New Website – Your Action Needed!

This post should only be going to those of you who read the Free Kindle Books and Tips blog via an RSS feed or via email.  There have been some important changes that, unfortunately, require a little bit of action on your part (that’s the bad news), but that action should take you less than 30 seconds (that’s the good news).

What are the changes?  Well, I had the website moved to its own domain vs. the shared version I had on WordPress.  The WordPress version worked out great when I started this blog a few years ago, but with the breadth and size it has become now it was beyond time to move to a dedicated website and hosting solution.  You can check out the new website at http://www.fkbooksandtips.com

To continue receiving the updates via email or an RSS feed, here is what you need to do:


Updates via Email

Please click here or type in http://www.fkbooksandtips.com/subscribe into your computer’s web browser and enter your email address under the “Your email:” line-item  and click the “Subscribe” icon.

Once you do that, you will receive a confirmation email to the email address you just input on the web page: I am sending out a confirmation email to make sure no one is being spammed.  In the email, there is a link to click – once you click it, you will start receiving emails of the free Kindle book offers and tips to maximize the enjoyment of your Kindle.

Some of you may wonder why didn’t I just transfer all of the email addresses to the new site…the short answer is I could, but the emails would really look like &%# and all sorts of other bad things like text-only and summarized.  I would rather think you would like a better-formatted email.  I hope all of you will resubscribe, and I will probably lose a few of you, but for the long-term health of the blog it is necessary to resubscribe.

Updates via RSS Feed

If you have been receiving the blog via RSS feed, you will need to update the URL with the associated feed to http://feeds.feedburner.com/fkbooksandtips

That’s it!  How about checking out the new website at http://www.fkbooksandtips.com and let me know what you think?  My new email address is michael at fkbooksandtips dot com

Thanks!

Closer – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Closer: Devotions to Draw Couples Together by Jim & Cathy Burns is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 27 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/zMqJaP into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Parenting & Families

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The Love Dare challenged individuals to love their spouse more. Closer shows wives and husbands how to grow that love together. Introduced with Scripture verses and engaging stories, these 52 devotionals will inspire couples to draw closer through faith conversations–those quiet talks so vital for emotional and spiritual intimacy in a marriage. Guided, practical action steps round out each reading.

Over the past thirty years we have tried almost every marriage devotional, and to be perfectly honest, we have usually failed at having the discipline to continue. The busyness of life or the feelings of guilt because we missed so many days often caused us to silently ignore what we knew was important. Then we came up with the idea to meet once a week and just talk. This book is an outgrowth of our desire to grow closer as a couple. And now we challenge you and your spouse to do what it takes to connect spiritually and emotionally. Start small and invest thirty minutes a week together, being inspired and communicating with the help of these devotionals. If you miss a week, don’t quit–just pick up where you left off. This is not about a legalistic time. It’s about making practical spiritual growth and connection a priority. Take the challenge! –Jim and Cathy Burns

A power kept secret for 2000 years. A brotherhood broken by murder. A woman who stands to lose everything.

Forged in the fire and blood of martyrs, the Pentecost stones have been handed down through generations of Keepers who kept their power and locations secret.

Until now.

The Keepers are being murdered, the stones stolen by those who would use them for evil in a world transformed by religious fundamentalism. Oxford University psychologist Morgan Sierra is forced into the search when her sister and niece are held hostage. She is helped by Jake Timber from the mysterious ARKANE, a British government agency specializing in paranormal and religious experience.

From ancient Christian sites in Spain, Italy and Israel to the far reaches of Iran and Tunisia, Morgan and Jake must track down the stones through the myths of the early church in a race against time before a new Pentecost is summoned, this time powered by the fire of evil.

CALIGULA OF THE STARS.

Though he was later accused of every crime and sexual perversion in the galaxy, Hope Hubris began as an innocent. Because he defended his older sister against the violent lusts of a wealthy scion, Hope and his peasant family were forced to flee Callisto, one of the moons of Jupiter. Pursued by the bloodthirsty scions across the airless desert, they barely escaped with their lives. The illegal space bubble was overcrowded with refugees, all hoping to reach Jupiter for asylum.

But the space travelers had not reckoned on the terrible threat of high space-the pirates, barbaric men who rape, rob, and murder, with no thought but to satisfy their bestial appetites. It will take all Hope’s ingenuity to survive, but the atrocities he witnesses will never die. There is only one way he can be rid of them . . .

Gift Ideas for Men

Gentlemen, this section is for you:

As a stereotypical guy, I love the beauty and simplicity of gift cards.  With Amazon’s gift cards, I could theoretically get one and print it out with my home computer and printer on Valentine’s Day before I went out for a Valentine’s dinner and the recipient would not be the wiser to my procrastination unless I confessed to it (not that I would do that).

In addition to printing them out at any time, gift cards can be emailed to the recipient.  Amazon is also offering free one-day shipping if you want one of the hard plastic cards and gift envelopes or boxes with your gift card.  Here’s your link so you won’t miss it and have a mad someone who is wondering why you didn’t bring her a present this year: http://amzn.to/tPKzX3

Of course, I’m not opening up the whole discussion of the appropriateness of a gift card….

Have a great rest of the afternoon-

Michael

Category: Suspense

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

It is ten years into the future and the nation is nearing economic collapse. A professor of economics has convinced a small, but exceptional group to act. They believe dictatorial powers will soon be claimed by Washington’s political aristocracy. “Ours is the only form of revolution now possible. But it has an advantage. Our method requires only the lives of the individuals that have stolen our liberty, our lives, and our property.” Congress is given three days “to approve a Term Limits Amendment to the Constitution and send it to the people for their approval. Or the long term incumbents, unless they first resign, will be term-limited in the only way you leave us.” The Department of Justice begins a vengeful and bloody hunt for the terrorist group. But when the first senator is term-limited it is clear the terrorists will not be easily found. They are inside the federal government. In this novel, the same questions asked throughout history are asked again. Is deadly force justified to defend liberty? Who decides? Under what conditions?

Almost Perfect – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Almost Perfect by Julie Ortolon is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4 out of 5 stars based on 67 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/gZj3Dy into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Romance

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The Perfect Trilogy:

Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a bestselling book, How to Have the Perfect Life—until they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up their lives. The worst part is…it’s sort of true. Together they make a pact: they each have one year to face down their fears—and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two!

Book One: Almost Perfect

A Free Spirit and a Reformed Bad Boy — a Perfect Match?

Maddy was always the artistic one of the group, alive with color and mischief from her saucy red curls to her vintage hippie skirts. Her challenge, the friends decide, is to get her artwork accepted at a gallery. A job as arts director at a summer camp near Santa Fe—with its multitude of galleries—seems like a start in the right direction.

There’s just one catch: The camp is run by Maddy’s high school flame, Joe, whose heart she broke—okay, smashed—and his anger towards Maddy hasn’t cooled one bit. But neither has their attraction.

Old desires burn hotter than ever as Joe makes it clear there’s only one way back to his heart: She has to get serious about her art. But will falling in love help or hinder Maddy as she struggles to meet her challenge?

The Shape of Silence – Free Kindle Book

Phoenix Publishing offers one free eBook each month in a variety of eBook formats, including the Kindle; I’ve picked up a couple of really good science fiction novels from them for free that they simultaneously have for sale in the Amazon Kindle store for prices up to $9.99. This month’s free pick is called The Shape of Silence by Stephen Leigh, which you should be pleased to note while this book costs $9.99 in the Amazon Kindle website, you can get it for free if you follow these instructions:

  • Point your computer’s web browser to www.ppickings.com
  • Scroll down about two-thirds of the way on the right-hand side of the web page until you see The Shape of Silence – this page is a little “busy” with lots of text and images.
  • Click on the “FREE EBOOK of the Month” text immediately under the book’s cover.
  • Your computer will next open up a new web browser, which asks you for a coupon code. The code for February is: 9991463
  • Once you type in the coupon code, click the “submit” button.
  • You have the option of signing up for their free eBook newsletter. That’s your choice (I obviously signed up), and you do not have to sign up in order to receive the free eBook.
  • Make your choice and click the appropriate button.
  • At the next screen, scroll all the way down where you have a choice in what eBook format you would like to receive the eBook; you want to choose the “Mobi” version as that is the one most compatible with your Kindle.
  • You will next have the option of opening or saving the file. Let’s choose “save” and make sure you save it to a location on your computer you will remember.
  • As a final step, you will need to transfer the eBook from your computer to your Kindle: that’s a fairly easy process. If you don’t know how to do that, you can click here or type in http://bit.ly/roKqao  into your computer’s web browser to read my free guide on how to transfer content to your computer. This is the same guide I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but you get it for free.

Here is the book’s description:

First contact was never supposed to be like this. A sudden rift appears in near-earth space, causing electronic components to permanently fail and cause total chaos. As Earth’s fragile technological society disintegrates, no one can answer the obvious question—what is the rift, and who or what has created it.

A new generation comes to age attempting to answer these questions, and Taria Spears, an anthropologist, is selected as part of the crew on the exploratory ship Lightbringer. Lightbringer’s mission is to investigate the worm-hole like Rift and, if possible, to pass through it to find out what lies on the other side, and to seek some answers.

But what if all they find is an alien culture where sound, not sight is the primary sense?

Enjoy!

Cook with love and eat well!
