Freebies and Whatever

Image

I'm currently at loss as to what to blog about. I don't seem to have anything to say. There are some things about blog ethics going on at Dear Author but frankly, my opinion on that matter doesn't warrant comment - if you don't like how I do things on my site, go somewhere else, simple as that. I personally believe that my site is a hobby site rather than one that should conform to some kind of arbitrary standard of "professionalism" - I don't even have an editor, unfortunately - and therefore anyone who attempts to compare it to, say, All About Romance must be having a laugh. Don't like, don't come. I'll live.

So, I don't really have much to say, for now, so why not I do a round-up on free ebooks that you can get? The Romance Diva members always have some kind of freebie stories on their website, but I also know of some authors who band together and put out free erotic sometimes paranormal anthologies. The ones that I have and know of are:

Studs R Us
By Darragha Foster, Lila Dubois, Chaos Delight, Colleen Love, Kelly Vitollo, RL Stuemke, Paige Burns, Jessica Jerome, and Denysé Bridger
I got mine at darraghafoster.com - look under "Books"

Clicherotica
By the Writers of the Purple Page
I got mine at the Mojocastle Press freebie page.

Dunvegas 2007
By Sela Carsen, Ember Case, Bianca D'Arc, Carolan Ivey, Jenna Leigh, Jody Wallace, SJ Willing, and Xakara
I got mine at Carolan Ivey's website here.

Fantasies Hussy Style
By Nicole Austin, Nathalie Gray, Sahara Kelly, Sally Painter, and Ciana Stone
I got mine at Nathalie Gray's website here.

So, did I miss any other freebie anthologies out there? Let me know and who knows, maybe people visiting this blog will appreciate it too.

Oh, and before I go, here's my favorite song by Australian songstress Wendy Matthews, Friday's Child. I love the words to the song.

Romance Divas did a Valentine's Day Free E-book Challenge. This goes to a list of links: http://www.romancedivas.com/ebook2008.html

24 stories in various lengths, heat levels and genres. Some are un-pubbed, some pubbed. You never know what you'll find! I contributed a re-worked fairy tale.

I knew I was forgetting something. Thanks for the Dunvegas nod! :)

Clicherotica Volume 2 is in the works right now. We change the freebie book frequently...they're author donations.
