Apparently it's time for another batch of 1st-in-series/tie-in introductory titles free courtesy of publisher Kensington, from their eponymous, eKensington, and Lyrical Press imprints.
This time, we've a broader variety of stuff ranging from short story to full novel-length, with a contemporary Gothic suspense, a YA LGBT coming-of-age story, some more YA coming-of-age in the contemporary dealing-with-substance-abuse-and-loss-issues-with-romantic-elements category, and some regular category romances (including a Vancouver-set hockey sports one) as well. (And a true crime glitch freebie bonus just for iTunes Canada account-holders, it seems).
These seem to be mostly available in multiple stores and regions worldwide, so hopefully if something catches your interest, you'll be able to pick it up without having to do much in the way of geo-restriction hoop-jumping. As a reminder, most of the previous batch of Kensington romance-oriented freebies
are still free in multiple venues as well.
And this has been the (late!) selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.
Because not only is it nice to see Kensington still keeping up the regular introductory promotions, it's also great to see them expanding the variety available, as well, and I hope they continue to do so. :2thumbsup
