FREE Mystery/Thriller Novels for April/May 2009
« Reply #75 on: April 25, 2009, 07:31:50 am »
The recession is still upon us, I lost my job, but I'm going to offer my novels for FREE again for the rest of April and all of May.

Just go to my homepage on Smashwords at http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/aspolicastro and click on the book titles on the bottom to download. I would really appreciate if you could write a review and post it on either Smashwords or Amazon or both. Thanks.  Grin

If you have time, check out my press release on Dark End of the Spectrum and how my book is a fictionalized version of the Conficker Worm threats. I completed the book two years ago, and now it seems to be coming true with the Conficker Worm and its botnets. The links are:

    Hallo all, me again, of the occasional legal free Kindle ebook creating from time to time.

    This month it's Thoughtcrime Experiments, a Creative Commons 3.0 Attribute-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licensed anthology of science fiction and fantasy stories. 

    You can see all my Kindle downloads here.  (These days I'm branching out into other formats as well.)

    Oh, and you're the one who puts together the ebook formats of Shadow Unit, too.  Thanks for those, I'm not sure I would have ever heard of that writing effort if you hadn't posted about your ebook versions of them last month, and I really enjoyed reading both Season 1 and the first episode of Season 2. I was impatiently waiting on episode 2 while you were on vacation earlier this month. :D  Have it now, but haven't read it yet.

    Thanks for taking the time to put PDF/HTML freebies into Kindle-friendly format for the rest of us!

    SWEET!  Thanks for spotting this one--I had it recommended to me after buying & reading all the Septimus Heap books, but the price tag was keeping this series on the wish list.  Great find!

      Awesome book. I paid full Kindle price for this and the 2nd one (and don't feel jipped) and can't wait for the 3rd to come out later this month.  Enjoy!~

    This one (the alchemyst) is also available as a PDF from Amazon (and others) and for Sony, for those of you who want to share it with kids or family that don't have a Kindle. I have links to both on my blog (or the are easy enough to google up).

    Down River is also free from St. Martin's Press.

    http://booksontheknob.blogspot.com/2009/04/free-ebook-down-river-by-john-hart.html

    Both look pretty decent for PDF's and should convert well.

    Saw this on Finding Free Ebook blogspot:
    Fall Love by Anne Whitehouse
    Fall Love tells the intertwined stories of four twenties-something artists and professionals adrift in the bad old pre-AIDS New York of 1980. From a summer of love through an autumn of deceit and regret, we follow the lives of Althea, Jeanne, Paul, and Bryce from self-sacrifice to self-knowledge.

    Bone Machines By: John Dodds
    They suffer for his art. When a number of women are reported missing in Glasgow, the spectre of a previous spate of unsolved disappearances in the city rears its head. Journalist Ray Bissett is drawn into the case when his daughter joins the ranks of the missing. And ambitious police detective Tom Kendrick wont let Ray forget a terrible incident form his past which resulted in the death of a young boy. Damaged lives and dark secrets The streets of Glasgow haunted by the ghosts of the missing and an artist driven by a deadly inspiration
