Saturday afternoon avalanche of free offers

Another day, another avalanche of free offers from Amazon. Courtesy Happy Reader Joyce’s curation we get a handy list of offers -

  1. Griffin’s Daughter (The Griffin’s Daughter Series) by Leslie Ann Moore. Price: $0. Genre: Historical Fantasy, Family Saga, Neither Human nor Elven. Rated 4.5 stars on 18 reviews. It’s such a relief to see a cover where the person isn’t shirtless or showing cleavage. It also goes well with the title that it’s showing what seems like a young girl or a young woman. The monastery frames things well and the mountain and clouds add a nice touch. There’s also a Young Adult Version of the book.
  2. Manual for Living: Reality by Seth David Chernoff. Price: $0. Genre: A Manual for Living, Practical Wisdom, Meaning of Life. 
  3. What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex by Shed Simove and Sheridan Simove. Price: $0. Genre: 200 things, An Alleged Expert on Men, Apparently Men Think About Things Other Than Sex. Rated 4 stars on 18 reviews.

  2. Wow, no thanks. There’s a reason why this crap is free.

  3. Is anyone else getting a bit weary with all the “Trilogy: part 1″, “Son of Trilogy” and “Book One of the Trilogy Series” titles hitting you in the face? Yeah, I know that every book blog and agent blog in the universe is saying that “series sell.” But, geez. Every once in a while I wanna read a book just because it’s a good book, on its own, not because i want to get hooked into a series. And, just because you’ve managed to write five books starring the same characters doesn’t automatically give it a good library-keeping seal of approval! :)

    • PS: I’m a writer too, and I have found some fabulous authors in the ‘freebies” and I’m enjoying reading them in my free (ha!) time. Still, I have started passing over the “Son of Trilogy” type books. Just too much “in my face.” (I’ve gotten bitten with the whole “cliffhanger” marketing ploy once too often). JMO

    • I am. It’s painful to have people try to give away Book 1 in a series. It’s cool the first few times (like in 2009 when Robin Hobb and Naomi Novik did it) but then it just becomes annoying.
