Two new Sony Freebies - plus free from Amazon

Just added to the Inkmesh Free Ebooks list:

Dead Witch Walking Free with Bonus Material by Kim Harrison


Quote:
All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party ... and to feed.

Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining -- and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.

A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead ... or undead.

Amberville Free with Bonus Material

Quote:
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.

Now with Bonus Materials

Why don't these books appear in the Sony eBook Store "Bargain Price" / "Free Books" listings?

If you're talking about http://ebookstore.sony.com/category/bargain-priced, my guess is the free list on Sony is manually updated, so there would be a time lag between when the book is first available for free and when it's added to that list. We would know for sure if these two books show up on that list in the next couple of days.

I see the same issue with the B&N free list at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/u/Free...linkid=1549065 - but our BN crawler isn't as smart as the Sony crawler so we did not know about the two free BN books koland mentioned above (they just added one of them to the free ebooks list manually, so now we know). But we found the crawler fix this morning - will be patching it over the weekend so we don't have to rely on B&N updating their freebie list by hand, we would know as soon as these books are actually available for free on bn.com.

Sony shows these ebooks on the free ebooks page now: http://ebookstore.sony.com/category/bargain-priced

That confirms it - Sony's free ebooks page is definitely updated manually. We just fixed the B&N bot as well - I think it is now safe to say that the Inkmesh free ebook lists for Sony and B&N are more accurate that Sony and B&N's own free ebook lists

Now free on Kindle, also:

Amberville Free with Bonus Material, by Tim Davys

Dead Witch Walking, by Kim Harrison

(Perhaps a mod could update the thread name, since these are now free in three major formats/stores - "Two Free Fantasy Books (2/18)" or something similar?)
