Some Weekend Kindle Freebies

12 Feb

Just wanted to do another quick posts of some Kindle freebies that popped up this weekend.  I’m assuming that must of these will cease being free after today, but I could be wrong so grab ’em while you can.  🙂

Note:  Clicking the images will take you to the books.

A total of 29 stories originally published in professional magazines and anthologies such as Writers of the Future, The Third Alternative, Cemetery Dance, Crimewave, and more.

Look for the other Kindle box sets in the series, ODD STACKS and BAD STACKS, to complete your Nicholson story collection!

A collection of horror stories, featuring vampires, zombies, monsters, serial killers, and other creepy creatures of the night. Edited by introduced by bestselling author Scott Nicholson (The Red Church, Speed Dating with the Dead, Liquid Fear).

Stories by Joseph Nassise, Simon Wood, Maria Alexander, Nate Kenyon, Kealan Patrick Burke, Lisa Morton, Jeremy C. Shipp, and Joe McKinney.

(Note: Many of you know that I love me some Lisa Morton novels, so be sure to check this freebie story of hers out!!!)

Some Body’s At The Door is a collection of 14 tales to chill the soul and to haunt the mind.

Duncan Kennedy thinks he is alone in his hotel room. But who is knocking at the door?

A woman wants to win… at any cost.

A little girl refuses to grow up, and a little boy isn’t allowed to.

Paul Colenrook believes a monster lurks in the plughole. Maybe he’s right.

He probably is.

Deep within the Manistee National Forest, in the weeks leading up to Halloween, the secluded logging village of Walkerville, Michigan is thrust into a nightmare as locals start disappearing, only to have their bodies, or body parts, found; naked, pale, and with deep patches of flesh seemingly ripped out where there once were tattoos. The local sheriff and deputies must enlist the help of the Grand Rapids Homicide Department. Together, they desperately try to work on the bizarre cases in their own distinctive ways, to find the person or persons responsible for the grisly murders before other unfortunate villagers suffer the same fate.

It has been said that women are the “gentle” sex. Apparently, not all of them got the message. Within the pages of this anthology are a dozen zombie tales by women who will help you discover why they say something else about the ladies: Hell Hath No Fury…

Wicked Winter Read-a-thon – Feb. 3 – 5

3 Feb

Saw where my friend Shaunesay was doing yet ANOTHER Read-a-thon this weekend.  I swear that girl finds one for almost every weekend.  LOL!  At any rate, I decided to try to give it a go.  I’m sure I won’t be devoting all weekend to it, but I will post when I can and read what I can around doing other things that are going on this weekend.

To start things off, I was currently in the middle of two books when this day had started:  Peter Straub’s GHOST STORY  (at the halfway mark) and an anthology edited by Jack Burton titled STEAMY SCREAMS (about 1/3 of the way through).

Today I ended up starting another book however, A HOLLOW CUBE IS A LONELY SPACE by Jack Burton.  I also read a short children’s picture book by Scott Nicholson called IDA CLAIRE and posted a review on Amazon.  Please note that if you go today you an check this Kindle book out for FREE!!!  I’ll paste it here as well:

“Fabulous kid’s picture book by mystery/horror author Scott Nicholson. This story, however, is not a scary tale, but rather a cute poetic story about a father and daughter. The rhymes within this book are both clever and cute and show the love the father has for his daughter Ida. Both the poetic rhythm of this short tale and the colorful artwork by Lee Davis will have kids wanting their parents to read this book over and over again!”

I chose to read & review IDA CLAIRE as part of Scott Nicholson’s amazing Kindle Fire giveaway he has going on.  I had been wanting to read something of his for a while now anyway, so that gave me an excuse.  Of course, I still want to read something of more note by him.  This was just a cute little kid’s tale and I have a feeling his horror books are going to be amazing.  Maybe I’ll get into some of his other shorter fiction this weekend as well!

I doubt that I’ll get to finish any of these books today, but I’ve obviously got a dent going in them all now and hope to at least knock out the two short story collections this weekend, make more progress in GHOST STORY, and possibly read some other stuff as well.

I’ll post more as I can.

Thanks to the person(s) running this Read-a-thon for putting it together and thanks to Shaunesay for pimping it so that I could find another thing to keep my already busy life busy this weekend.  🙂
