Holly Christine | 6 comments Thanks for creating this topic, Tom!

I published The Nine Lives of Clemenza, an inspirational novel, in late March of this year. It's available on Kindle for $1.

If you were able to choose what form of life you would live, what would you become? The Nine Lives of Clemenza explores the realms of spirituality and reincarnation. It introduces the possibility that as complex souls, we choose our lives, thus giving us the ultimate capability of free will. Clemenza starts out as a new soul in heaven, contemplating what form of life she will take to begin her journey. God grants each new soul nine lives, provided they bring back a moral lesson learned. Clemenza is diverse in her choices, exploring every facet of existence from air to the northern lights to a human being. Roles are reversed and souls intertwine during Clemenza’s many lives, as she learns the meaning and importance of pain, grief, loss, love and passion.

The Nine Lives of Clemenza was chosen as Reviewer's Choice for June 2009 by the Midwest Book Review.

Thank you and happy readings!

Karen McQuestion | 5 comments I was so glad to see this topic posted! It gives me a chance to mention my two titles without sounding too obnoxious. :)

I have two books available on Kindle.

Easily Amusedis a romantic comedy. The novel was a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition.

Lies I Told My Children is a collection of humorous essays, many of which were previously published in Newsweek, the Chicago Tribune, the Denver Post and the Christian Science Monitor.

Each is less than two dollars.

Thanks Tom, for starting this topic!

Now if only I could figure out how to post a cover like Kevis did for The Legend of Witch Bane...

Hi Karen,

Just wanted to share with you that if you want to add the cover of your book to your post simply click on the "add book/author" link above the comment window then click on "cover" after you enter your book title. Once you do that your book cover will appear in your post. Hope that helps.

Kevis Hendrickson (kevishendrickson) I have published a ya fantasy book called The Legend of Witch Bane, the first of a multi-epic saga, which is currently available to Amazon Kindle owners for only $0.99. The reason I have priced my book so low is to encourage readers to try it with very little risk to their pocketbooks. Here is the synopsis:

3 desperate children, a young boy and his two sisters embark on a dangerous quest to rescue their kingdom from a malevolent queen. Along the way, they learn that the only weapon powerful enough to defeat the queen's dark and terrible magic is an enchanted sword called Witch Bane. But the origins of the sword are clouded in mystery and has the potential to unleash a great evil into the world.

The dreaded queen will stop at nothing to thwart the children's search for Witch Bane and sends her powerful minions to destroy them. Not the least of her arsenal of weapons is her plot to destroy the children with treachery. It will take all the courage the children can muster to survive the terrors unleashed upon them. But will the children succeed against the powers of the dark queen? You'll have to get your copy of The Legend of Witch Bane to find out!

Editorial Reviews:

“The Legend of Witch Bane is a finely tuned, explosive page-turning fantasy story that will hold any reader's interest to the last page.”—Crystal Reviews

“If you loved Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit, Grimms Tales, even far older tales lost in time then this tale has it all and will have you glued to its pages through every twist and turn.”—R.N. Hadley Book Reviews

(Now available for $0.99!)

K.L. Brady (karlab27) | 7 comments Hello Everyone!

I'm K.L. Brady and I'm offering the Kindle version of my debut novel "The Bum Magnet" at the introductory price of $1.99 until October 31st. If you like humorous women's fiction, this is definitely a book for you!

Real estate agent Charisse Tyson seems to have it all-a great job, a dream car, and a McMansion in high-and-mightyville. Everything in her life is just right...except the Mister. While lamenting the break-up with her most recent "the one" during a holiday meltdown, Charisse realizes she has a type when it comes to men-players, players, and more players. A magazine article motivates her to swear off men and examine the complex roots of her romantic fiascos.

Just five simple steps to turn her life to the stuff of legends, right? Life is never that easy...

Charisse commences her do-it-yourself therapy project and barely cracks open her emotional toolbox when she encounters the monkey wrenches: an irresistible new beau, two persistent ex-flames, and an FBI agent with life-altering secrets threatening to turn her world topsy-turvy.

A tug of war ensues and Charisse is dead center, trying her best to distinguish the Don Juans from the Romeos. As her love life is propelled into unpredictable twists not even she could imagine, will a twenty-seven-year-old secret keep Charisse from finding the right "one"?

Laugh loud and often as Charisse discovers whether her choices in men reflect more than a penchant for good looks, great sex, and bad judgment.

If you'd like to read a preview please check the "Look Inside" on the paperback link.

Shirley | 2 comments The first Luthiel's Song book is a steal on Kindle for .99 cents. I think the second one is pretty inexpensive too, though not under $2.

Loved the story. Thought it was up there with some of my favs -- Dunsany and Ende.

message 17: by Eddie (new)

Eddie (eddiewright) | 4 comments I welcome you all to check out my novella Broken Bulbs. Just $.99 for the Kindle.

Frank Fisher is nothing. He wants to be something. When a mysterious young woman named Bonnie offers assistance by injecting seeds of inspiration directly into his brain, Frank finds himself involved in a twisting mystery full of addiction, desperation and self-discovery. Broken Bulbs, a novella by Eddie Wright, tells the story of the lengths one young man will go in the pursuit of "somethingness."

Praise for Broken Bulbs:
"...a brilliant and stunningly original work, by far the best novel I read in 2008."
- Alternative Reel

"as authentic as they come, experimental without trying to be intentionally obscure, dark without making you doubt humanity, smart and energetic. In short, it’s great writing."
"’s about obsession, self-negation, love, even God (“The Everything”), making Broken Bulbs an entirely unique take on a subject. It’s a science fictional, hard-boiled, poetic vision of drug addiction and hamsters (read it!) A great addition to a genre that has never existed before."
- Self-publishing Review

"...this slim volume is the bastard child of Memento and William S Burroughs, absolutely not for the faint of heart nor for anyone seeking a nice, simple beach read."
- Jason Pettus, The Chicago Center for for Literature and Photography

"An existentialist’s dream, the author has dug in deep and laid bare the raw emotion so candidly that we can actually feel the futility, the desperation, and the humour."

"Philip Dick would be proud."
- POD People

"...the absolute perfect spot-on portrait of the mind of an addict."
"The first chapter alone is a nauseating churn of short choppy staccato sentences, random thoughts and actions, that read like beat poetry at a slam."
"The whole thing is filled with crazy quips and one liners worthy of a high lighter so you can memorize and use them later."
- The Lulu Book Review

"...strangely complex and fascinating."
- Kaye Trout's Book Reviews

My new, online, experimental, serialized project Tyranny of the Muse has just gone live as well. Please check out: and follow for the full experience.

message 29: by Stacy (new)

Stacy Greeting all,

"Anna, Wake Up" recieved 4 out of 5 stars and it is under $2.00 ($1.99)

Below is the review and the link

Anna, Wake Up is a gritty view of domestic violence that rewards the reader with a glimpse of the power needed to escape and move on. There is a spiritual element that provides both mystery and interest. A very good story, well worth reading. I highly recommend it.

I have also published two FREE items on both sites.

Thanks for creating this page!

message 32: by Gregory (new)

Gregory Mose | 3 comments Always happy to have another place to post, and recommendations to buy. I'm pricing the Kindle edition of my novel Stunt Road at 99 cents until the end of February. Here's the pitch: "Pete McFadden has stumbled into success, and he's not going to question it. He's making a fortune as a trendy self-help guru, selling concocted visions of the future and dubious insights into his customer's souls. But when his dodgy business becomes a weapon in the hands of a manipulative cult leader and a ruthless multinational corporation, Pete learns the hard way that when everything is for sale, wishful thinking has the highest price tag of all." Enjoy!

message 42: by Adele (new)

Adele Gibbes (yellowstonegirl) | 2 comments My new conspiracy thriller "Burden of Proof" is currently on sale on Kindle for $1.99. A portion of the sale goes to the American Red Cross for Haiti Relief.

Plot synopsis: In 2001 after seven innocent Americans open their mail, they die from inhaling deadly doses of the thorax toxin. Thorax is a fictional toxin, which causes trouble breathing and cardiac arrest. The U.S. Government instantly labels the attacks as biological warfare from abroad. The Thorax Terror becomes a leading catalyst for U.S. entry into a controversial war in the Middle East.

Flash forward to 2007. Americans have grown tired of the war and distrust the current administration. When a plan is set in motion by nine D.C. powers to cover-up the truth behind thorax, it becomes a race against time to unravel a web of conspiracy that could shake the foundations of American democracy.

The novel is a topical thriller. It is also available in Paperback. Please consider downloading my novel.

Gayle Wigglesworth | 3 comments Washington Weirdos (A Claire Gulliver Mystery) by Gayle Wigglesworth Tea Is For Terror by Gayle Wigglesworth

I write a traditional mystery series about a librarian who owns a travel bookstore called Gulliver’s Travels Bookstore. Claire Gulliver is a very nice person who somehow becomes embroiled in situations that are not nice, in fact some of them can be downright terrifying.

The first half of Claire’s life was uneventful until she learned how sometimes bad things can happen to good people. When she inherits the musty, out-dated bookstore in Bayside, California, she quits her library job, withdraws her retirement funds and opens Gulliver’s. Her mother said she was having a mid-life crisis but maybe Claire thought it was time she lived a little.

The first adventure, TEA IS FOR TERROR, has been available on Kindle for several months at an introductory price of $1.49. Now for a limited time I am offering the second book, WASHINGTON WEIRDOS, at $1.99. Try these books on your Kindle and see if you don’t want to go on all five adventures with Claire.

J.l. Penn (jlpenn) | 2 comments Hi everyone,
My novel Reunion is currently priced at $1.99 as a sale price. It will be going up to $2.99 when Amazon changes their royalty structure if not before. Reunion is featured on the exclusive High Raters page at - the only self-published novel among the bestsellers. Samantha Robey of Chick Lit Plus gave it five stars, saying she "can't say enough praises about this book." There's been lots of 5-star reviews and critical acclaim for Reunion. You can give it a look here among other places.

My new novella The Cinderella Curse is priced at $0.99. It's chick lit with an extra helping of humor. Many readers have been calling it "laugh out loud" funny. You can view it here.

Thanks for reading!
