Free Books & Stories From Christa Kinde!

Byways, for the websiteI am often invited to review novels, but usually I decline because most novels are far, far too predictable. Change the name and setting and the stories all end up being the same - girl loses the man she loves, she is sad, she meets another man and ultimately after hardship they fall in love and get married - and live happily ever after. Same story, different names. You can read the first chapter and know how the book will end, so I tend not to read very many fiction books.

However; I love reading stories by Christa Kinde. Her books are anything but predictable! Her characters are unique and the stories engage and delight! So, when Christa emailed me yesterday about an opportunity to get two of her books for Free, I had to share it with you!

Today, June 30, 2015 through Friday, July 3, 2015 you can get the first two books in the Byways series as ebooks for Free! What is the "Byways" series, you ask? Well . . . 

Ewan can take the form of an elk.
Zane shape-shifts into a wolf.
Ganix can Change into a raccoon.

But it will take more than magical bloodlines to win this race.
The Race. Ian Johns is the founder of the postal system in the land of Liberty. Twice widowed, he has three sons, all half-brothers, and the boys don’t get along. In order to help them bond, Ian plans a tour of the country in the hopes that travel will bring them closer together. But somehow, the plan is twisted around, and the trip becomes a race.
The Brothers. When CJ dreamed up this epic cross-country adventure, Ian’s sons started out as living pictures of three constitutional ideals—”life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Ewan is a protector by nature. He takes care of the young lives in his keeping. Zane values his independence above all else. And Ganix just wants to have fun.
This is a series which is perfect as read-together books for parents/grandparents to enjoy with their children/grandchildren and since you can begin the series for Free . . . it makes a great book series to surprise the children in your life with on a rainy day this Summer or on your next sleep-over!

And, I must also let you know about Christa's website where you will find more of her stories for Free! Christa has such an incredible imagination and she shares it with us through the stories she writes. One such story is Deuce . . . so far there are 17 chapters on her blog for you to enjoy; and believe me you are certain to enjoy them! Each Friday she adds another chapter . . . I LOVE Fridays, and wish the rest of the week would pass more quickly, so I can enjoy the next chapter!!! The very first chapter of Deuce had me - I LOVE this story and can not wait to see what happens next! If only it were Friday!!!
Galleries of Stone_Deuce by C. J. MilbrandtStory Summary: A single misstep during a test of skill could have cost Ulrica Rakefang all her highborn pride. Instead, it lands her at the mercy of a boy who’s savvy enough to turn events to his advantage. But Aurelius Harrow’s ambitions fall prey to Ulrica’s vicious wit and girlish whims. Playful rivalry gives way to an exhilarating alliance. Formal hunts. Lavish dances. Rebellious affection. The audacious merchant’s son gladly courts danger in order to keep his childhood promise … and claim his prize.
 And if all this were not enough, Christa shares more of her stories on her other blog! Check out Sage & Song . . .
