As usual, I don’t vouch for this book, and it comes from a company that is not (to my knowledge) blocking text-to-speech. As a promotional title, it may not be free for long.
Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1)

Published by HarperCollins
Here’s a chance to get the first book in a popular series for free…and it has bonus material! The bonus material is a preview of the 8th book in the series, Black Magic Sanction (which can be pre-ordered, but is due on the Kindle on April 6, 2010).
I get asked sometimes why books are offered for free, especially a book like this that is selling well. If you like it, the hope is that you’ll buy other books from the author or in the series…that’s why they give you the first one. It’s a relatively inexpensive form of advertising for the publisher, with probably a high sell-through rate, and really good customer relations value.
Oh, this one is about vampires and stuff.
It’s a modern paranormal mystery, if you want to get a bit more specific.
