Free Kindle books! (Sep 13)

Good day, people! Here are your quick picks of selected Kindle books. All of these are 4-star ratings or higher, and free today!

Wool, by Hugh Howey.

Have you experienced Wool yet? My daughter and I both read this series at the same time (on our separate Kindles), and we both enjoyed it immensely. We quickly got immersed in the characters and the extraordinary situations surrounding them.

Wool is beautifully-written, mysterious, and touching - and it all starts with this first book in the series. Get it free today and see what 500 enthusiastic readers are talking about!

"This story is terrific. I was completely immersed, watching Howey slowly paint a picture of a society gone wrong through the eyes and discovery of some truly compelling characters." -- Boing Boing Review

"The old assumptions about indie books no longer hold true, and readers need to be prepared to adjust their expectations accordingly. The Wool Omnibus is a great book and deserves recognition as a full fledged contribution to the science fiction genre." --'s GeekDad Review"

Thousands of them have lived underground. They've lived there so long, there are only legends about people living anywhere else. Such a life requires rules. Strict rules. There are things that must not be discussed. Like going outside. Never mention you might like going outside.

Or you'll get what you wish for.

58 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 498 reviews, and free today.

Diary of a Confessions Queen, by Kathy Carmichael.

Want some humor with your mystery? Then this fun and entertaining whodunit from Kathy Carmichael is for you, free today.

""I enjoy her story line, her humor, and her fresh voice." -- Jeannie Zokan

"I hope Hollywood hears about Kathy Carmichael, all of her books would make wonderful movies." -- Robin Aylesworth

Confessions writer Amy Crosby has put her life on hold for the last seven years after the disappearance of her husband, Dan. 

In writing for True Lies Magazine, guilt-ridden Amy takes on the abilities her fictional characters confess to, such as the time she thought she was psychic after researching clairvoyants. With fatalistic acceptance of the craziness in her life, she uses humor to cope; but when the home Dan bought for them is about to be foreclosed, her only answer is his having him declared legally dead and using his life insurance policy. 

Her home is safe - that is, until she receives a blackmail note. Equal parts mystery and humor, this novel is sure to keep readers guessing - and laughing - until the end.

242 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 5 reviews, and free today.

Byte-Sized: A Collection of Flash Fiction, by Janice Abel.

Ready for a change of pace? How about some flash fiction?

This book has 24 very short stories from different authors. Each of these can be read in one short sitting or subway ride, or to pass those empty minutes waiting outside your daughter's principal's office. Not that I have any experience with the latter!

"I've not been acquainted with the concept of flash fiction. Wow, now I get it! And I have to say this collection of shorts by various authors is incredibly well done. They were all enjoyable reads and gotten through quickly, though to be honest, the sweetness was over before I'd gotten started and left me wanting more. I'd definitely read more of every one of these authors... great collection!" -- Stacy, Amazon reviewer

Byte-sized stories at your fingertips. From cheeky babies, to burning neighborhoods, to government experiments gone awry, this collection of 24 flash fiction stories can give you your fiction fix in a pinch.

Flash fiction is short form stories that can be told in 50-1500 words. Also art, according to FictionBrigade. It's a genre of its own. Not poetry, not quite short stories, but delightful slices of life that can each be read in one sitting.

93 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 11 reviews, and free today.
