Today's post will be short. Don't worry, there's going to be another post Friday, and it will be another Characters In Costume! :)
Two authors I highly respect, and get lots of writing advice through Go Teen Writers from, both have books for free in the Kindle store on Amazon. Now, you don't have to own an actual Kindle device to download these books. Almost every computer, ipod, or device can have a Kindle app downloaded onto it. We're trying to get both of their books into the top 100. Jill's has made it to 70 already!
Here's a little about the books, and links to get them on your Kindle app/device!
By Darkness Hid by Jill Williamson - Half of Er’Rets is locked beneath an impenetrable shroud. On the side
that still sees the sun, two young people struggle to understand the
mind-communication abilities thrust upon them.
It's called bloodvoicing. Some say it's a gift. One of the newly "gifted" wish it had never come.
has been a slave all his life. Worse than a slave—a stray. He is
consigned to the kitchens of a lord and forced to swallow a foul potion
every day. When an enigmatic knight offers to train Achan for the
Kingsguard, he readily accepts. But his new skills with the sword do not
prepare him for the battle raging between the voices in his head.
Sparrow is not who she seems. She masquerades as a boy to avoid capture
by the powerful forces that seek to exploit her. But Vrell feels called
to help a young squire who recently discovered his bloodvoicing gift,
even if doing so requires her to work with those who could destroy her.
Achan learns to use his new ability, Vrell struggles to shut hers down.
All the voices strive to learn Achan and Vrell's true identities—and a
different kind of voice is calling them both.
Toward a destination that is by darkness hid.
Me, Just Different by Stephanie Morrill - Getting a fresh start is harder than it looks.
Skylar Hoyt is a
girl who seems to have it all--she's pretty, popular, and has a
great-looking boyfriend. Her senior year should be the best one yet. But
a horrible experience at a summer party has changed everything. Now
she's vowing to make better choices, including going back to church. But
as Skylar tries to gain new perspective on life, the world as she knows
it begins to fall apart.
Her parents are constantly fighting.
Her younger sister has a big secret that Skylar is forced to keep. The
guy she's dating is annoyingly jealous. And the new guy down the street
is just plain annoying. In the midst of the chaos, Skylar starts to
wonder who her real friends are and, even more importantly, who she is.
