Ever wondered what you cat thinks? Max (the Psychokitty) Thompson may leave you sleeping with one eye open... $1.59 each (it should make me sad, he has a much larger fan base than I ever will  :D )

     

And he's written out the rules for being owned by a cat...complete with paw drawn illustrations... for $1.19



I just got the sample of Max's first book.  Read the entire thing out loud to my husband.  We were laughing so hard he snorted a couple of times.  DH insisted that I had to buy all the books...and I've been trying to be good. ::) 

I once had a cat that I'm positive must have been Max's evil twin separated at birth only she preferred to poop on the shower mat instead out my pillow! ;D

    Hi All,
    I am the author of the Deadly Sports Mysteries series.
    Sudden Death is now priced at only 99 cents.
    Sudden Death, the first book in the series received two very powerful endorsements:

    Pure fun, pure intirigue. The action never stops till a fascinating climax! Clive Cussler

    You like golf, you like murder mysteriesthen Sudden Death is your book! James Patterson

    These endorsements and many more helped Marc Entertainment decide to pick up the TV options for my series.

    To help promote my upcoming novel, Dead Ball (July release) I am holding two contests at my website. Please visit and register to Win a stadium sized ESPN Banner signed by all the anchors & analysts or win a contest to be named in my next novel. Registering is Free & Easy at http://www.balkindbooks.com

    Dead Ball is now available for a limited time before its actual July release date. My publisher posted it for kindle by mistake but will be taking it back down and reposting it on the scheduled date after Book Expo America. You can check the link below for availabilty.

    Although my books are sports themed, many great reviews have come from people who are not athletes nor fans of any sport. I hope youll check out my books and enter my contests.

    Thanks for your support. I'd love to hear your thoughts after reading my novels.
    Michael Balkind

    According to the Ms. Nowak's Myspace page, Almost Human was scheduled to be released in print today. But of course, since this is a Kindle forum, all interested parties should be racing to take advantage of the special trilogy bundle price.

    Regarding Elfhunter, I neglected to mention that amazon has not yet merged the reviews of the paperback with the kindle book yet. I do understand that many of you are not going to purchase a book that hasn't been reviewed, so I'm including here the link to the sales pages of both paperback and kindle book, that way you can read the reviews of this award-winning book as well as download it to your Kindle for 99 CENTS.

    My book, The Song of Songs: A Lover's Poetic Dialogue, is available on Kindle for 99 cents this month.

    Think the Bible is stuffy? You're in for a surprise, and quite a treat. I've written this version as a dialogue, meant to be read out loud together by lovers: where to do so is up to you.

    Solomon's "Song of Songs", which is found in the Old Testament, is a beautiful, sacred, and erotic masterpiece that reverberates on many levels -- from the courtship of the King and his betrothed, to the mystical wedding of Heaven and Earth, to the sweet, sensual pillow talk of all happy lovers.

    As a reviewer wrote, "The Song of Songs is one of the most beautiful pieces of literature in the world. Reading it aloud with a lover will make it clear why this is so."

    I suspect that you wouldn't want your Kindle to read this to you, hmm?

    Hey, is everyone having fun looking for the Easter Eggs?  Hope so!  In the mean time:

    Just wanted to remind everyone--

    We'd like to keep this topic pretty lean and mean, so that people looking for bargains don't have to wade through a lot of posts.  

    If you liked a book, that's great, and it's good to get confirmation that a book is worth downloading, but we don't need several "Loved this book" posts.  If you actually would like to discuss the book, please start a new thread about the book.  Any posts after the first "this was a good read" will have to be pruned to keep the thread manageable.

    Also, thanks to the authors for being members of KBoards and posting about your books.  Thanks to readers are probably better placed as a general thank you in the separate thread about your book (you do have one, don't you?), or if you want to thank individual members, the PM makes a great thank you note.  You can just click on the little square box under the member's name to send them a message!

    Thanks to everyone for the great posts and for keeping this thread and the Free Books thread the useful threads they are!

    Now, off to do some pruning....

    Here's the link....
    $3.95

    It's up to $4.39, apparently the price drop was due to a March 31st reprinting of the MM Paperback, which also sells for $4.39.  I picked it up anyway, I'll get there eventually....

    When asked by Amanda Young in a recent interview which of my novels was THE favorite, I answered without hesitation:

    Turning Idolater by Edward C. Patterson
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001FWZ92Q (Kindle) $3.99

    Now reduced for a limited time to $ .99 (NINETY-NINE CENTS)
    Description:
    "Philip Flaxen, who strips past his jockstrap on the Internet for manluv.com, acquires a rare gift - a book that transforms his life. With it, he sparks with a famous author, whittles away at a new craft, swims with an odd circle of new acquaintances and is swept up in mayhem. Philip leaves the world of the Porn Nazi and enters the realm of crisp possibilities - great expectations and dark secrets that unravel over deep waters. Follow this whodunit as Philip Flaxen turns idolater and never looks back - a tale of Internet strippers, back street murders, Provincetown glitz, New York City nightlife and a love story for the ages. If you liked "No Irish Need Apply" and loved "Bobby's Trace," you will absolutely adore "Turning Idolater." Life is filled with serendipity, pleasurable and bracing, but on the fringes and in the heart, life can be a very bloody business."

    Here's what readers say about it:


    "TURNING IDOLATER by Edward C. Patterson is a bountiful catch. The author can turn a phrase and is ever ready to give the reader those perfect details that put one right in the scene."

    "Wonderful . . . Patterson shows yet again what a talented writer he is. Each character is beautifully sketched, the murder mystery stays a mystery right until the end. No way you can predict the outcome of this story, let me tell you ! To be honest, I did shed a tear or two at the end.. Patterson's books are so full of emotions it just grabs me every time."

    "This book was full of emotional surprises throughout it's pages. There were times I laughed out loud and times when I needed to have the kleenex handy. "

    "Patterson has become an author I look for. Whenever I see he has a new book out, I'm in line to buy it. I'm not gay, but I like people, and his characters are likeable, full of spirit, going places and when they decide to go do something. . .I won't be left behind! "

    ==========================================================
    And you wonder why it's my favorite.

    Here's one I don't think I've seen posted before.  I have not read this, but it sounds interesting and has good reviews on Amazon.

    The Second Ship, by Richard Phillips -- Currently just $0.99, but a mention on an Amazon SciFi board by the author says that's just until the print version comes out on May 1.

    Product Description
    Top-Secret Los Alamos, New Mexico. In 1945 its scientists unlocked the secrets of the atomic bomb. Now they've cracked the very lock on hell itself. Once again the quiet scientific community spawned by the Manhattan Project comes face to face with a technological breakthrough for which the world is completely unprepared. Now, as a special team of operatives struggles to stop the project codenamed Rho while containment is still possible, what it means to be human is about to change -- forever. In this heart pounding new series, acclaimed author Richard Phillips gives us a terrifying glimpse into what lies just around the future's corner.




    A sequel is also available, currently not exactly a bargain at $6.99 but posted here for convenience --

    Painting the Roses Red, a paranormal romance available for Kindle for $2.39.







    Tiara wakes alone to strange psychic powers, bloody visions, and no memory of who she is.

    As she seeks to find herself, she is haunted by a phantom seducer in her mind.  It would seem that he is leading her on a merry adventure to find her identity, but is he the lover whose touch she craves or a madman intent on destroying her mind?

    He sends her pristine white roses but their purity is tainted by the bright red blood upon their petals.



    ps... this is also on the main threads but Theresam said to drop a note here on the bargain book threads... thanks for looking...
