Mingjong Tey | 12 comments Been looking for a thread to promote a free book but can't find it. So, I decided to start this thread about free book promotion on Kindle.

Add your link below if your book is on free promotion so that we, in the community will be able to check it out :) I will start first!

Darren Burton (sherlock77) | 3 comments HUNTED is permanently free on Kindle.

When Ryan's car breaks down late at night in the middle of nowhere, he is picked up by a tow truck driver. Instead of taking him to the nearest town at the late hour, Ted drives Ryan back to his isolated property to spend the night. When morning dawns the plans for Ryan change. Instead of taking him to a mechanic, Ted and his sidekick, Bryce, drive Ryan deeper into the forest where they set him loose and announce that they are going to hunt him down like an animal. Armed with only a hunting knife while the men have guns, a game of cat and mouse and survival ensues. Can Ryan outwit the hunters on their home soil? And will he ever escape the wilderness alive? This is a short story of approximately 14,300 words.

Tommy Jason Charles (TommyJCharles) | 12 comments Hey guys, I've uploaded my latest short story to GoodReads in its entirety, in liu of publishing it to Amazon as part of a set.

I'd love your feedback on it, but be warned: it's quite sad, and a bit graphic. The genre is dystopian speculative fiction.


In a future gone very, very wrong, Stephen Ferguson and his wife Lilith cope with a world infested with rats, an oppressive dictator and non-stop mayhem in very different ways. Stephen, a long-suffering technophobe, resists the one vice available to him. As his wife slips further and further away, Stephen resolves to take matters into his own hands, and reality takes on a new meaning.

We'd love to hear what you think of it. :)

Here's a little about my collection of horror/science fiction anthology.
A collection of stories about things that go bump in the night. Stories about the end of the world, what happens when your wishes come true, and when your emotions become your darkest enemy.

Sterling Gate Books (sterlinggatebooks) | 24 comments My international thriller novel The Ninth Orphan is currently FREE to download on Amazon Kindle. The Kindle edition will remain FREE until midnight Wed June 13 (PST), so be sure to download it asap if you enjoy thrillers.

Meanwhile, the book's Amazon page (above) needs a bit of love, so if anyone can LIKE some of the 4 and 5 star reviews and/or dislike the few negative reviews, that would be greatly appreciated. Not too fussed about tags, it's more likes for the title's positive reviews that I'm seeking.

Thanks and happy reading!

Steven Thompson | 2 comments Brilliant, a work of crime fiction, is available free for the Kindle through July 17th.

Book description:

Follow the adventures of four childhood friends who have grown up to find the futures they envisioned have eluded them. Together, they embark on a bold journey to alter the course of their lives and leave their marks in the annals of criminal history as jewel thieves.

Alex Stevens has returned to Orlando, Florida after serving a tour of duty with the Army in Afghanistan. Working a dead end job, he realizes his prospects for the future are as bleak as the war torn country he has just left.

He devises a plot to change his fate and enlists the help of his three closest friends: Thomas "Griff" Griffin, fellow veteran; Brody Michaels, first mate of a fishing charter and laid back beach bum; and Chris Michaels, Brody's younger brother and ex high school football star.

The four friends orchestrate a daring diamond heist in a bid to escape their mundane lives and take their fortunes and futures by storm. It will require nerve, meticulous planning, and a little luck for them to succeed - and even the smallest mistake could shatter their plans for paradise and send them to prison instead.

Scott Cherney (scherney) | 17 comments Red Asphalt
Free July 19 & 20
the road rage thriller
by Scott Cherney
See that car in your rear-view mirror?
The driver wants to kill you.
Don’t take it personally.
You just happen to be in the way.

The operator of the vehicle in question is a troubled medical courier in a triple threat cage match with his two biggest adversaries-everyday life and himself. His marriage to the woman he believed to be his soul mate is rapidly evaporating before his eyes. The book he’s been working on for over a decade is slipping through his fingers as he struggles to complete it. As these pressures grow, he compensates by conjuring up outrageous road rage scenarios in the multiplex of his mind. As his life, job and dreams simultaneously implode, his wild fantasies begin to literally bleed over into reality. Now with a gun in one hand and a steering wheel in the other, this distant runner-up in the human race feels empowered for the very first time. At least our boy’s finally found a purpose in life.

Hello everyone! Hope all are having a great day! Now is your last chance to get DROP OUT absolutely free! Promotion ends soon.

Leave this life exhausted.

When the Twin Towers fell, Nathan Cruz saved the lives of dozens of strangers but the one life he could not save was that of his pregnant fiancé. Wracked with survivor’s guilt and unresolved goodbyes, Nathan drops out of society where he lives self-sufficiently on a houseboat in Florida. A twist of fate lands him into the home of Miriam Kanter, a young, fiercely independent woman with a shocking secret. Alone together in the midst of a raging hurricane, Nathan discloses the nearly unbearable sorrows of his past and finds strength to piece his shattered life back together. Being with Miriam, he feels the connection he’d been missing, stirring up feelings buried long ago. But will Miriam’s own life cut short and plunge Nathan back into his world of reclusive isolation?

Now’s your last chance to read DROP OUT for free! Promotion ends midnight tonight! Read a book that may change your life. Thanks.

The room was sparse and dimly lit with flickering strawberry-scented candles. Power was out. It had been nearly a decade since Nathan had stood inside someone’s home; since that tragic day when he lost everything that ever mattered to him. Outside, a hurricane sounded like it was beating palm trees against the earth. Nathan didn’t know the woman who’d rescued him from the throes of the deadly storm, but he would soon enough. Her name is Miriam and she is about to drastically change everything he ever thought about the meaning of life and what lies beyond. Nathan will discover that the strength of love can piece his shattered world back together and heal wounds that cut deep into his soul. But he never figured the perils he and Miriam were about to face by knowing the most horrible knowledge that one can know.

DROP OUT is a beautiful tapestry of life, love, and acceptance that is moving, romantic, and real.

I call it an 'alternate' fantasy since it contains no elves, vampires, magic swords, etc. The heroes are pacifists who must deal with particularly brutal and powerful villains. It's a complex tale with many characters and multiple plot lines, but I promise that everything comes together and is resolved by the end.
