Wanna Get Lucky?

My followers are lucky leprechauns. They get to hear about FREE e-books all the time. You know who else is lucky?  You, because you're about to follow my blog too, right?


I'm very excited to do another blog hop. Thanks to I'm a Reader, Not a Writer, Aspiring YA Author Cindy Thomas and Books Complete Me for hosting. This one is pretty darn big and I'm so glad you made it all the way down to little number 109 (or where ever my blog is listed now - at least halfway through the list. Phew!)

Click here for the linky to all the other hippity hoppity blogs. 

For most of you this is your first visit to Amy Denim's 365 days, 365 Free E-books.
So here's the gist.
I'm poor. 
I'm a reading addict. 
I got a Kindle for Christmas. 
I download free e-books for it.

But there are A LOT of free ebooks available, not only from Amazon, but other places too. How is one to choose which books to get and which to skip?

That's where I come in.

Almost everyday, I download around ten-ish e-books from various sources. I read one and put up a review letting you know whether to One-Click it (which is the fast and easy way to download from Amazon) or to skip it. 
I pepper these posts with advice for authors, recommendation on whether to check out other books, and my own personal rants.
The days I don't review a free book I post resources to find free e-book, like this one, and this one, and that one, and that one, oh, and here's another one (Did you know you can get them from your local neighborhood library too.) I've even guest blogged about where to get free ebooks. Sometimes I post my own downloads of the day, so you can grab a bunch if you want.

All you have to do is click on the photo of the book cover that interests you, check to make sure it's still free (most are limited time offer promos) and then one-click to get it. You'll have your e-book reader filled up in no time.

I'm a Romance writer (proud member of RWA, my local Colorado chapter and Rainbow Romance Writers), so most of the books featured are in my favorite genre. I like to throw in some YA, general fiction and even a couple of non-fiction books just for fun every once in a while.

I also try to do at least one giveaway a month.
The nature of free ebooks is here today gone tomorrow, so a majority of my giveaways are spur of the moment. Best way to find out about them...subscribe. (surprised aren't you?)

The giveaways so far were:
A paperback copy of Jean M. Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear 
(I'm and Earth's Children Ambassador)

5 Kindle copies of SEAL of my Dreams by a truckload of Romance Authors 
(proceeds benefit Veterans Research Corporation, 
a non-profit fundraiser for veterans' medical research)

A Kindle Copy of Marie Sexton's Cinder -  
A CinderFella story--it's all fun and games until somebody loses a shoe...  

A two-pack of Jenn LeBlanc's groundbreaking illustrated romances 
The Rake and the Recluse: Freedom & Found

So, you wanna get lucky? Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm not offering that... I'm giving away to you, my lovely new readers, or possibly one of my lucky already-a-follower followers, a choice of one of the newest releases from some of my favorite Romance authors (who all happen to be chapter mates of mine)
