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.

Kindle Freebies – 3/25/12

25 Mar

Sorry I haven’t posted any freebies the last couple of days, but I don’t always have time to create these blog posts as it takes a bit of time to get all the links and such together.  This should cover everything that I personally thought looked like good freebies over the course of the weekend however.  As always, click the cover art and/or book title to get to the book.  Also, prices can change at any time, I have no control over that.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

Since I have previously read both of the following books for review in the past, I’m posting them here at the top as highlights with my personal review of the books.  Both of these are amazing reads, so don’t miss out on them while they are free!

Love crime?  Love noir?  Love bizarro?  Love comedy?  If you said yes to any of these questions, then Squid Pulp Blues is for you!  The book is made up of three novellas and has been described as squishy-noir, and contains all of the genres I just listed.

The first novella, The Haberdasher, is about bad drugs, missing feet, and other weird things that Red Henry Hooper is up against after obtaining parole.  The Longheads is the second novella and has probably one of the most interesting, yet disturbing characters I’ve come across in a bizarro title to date… Peachy, a diaper-wearing gangster.  I’ll leave it to your imagination about exactly WHY Peachy wears a diaper, as it’s best to find out for yourself.  Peachy is actually not the main focus of this story, however.  The story centers on a group of veterans called the Longheads who are tracking down other characters who end up having a run-in with Peachy.  The final novella in this collection is titled The Apocalypse Donkey.  This was my favorite of the three stories, though they are all extremely good.  The Apocalypse Donkey is about Simon, the artist of a popular comic book, who is on his way to an autograph session when someone hands him a package.  Unfortunately, it’s a case of mistaken identity and the package isn’t really for him.  Once this is discovered by the other party, the chase is on!

All three novellas in Squid Pulp Blues are loosely connected, making for an even more interesting read.  Characterization is one of the strongest points of Squid Pulp Blues, as is the case for all of Krall’s books.  Each story contains several characters and each and every one of them has special attributes/features that are unique to them.  I keep thinking that Krall will run out of ideas for new and interesting characters, but he hasn’t disappointed yet.    Randomly gross, most often hilarious, and almost always full of squid references, this is one of Jordan Krall’s finest works.  I would recommend this to anyone as there is something in it for everyone.  Highly recommended!

Contains:  Adult Language, Adult Situations

Review also posted at MonsterLibrarian.

YOU.  Yes, “you”… are a poor soul in the hospital on your last legs.  And as it is, you’ve “given birth” to one of the most horrible “people” ever possible…

MORBID.  Born from “your” rectum, Morbid dispatches many other patients in the hospital in extremely horrendous and painful ways.  However, the main suspect of these murders isn’t Morbid, but instead…

WESTPHAL.  Living with his ghost step-dad, Sammy, and his pet aborted fetus, Chip, Westphal works as a night shift nurse, getting stuck with all of the worst patients.  All those that no one else wants to fool with.  Just to get through the day, Westphal has to dope himself up with the strongest narcotics possible and that doesn’t always help make things easier.

These three characters, as well as a host of other interesting “people” make up Steven Rage’s You Morbid Westphal. Both the characters and story format are unique- Rage has created a one-of-a-kind voice with this novella, which has enough story to fill a full-length book.  A large chunk of the story follows Westphal day-to-day as he suffers through many horrendous tasks at work, in his dreams, and even just trying to obtain more drugs along the way.

As soon as I read the final chapters of this book I was ready to re-read it.  I ended up waiting a few months before doing just that, but after a second read, I would be more than happy to do so yet again… and again… and again…  You Morbid Westphal is one of those novellas that never get tiresome, as you pick up something different with each read through.  You Morbid Westphal is not for the faint of heart, as it is full of numerous crude scenes that Rage describes in graphic detail.  For many seasoned horror/bizarro readers, this will be a plus, but for those that can’t handle things over the top, beware!  Highly recommended!

Contains:  Adult language, Adult Situations, Sex, Rape, Violence, Gore, Heavy Drug Use

HORROR & THRILLERS

A janitor, a former junkie, a cab driver, a waitress, a high school senior. Strangers in life, they each receive a blue card in the mail. Now they are connected in death by blue cards found on their bodies. The enigmatic letters on the cards mean something to the killer, something Homicide Detective Jayson Weis has to decipher before he can rid the city of this madman. Confronted with the bodies of the present, haunted by the bodies of the past, Weis knows there will be more bodies in his future unless he can stop the Card Killer. When the few witnesses can’t agree about the killer, not even the race and sex, Weis begins to dread the possibility of a second killer. His relationship with long time girlfriend Lois Fremont is deteriorating. The pressure from City Hall mounts. His own uncertainty about his future dulls the edge of his investigation. Help comes from an unexpected direction, a paraplegic teenager who has also received one of the cards.

A personal loss throws medium Tess Schafer’s beliefs into question and severs her communications with “the other side”. Unable to move on with her life, she takes a healing vacation to a haunted resort on the coast of Maine. Her arrival triggers a spike in paranormal activity and the return of her spiritual connection.

As the spirits of two young lovers reach out to her, Tess soon finds herself in the middle of much more than a tragic love story. Why are they afraid and why are they warning her away? Personal doubts, skeptics, a growing sense of menace and a distracting attraction to another guest will not stop her from uncovering the resort’s secrets.

This omnibus contains the novels WHERE DARKNESS DWELLS and THE NIGHTMARE WITHIN. A monster of a volume, this single ebook is over 195k words (or 700+ pages if in print).

WHERE DARKNESS DWELLS
Summer, 1934. Two boys, searching for a local legend, stumble upon the Underground, a network of uncharted caverns. Time holds no sway there; people no longer age and their wounds heal as if by magic. By morning, one boy is murdered, while the other never returns.
Below a town ravaged by the Great Depression, an immortal society thrives, built on the backs of slavery and pervasive immorality.

THE NIGHTMARE WITHIN
Maury can pull dreams into the waking world, giving them corporeal form. From a boy named Kevin, he removes a nightmare dubbed Mr. Freakshow. Mr. Freakshow knows the rules: a dream becomes immortal by killing its dreamer. When the nightmare escapes his confinement, he has but one goal.

Will Kevin survive his nightmare?

PARANORMAL ROMANCE/EROTICA

Meet Vivian. She’s a 580-year-old vampire who exudes sex, has a talent for drama, and is passionate about two things: her human husband, Rafe, and their resort for the undead. Her ability to project physical illusions has created the perfect vacation spot — a dark, isolated Alaskan hideaway where visitors can have their wildest fantasies come true.

Vivian knows the best performance requires perfect timing, but the powerful vamp is put to the test when she discovers a corpse in a locked guestroom minutes before the next arrivals. Always cool-headed, Rafe hides the body, convinced he and Vivian can find the culprit without disturbing their guests.

Juggling the increasingly outrageous demands of their customers while tracking a killer isn’t easy. Will their poking and prodding give them the answers they need, or will it uncover secrets Vivian would kill to protect?

Warning: This book contains very explicit sex scenes, intended for mature readers over 18 only.

Kindle Freebies – 3/22/12 – Part 2

22 Mar

I typically won’t be doing a double posting every day of freebies, and some days I may not get around to posting at all, but I just stumbled upon several more free horror books that I know some of my followers will enjoy (especially you zombie fans out there).  So… without further ado, I bring you some extra horror picks!

A husband hell-bent on revenge hunts a Wereshark…A Russian mail order bride with a fishy secret…Crabs with a collective consciousness…A vampire who transforms into a Candiru…Zombie piranha…Bait that will have you crawling out of your skin and more. Drawing on horror, humor with a helping of dark fantasy and a touch of deviance, these 19 contemporary stories pay homage to the monsters that lurk in the murky waters of our imaginations. If you thought it was safe to go back in the water…Think Again!

An unspeakable evil is stalking the territory. Civil War veteran and bounty hunter Tyler Cabe, who is tracking a merciless murderer, must find a way to battle something beyond the imagination of living man.

One Hundred and Fifty Million Zombies. Sixty Million Dogs. All of them hungry for warm human flesh. The dead have risen, killing anyone they find. The living know what’s caused it-a vicious contagion. But too late to stop it. For now, what remains of society are busy shutting down nuclear reactors and securing chemical plants to prevent runaway reactions in both. There’s little time for anything else. Failed comic book artist Rick Nuttman and his family have joined thousands of other desperate people in trying to find a haven from the madness.

Zombie Zoology an Unnatural History: Severed Press has assembled a truly original anthology of never before published stories of living dead beasts. Inside you will find tales of prehistoric creatures rising from the Bog, a survivalist taking on a troop of rotting baboons, a NASA experiment going Ape, A hunter going a Moose too far and many more undead creatures from Hell. The crawling, buzzing, flying abominations of mother nature have risen and they are hungry.

Changing the layout of these posts. Will try to group by genre, though some cross-over more than one genre. Also, I’m only going to post descriptions of a few in each genre based on either covers I like or books that just really sound outstanding to me. 🙂


HORROR FREEBIES

Thomas Wright awakens to discover that his family has vanished. None of their possessions are missing. The clothes that they slept in are still in their beds. All too soon it becomes apparent that nearly everyone in town has disappeared, that only he and a few select others remain

Then the sky starts to rain blood.

A small band of survivors is on the run during the zombie apocalypse. Led by a mysterious man with an arsenal of deadly military weapons, they must work together to stay alive. In a desperate attempt to locate other survivors, they find sanctuary in a lone farmhouse, only to discover the surrounding woods hold more dangers than just bloodthirsty undead. Featuring Sasquatch, roving rotters, and even more surprises, Last Stand in a Dead Land, is an explosion of cross genre action that will leave you wanting more.

On the day her father is buried, Cinderella’s stepmother forces her to wait upon her ugly stepsisters as they prepare for a frivolous ball.

Former jailbird Jim Clayton never was much good at controlling his anger, nor minding his own business. So when he winds up in the tiny mountain town of Billings, Georgia, and witnesses a man attacking a teenage girl named Darlene, he can’t help but step in. Unfortunately for Jim, the man is the local Police Chief. And in Billings, the police don’t bother with jail for people who assault officers – no, outsiders such as Jim are taken up into the mountains and hunted like wild animals. Only this time, the hunters aren’t prepared for a tough ex-con whose will to survive is equal to their bloodlust. Nor a stranger with a most unusual possession – a human soul. A soul he’s desperate to sell; a curse he’s desperate to be free from. When Darlene buys the soul, unwittingly transferring the curse onto herself, Jim once again steps in to save her, discovering he must face the demons of his past to do so, while fighting to stay alive against the band of savage hunters.

In the WALLS OF THE DEAD, a plan is underfoot, a house is not a house like any other, and whispers from the Walls of the Dead are waiting to be unleashed.

A novelette of the supernatural.

Linda Broderick witnessed her parents’ murder when she was six years old. She knew it had something to do with house. Taken away by her aunt, she began to use her psychic powers to read minds to further her quest for revenge. Fifty-four years later she felt ready finally, powerful and knowledgeable enough, to face her greatest fears. She would return to her hometown and use what she knew to defeat the house that lived, the walls that talked, and the evil that had stolen away her parents one long ago November night.

MYSTERIES/THRILLERS

Killville is a fiery hot town with murder at its heart, and Matt Sichman is drawn to it like a sadistic moth. Matt is damaged and greedy, with a haunted past to keep him company- like the mysterious SHE, the woman he left for ‘dead’ in New York City.

In Killville, a crazily hot town where people keep dying in ‘accidental shootings’, Matt Sichman finds a place where he can finally score enough cash to make up for all the bad things he’s done, to make a fresh start. But his past and the memory of HER won’t leave him alone. He’s soon offered the perfect score, but with the cops on his tail and HER still haunting him, events begin to spiral out of control and the bodies start to pile up.

This is a dark noir tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The killer in the night.
He waited in the shadows, a dark and deadly presence. He was no novice at this terrible trade–he had struck before and he would strike again. And with each new killing he became less human…and more vicious.
He stood patiently, a wire garrote in his strong hands, ready to claim yet another victim. Soon he would have one more to add to his growing list unless they could stop him. But how could they when they didn’t know who he was? What he was? To a terrified city he was known only as the Wireman.

Set in the 1970s, two brothers return from the Vietnam war with blood on their hands. Learning to kill the enemy wasn’t something that would go away when they returned home to Houston, Texas. Could one of them be the serial killer, Wireman? Could the other stop him?

Loosely based on true crimes which occurred in Houston, Texas in 1978-80.

The View from Here focuses on the beauties and hardships of marriage; the betrayals and promises made between husbands and wives; and the grief of one woman haunted by secrets.

Nicole Baxter has always tried to control every element of her life, but that control is slipping away. She has issues. Abandonment issues. Marital issues. Conception issues. And she thinks her house in the hills is haunted. It doesn’t help that her husband Truman spleunks and climbs, making her worry more with each adventure he takes. As the two grow apart, Nicole makes decisions that may ultimately shatter her fragile marriage.

Her life changes on the afternoon she receives a phone call from the harbor. During a scuba dive, Truman disappears. No one — not hisdiving instructor, not the Coast Guard — can find him. Is he still alive? Or is grief making her believe the impossible?

Since FaceBook doesn’t seem to like the way I am posting the freebies on my wall there, I figured it’d be best to just post the links here, though it’s MUCH faster to do it the other way since I have to grab the pictures and stuff to post them all here, but whatever.  I’ve gotta help feed the book addiction of my peeps.  🙂

So, without further ado… here are my top picks of today’s freebies.  As always, the price can change at any time and I have no control over that.  Click cover images to get to each book.

What would you do if, while taking a late night shortcut through the woods, the trees started whispering your name? Would you convince yourself the voices were only your imagination or would you run?

What would you do if your child told you they saw faces in the walls? Would you believe them or put it down to a case of a child’s night terrors?

What would you do if strange termite mounds started to appear in your greenhouse? Would you call the exterminator or wonder if something unnatural was responsible for the weird constructions?

From horror and paranormal author, Marissa Farrar, comes a collection of haunting, horrifying and surprising short stories.

Content Advisory: This collection totals seven short stories, with a word count of approximately 24K. Bonus content of the first three chapters of Marissa Farrar’s latest novel, ‘The Dark Road’, have also been included for your enjoyment.

THE REAL: The award-winning Amazon.com supernatural thriller, #1 “Ghosts” bestseller and 2011 overall top 100 Amazon ebook bestseller!

A SEQUENCE OF SEEMINGLY UNRELATED STRANGE AND TRAGIC EVENTS TRANSFORMS THE ORDINARY LIFE OF JEREMY SPIRES INTO ONE FILLED WITH ADVENTURE, INTRIGUE, AND PERIL.

Who wouldn’t want to become cognizant of secret realms?
When seven hippies burned to death 39 years ago in a tragic fire, a ghost story was spawned. The legend, passed down by students at the local University, centers on Claire Wales, a.k.a. the Hippie Queen. Graduate student Jeremy Spires thinks nothing of the tale until he stops on a deserted road to help a stranded motorist, Grady, who retells the ghost story as if it and the Hippie Queen are real. Despite Grady’s warnings to stay away, Jeremy and his devoted girlfriend, Jinni Malone, plan a camping trip to the very place – Reefers Woods – where the hippies died. After a near-death experience, an ultra-vivid dream and bizarre visions of children roaming about, Jeremy wonders if there could be some extraordinary power manifested in Reefers Woods. Can Jeremy, in his role as a cynical scientist, dare to believe in the supernatural? Can he discern what is real and what is not?

Do you know what it is to burn?
No? Neither did Jeremy, at least not before a girl, a beautiful stranger, kissed him unexpectedly in a bar. In the days that followed, and despite his love for Jinni, Jeremy cannot turn his thoughts away from the provocative encounter. When Jeremy gives in to his forbidden desires and seeks out the mysterious Monika, he is thrust into a shadowy subculture of sex, drugs and rock-and-roll, of which he had been completely unaware. It is Monika who asks the question, and subsequently reveals what it is to burn.

I can’t believe she’s dead!
The intrigue and suspense intensifies after a ritualistic murder at the University draws the attention of the nation. After learning that the victim is someone very close to Jeremy and after finding evidence linking him to the crime scene, the police focus on Jeremy as a suspect, forcing him to search for the real killer and to try and make sense of the many unforeseen twists and turns his life takes.

What is THE REAL?
THE REAL may be described as a murder-mystery, an action-adventure and a supernatural thriller, deftly folded into one. The observant among you might see the novel through an allegorical lens or even as an extended fable. Regardless, this book can be experienced on several levels. It is up to you, the reader, to decide how deeply you wish to delve.

A collection of 5 short ghost/horror stories.

The Haunted Carousel- From chasing the urban legends of Corona to visiting Mr. Pitchord’s creepy house, the seniors from Corona High, 1985 get more than they bargain for when they run across an old carousel on the deceased owner’s property. Amidst a wicked storm, Donovan and his friends find that the ghost of Pitchford is the least of their worries.

Petrified- Surlee’s, Big Sur California, is the place to go to get unusual petrified statuettes. For Ramona and Tom, the beautiful agony depicted on the expressions of the carvings became an all too real horror when they realized Surlee’s secret for success.

Music Box- Sometimes, true love really does last forever.

I Am Ellis Moore- He doesn’t remember the past and he doesn’t understand the future. Ellis only lives for the present, avoiding the hateful witch Zhena who resides in his basement. On October 31st, he’s reminded why he creeps through the hidden corridors of Moore Manor when his father pays him an unexpected visit.

Chameleon- A day in the life of Thaddeus Grey, a man compelled to blend into his surroundings. Literally.

 

Faith’s torn affection between the two angelic brothers, Kort and Seth, is once again tested, and then put aside as an unexpected threat looms. Satan and all of his followers are scrambling to tempt, touch, and invade humanity again; thus, weakening God’s rule and unlocking the chains of…The Irin.

Kort, who is to be of truth and honor, wants to keep Faith in the dark about the ex-archangel hit squad with powers that supersede those of the two angelic brothers in love with her. Seth wants to tell her everything; including the fact that the leader of The Irin, Samyaza, is not only cruel, but takes the virtue of human women to give his angelic powers a boost. And if he can take the virtue of ‘the chosen one,’ he will gain power over all of mankind as well. Well…no more piddly-ass-little-girl crap, Faith’s tired of being the damsel-in-distress, and she’s not about to be any longer. God bestows Faith with some unique weapons against The Irin—useful blessings, for not only does sexuality ooze off Samyaza like rays of light bursting off the sun, his features would buckle any human girl’s knees.

Can she resist Samyaza’s charms? If so…can she escape his cruelness? Because, he will have her ‘power’ one way or another.

Moonlight City lies on the border between this world and the next, so it’s only natural that there should be some extra-ordinary citizens in town. But when that supernatural element turns nasty, it’s time to call in the Moonlight Monsters Detective Agency.

In this action-packed Christmas adventure, half-demon detective Tina Peterson finds herself facing off against a coven of Krampi – chaotic winter demons – who are masquerading as store Santas at Shopping Malls all over Moonlight City. But can she save the city from total bedlam without enlisting the help of smooth-talking British vampire Sam Parker? Even though she has an outstanding warrant for his arrest?

Hells Bells! can be read as a stand alone story or in order as part of the series.

And lastly, as I just couldn’t resist this title/cover (*giggles*)… 

Another short paranormal sex story by Lucy Pire.

Managing to buy her first house at 20 thanks to the money she makes as a well known medium, her first day moving in doesn’t go exactly as she plans.

Erica soon finds out there’s a ghost in her house, not that she really minds. And this one seems to be quite helpful, in more ways then one…

Descriptive, and guaranteed to turn you on.
