We try to bring you free ebook downloads everyday at eBookHounds.  Here are a couple of highly rated ebooks, from the Paranormal Romance and Teen and Young Adult categories.  Free today!


The Island (Click Title to Download at Amazon)


‘I walk toward the sea. The endless surface of the water extends to the horizon, whichever way I look. 

Our world is small. We are on our own, and we only have ourselves to depend on. We rely on the Force deep within us, as taught to us by our forefathers. 

If I were to walk westward from here, I would come across a barrier – the Wall. Behind it, there are Fools. At least, that’s what everyone says. 

I have never seen one.’ 

Leia lives on the Island, a world in which children leave their parents to take care of themselves when they are ten years old. Across this Island runs a wall that no one has ever crossed. The Fools living behind it are not amenable to reason – they believe in illusions. That’s what The Book says, the only thing left to the Eastern Islanders by their ancestors. 
But when a strange man washes ashore and Leia meets a Fool face to face, her life will never be the same. Is what she and her friends believe about the Island really true? 

Or is everyone in their world, in fact, a Fool? 



Sweet Magic Song (Click Title to Download at Amazon)


Belle Bittner was sold to the highest bidder when she was just a child, sought for the magic lying dormant in her blood. She grew up as the adopted daughter of a wealthy vampire couple, and serving the child-trafficking Org seemed her only option in life. But Belle has other plans, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her escape, even if it means betraying those who try to help her. 

Desperate to stay free of an evil vampire who means to possess her no matter what, Belle decides she can use the protection of the flirtatious faery named Roon. The two of them flee to the faery realm where Rooney believes he can better protect her. What he doesn’t know is that taking the beautiful siren through the golden door will set off a cataclysm of events that will threaten the fabric of both the human and the faery worlds. 

Separating myth from fact to decipher the truth about her powers could mean the destruction of the new life Belle’s trying so hard to build.

Why Going Free With Your Ebook Still Works

  • Jan 2nd, 2015

There was a time, a long time ago (and yes, I’m using an old grandpa voice here) when giving away free ebooks resulted in a spectacular spike in your sales.  Correspondingly, one made a whole bunch of money.  In the grand scheme of things, this time lasted about as long as a butterfly’s sneeze.  Amazon closed the “loophole,” dropped the value of a free ebook download, and ended the binge.  Thus, began the bemoaning of authors--to no avail.


All is not lost, however.  No, you cannot make a three month’s salary in a few days of a free ebook promotion.   But, one of the things that we continually research is what our subscribers (who we call “pack members”) and more importantly, what our prospective pack members search for when they want a new ebook.  Far and away, some of the most searched terms are for “free ebooks,” “free Kindle ebooks,” and variations of those with some of the most significant categories such as Contemporary Romance, Mysteries, and Thrillers.  


Now, you may say that what people may be searching on the web is not necessarily relevant to you as an author.  After all, you aren’t as focused on driving traffic to your website as we at eBookHounds are.  You would be correct, in part.  It may not be directly relevant, but it absolutely underscores where demand is in the market.  Free still (and always will) draw people in.  


That is a nice segue to another topic for this blog post.  You aren’t using your free ebook promotion to have that ebook come out of the promotion and rocket up the sales charts at Amazon.  That doesn’t happen anymore, even when you have tens of thousands of downloads.  What you need to contemplate using that promotion for is getting your ebooks in front of thousands of readers.  Thousands of readers that otherwise would never had heard of your work.  It should also drive home the point that you need multiple ebooks, in multiple series, if you really want to start making money.  The one hit wonder with a bestselling ebook that then prompts them to write more is almost like a black swan event.  Don’t even consider something like that happening to you.  Instead, focus your efforts on getting 3, 4, and 5 ebooks in a series.  Then, you can capitalize on the number of products on your shelves with a free ebook promotion.


We’re always here to discuss what we find on the “backend” of our own research and promotions for free ebooks.  Contact us anytime at and we’ll be happy to share what we discover on a daily basis!
