Free stuff, discounts and e-book week.

It's e-book week and I may be a bit behind here so you'll have to shop fast but lots of m/m publishers have deals on this week to celebrate.

To start, freebies.

MLR Press is offering Laura Baumbach's Details of the Hunt (number 2 is coming - yay), LA Boneyard by PA Brown and The Hitchhiker by Stevie Woods.

I haven't read LA Boneyard or The Hitchhiker yet but I downloaded them today. I loved Details of the Hunt and I am so not a sci-fi fan, so if it worked for me, it should have wide appeal even if that's not your genre of usual choice. The freebies are little tiny icons at the top of the page.

You can win one of two e-readers HERE. You have to find the answer to a question found on the webpage, but if you are willing to do the work you might be the lucky winner of a Nook or a Kobo. It's open to readers outside of North America but I think you have to pay for shipping.

Dreamspinner Press has 20% off all e-books so snap up some deals there before Saturday night.

Amber Allure doesn't seem to have something directly related to e-book week but I see they have all novels and novellas 25% off in March.

Silver Publishing has a special on: Make a purchase during eBook Week and automatically stand a chance to win a Kindle eReader. You want more? Purchase a New or Coming Soon release and receive 30% off any of our backlist titles.

Rainbow e-books also has a special on this week. In celebration of eBook Week everything in the store is 20% off now through March 12th. Each day at 10pm we'll draw a user and give them everything on their Wishlist. On Saturday, March 12th at 10pm the winner will receive a brand new Kindle AND everything on their Wishlist. Every dollar you spend enters you to win!

These are some of the bigger publishers/resellers of m/m books that I usually shop at. If you are in the Good Reads group, check out Jase's thread where he lists some other smaller sales or more specific themes. People can add deals as they find them.

Happy Shopping. I love being an enabler. :-)

And as a special reward, a cookie or two.
I'm pretending it's warm enough to go to the beach to see these guys, rather than prepping myself for 10 inches ... of snow.

Nice beach photos!

Tam said...

Thanks Val. I so wish it was summer, I'd even settle for spring. This 0F with the wind thing is getting really old.

Chris said...

Such a handy list! SO linking to this for Friday. :)

Tam said...

Glad to be of service Chris. :-)

Thanks for all the scoop Tam! Sorry about the 10 inches :(

K. Z. Snow said...

Thanks, Tam! We got eight more inches of heavy, wet snow since last night, so I share your disgust with winter.

Chris said...

Ack! How did that miss us? We had <2 inches overnight.

Tam said...

"Sorry about the 10 inches" Under other circumstances Wren ... ;-)

I don't know when it's going to stop KZ. Somebody needs to find those damn groundhogs and smack them around a bit.

You do realize you've jinxed yourself now right Chris?

Chris said...

Oh oh.

K. Z. Snow said...

Chris, I think it was a fairly narrow but intense band that passed to the south of you. When I cleared off the deck this morning, that crap felt like it weighed about 5 lbs. per cubic inch.

Poor dogs have less and less clearance to do their business! :(

Patti (@TheLoveJunkee) said...

Sorry that 10 inches had to be snow :(

Nice cookies - I'm strangely fascinated by that shoulder tat :)

Lily said...

Thanks for the links... and the beach cookies. ;)

Jenre said...

I saw the MLRP books for sale yesterday and was going to blog about it too, except my neck was killing me and I couldn't bear to type! You saved me the bother now :).

Thanks for all the info!

Thanks for the info, Tam!

There's a choice of freebie five story anthologies over on Xcite's website - most are het, but All The Boys is m/m, and One More Night has some m/m/f stories (okay, I'm saying that because I have a story in there!)

Tam said...

Thanks Patti, the school buses aren't canceled this morning so I guess it's not that bad. It's going to pour rain later. Sigh. Freaky weather.

You're welcome Lily and Jen. I aim to please. Hope your neck is better today Jen.

Oh, thanks Josephine. I'll definitely check those out because who can resist FREE. :-)

This sure did warm me up this morning, it is raining and cold over here.

Happy Thursday!
