Re: 2015 free/cheap Kindle/e-book deals

Most Kindle books by Daniel H. Wieczorek will be free from May 20 - May 22, 2015. Mostly outdoor photo books, but also a couple of books of word games, calendars and so on. Just go to Amazon, copy & paste the name and do a search.

Crap, I was coming here to post a $15 deal on the complete Harry Potter series, but I just checked and it's over. Oh well, bump anyway. New First freebie selections are up of course.

I bought that actually. I questioned if it was legit at first... Who sold it? Pottermore or something? Is that Rowling's company?

Yeah, I was a little worried at first too, but did some googling and it is legit. Pottermore is a company that initially was the only place to buy HP ebooks and other merchandise, but they've gradually been releasing them into the open wild, and Pottermore as a webportal is apparently dying.

Re: Free/cheap Kindle/e-book deals

Tor just started a free book of the month deal a couple months ago.
This month it's Gardens of the Moon.
The first book in the Malazan series.

Re: Free/cheap Kindle/e-book deals

Hey folks, I just put my first book out--a collection of sci-fi and horror short stories.

The Kindle version will be free for 24 hrs tomorrow (9/2/16):


https://www.amazon.com/Even-Closer-T...sea#nav-subnav

If you get it and like it, a good review really helps!

(And if you think it totally blows, you don't need to write anything, because no one pays attention to those reviews anyways.)

Congrats! So that's where your screen name comes from.....

I'm a bit too cash poor this year to buy it today, but look forward to getting it tomorrow.

Thanks! Free is fine when I'm just trying to get readers and feedback--not planning on quitting the day job just yet.

The whole process of getting it out there was pretty interesting. Many, many hours of work---but surprisingly (at least to me), there were virtually no upfront costs.

I'm clueless as to the promotion/business side, so I'm just learning as I go.

Re: Free/cheap Kindle/e-book deals

^ I visit an ebook-centered forum called MobileRead. I know that self promotion is frowned on in certain threads there, but perhaps not all. But I'll try to read a story early tomorrow and then promote your book in their fairly active bargain sci-fi section.

Greatly appreciated--but if you think it sucks, you have no obligation to promote it.

I don't know much about it either but I see you are listed on Goodreads... I have noticed that some reviewers there will state that they were "given a copy of the book in exchange for a fair review". I'd be inclined to give that a try and get a few more reviews up. I'm more inclined to buy a book from a new author if they have a number of favorable reviews and are priced right. Just sayin'.

Oh, and I downloaded it too. Thanks.
