would like to list a free coupon code they've generated from Smashwords, to entice reviewers to pick up their books.

Post away - same as book-a-post - give your book title, link to Smashwords page, a little blurb and the effective coupon code.

CHECK IN SIT DOWN SHUT UP is a snarky book of 16 travel "lessons" for those folks who'd like to get to their destination without their fellow passengers voting them off the plane. The book retails for $3.99 (USD) across all major retailers and hit the Kindle Hot New Release lists (several #1, one top ten) within a couple days of publication on 9/1/12. Warning: EXTREME snark!

Norma Budden (normabudden) Solely for members of this group who would like to provide a review:

A short while ago I published Abduction, a Second Chances Short Story, on Smashwords.

An overview:

Standing in line at the corner store, Tina's eyes were drawn to a young girl who looked like the girl who had been kidnapped that afternoon. All the signs pointed to her being the one - from the quiet crying, to the desperation to get away.

The police would never have time to get there. What could she do to ensure Mary was returned to her family? She didn't know - but she had to think fast.

The coupon code: HU67T

Thanks for any consideration you may give to reading and reviewing this title.

Stephen Ormsby (stephenormsby) Here is Long Lost Song -

A virus is decimating America today and Michael Decker is the culprit. Or is he?
Is it the work of a curse recorded into a song by 1930's blues musician Ricky Jensen?
Long Lost Song tells the story of Ricky and Michael as they battle their personal and real demons while the world reaches end times of biblical proportions.
One question remains. How do you stop a devil of a song made to break a crossroads deal?

Let me know if you would like to review it and I will send you a coupon.

Let Slip the Dogs of War: A Bard's Bed & Breakfast Mystery #1 by Sara M. Barton

On the tranquil shores of Lake Champlain sits the Bard's B & B -- not your typical vacation spot. Run by a Shakespearean scholar and a former bookstore owner, both with roots in the intelligence community, guests are often unruly, secretive, and occasionally downright dangerous. When a Syrian rebel leader's daughters are sent for safe-keeping, it's a spy free-for-all Shakespeare would have envied.

Clarissa Cartharn | 1 comments Hi All,

Here is the Smashwords coupon code of my young adult fantasy adventure fiction "Dynasty O'Shea"

NU63G at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

"In the perilous world of Spassenia where magic and power prevail over all who live in it, a battle rages for the throne of Gammalon. But what happens if those who can save the torn kingdom live in a world across dimensions?

When Jack O'Shea reveals an eighteen year old secret, his four children never imagined that they would be thrust through a magical gateway and into Spassenia. Their simple world is shattered as they realise that evil Lord Dravidor of Dark Vale is on a vindictive mission to kill their father, the man who stands in his way from claiming the throne of Gammalon.

But Jack will not return home without saving Gammalon and his children will not go back without their father. So when their names are also added to Dravidor's death warrants, the young O'Sheas must now take matters into their hands."

Coupon expires on 31/12/2012.

Happy Reading!

Norma Budden (normabudden) Hi All,

I released a book recently tackling the subjects of love and loss, followed by the detrimental effects of spousal abuse. Coming Unglued: A Mother's Journey into Hell is a fiction book inspired by true events and I'm seeking reviewers.

I realize some people have already bought the book and left their reviews but I'd like to see those numbers climb.

I can provide 10 coupons through Smashwords for people who don't own a Kindle. I am also willing to send 10 people an Amazon gift card (valued $3.99) for reviewing the book on Amazon.

Please let me know if you are interested. Send me your e-mail address at norma@normabudden.com and I'll be sure to get in touch with your Smashwords coupon code or your Amazon gift card.

For everyone who posts a review by December 31, 2012, your name will be entered for a draw to win a signed copy of the printed version of Coming Unglued. The draw will take place January 01, 2013.


P.S. It may be 18-24 hours before I check this post since I need to sleep and then work during the day tomorrow. :)

Enter the coupon code BR36Z to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view... dowlnload for free!!!

Summary: Daisuke Matsumoto here! I see you picked up my book. I knew you would because its awesome, inspirational, life changing, and its all about me!

Let’s start from the beginning. I was adopted by an old man who named me after his dead son, creepy right? He used to tell me stories of monsters who pose and animals and attack humans, also known as Obake. I thought he made it all up to scare me, but I just met a group of exorcists who confirmed my worst fear, Obake are real! If that wasn’t enough to freak me out I discovered Grandpa was up to some shady stuff, Sis has secrets stashed away, and any hot chick could be a monster plotting to rip my insides out.

God must hate me, because I don’t know my own past, my real name, and……Akito? Hey, what’s up with the knife Akito?

James Haresign | 3 comments Hi guys,

Fallowed Ground is a short sci-fi story and I would really appreciate some reviews.

It is a golden age for Human expansion as they spread across the galaxy, colonising any world they find that is suitable. There is no end to what humanity can accomplish, but arrogance has always been their downfall, and nobody stops to consider what might happen if they choose the wrong world.

The coupon code is XX29P, which is valid until the end of April

M.L. Weaver | 1 comments Anne, thank you for providing this wonderful opportunity.

I've created a 100%-off coupon code FG88R for The Lightness of Dust through Smashswords http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/...

The coupon is good through March 24, 2013.

I would appreciate the posting of honest reviews on Goodreads and Smashwords (and anywhere else!).

In ancient Anatolia, a young healer fights to reunite with her true love despite her father's desire to profit from her gift.

In Depression-era Seattle, the caretaker of the Persephone Music Hall finds inspiration for his art in the arms of a beautiful foreign violinist.

A university professor in modern-day California struggles to keep his lab and his marriage from the clutches of his enthusiastic new grad student.

A mysterious thread draws these lives together across the span of history and summons one of them toward an unspeakable fate. Follow the thread as mortal cares scatter with The Lightness of Dust.

Thanks, everyone!

Kurt Chambers | 8 comments Hi everyone :)

I would love any reviews on my epic fantasy adventure middle grade novel, Truth Teller. It is quite a short book at appro. 35,000 words. I would love feedback from my target audience (8-12) for anyone with children out there, but would equally love the feedback from adults also.

How could a modern day girl like Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? Even with her own vivid imagination, the place for other realms belongs in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thinks, until she stumbles across a hidden curio shop and an even stranger shopkeeper. He gives her a gift that resembles an antique snow dome, but this is not an ordinary globe. The world Charlotte has always known disappears as she’s spirited away into a mystical land.

This is the beginning of a lifelong friendship that changes Charlotte’s life forever. Discovered by a young elf alone in the forest, she embarks on a journey in search of a group of travelling Entertainers. She encounters heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new found companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin.

But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.

If you never chase the dream, how do you know it won’t come true? Thirty-three year old Kat Ruzinowski reunites with a former college friend to form an all-female band. However, trying to balance a band, art career, and a romance might prove to be more than Kat can handle.

Thanks & Enjoy!

Jordan Ehrlich | 2 comments FREE BOOK - "World of Shawn" by Jordan M Ehrlich ~
Coupon Code LS49H (Expires Ephiphany Tuesday 01/06/2015)

“Save the princess. Rescue the Kingdom.”
This is the story of a lonely kid who develops a computer game, using what little of quantum physics that he has read, that renders game levels from maps of any format; the result is just a little too realistic. When he tries to combine this "World of Shawn" with a favorite game of his childhood, "World of One," he soon finds Worlds colliding, to the detriment of his friends. Shawn must step up and rectify things, rescue the princess and save the World.

The interaction and constant dialogue between the characters in this story, as well as the humor and action intertwined, have drawn comparison to that in such works as "The Lord of the Rings," "Harry Potter," and "Narnia," so if a reader has an interest in any of those, as well as an interest in video games, either in the past or the present, it would be a safe bet that they would enjoy getting to know Shawn and his World!


"My wife bought this book for me and thought as a gamer that I might like it! Man was she right! Very exciting, non stop thrill ride. Very well thought out and constructed. Plot lines all make sense, and all are reoccurring thought the entire book. The book flowed really nicely and ends with some really good sequences tying the whole experience to a thrilling conclusion!!! Overall great read!!! Can't wait for this to become a summer blockbuster movie!!"

Nathaniel Stewart (nathanielstewart) Greetings!

Here is the code to get my eBook, "The Last Alignment: Cry of the Scorpions" free on Smashwords, and I would love any reviews.

Code: LJ67U
Link: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...


Hektor awoke standing naked and confused in the heart of a large crater.

Where was he?

Who was he?

But as his mind recovered and became clearer, memories started flooding back to him and reality set in; it’s not over.

Awbrey, Hudson, Androse, Zander, and Natalye have lived their entire lives knowing nothing of their families histories. Typical of most teenagers, right? However, when their parents and grandparents round them up and bring them to Arizona to explain to them why they are all “different,” emotions run high, and with teenagers, sentiment-filled expressions of betrayal and fear are never pretty.

Awbrey and Hudson are best friends. That is the only preexisting relationship between them. As they wait to be fetched by Hektor, a man that they’ve never even heard of, they discover that regardless of their personal feelings toward each other, their lives are so deeply entangled that they have no choice but to try and get along. For if they don’t pull it together, they as well as those closest to them won’t survive what is to come.
