Free Books

I’m not sure how many of my readers have purchased the Amazon Kindle subscription service called Kindle Unlimited (KU for short), but if you have, I thought you should take advantage of some of my books.

Most, but not all, of my novels are in Kindle Unlimited. Which means that you can read them for free if you have KU.

There has been quite a bit of discussion about the service, which is similar to some other subscription plans for books.

Do you have KU? Do you like it?

Let me know what you think! In the meantime, check out these books which are my most popular among KU readers:

Kindle Unlimited

There has been an awful lot of talk in the book world about Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Select. From the author side, most of the chatter has been negative.

Famous author Hugh Howey has a partner called Data Guy. Together, they often publish about findings they are able to glean by sifting through…you guessed it…data.

My own experience with KindleUnlimited has been mixed. I feel like I’ve found new readers, but some new and unusual dynamics have revealed themselves in the marketplace.

Like Joe Konrath, I believe in experimenting. Trying new things. And seeing what works for me. So I have some books in KindleUnlimited and some are not.

If you are a member of KindleUnlimited, I believe you pay around $9.99 a month and you can read as many books as you want. I hope you’ll consider some of my stories.

If not, you can always read my stuff the old-fashioned way…you know…buying them.

KUBANNER

The Recruiter – 99 cents

Spring is almost here.  I know where some of you live, but I can tell you that for me this has felt like a LONG winter.  How are all of you handling the cold and snow?

I’ve been holed up in my office for the last couple of months.  I’ve decided to drop my pen name, Dani Amore, and go with my real name, Dan Ames.  And I just released Episode Three of my serial ROOM 729.

ROOM729CoverEP3AMESA couple folks have asked how many episodes there will be and I can confidently tell you there will be no more than six.  If you don’t have Kindle Unlimited (the series was kind of designed with that in mind) and don’t want to spend 99 cents a shot, I will bundle them all together when I’m done and sell it as a novel.

Speaking of KU, most of my books are now available on other platforms like Nook, Kobo and Apple’s iBooks.

TheRecruiterCoverFINALAMESI also wanted to mention that I’ve dropped the price on THE RECRUITER to 99 cents.  If you haven’t read it, grab it.  If you’ve read it, please feel free to share the sale price on social media.

Also, my second Wallace Mack thriller THE MURDER STORE could use some reviews.  If you want a signed copy of one of my books, just leave a review and send me a note.  This offer is good only to my newsletter subscribers.  You guys rock, and thank you for supporting my writing. I couldn’t do it without you!

Stay warm!
