5 Free E-books

I've had a glut of luck in finding cheap or free books lately. Not that I'm actively looking, but it's nice since work has been slow in coming in the last couple of months. Here are, according to Hope Clark of Funds for Writers, the top 5 free e-books for fiction writers.

To get the last book, The Marshall Plan Fiction Makeover, you have to sign up, confirm your e-mail, and then the site sends you a link for the book. A little more work than the other four books, and I'm a little suspicious of it because it aggressively touts the Makeover Software. And the site is confusing; I wasn't sure what link to click on at first. Just don't click on any link on the site, and you should be fine.

In other news, I just got hired to write some articles through a Funds For Writers e-mail. I will report back on how everything pans out.

Those of you dropping by who might have missed my post on Stephen Pressfield's THE WAR OF ART should know this book is on sale on his site for $1.99. Today's the last day to get it for this price, so don't miss out! It's a kick-ass book.

The War of Art - Special Deal

Hey folks - Stephen Pressfield wrote a terrific book titled THE WAR OF ART, which I have and have read, but the book is now in storage. If you've outgrown the gentleness of Julia Cameron's wonderful THE ARTIST'S WAY and need something a little more kick ass, this is your book. The e-book is available tomorrow and Thursday (October 20 and 21) for $1.99. You cannot beat that price unless you steal it. (Don't steal it!) Here's the link.

Kindle App

Though I've had the Kindle app on my Blackberry for a while, I just downloaded the Kindle app for my Mac desktop. I lucked into finding some free Kindle books on myths ( a big interest of mine), and I just checked my recommendations on Amazon. I think I've downloaded thirty free books.

My head may explode.
