Troubletwisters, by Garth / Williams, Sean Nix is $2.72 for Australian Kindlers (and apparently on sale at Kobo, but I'm not sure for which regions, other than "not in the US").

Book Description
A spectacular new middle-grade fantasy series from NYT bestselling authors Garth Nix and Sean Williams.

Are you a troubletwister?
Jaide and Jack Shield's lives are changing in a very, very strange way. The weather is turning against them. Magical disasters occur when they're around. And a mysterious explosion has just destroyed their house...from the inside.

Without knowing why, the twins are stolen away to live with Grandma X--a relative they've never, ever met. At Grandma X's house, things are even stranger. Weather vanes point in the opposite direction of the wind. Doors appear and disappear. Cats talk.

Jaide and Jack Shield don't know the reason behind all this strangeness. They don't know that they're troubletwisters, and that they must defend the world against a dark, evil force. The time has come for them to discover the truth--and the powers that come with the truth.
Are they ready?

The publisher, Allen & Unwin, has six titles under $2 for those in the US (including the free Writing a Novel, Sydney March 2011-August 2011) and thirty or so under $4 for those in Australia, such as The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society ($2.72) and Prodigal Father, Pagan Son ($3.63); the latter looks like a must for Sons of Anarchy fans.

The AmazonEncore edition of MetaGame ($1.53 / £0.99 UK), by Sam Landstrom, is the Kindle Deal of the day for those in the UK (the US edition is $3.99).

Book Description

Speculative science fiction at its finest, MetaGame by Sam Landstrom is a ‘future gamers’ field guide and a philosophical cyberpunk adventure. In this original and disturbingly irreverent prospective world, gaming is more than a diversion—and gamers are, literally, in it for life. The OverSoul, an enigmatic, unifying force, offers winners points that add up to currency. Reigning champs are given the gift of immortality—while losers are condemned to aging and death. D_Light is one of the best players in his Family and will do anything to win, even if it means committing murder. When he’s invited to a MetaGame—an exclusive, high-stakes competition—he jumps at the chance. But after the first quest, D_Light’s overly ambitious ways brand him a renegade. With a warped sense of freewill that is needed to prevail, D_Light must either kill someone he’s grown to love—or lose everything.



Zoo Station (John Russell Series #1) ($8.99 Kindle, $3.60 B&N), by David Downing, is the Nook Daily Find; will likely be price matched on Kindle in a couple of hours.

Book Description

By 1939, Anglo-American journalist John Russell has spent over a decade in Berlin, where his son lives with his mother. He writes human-interest pieces for British and American papers, avoiding the investigative journalism that could get him deported. But as World War II approaches, he faces having to leave his son as well as his girlfriend of several years, a beautiful German starlet.

When an acquaintance from his old communist days approaches him to do some work for the Soviets, Russell is reluctant, but he is unable to resist the offer. He becomes involved in other dangerous activities, helping a Jewish family and a determined young American reporter. When the British and the Nazis notice his involvement with the Soviets, Russell is dragged into the murky world of warring intelligence services.

14 Free Books for Australians (K)

HarperCollins has 14 newly free books for Australian Kindle customers, under various imprints; most are pre-orders, but a few of the short stories are available now. These range from Children's books to those that are very definitely not for children, so I'll try to list a genre with them, below. I suspect most of these are pricing errors, so may go back up in price at any time (but if you pre-order while they are free, you won't be charged when they are delivered). If you are in Australia and have missed some of the earlier freebies, several are still free (although most are gone). Most of these are unavailable for those in the US (or are not free).

Children's Books
  1. Dark Eden: Phantom File, by Patrick Carman
  2. Outlaw: The Story of Robin Hood, by Michael Morpurgo
  3. Sparrow: The Story of Joan of Arc, by Michael Morpurgo

Short Stories
  1. A Piece of Time, by Traci Harding
  2. The Detox Factor, by Traci Harding
  3. Ghostwriting, by Traci Harding
  4. Curses, by Traci Harding
  5. The Lost Word, by Traci Harding
  6. The Limbo of Luxury, by Traci Harding

Very much NOT Children's Books
  1. Beyond Temptation, by Lisette Ashton
  2. Make Me, by Charlotte Stein
  3. Surrogates, by KD Grace
  4. O for Obedience, by Lucy Salisbury
  5. Across my Knee: The Delights of Spanking, by various
