Download Free Books Legally (Authors Against Pirating)

Most authors know that our books are going to be pirated eventually no matter what.

This can hurt both the author and the reader. If you're downloading pirated books, you run the risk of having your personal information stolen (if you visit the wrong web-site) or getting a virus that destroys your computer, even if the web-site seems safe to you. The copies you get might be messed up and hard to read and if they have a virus in them, they could destroy those e-book devices or your phone, which you paid so much money to purchase.

As authors, those pirated books never amount to anything for us. Most of us don't make enough money from our writing to live off of it. And most pirates don't download our books and leave reviews for them on sites afterwards, which can actually help us sell more books later.

I get it. Sometimes you just don't have the money to buy books.

But I want you to realize that this doesn't mean you have to pirate books. Many authors offer their books for free all the time. Most of us run promotions occasionally where we offer paid books for free for a short period of time. There's also a lot of us who have given books away for free to people on goodreads and other sites in exchange for reviews.

When you download the books legally this way, it's totally safe. It often boosts our numbers once the free promotion is over (which allows us to sell more books later) and it allows you to leave reviews (the more reviews a book has, the higher it will probably sell.)

There are several web-sites you can join the newsletter of that will give you links to books that are available for free for a short period of time, including sites like bookbub. You can also join author's mailing lists, like mine here: http://www.ebblack.com/free-books.html And we will always send out newsletters whenever our books are available for cheap or free.

And in the mean time, I am part of a blog tour where a bunch of authors are offering their books for free, either permanently or temporarily. Below are the dates when the books are available for free, the sites you can download them from, and some information about each one. Visit my blog every day until May 30th to get all of the books.

So have fun and enjoy reading!



Thanks to Author Maegan Provan for organizing this tour.
