Easter Kindle Freebies

8 Apr

Happy Easter everyone!  What a better way to spend your Easter than reading a good book, eh?  I know that I’ll be doing so when not at the family dinner later.  What will you be reading today?  Here’s my book read for today:

(Note:  This is not a freebie today)

Like a naughty Easter version of The Nightmare Before Christmas mixed with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. . .

Don’t let her habit of constantly wearing bunny ears fool you. Charlee hates Easter. And she has good reason to. So, on the day before her 18th birthday, she wasn’t expecting to meet the Easter Bunny, a person-sized gummi egg, and a large toad. But that’s what happens when she and two other teenagers are transported to Easter Land. Charlee ponders the teenage girl made out of gummi with huge boobs, and the teenage boy in a wheelchair with an overdeveloped upper body.

A black-clad princess informs them that they must compete to decide which of the three creatures will be the future egg deliverer. But a mysterious man tied to a dark holiday known as SinEaster is also aware of the teens’ arrival.

Some say that in the days of prophesy, SinEaster will destroy Easter. Will Easter go on as usual, or will it be cancelled this year?

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

For those of you looking for a new book today, here are some freebies that I snagged up.  I’ll highlight a couple at the top that will be my top reads of the bunch, but several of these look really good!  🙂

(Note:  This is not the cover used for the Kindle edition)

The few souls still left in the dying mining town call it Milestone, but a better name might be Purgatory, for it is nothing less than a prison for those who have done wrong. They are the damned, condemned to murder other sinners for a chance to escape, though escape never comes.

For the patrons of Eddie’s bar, who live in the shadows of their own tragic pasts, tonight will be different.

Tonight, there will come one shot at redemption for those brave enough to take it.

Featuring an incredible cast of characters united by desperation, this the novella that inspired the critically acclaimed novel CURRENCY OF SOULS.

“It was when Joe come back from the dead our troubles begun, I reckon. Things was none too cheery ’fore then, of course, what with us thinking him drownded, Tom and me, but… well, it’d’ve been better all round if he’d just stayed dead. Them was the fun times, I’ll allow, when I think what come later…”

Two boys hide in a graveyard at midnight so that when devils come to claim the soul of a man buried the previous day they can fling a dead cat at them, curing one of the boys of his warts. Such, strange to recall, was the incident that set in train the central narrative of Mark Twain’s classic novels of childhood in the West of the 1840s, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

“The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves,” explained Twain in his preface to Tom Sawyer. But what if all those superstitions were true?

Huck takes the principal characters of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and sets their lives in motion once more – this time in an enchanted Missouri where being barked at by a stray dog or serenaded by a whippoorwill really is a sure sign that you will die, where hairballs from ox stomachs are powerful amulets that foretell the future, where touching a snakeskin or looking at the moon over your left shoulder will bring down bad luck, and where every wind that stirs the trees and mist that clouds the Mississippi is thick with the voices of ghosts.

A nighttime trip down the river ends in disaster for Huck and Tom when their raft overturns and their best friend, Joe Harper, is swept away to certain death. Stranded on Jackson’s Island, a series of mishaps enforces their stay until they learn the terrible truth: that Lady Miz, the spirit of the river, feels cheated and has sent Joe back to fetch his friends – any way he can.

But as if a ghostly Joe Harper wasn’t enough to contend with, another Joe is back in town – Injun Joe. If this bloodthirsty bandit discovers that Huck and Tom know his secrets a vengeful Mississippi could become the least of their worries.

Many a twist, turn and torment must be overcome before Huck and Tom confront their demonic antagonists and fight to save their lives – and their souls.
