Where do you find free books?

Obviously authors should get paid for their work. If we can’t afford a computer or are stressing about how to pay rent, we’re not going to be able to write. But giving away the first book in a series for free, either as a limited-time sale or a permanent promotion, is a tried-and-true method of finding new readers.

For readers, it’s a great risk-free way to try out new authors. Read the first book for free and then buy the rest of the series if you’re hooked or move on to something else if not. But where can you find free books?

All over the place if you know where to look.

Directly on Storefronts

Kobo has a dedicated free ebook page that updates regularly, and both Apple Books and Amazon have free lists in bestselling genres. It’s definitely worth searching wherever you buy ebooks from—clicking that download button is extra easy when you don’t have to worry about cost.

I tend to download free ebooks in batches. I’ll browse through the lists, stock up on about ten or so for my ereader, and then read through those at my leisure. Then a few months later I’ll repeat the cycle.

A thrilling conclusion to a trilogy that really captivated me.

The Cruelest Curse Cover

Magic, warfare, and romance collide in this action-packed conclusion to a spellbinding urban fantasy series.

Leigh Morgan defeated the magical, monstrous denizens of Otherworld. She survived the curse their queen put on her in revenge and wielded their most legendary weapon in battle. But the demonic forces invading Otherworld now are worse than anything she’s ever fought: powerful, cruel, and cannibalistic.

Leigh would return to the human world and leave the arrogant Others to rot except for one reason: Prince Dredarion Rath, the sly, sorcerous man who stole her heart. She’ll fight at his side to save his people even if it means joining forces with her former enemies. But when the worst happens and Leigh ends up cut off from Dredarion, injured and imprisoned, she’ll have to find a way to save the kingdom and the prince alone…or die trying.

Read the final installment in the Dark and Otherworldly series and get swept away in forbidden romance, epic battles, and deadly magic. The Cruelest Curse is a romantic fantasy novel that fans of the genre won’t want to miss. Buy now and return to Otherworld for one last adventure.

(While I try to give short refreshers of the events of previous books, you really need to read the first two novellas to understand this one, so if you’re a new reader, I recommend you start with Poison and Honey.)

It’s hard to believe this series is over. Thank you all for coming on this journey with me, and I hope you enjoy the final installment.

Poison and Honey CoverKeep your head down. Watch out for dark magic. And whatever you do, stay away from the sly, handsome prince.

Leigh Morgan has known that magic exists ever since an unearthly monster abducted her sister. It’s why she’s in Otherworld now, posing as a servant in its dark, decadent palace. She’s gathering intelligence and working with a small band of allies to bring down the Others and free their human captives. Her mission depends on blending in, so the last thing she wants is to attract the attention of a cunning prince.

Dredarion Rath wants one thing: to disgrace his older brother and prove himself the worthier heir to the throne. And out of all the servants in the palace, he chooses Leigh to help him. Just her luck.

Now Leigh has to keep her work a secret from a bewitching man who sees right through her–and who’s not nearly as cold and inhuman as he seems. She can’t screw this up, or the humans forced into servitude will never go home. But juggling two conspiracies at once, it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down, and the man she’s falling for has her executed for her betrayal…

Poison and Honey is an urban fantasy novella with a strong romantic subplot, perfect for fans of determined heroines, palace intrigue, and the fae. Download it today and venture into Otherworld—if you dare.

Free ebook Friday: Balanced on the Blade’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker

Free ebooks are the best. They’re a great way for readers to try new series risk-free, and they help authors reach new audiences. But there’s just so many of them that it can be hard to find one you like.

Free ebook Friday spotlights a free ebook I’ve personally read and enjoyed, and hopefully, it’ll help you find a good read. The posts come out on random Fridays, not weekly, and the books featured will probably be speculative fiction.

This week’s pick is:

Balanced on the Blade's Edge

Book Description

Colonel Ridge Zirkander isn’t the model of military professionalism—he has a tendency to say exactly what’s on his mind, and his record has enough demerits to wallpaper the hull of an airship—but as the best fighter pilot in the Iskandian army, he’s used to a little leniency from his superiors. Until he punches the wrong diplomat in the nose and finds himself issued new orders: take command of a remote prison mine in the inhospitable Ice Blades Mountains. Ridge has never been in charge of anything larger than a flier squadron—what’s he supposed to do with a frozen fortress full of murderers and rapists? Not to mention the strange woman who shows up right before he arrives… Continue reading Free ebook Friday: Balanced on the Blade’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker
