message 1: by Melanie (new)

Melanie Cusick-Jones (melc-j) If you're looking for interested readers and or reviewers for your books and have free copies or ARCs on offer - please post them in here. If you could follow a basic format like:

Book Name, Cover Image and a brief synopsis; along with the format of copies you are offering readers can get a good idea of what they can get.

For readers in the group accepting books, we just ask that they read and rate/review on Goodreads within a reasonable space of time.

Sound good? Who doesn't like free stuff or happy readers? :)

Michael Cargill Cargill (michaelcargill) | 372 comments I thought I had already spammed my latest book in here. Here goes;

Shades of Grey is a collection of three short stories.

Shades of Grey by Michael Cargill

John is not a very nice man. He works for the government. So who has tied him to a chair and what do they want?

James is a British soldier during WWII. Tom is a young boy with a terrible secret.

Three stories. Three very different people. All of them battling to survive.

Sadie Forsythe | 47 comments Ooh, I love free stuff. Plus I have a book in need of reviews. Thanks for the opportunity Melanie.

The Weeping Empress is an action adventure/fantasy with some YA crossover appeal.

synopsis:
Chiyo Alglaeca was happy in her life. That is, until it was all taken away. Forced into notoriety, stalked by a mysterious cult, hunted by the emperor, and facing betrayal at every turn she clings to the only safety she can find: two enigmatic men and the sharp bringer of death, Salvation. The Weeping Empress explores the devastating effects of loss, the hunt for redemption, and the price of destiny. It questions the true meaning of evil and asks what monster is not also an innocent?

The Weeping Empress by Sadie S. Forsythe

J.D. Hallowell | 22 comments I'm happy to offer a review copy in ePub or Kindle format to anyone who wants to read and review Dragon Fate. PM me, J.D. Hallowell, here on Goodreads and I'll email you a copy.


Dragon Fate by J.D. Hallowell

Dragon Fate is a heroic fantasy adventure in the classic tradition of the genre.

Delno Okonan is a young former soldier eager to put the swords and strife of war behind him, when a chance encounter leaves him inextricably entwined in a tangled web of dragons, magic, and intrigue, as he struggles to find his place among dragons and men, and stave off a plot by renegade dragon riders that threatens all he now holds dear.

Buck Tanner (BuckTanner) | 8 comments Hey! Who wants to read about having sex with vampires...FOR FREE?

Vampire Sex

Vampire Sex (Buck Tanner's FAQs, #1) by Buck Tanner

This book will walk you through every frequently asked question about going on an erotic tour of Transylvania, such as...

-- What if my vampire bites me?
-- Shouldn't this tour be in Forks, Washington?
-- Why can't my vampire get an erection?

This is an ebook, so send me a PM and I'll email you an Amazon gift certificate so you can buy it. It's a pretty sweet arrangement.

Do you have to review? It would be nice, but I won't hold you to it. I just want to make you laugh. I'm a people pleaser.


message 23: by Blakely (new)

Blakely (bchorpenning) | 9 comments I have two books that I would love to give away in digital form:

Frayed (released December 2011) is an adult urban fantasy novella. When a deadly faction begins abducting supernatural teens for excruciating experiments, Fray, a leopard shapeshifter, and a crew of unlikely allies must rescue them before they are dissected alive. Her most shocking discovery: Everyone's human. At least a little...

I am also offering free ARCs of 'Souled Out' (Debuting July 5th 2012), a new adult/16+ ya novel. Ell Clyne is lost living someone else’s life. But reading souls to save the fate of a loved one seemed like a fair trade. At first. The lie has cost Ell her family, her future, her very soul. Now the secret is out and the vampires want answers. This is the story of a girl who isn’t a superhero or a badass, but manages to fight for her place in a cold-blooded world regardless of the pain caused by that empty space where her soul should be.

If anyone is interested in both or one of these titles, please message me on goodreads or email me at blakelychorpenning@yahoo(.)com and I will gladly send you a copy. Thank you!


message 24: by Bella (new)

Bella Street (bellastreet) | 2 comments I have a 'gothic romance' series called Apocalypse Babes and the first is now FREE for Kindle, Nook, and via Smashwords. Also, if you review my book where you bought it from, and let me know, I'll send you the next book free. :)

BLURB: The Z Word, follows Seffy Carter and her longtime friends Gareth, Addison and Lani. The four besties share a past dysfunctional and dark enough to keep them bound together under do-over identities. But like off-brand, velour, rends develop in their relationships from the flesh-eating pressures of ending up in 1980, in a Montana desert, surrounded by zombies wearing dated disco duds.

message 30: by Kelly (last edited Jun 21, 2012 06:38PM) (new)

Kelly | 19 comments I would really love to get some reader feedback on my manuscript before I publish it. I would really like to make sure I am putting my best foot forward before I decide if I want to look into self publishing or not. (regardless I know it will need more editing before being publication ready.)

In a medieval world comprised of three waring kingdoms as different from each other as the families that rule them, Emariya Warren is unique in being a daughter of not one but two of the ruling families. Her mother, murdered while Emariya and her brother watched, came from the seagoing land of Sheas in hopes of bringing peace.

After learning her father has been captured, Emariya makes the desperate decision to follow in her mother's ill-fated footsteps and marry the prince of Thalmas, Torian Ahlen. But when Emariya discovers the secrets of the three families and a ominous prophecy warning the three bloodlines must never be combined, she begins to fear the handsome prince waiting for her may have had a dangerous motive all along.

Cornerstone features a strong supporting cast of companions such as Jessa, Emariya's handmaiden and friend who believes to strongly in right and wrong with no room for anything in between to Garith, the lovable best friend that every girl needs, who loves her unconditionally without any misconception that she could ever be his.

If you would be interested in reading my novel and giving me true and honest feedback, please let me know. I can provide it in kindle format as well as epub, word or pdf. Please let me know which it is you would prefer.

Also, if it is going to be ranked like 50th on your to be read list, maybe this project isn't for you.

Additional disclosure - While Cornerstone is technically a YA fantasy it does have some mild language at times as well as an implied sexual encounter. It comes in at about 87k words.

Brent McCay (bmac3130) | 13 comments I am looking for people to read my published (ebook only) book. "Confessions of a Heretic: How a Right Wing, Fundamentalist, Conservative Pastor Became a Leftist, Liberal Heathen"

I will e-mail twenty Microsoft Word or PDF copies of the book to interested people.

Here is the link to my book on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Her...

If you do read the book and write a positive review, let me know. I will enter your name into a drawing for a signed loose-leaf copy of the original manuscript.

Also if my book makes it into the top 5,000 or above in Kindle sales I will donate ten percent of all profits to whichever charity my twitter followers choose.

message 36: by Miles (new)

Miles Gentry (miles_gentry) | 12 comments Hi All,

My name is Miles Gentry and my new release Spontaneous Combustion: Enlightenment and the Cosmic Crucible is in the religion/spirituality genre. More specifically, the book explores religious myth, the Christian mysteries, metaphysics, gnosticism, alchemy, and even Bible prophecy. If you are interested in these topics, you will certainly find this an interesting (and perhaps enlightening) read.

I am currently seeking reviews, and would be happy to give free copies (PDF or Mobi.) to those interested.

Elizabeth | 10 comments Hi, I am looking for reviews for my novel Other Systems published by 48fourteen.

It's hard science fiction set in the far future about a failing human colony on the planet Kipos, time dilation, a space explorer who wants grandkids and a young woman who is going to lose everything to travel 94 light years away from home.
This book was written for adults, though since Abby-the young woman I just referred to above-is 17-19 in the book there is some YA cross over for older teens.

Other Systems by Elizabeth Guizzetti

I have three ebook formats, pdf, epub, and mobi. Please shoot me a direct message and I will send you the book.

Thanks, Elizabeth
