Bargain Ebooks

‘Tis the season to unwrap new Kindles!  For all those newbies who might be looking for inexpensive children’s ebooks, I’m starting a new category on my blog:  Bargain Ebooks.  I hope to contribute to it regularly during the next year, but to start off right, I’m going to list my favorites from 2011 in no particular order.  All of them are 3.99 or under!

Oscar’s Gift, by Lisa Rivero - a beautifully-written story about homesteading in South Dakota.  8-12  (my review)

Here Comes Mr. Trouble, by Brett Battles - fast-paced fun sure to please adventure lovers.  8-12  (my review)

Seranfyll, by Christina Daley - a fantastic world with lots of interesting characters.  12+  (my review)

Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (book 1), by Elise Stokes - adventure series with a kid superhero.  10+  (my review)

Sea Cutter, by Timothy C. Davis - a high seas adventure with non-stop action.  8-12  (my review)

The Prize, by Lars D. Hedbor – a story within the American Revolution.  14+  (my review)

And of course my own books:

The Quill Pen - a fun fantasy.  8-12  (watch the trailer)

    Super idea Michelle! I finally broke down and bought a kindle this year, Question: Have you ever considered text to speech options? My eyesight is failing and this would also open up your market to the visually impaired.

    I love your books, I’m proud to be a relative and acquaintance of such a great author! PS – if you ever get into genealogy I have the story of my Grandpa Isenhoff and his life in South Dakota before they moved to our home state. It could be a great jumping off point for a story – it is interesting anyway. Take care and Happy New Year!

      I run into audio books on Amazon every now and then. They’re fairly expensive. And I thought I heard some Kindles do have a text to speech option. I know they are equipped with audio, but I’ve never looked into it. If I run across any books of interest, I’ll pass them on! Have you ever considered podcasts? Podiobooks.com has all FREE podcasts. I’ve considered doing some of my own books, but I just haven’t found time.

      Troy’s dad does have a lot of pictures and info about Grandpa. I’ve read some of it, and it is really interesting. At the moment, though, I have three more ideas for novels – that should last me the next three to four years! You should read Oscar’s Gift, by Lisa Rivero. It takes place in SD at roughly that same time, a little earlier, and it’s only .99!
