Freebie flash! Folks, Secret, Okra, Shoes, Score, Flower, Web, Truth

As usual, I don’t vouch for these books, and they come from companies that are not (to my knowledge) blocking text-to-speech. As promotional titles, they may not be free for long. Note: these books are free in the USA: prices in other countries may vary.

Special note: I think this is my fiftieth Freebie Flash!  :)  I’ve started having some fun putting together messages with one word from each book title as the post title…don’t know if I’ll keep that up, but I had fun with this one.  ;)

The Goddess of Fried Okra
by Jean Brashear 
Published by BelleBooks (a publisher of “Southern Fried Fiction”)

On a journey of self-discovery, a former cocktail waitress encounters the fiction of Robert E. Howard.  I don’t know how really geeky this is going to be, but the reviews are good at Amazon.

A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street
Ociee Nash #1
by Milam McGraw Propst 
published by Mercer University Press (a university publisher)

This is contemporary fiction.  It’s interesting: on her site, she says that the Kindle store is giving away 10,000 downloads.  I haven’t really heard of them limiting a giveaway to a certain number of downloads before, but there’s no reason they couldn’t do that.  Well, I’m not sure how they would manage the 10,001 customer: what if you clicked when it was free and someone else had just bought the ten thousandth?

How Zappos Shoes in Success 
by the editors of New Word City
Published by FT Press (a business and finance publisher)

How do you know you are a successful, innovative web business?  When Amazon buys you.  ;)  Amazon bought Zappos a while back.  This is a short, by the way: 106kb.

Rorey’s Secret 
Country Road Chronicles #1
by Leisha Kelly
published by Revell (part of Baker, a faith-based publisher)

This is the first in a series (but I think it’s not the first series with the characters) set in 1938. 

Curious Folks Ask: 162 Real Answers on Amazing Inventions, Fascinating Products, and Medical Mysteries 
by Sherry Seethaler

Seethaler seems to be a science writer and columnist.  This sounds like a fun one…don’t know how good it is, but I like this kind of thing.  :)
