Amazon is allowing associates to post free books on their sites without an associate’s code. If you click on a free book offered on our site, you will not be setting a cookie.

Many associates are posting free books without their codes. If you visit our site, click through Amazon from our for-pay book links and then go to an all-free books website to download multiple books, our code will have those free books counted against it.

Book Description Bloopers
Actual descriptions in the Kindle Store, but I won’t embarrass anyone by mentioning the book:
Description: This book tells the story of two second-generation star-crossed lovers facing a hurricane on the Texas coast, hold up in an historic hotel.
My reaction: A hold up! Did the robber get all their money?
Description: Nicolette had been bullied by Jay for most of her school life and that and a few other things had led to her leaving the small town she’d grown up in.
My reaction: That and a few other things have led me to not buy this book.

My reaction: I’ve never seen pain shoot up through an ankle at another person. Must be paranormal.sw2

My reaction: Piece? Piece of what? A piece of pie would be heavenly.

My reaction: Brutal murdering innocent women is light and fun? Those Canadians have a unique sense of humor.
