Al "Tank" (alkalar) | 114 comments Do you have a book coming out for free on Amazon or some other retailer (or know of one)? Is it a limited-time offer (days, not weeks)?

If so, this is the place to post it.

Also a place for people to snag free books to read.

Limit: the book must normally be for sale at a real price, not a perpetually free book. This is a place for special promotions only, not junk that won't sell otherwise.

Al "Tank" (alkalar) | 114 comments Asteroid Outpost by John Bowers Asteroid Outpost is FREE Friday and Saturday (4/19-20) at Amazon as a Kindle eBook.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AR7GG3Q

Nick Walker, ex Star Marine and fresh out of the United Federation Marshal Academy arrives on Ceres, part of the asteroid belt, with a laser pistol, a .44 Magnum, and a head filled with zero tolerance. He’s immediately plunged into a mystery of murder, sabotage, and fraud on a gigantic scale.

Nick is on his first assignment, confident he can tame the galaxy, bust the bad guys, and bring relief to the downtrodden. Reality check is just around the corner.

The Asteroid Belt is no place to raise a family—the Belt is the final refuge for fugitives, deadbeats, and creeps in general. Ceres, in particular, is a true den of iniquity, and law enforcement is a full time job.

To Nick, the law is the law, everything is black and white, and never the twain shall meet…

…or shall they? Nick is quickly confronted with the hard reality that sometimes good and evil can coexist, and not everyone is so easily classified. It’s a hard life on the final frontier, and even an idealistic young lawman might learn a few lessons.

The trick is staying alive long enough to learn them.

A science fiction adventure / crime drama filled with action and suspense.

Rated “R”
94,500 words, equivalent to 354 pages in a mass market paperback book.

"The action in Asteroid Outpost begins on page one and continues until the final page with zingers and twists and even some comedy in the midst of a mystery imbedded with unspeakable evil. The suspense is thrilling; the characters are totally believable; and I found myself rooting for the good Marshal in every incident." -Mary Elizabeth Fricke

Al "Tank" (alkalar) | 114 comments Jeremy's Run (L.A. Dark #1) by G.F. Gustav Jeremy's Run is free today through Friday on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CQU5SEK.

This isn't an AKW Books publication, but it's catching on so well, I thought you'd like to know.

Genre: Fiction, Suspense, Post-Apocalyptic Thriller

Five friends. West L.A. The power goes out, and everything with it. Civilization, as they know it, has ended. And they are in the worst place they could be, surrounded by looter gangs and millions who will soon be desperate and dying.

Young, fit, but ill-prepared, their choices are few and stark.

Jeremy’s Run, L.A. Dark, is the first installment of a serial story that chronicles an epic struggle of the human spirit to survive, to prevail over the odds, to retain one’s humanity, and to keep alive the hope for a new and better future.

A.C. Kavich (ackavich) The Twilight Swimmer by A.C. Kavich

Hello all! My name is AC Kavich, and my novel The Twilight Swimmer will be available on Amazon this week for FREE, from 9/16 to 9/20!

Here's the info:

“One year after her beloved sister drowned while swimming in cold New England waters, sixteen-year-old Brandi Vine is still struggling to understand what happened. As she mourns on the rocky beach where her sister's lifeless body washed ashore, she is unaware that a pair of haunting gray eyes is watching her from beneath rolling ocean waves.

When Brandi attends a party that goes horribly awry, the mysterious owner of the gray eyes emerges from the ocean depths and comes to her rescue. She only sees him for a few brief moments, but that's all it takes to turn Brandi's world upside down. What were the strange markings on his neck that seemed to flutter with every breath? How did he possess such inhuman strength and grace? And why did he look at Brandi with such longing?

Brandi's fascination with the Swimmer grows. She makes it her mission to find him again and learn who - and what - he is. Meanwhile, the Swimmer’s fascination with Brandi compels him to leave the safety of the ocean behind, to be with her at all costs. They are from two different worlds, but neither of the star-crossed romantics can resist the pull of the other.

As her feelings for the Swimmer swell beyond her control, Brandi comes to realize that only he can unlock the secret of her sister's final swim."

Thanks for your support! All friend requests welcome :)
