Welcome to this week’s Free Book Friday, wherein we give you the best titles in indie publishing for the low low price of nothing. Congrats to last week’s winner Marla for getting a free copy of Awkward Two from Awkward Press.
This week, we are giving away a copy of Daddy’s by Lindsay Hunter. You ever fed yourself something bad? Like a candied rattlesnake, or a couple fingers of antifreeze? Nope? You seen what it done to other people? Like while they’re flopping around on the floor you’re thinking about how they’re fighting to live. Like while they’re dying they never looked so alive? That’s what Daddy’s is like. In this collection of toxic southern gothics, packaged as a bait box of temptation, Lindsay Hunter offers an exploration not of the human heart but of the spine; mixing sex, violence and love into a harrowing, head-spinning read that’ll push you a little further toward flopping. You can print out your own mini-book featuring “Peggy’s Brother,” a story from Daddy’s, here.
This week’s Free Book Friday is sponsored by Featherproof Books. Featherproof Books is an indie publisher dedicated to doing whatever they want. This might take the form of publishing an idiosyncratic novel, design book, or something in between. They love paper, but they’re not afraid of computers. Their free downloadable mini-books are an invitation to all ten fingers to take part in the book-making process. They also have an experiment in attention span: the TripleQuick Fiction iPhone app. No matter the medium, they see their authors as creative partners involved in every step of publication. They make their own fun.
