I know some authors would like to give away free books in return for possible reviews (see Amazon's policy below). I will create a thread so authors can post their books here, and readers can reply, but please note a few rules (and follow the FTC rules too):

1) If you are using Amazon for the free book promotion, please follow Amazon's policy on Promotions and Commercial Solicitations, which essentially states the following:

"Book authors and publishers may continue to provide free or discounted copies of their books to readers, as long as the author or publisher does not require a review in exchange or attempt to influence the review."

2) No author can demand that a "good" review be given for the free book. All reviews must be honest and reflect the true opinion of how the reader felt about the novel.

3) If a bad review is given, the author must accept that that is the way the reader felt about the story. Authors cannot badger the readers about the review. (This goes for the quality of the review too.)

4) Authors agree to manage 100% of the giveaway if they post books here. This means they will pay for the book & postage, and handle all aspects of getting the necessary info from readers. (This is not handled by the moderator.)

5) Readers, please be specific as to what book you'd like to review. There will be many authors and books on this thread. (You might want to email the author on Goodreads.)

6) Readers, please post the review as soon as you finish reading the book (within a reasonable time). You can work it out with the author in terms of where the review should be posted.


Thanks!

May readers find wonderful novels, and may authors find the reviews they need!

Cindy Lyle (CindyLyle) Hi, so I guess I'm the first to post here, awesome!
My novel is titled 'The Dragon Within".
It is a fantasy which follows the journey of a young woman named Karah and her home world of Eiddoril. Eiddoril is dying, and it’s only hope rests on her shoulders. Her journey starts when she seeks the meaning behind her strange dreams. Her questions lead her to the discovery that her dreams are not really dreams but in fact are memories of a life that has been stolen from her. Karah also discovers that she is not human but part of a long forgotten race now absent from the lands of Eiddoril. Karah embarks on a life-changing quest to discover the truth about herself and the way to defeat her most deadly enemy. But as she gets closer to the truth, she begins to realize that her part in the future of Eiddoril may not be to save it but to help destroy it.
If you are interested I would love some reviews. I can offer free PDF files. You can reach me at mydragons2012@yahoo.com or just send me a message here on goodreads. Thanks Vincent for this folder and thanks to all my potential readers!

Underneath. ('tis a thriller)
Underneath by Michael Cargill

Look at the person sitting just across from you. It doesn’t matter whether they’re a loved one, a friend, or a complete stranger.

Now look at their face. Are they happy? Are they sad? Or are they angry? Can you even tell?

How well do you actually know the people closest to you?

Have you ever seen the real person that lies just underneath what you see…?

Pete Planisek | 51 comments Hello. Thank you Vincent for starting this thread. I just released my debut novel, Frankenstein A Life Beyond, last month. Currently it is only available as an ebook (Kindle, ePub for iPad or iPhone, and Nook versions).

The basic plot summary is:
Ten years after the loss of his entire family to madness and death, Ernest Frankenstein finds himself compelled to return to the city of his birth, Geneva, in order to discover if his elder brother, Victor, might still be alive. Only Victor can provide the answers to questions, which have long plagued Ernest. The quest for answers will force Ernest to confront demons, both internal and external, from his past, which refuse to be at peace and which ultimately will endanger both he and his new family. Hunted across Europe their only hope may lie with a French spy, Ernest’s childhood friend, and a mysterious gypsy girl whose people believe that Ernest will lead humanity to its salvation or final destruction.

Frankenstein A Life Beyond by Pete Planisek is the first direct sequel to Mary Shelley’s iconic story, Frankenstein, which examined Victor Frankenstein’s quest to both create and kill an unnamed creature that ultimately destroys all but one member of the Frankenstein family, Victor’s brother, Ernest. Frankenstein A Life Beyond explores many of the issues left open by the original, while establishing new characters and mysteries.

Join the new adventure by purchasing Frankenstein A Life Beyond, the first installment of a three book story.

Sean | 8 comments Hi everyone,
My kindle ebook 'Beer Goggles' has been available for just over a month on kindle select and has already received four excellent reviews, as well as being featured on a couple of blogs; but more exposure can never hurt, so I have decided to make it free on Saturday and Sunday 29th and 30th September.

I am interested in how the goodreads members take to it and would appreciate any reviews you care to write.

It is a comedy-thriller/mystery novel with very British humour. If you like to laugh at witty dialogue and surreal situations this might be for you.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beer-Goggles-...

or

http://www.amazon.com/Beer-Goggles-eb...

Here is the product description:

“Useless, useless bastards!”

With a thunderstorm replacing the forecasted warm sunshine, Travis’s day started badly. He hoped a trip to Blackpool, with his friend Dave, would lift his spirits.

He would be wrong.

After encountering 'Uncle Fester', a naked gardener wielding a rake, and an incontinent dog, he should have turned the car around and gone home. Instead, Dave suggests a visit to the pub, where teetotaller Travis discovers a taste for alcohol.

If the opposite of serendipity existed, this would be it.

An hour later, someone calls Dave an ambulance.

Things go downhill from there.

Subsequently arrested for breaking and entering whilst wearing gorilla suits (and who knew that would be illegal), they have to convince the police they have been witness to the murder of a beautiful woman. Or have they? Or could it be, like the police suggest, a bad case of Beer Goggles?

Beer Goggles is an epic (hangover) tale of (half)wit(s) and (dutch) courage, where, thanks to the delights of alcohol, nothing is quite what it appears and where the wrong decision could cost Travis and Dave their lives.

If you like a good romp as much as you love a good yarn, Beer Goggles should be your tipple of choice.

Enjoy responsibly!

Sari Krosinsky (sarikrosinsky) | 10 comments I'll send a free pdf or hard copy of my first book of poetry, god-chaser, to reviewers on request. Here's one of the blurbs:

“Sari Krosinsky’s debut collection is a pilgrimage in finely wrought stanzas to a pantheon of pain-in-the-ass deities: gods, goddesses, and good old G-d from Mount Olympus, O.T., and a bus station in Philly. ‘A universe can burst from one man,’ writes Krosinsky, and in god-chaser she startles us with a glimpse of her own universe and the multifarious beings zapping and flinging and blinding and cajoling and otherwise doing their best to wreak havoc. Krosinsky is, in the end, lover, appeaser, eternal poet: ‘You, don’t be that vengeful god,/with eternal fire that isn’t light, and I’ll belong/to you. I’d pour some coffee for you,/but they say you won’t take sacrifices/since the Temple is gone. Taste it/through my tongue.’ This book is a pleasure and a gift.”

Wander Home Wander Home by Karen A. Wyle

The Blurb:

-------------------

Death is what you make it. . . .

Eleanor never wanted to leave the daughter she loved so much. The overpowering urge to wander -- to search, without knowing what she sought -- drove her away. She left little Cassidy in her family's loving care. But Cassidy and the others died in an accident before Eleanor could find her way home.

Cassidy has her grandparents, and her Great-Grandma. And all of them have what may be eternity. Memories can be relived, or shared. The wonders of the world they left behind are only a thought away. The one-way tyranny of aging is no more -- a white-haired and stooped great-grandmother one moment can be a laughing young playmate the next. But nothing can ease Cassidy's longing for her mother; and Eleanor's parents know better than to hope that Eleanor's life has been a happy one.

Now, they are all reunited, with the chance to understand and heal. But the restlessness that shaped Eleanor's life still haunts her in death. Somehow, she must solve the mystery of her life -- or none of them will be at peace.

Matthew McFarland (MatthewWMcFarland) | 22 comments Hi folks, I'm offering an ebook in whatever format you like in exchange for honest reviews of my book on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. Of course if you want to leave reviews anywhere else then it's up to you.

here is the blurb:

Fifty/Fifty and Other Stories is a collection of eleven outstanding short stories by Northern Irish author Matthew W. McFarland.

In 'Fifty/Fifty', a policeman is called out to an attempted suicide on the iconic Forth Rail Bridge. His previous experience with 'jumpers' has led to one death and one life saved - his current record is fifty/fifty, but all that is about to change.

In 'Defenestration', a man is thrown from the twelfth storey of a building in mysterious circumstances. As he falls towards almost certain death, he contemplates his fate, killer whales, flying cats, and the untapped potential of the human mind.

In 'The Burning Bar', a man enters a burning building to rescue the love of his life, and becomes trapped, as the whole place collapses around him. Will he manage to escape before it is too late?

'What Have You Done?' deals with the legacy of the conflict in Northern Ireland, as a civil servant comes face to face with an ex-terrorist, leading him to discover how the previous generation coped with living through the worst of the Troubles.

These, and seven other stories, touching on sport, fatherhood, arachnophobia, faith, and cannibalism, make up an exciting collection of short fiction which will leave readers wanting more.Fifty/Fifty and other stories

Lauren Marrero | 1 comments Hello,
My names is Lauren Marrero and I am the author of Seducing the Laird, a historical romance set in the early Renaissance. Please message me if you would like a copy for review.

Seducing the Laird by Lauren Marrero

Beautiful and skilled, Verena is the perfect temptress for hire—and the ruthless English Lord Gundy knows it. When she’s sent to seduce Cairn McPherson—Gundy’s enemy and key to a fabled Scottish treasure—Verena never expects her prey to be such a brave, honorable man. And she never expects to have to choose between her family of spies and the one man who could win her love.

Nearly destitute, Cairn is set on raising his once-thriving clan from the ashes. His final hope is the lost McPherson treasure, rumored to be hidden somewhere in his dead father’s castle. Though she has nursed him back to health, can he really trust Verena to stand loyally by his side—or is there a treachery in her heart that could destroy the McPhersons once and for all?


message 23: by Nancy (last edited Oct 04, 2012 07:30PM) (new)

Nancy Jarvis (screalwriter) | 56 comments Maybe you can help me figure out the genre for this book even if you don't want to read it. Mags and the AARP Gang tells what happens when eigthy-three year old Mags and twenty-one other residents of a low income senior mobile home part face eviction because the park is about to be foreclosed. Some of them---octogenarians all---decide the only reasonable thing to do is rob the bank that holds the mortgage in order to pay it off and save their homes. (There was some political hanky-panky and corruption that got the park in such a mess.)

Mags is a pistol. Her gang members include Harvey, a charmer of the first order and her best friend, Jean, a sensible master baker and Mags' second best friend, Larry a larger than life man prone to overacting, and Melvin the widowed writer and odd duck who is trying to rewrite Phantom of the Opera to produce an ending he likes better than the Webber version.

The book has funny scenes, a scary scene, revenge, and a trial. What do you think?

Dee Doanes (deedoanes) | 4 comments The Man With the Green Suitcase by Dee Doanes

Dee Doanes
Paranormal, Mystery


What does...

A prostitute,
A corrupt businessman, and
A disfigured young woman

Have in common with a mysterious, old
homeless man who carries a green suitcase?

The old man comes into people’s lives because it is
important for them to experience the visions that he is somehow able to show them—visions that even he doesn’t understand. But whoever he connects with will go through a transformation that will change the course of their life,for better or worse. The old man has no memory of who he is or even what the suitcase holds.

This story is magical realism, realistic with paranormal elements,a mystery that needs to be solved, and a man and woman who will finally realize that they were meant to come into each other’s lives
and remain forever.

Prefer you be in the US since other countries don't post to Amazon US. I offer a PDF or Mobi copy. Please post on Good Reads,www.amazon.com/author/deedoanes, and your blog (if you have one). Email at: thegreeensuitcase@gmail.com

I would say a book like this could fall under 'general' and 'humor'. The term 'general' is fairly commonly used. Contemporary fiction is the other choice. So 'general contemporary fiction - humor' should do it.


message 27: by Nancy (new)

Nancy Jarvis (screalwriter) | 56 comments Hi Steve and Mall,
Thanks for the suggestions. I'm hoping to figure out some smaller categories, too, so the book has a chance of being seen on Amazon lists. For example, I have written four mysteries. "Mysteries" is a huge category but I can add "women sleuths" and the category, while still large is smaller.

Sean MacUisdin | 61 comments Would be thrilled to send out a copy of my dystopian science fiction, The Scarlet Bastards.

"“Breathe deeply, jawan, it shall be your last.”

So was the memorable opening dialogue of The Scarlet Bastards, the memoirs of a young man named Alexander ”Sikunder” Armstrong. A seventeen year old runaway from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, “Sikunder” fled the tedium of a well planned life to the frigid dystopian wastes of the Serberor Campus on the distant colony of Samsāra some 20 light years from Earth. Here, as a jawan in the United Nations Off-World Legion, “Sikunder” experiences the dumping ground of the refugee camps of the United Nations; where tribes and warlords rule with an iron fist and life is cheap and easily lost.

Come join “Sikunder” as he fights pirates on the decks of a paddlewheeler, teaches the finer points of the j-stroke to his decuria leader, MacShaka the Tartan Zulu, and encounters members of the villainous Chinese gang, The Black Hand, after a bottle of bad pinot noir and a plate of the foulest fish in the Seleucus Lacus!"

Kasi Blake (KCBlake) | 44 comments In celebration of the third book's release, I am giving away free digital copies of the first in the series. What is it about?

They don't call him Jackpot for nothing.

Seventeen-year-old Jack always beats the odds... at least until now. When a werewolf tried to kill him ten years ago, vampires saved his life. At first he was grateful. Then he realized he couldn't go home to his brother, couldn't return to his old life. Humans can become vampires; vampires can't become mortal again, but somehow Jack gets lucky. Like a cat, he always lands on his feet. He wakes up one morning without fangs, and the sunlight doesn't set him on fire. This is it, his dream, only it's real this time. What could possibly go wrong?

Enter a pretty hunter with dark secrets, a brother who wants to stake him just to be on the safe side, and a psychotic werewolf. Now we have a party.

Any boy or girl of teenage years is kept in Quarantine, for fear of the parasite-spreading monsters they might become. These Quarantines are rigid societies, built on a foundation of authority and desperate force -- disruption brings punishment. Rebellion is not tolerated.

Until a boy named Sam walks in and everything... changes.

Mark Barber | 3 comments My book 'Bad At Being Bad'(Kindle edition) is available on Amazon. If I get enough interest I will arrange a promotional day so you can download it for free to review.

The Blurb:
Living with his parents - rent-free, jobless, and on the dole - life is stress-free and easy. However, watching the world go by has not made Steve any less opinionated, especially on important and pressing issues such as social networking sites and daytime TV.

But fate is about to deal another hand. Motivated by the fear of losing his benefits and precious beer money, and enticed by an exotic-sounding location, Steve takes a job that is not quite what it seems…

Thrust into a surreal world of pen-pushing lunatics, he discovers that bureaucracy has not only gone mad, but also very bad. And there is more to his psychotic boss than meets the eye. With under-performing colleagues disappearing, simply being at work seems to be an occupational hazard.

Is it is possible to be bad at being bad? Steve is about to find out in this hilarious and outspoken take on business and survival in today’s crazy and hectic world.

I tried to download the free preview to show you that I have interest in your book. Nook and Kindle just won't behave today.

Marc Nash (sulci) | 750 comments I have a new sci-fi comedy romance novel published to kindle this week. Called Time After Time Time After Time by Marc NashI would love anyone who is interested in sci-fi to review it. I can supply either a version in Mobi or a PDF as I'm afraid the book doesn't exist in print.

For a taster, here is the book's trailer:

Jamie Marchant (JamieMarchant) | 57 comments I'm giving away ebooks to anyone who will do a honest review of my sword and sorcery fantasy novel. I'm even willing to review your book in exchange.

The Goddess's Choice

The crown princess Samantha fears she’s mad; no one but she sees colors glowing around people. The peasant Robrek Angusstamm believes he’s a demon; animals speak to him, and his healing powers far outstrip those of his village’s priests. Despite their fears, their combined powers make them the goddess’s choice to rule the kingdom of Korthlundia.

In my sword and sorcery novel, The Goddess’s Choice, Samantha’s ability enables her to discern a person’s character through their multi-colored aura, and Robrek’s makes him the strongest healer the kingdom has seen in centuries. But their gifts also endanger their lives. Royals scheme to usurp the throne by marrying or killing Samantha, and priests plot to burn Robrek at the stake. Robrek escapes the priests only to be captured by Samantha’s arch-enemy, Duke Argblutal; Argblutal intends to force the princess to marry him by exploiting Robrek’s powers. To save their own lives and stop the realm from sinking into civil war, Robrek and Samantha must consolidate their powers and unite the people behind them.

The Goddess’s Choice is based on a Norwegian fairy tale, “The Princess and the Glass Hill.” Though my favorite fairy tale as a child, it disturbed me that the female character has no name and no role other than being handed off as a prize. My novel remakes the crown princess of Korthlundia into a strong heroine who is every bit as likely to be the rescuer as the one rescued.

D.E.M. Emrys (D_E_M_Emrys) | 17 comments From Man to Man by D.E.M. Emrys

I'm David (pen name D. E. M. Emrys) but you can all call me D. I thought I'd just drop in to tell you all about my new fantasy ebook 'From Man to Man'. I'm offering FREE copies to anyone willing to review/rate/shelf it on Goodreads and elsewhere. If you're interested in helping out please send me a direct message on goodreads, or email me on dememrys@hotmail.co.uk

'From Man to Man' can be found it on Amazon, Smashwords, and here on Goodreads.

Here's a quick rundown for 'From Man to Man':

‘I’ve traded my old enemies for just this one…’ The axe thundered home. ‘I miss the old ones.’

Every man has a past, none more so than Draven Reinhardt. Abandoning his old life to settle down as a villager, he struggles to fit in, let alone hold down a job. When opportunity offers the much needed coin, Draven is torn between a promise and a purpose.

But, what’s one last job if you’ve already got blood on your hands?

‘From Man to Man’ is the story of how one man can change – or not – for the best. Prequel to the upcoming novel ‘It Began With Ashes’, the short (6400 words) introduces the reader to a world of suspense, intrigue, and action.

BONUS MATERIAL:
Exclusive preview chapter from ‘It Began With Ashes’.
