I’ve recommended books from other sites from time-to-time as there are book sources for your Kindle out there other than the Amazon website. Some of these third-part websites are pretty good, and some of them leave a lot to be desired. Of course, that is just my opinion and it all depends upon your point of view: the sites (and authors) I think are “pretty good” you may think are awful and vice versa. At least I’m not recommending things to you that cost you $9.99 each to try out!
One of those third-party sites is Smashwords – it’s a place where basically anyone can be published if you follow their formatting rules, and they have a lot of books out there that (a) cost money, and (b) are free. They also allow the author to set their own pricing, and periodically authors offer discounts on their own books if you put in a coupon code that is valid for a certain time period.
One of those authors is NB VanYoos, who is offering two of his four science fiction titles at 100% off (he has two others at 50% off) through the end of May if you use a unique coupon code. To learn more about this author and link to his books, you can click here or point your web browser to http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/nbvanyoos
Here are the two titles and the coupon codes you need to get these titles for free:
Admiral’s Ghost: Book One in the Onyalum Series – coupon code: VC53G
The Trial Of Gesh: Book Two in the Onyalum Series – coupon code: WF94T
You will need to download these books to your computer, then transfer them over to your Kindle. If you are unfamiliar with, or need a refresher on, how to transfer files from your computer to your Kindle it’s actually pretty easy – you can read my guide on how to do so by clicking here.
