KINDLE GOODIES

8 POUNDS: EIGHT TALES OF CRIME, HORROR, & SUSPENSE

This Kindle collection features eight stories including Chris Holm's Spinetingler-Award-winner “Seven Days of Rain,” Derringer finalist “The Big Score,” and his Ellery Queen debut “The World Behind.”     This was a suggested purchase by book reviewer Elizabeth White, so I knew that it would be a good one to have.  There wasn't a story in this collection I didn't like and I wasn't disappointed. You can purchase it for $0.99 at Chris F. Holm's website here: CHRIS F. HOLM.  Seriously, the collection is a steal and is a must have for your Kindle collection.




TERMINAL DAMAGE - A DO SOME DAMAGE COLLECTION

Do Some Damage is a group of eight crime writers that share their wisdom on "reading, writing, plot, voice, and all the sordid junk that goes through a writer's brain."  They've combined their talents of story telling into one great collection that you can purchase on your Kindle for $0.99.  You can purchase the collection here: TERMINAL DAMAGE.  You can also follow them on their blog DO SOME DAMAGE.  I stumbled upon the gang at Do Some Damage by accident while looking for book blogs, and I've been a fan ever since.  They are an impressive group with more than one book in my TBR pile.  I'm hoping to be able to meet them at Bouchercon 2011 in St. Louis...if I had my way I'd pay for them all to come to Salt Lake City. As I've told Russel McLean, our liquor laws aren't as strict as they used to be, and some of us in SLC really do like to read.  You can't beat the price for Terminal Damage, and it should definitely be on your Kindle.

Thanks for the mention! So glad you enjoyed it.

Definitely both more than well worth the cost of admission.

I don't have a Kindle or an e-reader or anything, but it sounds like a great deal! Keep up the good work :)

Thanks for the kind words about TERMINAL DAMAGE.

And I have to agree with you about 8 POUNDS. Helluva collection there.

Hey Chris-I should have gone into more details, but it is really hard for me to review perfection. I can say the short story A Better Life completely creeped me out even though I knew what the ending would be. Those blind corners get you every time, don't they?

Mr. Weddle-thanks for noticing my little blog and for sending the link to Twitter. There can be no laughing when I admit this next part...I was three stories into Terminal Damage when I started wondering why all the stories had airport references. Sometimes- the obvious can escape even the brightest of minds. It is a great collection and I'm proud to own it on my kindle.

Good calls. Both of those are cracking books. I've started reading Terminal Damage again because I wanted to see how the stories connected. Clever stff!
