Kindle Indiependence eBook of the Day

The Kindle Indiependence eBook of the day is eBully by Dave Conifer.


Vice Principal Steve Lukather is desperate. Just like last year, an internet bully is terrorizing one of his students at Lakeland Middle School. Last time it ended badly when the victim was found with two slashed wrists after an attempted suicide. This year, after a series of nasty computer messages and an indiscreet photograph of Carly Gillette spread through the student body Lukather knows it's happening again. This time he's determined to stop the bully in his tracks before Gillette ends up reaching for a razor blade.

Thirteen-year-old Scott Halifax has a juvy rap sheet that could peel wallpaper but he's just what Lukather needs -- a street-smart, tech-savvy kid with no roots. Lukather makes a deal with Halifax: go undercover as a student at Lakeland and nail the bully in return for a ticket out of the County Detention Center and a clean slate.

Once he's in at Lakeland Halifax teams up with Tom Seidel, the nerdy kid that everyone loves to hate. It isn't long before Scott, Tom and Carly’s best friend Lisa are working together. It takes a lot of hard work, some sly computer sleuthing and a little dumb luck before they expose the bully. And it’s the last person that anybody would have suspected.

eBully draws on recent headlines about cyber-bullying, including the need to update harassment and stalking laws to reflect new technologies.

eBook of the Day #1:

The Kindle Indiependence Book of the day is Uncommon Magic by Michelle Scott.


In Mira Meadowmarsh’s world, Magicians have complete control over ordinary people like herself. Magicians rule with iron fists, levying taxes, seizing property, and meting out harsh punishment to those who break the rules. But while the un-magical commons cannot defend themselves against the Magician’s magic, there is one thing that Magicians fear: inventions. So when rumors spread that the un-magical are building machines and planning an uprising, the Magicians retaliate with even harsher laws.

At first, all of this means nothing to Mira who doesn’t give a fig about politics. She’s in love, and life is sweet. But when she discovers that her brother is an inventor who’s suddenly the most wanted man in the country and that the boy she loves, her companion since childhood, is really a Magician, Mira finds herself in the middle of a brewing revolution.

A special thanks to Sybil Nelson

A special thanks to Sybil Nelson, who came up with the idea for the Kindle Indiependence Contest.
Sybil is the author of Priscilla the Great, a Middle Grade novel available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com for 99 cents to $2.99, depending on vendor.  Priscilla currently has a 5 star average on both vendors.  If you have already entered the KindeIndiependence contest, checking out her book (or any of the participating eBooks) and writing an honest review on Amazon.com or Goodreads will get you up to 20 extra entries in the contest!

You can find Priscilla the Great here:

Amazon.com


Book Description:

If you think your middle school years are awkward and traumatic, try going through them with fire shooting out of your fingers!

Hey, I’m Priscilla and all I want is to be a normal seventh grader. That’s hard enough with an older brother annoyingly obsessed with Christina Aguilera, mischievous baby twin brothers who could scare the sin off of Satan, and parents more puzzling than a Rubik’s cube in the Bermuda triangle.

But when psycho, genetically enhanced assassins start trying to kill me and my family, being normal is downright impossible.
