Is your TBR pile shrinking? Do you need to start a virtual TBR pile? This is the week to stock up. There are probably thousands of free or cheap ebooks available all over the net this week, but Smashwords is offering a bunch of freebies and books with reduced prices in one convenient location.

If you like dark fiction with a psychological twist, this is your chance to get acquainted with one of my favorite writers, Dusk Peterson. He’s offering The Waterman Omnibus, a 100,000 word collection of related stories, for $1.50. The coupon code is RAE50.
The Waterman Omnibus is “a historical fantasy series and retrofuture series inspired by the Chesapeake Bay oyster wars, boarding school rivalries in the 1910s, and 1960s visions of things to come.”
Also on sale this week is my all time favorite from Dusk, The Eternal Dungeon Omnibus. At 440,000-words for four novels, lovers of really dark fiction will have something to hook them solidly and ruin whatever plans they had for the next few days. The coupon code for the $2.50 sale price is RAE75.
