Post your info about free books here. For the April 2009 free book thread, see here:

http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,6261.msg151801.html#msg151801

(Authors : As part of our restructuring, this thread is now only for members to post their Free book finds, no self-promotion. If your book is free for a limited run (or longer ;)), you're welcome to start a separate thread in the Book Corner and bump it occasionally (no more than once a week, please) to promote your book, to post news and to talk to your fans! Thanks!)

If you like listening to Audio Books on your Kindle (or other audio device), here are some free books from Audible. You don't have to be a member (just have a registered account) for some of them - but I'm not certain about all of them.

A recycling book:

Okay, I think that's enough to get you started. :)

Edited to add: I also meant to add that you can get a free 14-day trial (or 30-day trial if you find an ad that still offers it) and get a free book credit. Just cancel before the expiration if you no longer want it and you won't be charged.

Woohoo! I wondered if maybe they had listed it wrong initially and it was supposed to be the Orbit $1.00 book for May, being as it's an Orbit book -- so I snagged it at $0.00 while it was at that price.  Looks like I was right....

I managed to get it while it was free, as well. Just goes to show you how fast some prices change.

I got Once Bitten free as well.  I would have downloaded it for a $1 anyway, but free is better!

Here's a link to Down River by John Hart. It's in PDF format, but it turns out nicely after conversion.

*Edited to add*
FYI- I couldn't get the link to work and download properly in Firefox, it kept giving me an error that said the file could not be repaired. But it worked fine when I switched to Internet Explorer. It could just be my computer, but thought I would add that for any Firefox users who might run into the same problem.

Our free stories:

Avatar
Carver has always felt trapped in his brittle, stunted body. So when the opportunity comes to trade his ugly, disabled form for one that's tall, handsome, and strong, he jumps at the chance.

But will he learn that fate is a much harder thing to escape?

=================

Kachina Dawn
Ahote has a secret. He's been away from his people for 20 years in the land of the Bahanas, seeking answers to questions that have plagued him all of his life, the greatest of those being, "What is my destiny?" And it is there that he has found it, and now returns to the Hopi tribe on a mission to lift them from their plight in the post-War world and usher them into the next realm. Only a great man can singlehandedly change the fate of an entire race of people. And thanks to the Bahanas, Ahote is now the greatest.

But was it at the cost of his soul?

The Scent of Freshly Baked Bread
A short, sweet tale of a woman dealing with the issue of mortality, her father's aging, and the ravages of Alzheimer's Disease.

http://www.wheelmanpress.com/Kindle-Books/FreshlyBaked-GBB.prc

=================

Touched
Joseph just wants to fit in. He's a genetically engineered boy living in a backwards town full of luddites who refuse to enter into the world of the 21st century. His mother does everything she can to protect him and make him feel loved, but his high intellect and analytic mind constantly reminds him that there is something different about him, preventing him from finding peace.

But with the help of an old man with a connection to his late father and a precocious young girl, Joseph may finally realize that the very things he's searched for all of his life were right in front of him all along.

Hi Gertie!

Horror is mentioned because some of my stories fall into the Dark Fantasy category. But most of my work is more contemporary fantasy and science fiction, some with only light sci fi/fantasy elements. Three of those freebies are definitely Science Fiction, and The Scent of Freshly Baked Bread is really a contemporary story with a little ghostly fantasy twist thrown in.
