E-book Freebies

Free things are always cool, and free stories by our awesome authors are even cooler. Check out these free stories and samples available now--they can help you find your next work, or maybe just tantalize you until that sequel comes out. And, they're free.

Don't have an e-reader? No problem--you can download the free Kindle app to your computer, phone, iPod, whatever you use!

This sample contains excerpts from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, Bewitching by Alex Flinn, Balthazar by Claudia Gray, Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton, Incarnate by Jodi Meadows, and Slide by Jill Hathaway.

This sampler has excerpts from Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver, Hallowed by Cynthia Hand, Magic of the Moonlight by Ellen Schreiber, The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting, Everneath by Brodi Ashton, and Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.

This all dystopian sampler has excerpts from Divergent by Veronica Roth, Gone by Michael Grant, Delirium by Lauren Oliver, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, Variant by Robison Wells, Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi, Eve by Anna Carey, and Partials by Dan Wells.

This sampler is all about romantic stories with excerpts from Pretty Little Liars: Ruthless by Sara Shepard, The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell, Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith, The Secret Sisterhood Of Heartbreakers by Lynn Weingarten, and Slide by Jill Hathaway.

A sampler from Simon and Schuster with excerpts from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Witchlanders, Fury, Virtuosity, Dark Inside, and Still Waters!

"Tomorrow is Today" by Julie Cross 

This short story goes with Julie Cross' debut novel, Tempest! Tempest is an awesome, awesome book that you should definitely read. I'm excited to dive into this short story!

"Tortured" by Caragh M. O'Brien

This short story is being advertised as a bridge story between her debut, Birthmarked, and its sequel, Prized. I loved Birthmarked, but haven't read Prized yet, and I am looking forward to both the story and the novel!

Last week I must have downloaded like 30 chapter samples from various places! I went a little click-crazy, haha. But they are an awesome way to "test drive" a book before you purchase it or just to figure out if you'd like it. I didn't have two of these, so thanks!
