Worth the Fall (Brew Ha Ha #2) Bria Quinlan Free!
Worth the Fall (Brew Ha Ha #2) - Caitie Quinn,Bria Quinlan

Kasey Lane is having a bad week.

Understatement.

Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men.

But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone...or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.

Free Horror Book Haul
The Amulet Thief - Luanne Bennett
Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids - Lon Strickler
Darkness - Brandon Faircloth
The Lighthouse - Ron; Ripley
Surviving the Fall - Stephen Cross
Sker House - C.M. Saunders
After Party (Life After Life, Vol. #1) - Domino
Greensmith Girls: Supernatural Witch Cozy Mystery (Lainswich Witches Series Book 1) - Raven Snow
Disquietly Vol. 1 - James G. Boswell
The Hermit's Creepy Pet (Single Shot Short Story Series Book 10) - Terry M. West

So, with the category Genre: Horror to fill, did I go to my Kindle folder for Horror and choose one of the 53 books waiting to be read? Noooooo...

 

This time of year it's more fun to go to the top 100 Free Books in the Horror category on Amazon and start loading up more! There are certain authors always there that I've learned to skip past because they don't write well or their stuff always turns out to be Romance. Nothing against Romance, but it's not what I look for under Horror and I resent spaces being taken up by inappropriate genres. Advice to writers to get their books listed under as many categories as possible actually harms their reputation.

 

So, I've acquired all those pictured. The Amulet Thief might take over the Relics and Curiosities square to relieve me of an 800+ page book and one of these will fill my Horror genre square. I'm leaning towards Creepy Pet, just my sort of thing.

 

I think I may need to keep a folder for possible future Bingo selections. I even found a cozy that looked fun. I seem to be finding a lot of anthologies this year. That could be an interesting category for a future Bingo.

 

If you're into zombie dystopia, The Fall series is all up for free today. Grab them quick because free offers often end after the weekend. I can't vouch for the quality of any of these but you can't beat the price.

Now I have a TBR problem with arrival of print edition
Amazing Stories: Fall 2018 - Steve Fahnestalk,Gary Dalkin,Robert Silverberg,Kameron Hurley,Julie Czerneda,Jack Clemons,Dave Creek,Drew Hayden Taylor,Paul Levinson,Shirley Meier,Allen Steele,Rudy Rucker,Lawrence Watt-Evans,Steve Davidson

There are actual book ads in this magazine.  Books of interest.  Bad timing for my thinking would eat more into TBR pile with upcoming Bookshelf BINGO and other challenges.

 

 I'm reading ebook edition and collecting print edition -- both are grayscale including ads and graphics except for cover.  Not sure if that's a permanent decision or just their currently low budget for the relaunch.  It's a nicer than expected magazine except for the grayscale (and of course the original magazine was pulp and grayscale) so not complaining, just surprised.  And curious how the color artwork would look.

 

I'm rather used to just ignoring advertising.  It's continually weird to me how the bulk of so-called targeted advertising is so out there  (as much tracking data and analytics as websites use/steal and given that the "genre" and audience demographics of print sbscription is known, you'd think it would be better).

Fall Magic Book Swap OPEN

 

The Fall Magic Book Swap is open!

Who doesn't love a little bit of hocus pocus? A bit of myth and magic? Let's all gather round the bubbling cauldron, grab our brooms and dust off our wands! It's time for another amazing book swap! Here's the timeline:

Sign ups are from September 1st to the 14th.
Partner info will be sent out on the 15th.
Mailing will be due by the 30th.

Extensions are always fine as long as you check with me first. We all have busy times or get distracted.We get it. :)

Here's the requirements:

1. A grimoire. (a book, of course)

2. A witchy brew (a tea, drink mix or something similar)

3. A focus (a cool object that you think your partner may like. Focuses are often used by witches or other spell casters to help them concentrate their magic without exhausting themselves. Stereotypical items are crystal balls, but they can be anything, even a boot. lol)

4. Something to help prep your partner for winter. (they're so busy with their magic that they may have missed something vital in their getting ready for the cold weather. help them out! get creative!)

5. A spell (a note from you)

SIGN UP HERE

I hope you all have fun with this! Magic can mean anything. You can lean toward the magic of mind reading, to the magic of time travel, to the magic of friendship ala My Little Pony. I don't care! Just enjoy yourselves! You know I'm laid back and just want us all to have some laughs. All questions can be sent to me, Mallory. Like I've already said, if you need an extension, just ask. 

I love you guys! You never stop amazing me with your creativity!

Amok! Amok!
