Free e-Books from Tyrus Books’ “Summer of Crime”!

Submitted by on August 2, 2011 – 11:10 pm 7 Comments

Wanted to put up a quick post to alert you to the amazing thing Ben LeRoy and the good people at Tyrus Books are doing: giving away e-books for the rest of the summer! (UPDATE: Poncho reports below that the offer is not available in Latin America.)

For a “Summer of Crime,” a free novel will be given away every week. There is no obligation—just download and read it. LeRoy has repeatedly said all he cares about is that people read and he’s consistently backed this up with his generous actions. (In case you’re interested, my full valentine to Tyrus is here.)

This week’s title is Angela S. Choi’s dark, witty Hello Kitty Must Die, which has that  famous opening line: “It all started with my missing hymen.” And boy, did that MIA hymen start a lot of trouble. You can download it from Amazon here or from Barnes & Noble here. The promotion ends next Monday, August 8, and the schedule for the rest of the free e-books is as follows:

Late Rain by Lynn Kostoff (8/8 – 8/15)

The Wind Knot by John Galligan (8/15 – 8/22)

Untouchable by Scott O’Connor (8/30 – 9/6)

Mark your calendars, tell your friends, and get yourself caught up in crime this summer!
