I had a great idea for character development recently. But I haven’t had time to write it up yet, so I’ll just leave this as a hook for my next post 8^).
I just arrived home from my trip late Friday night, and a friend’s wedding took all of my Saturday. Thankfully, today is a holiday in Canada. I’m still recovering and getting caught up on email and other things.
So I’m just going to quickly mention a blog I follow that has pointed me to some great deals: Kindle Review. They publish a daily list of good free e-books and daily deals from Amazon, typically one to eight per genre. These are usually short term promotions, and must be acted on quickly.
Of course, you can always go to Amazon and get the full list of freebies and daily deals. But given the free-for-all of self-publishing, this is kind of like going through an agent’s slush pile. The people at Kindle Review have already done this for you, providing a curated list.
I don’t know how they select from the full list, or how they keep doing it every day. But I’ve gotten some great deals there.
They also have a list of free public domain e-books, where you can find many classics.
Initially I wasn’t selective enough. After all, they’re free, right? Being part Scottish, this really appeals to me. But then I realized I was piling up more books than I’d ever have time to read. So now I’m more careful.
If you like to read e-books, whether on a Kindle or one of the Kindle reader apps, I recommend this blog. Let me know what you think.
