The indie book world is so vast that I’m constantly stumbling across bestsellers I’ve never heard of before. I had a similar discussion with a bookish friend the other day: we hardly read traditionally published books anymore, because the variety and quantity just isn’t there. I love me a good trad book every so often, but they’re not going to fill the holes they leave by waiting two years between sequels.
Lindsey Sparks isn’t an author I’m familiar with even though she writes in my genre and is clearly quite popular what with all the reviews on her books. So, I’ve grabbed one of her first in series urban fantasy freebies and want to share it with you:
“The gods are gone. Her brother is missing. One retired assassin must confront her past to save his future…
Immortal Kat Dubois has traded in her sword for a flask. Hard drinking helps ease the grisly memories of her former trade: an assassin of immortals. She’s perfectly content to spend eternity in her Seattle tattoo parlor…until the mysterious disappearance of her brother finally brings her out of retirement.
With a charmed deck of tarot cards and her trusty sword, Kat sets off to track down her brother and save his soul. A wicked corporation and a laundry list of old rivals stand in the way of her quest. For someone with an eternity to live, Kat’s chances of unraveling the mystery become less likely with each passing second…”

If this sounds like your cup of tea, here’s the link. As ever, this may only be free for a short time – but I’d place a wager that it’s a permafreebie first in series, so chances are good that it’ll be free for ages. Enjoy!
