More inexpensive e-book goodies!

You can download a combo of James S. A. Corey's excellent Leviathan Wakes and Daniel Abraham's The Dragon's Path for 2.99$ here!

Here's the blurb for Leviathan Wakes:

Welcome to the future. Humanity has colonized the solar system – Mars, the Moon, the Asteroid Belt and beyond – but the stars are still out of our reach.

Jim Holden is XO of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, The Scopuli, they find themselves in possession of a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for – and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.

Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to The Scopuli and rebel sympathizer, Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.

Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations – and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe

If you enjoy Leviathan Wakes, you can also get James S. A. Corey's The Butcher of Anderson Station: A Story of The Expanse for 1.99$ here.

Here's the blurb:

A new story set in the world of The Expanse. One day, Colonel Fred Johnson will be hailed as a hero to the system. One day, he will meet a desperate man in possession of a stolen spaceship and a deadly secret and extend a hand of friendship. But long before he became the leader of the Outer Planets Alliance, Fred Johnson had a very different name. The Butcher of Anderson Station.

This is his story

And here's the blurb for The Dragon's Path:

Summer is the season of war in the Free Cities.

Marcus wants to get out before the fighting starts. His hero days are behind him and simple caravan duty is better than getting pressed into service by the local gentry. Even a small war can get you killed. But a captain needs men to lead — and his have been summarily arrested and recruited for their swords.

Cithrin has a job to do — move the wealth of a nation across a war zone. An orphan raised by the bank, she is their last hope of keeping the bank’s wealth out of the hands of the invaders. But she’s just a girl and knows little of caravans, war, and danger. She knows money and she knows secrets, but will that be enough to save her in the coming months?

Geder, the only son of a noble house is more interested in philosophy than swordplay. He is a poor excuse for a soldier and little more than a pawn in these games of war. But not even he knows what he will become of the fires of battle. Hero or villain? Small men have achieved greater things and Geder is no small man.

Falling pebbles can start a landslide. What should have been a small summer spat between gentlemen is spiraling out of control. Dark forces are at work, fanning the flames that will sweep the entire region onto The Dragon’s Path — the path of war

Two full-length novels for 2.99$??? It doesn't get much better than this! ;-)

Okay, guys. . .

I'm not going to spoon-feed you the whole thing, for publishers would not be happy with me. But since they are making it impossible for some of you to download these books due to territorial rights, and that means that authors are losing money because they can't get royalties on ebooks they don't sell, here's how you do it.

You simply need to change your ip address to confuse those websites like Amazon. Google "Change my ip address" to learn how easy it is to do so.

Google "Free US email proxy" to find temporary ip addresses you can use. They only last for a few hours, so you may have to try a few before you find one that works.

And voilà! You may be in Germany, Australia, or South Africa, but to all ends and purposes your internet connection is somewhere in the USA. And you can now download those ebooks that weren't available to you until now...

That done, simply reset the usual settings on your computer. It's too bad that readers should be forced to cheat this way, but SFF authors deserve to be read as far and wide as possible. =)

Can't you just change your Kindle location in the country settings on the manage your kindle page of Amazon? I live in Japan and often change this back and forth between the US and Japan to get ebooks. Changed to US to get Black Prism and then back to Japan to get Heirs of the Blade.
