Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler is $2.99 for the month of March.
Quote:
The first recorded case of Selkies on the eastern seaboard comes to us from Plymouth in 1765, where a lobsterman recorded a Selkie surprising a vampire in the middle of a storm:

“Borne aloft by mighty flippers, the Selkie did pounce upon the vampire as he wandered the beach pining for his beloved.”

Since then, the Selkie has fallen out of popular lore, but with TEMPEST RISING, Nicole Peeler is bringing the Selkie back. It’s a seaside fantasy chock full of mystery, romance and supernatural beasts, and as this month’s Orbital Drop it’s just $2.99 at ebook stores in the US. Dive in today!

Reader comments on Amazon indicate that 11:59 is not a complete, finished book, but an excerpt which leaves the reader hanging. I think I'll wait, in that case. I hate to be left dangling!

Murder in Passy: An Aimee Leduc Investigation Set in Paris, by Cara Black, free in the Kindle store. Grab this one fast - it's the latest in her <i>Aimee Leduc</i> series and was just released. No doubt, this is a pricing error that won't last long.

Book Description
The village-like neighborhood of Passy, home to many of Paris’s wealthiest residents, is the last place one would expect a murder. But when Aimée Leduc’s godfather, Morbier, a police commissaire, asks her to check on his girlfriend at her home there, that’s exactly what Aimée finds. Xavierre, a haut bourgeois matron of Basque origin, is strangled in her garden while Aimée waits inside. Circumstantial evidence makes Morbier the prime suspect, and to vindicate him, Aimée must identify the real killer. Her investigation leads her to police corruption; the radical Basque terrorist group, ETA; and a kidnapped Spanish princess.

Get Published ($9.99 US), by Infinite Ideas, is free for UK Kindle customers, either in the US or the UK store (for now). This appears to be a self-published title, but I don't see it at Smashwords.

Update: now also free in the US.

Book Description
It has never been easy for new authors to find a publisher but in the last few years it has become significantly harder. In 2008, the average author earned less than £7000 per annum. According to The Times approximately 200,000 books were available for sale in the UK in 2007. Of that total, 190,000 titles sold fewer than 3,500 copies. The top 5% of titles by sales volume accounted for over 60% of total book sales. No wonder publishers are careful about signing new writers. But there is good news in amongst all the doom and gloom. Right now, it has never been easier to be published. Everyone who posts something on Facebook is in effect a published author. And some blogs are read by tens of thousands of people daily, many more than might pick up a physical book by the same author. Then there's self-publishing, vanity publishing, print on demand and so on. But how do you find your way round this minefield? Get published has been written by publishing insiders to help new authors understand the way publishers think and set about publishing if they can't get a commercial publisher interested.

Nothing beats free like the library! But many libraries (including one of the larges sytems -- the Toronto Public Library) don't support Kindle for their e-books. Pity!

Sweet Baklava, by Debby Mayne, is free in the Kindle store, courtesy of Christian publisher Abingdon Press.

Book Description
The product of a split home, Paula Andrews is conflicted about the only guy she's ever loved, Nick Papadopoulos, on leave from the military. When the two see each other after years of separation, the awkwardness is replaced by pounding hearts and memories sweeter than the baklava in Nick's aunt's bakery.

Nick's dad begs him to leave the military and join the family to keep their struggling sponge-diving business alive. Although Nick loves the military, he's willing to put it aside to be with Paula. However, she doesn't want to do anything that will make him resent her.

Paula experiences all sorts of emotional tugs - from Nick going back to his base in Texas to her mother coming to her for emotional support. Nick's cousins are relentless in their scheming to keep the flame burning.

Years later, and after their lives have grown apart, is it possible for these two people to rekindle what they once had?

Amberville, by Tim Davys, free for Canadia/Europe/Asia/Pacific only (so far)

Book Description
What does it mean to be bad?

Eric Bear has it all: a successful career, a beautiful wife, a blissful home. He knows he's been lucky; a while back, his life revolved around drugs, gambling, a gang of stuffed-animal thugs, and notorious crime boss Nicholas Dove.

But the past isn't as far away as Eric had hoped. Rumors are swirling that Dove is on the Death List and that he wants Eric to save him. If Eric fails to act, his beloved wife, Emma Rabbit, will be torn apart, limb by limb.

With a nod to the best of noir and the wisest of allegories, and interlaced with greed and gangsters, Amberville depicts an alternate world that mirrors our own realities and moral concerns, and reminds us of the inextricable link between good and evil.

Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny, by Suze Orman, free for Canadia/Europe/Asia/Pacific only (so far)

Book Description
Why is it that women, who are so competent in all other areas of their lives, cannot find the same competence when it comes to matters of money?

Suze Orman investigates the complicated, dysfunctional relationship women have with money in this groundbreaking new book. With her signature mix of insight, compassion, and soul-deep recognition, she equips women with the financial knowledge and emotional awareness to overcome the blocks that have kept them from making more out of the money they make. At the center of the book is The Save Yourself Plan—a streamlined, five-month program that delivers genuine long-term financial security. But what’s at stake is far bigger than money itself: It’s about every woman’s sense of who she is and what she deserves, and why it all begins with the decision to save yourself.
