50 Author Crime Fiction Giveaway

crime series books

Fifty authors of crime fiction have united to give away the first book in their series. You are invited to download all of them or select the ones you like.

Why give away books?

The concept is similar to the one used by drug dealers–give away the first sample and the addict will come back for more. Admit it, you are a reading addict. You’d rather dive into a book than watch television. Readers enjoy using their imaginations.

Readers have to bring something to the reading experience. Readers enjoy seeing the world through new perspectives. Readers thrive on vicariously living dangerously and exploring strange new places.

Welcome to the worlds of 50 crime authors. Let us entertain you.

Please let us know what you think of our creations by posting reviews on social media, Amazon, Goodreads.com, BookBub, and wherever else you tell others about what you’ve read.

You will be added to our fan newsletters, to be notified of future giveaways and new releases and you may unsubscribe at any time.

From all of us who labor to bring you exciting stories, thank you!

North of the Killing Hand is the prequel, the first book by story chronology in the Compass Crimes, my crime fiction series. This is my contribution to the giveaway.

Each book features a woman whose life has been overtuned by a crime and the story is what she does to get justice. If you like crime without gore, try this book.

Women in Thrillers

Twenty-one authors of thrillers that feature heroines are sharing a giveaway. If you like thrillers, suspense, and crime fiction with strong women in them, then click on the link below to download the ones you want. One? All 21? It’s up to you.

Why do authors give away books? To help readers find them. To get reviews, yes, even a negative review, because new authors don’t have the name recognition of the giants in the genre.

So check out the list and maybe you’ll find your next new favorite author. One last beach read for the summer, one last thrill…

My book South of Justice is part of this giveaway because, like my other books, it features a strong heroine. I write about strong women on purpose. To learn why I feature strong women, check out my blog on it:

Free Christian Mystery, Suspense, and Thriller Books

BookFunnel Christian giveaway

Eleven best-sellling authors have teamed up to celebrate summer with giveaways of books! Why would authors giveaway books?

I’m glad you asked. The answer is three-fold.

One

Authors want readers to discover their work and giveaways encourage readers to read books by authors they might not have heard of yet. The theory is similar to what drug dealers use–the first one’s free. Once a reader is hooked by the fresh voice, memorable characters, and stunning storytelling, the reader will buy other works by that author. Remember the last time you found a book you loved so much you bought everything you could find by that author?

Reading addiction is real.

Two

Authors giveaway books to get reviews. Sure, authors can pay for reviews, but genuine, heart-felt reviews are the best advertising. It’s also called word-of-mouth advertising. Your friends and family know how much you love reading, so they look to you when they want to know what’s worth reading.

Your review on Amazon, Goodreads, BookBub, or other sites help more readers discover new voices in fiction. Goodreads is like Facebook, but for book lovers.

Your social media post naming an author and title of a book helps your friends and family discover new voices in fiction. Posting the cover image is always a plus!

Three

Authors giveaway books is to build their newsletter outreach. If you like the book, you will be notified when the next book by this author comes out. Some authors ask readers to help with choosing cover art or naming characters. You can unsubscribe to a newsletter at any time. Newsletters are also used to announce other giveaways and ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) which are given to reviewer/bloggers and select fans.

So, if you’ve been searching for mysteries, suspense, and thrillers without vulgar language or erotica–download one or all of the books offered by these Christian authors.
