A fantasy starts this week’s Free Book Friday, and this one’s full of mermaids. Who doesn’t like a mermaid? Well, anyone likely to be killed by one, I guess. Happy Free Book Friday.
Rising by Holly Kelly. Free from Smashwords.com
In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea—humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou—the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean—is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. But first there’s one small thing he needs to do… kill a beautiful young woman in a wheelchair.
It’s still Free Book Friday, and if you can’t laugh at the week that just took the tinsel from your branches, then at least you can laugh at this book. And it occurs to me that’s a seasonal reference, quite out of season. Well, no matter, this one looks funny, and you can’t beat free.
Bubba and the Dead Woman by C.L. Bevill. FREE from Smashwords.com

His dog likes to bite people too much. And he’s got to find out who really did it before the sheriff throws him in jail…again.
We can dream of spring, right? Even if, right now, it’s a fantasy? Because it has to arrive eventually. I think.

Dead(ish), Book 1 by Naomi Kramer. FREE from Smashwords.com
Linda’s had a bad day. First, her boyfriend killed her. Then she woke up, still on this boring plane of existence, and with an odd obsession about her missing body. Mike won’t tell her what he did with her body and she can’t find the stupid thing herself. There’s only one thing she can do – torment the bastard until he coughs up the information.

Zombie Nights by Tom Lichtenberg. FREE from Smashwords.com
Being a zombie, not so easy. That could have been Dave Connor’s six word memoir. “At first he couldn’t remember how he’d ended up in that shallow grave; he just knew it was hell to claw his way out, and that the taste of its dirt would remain in his mouth for the rest of his time on this earth” … Expect the unexpected in this existential resurrection thriller.
So every Friday, A Bit to Read will feature free books. And by “free books,” I mean books that were free at the time I selected them; like the weather, traffic lights and our minds, these things are subject to change. Happy Free Book Friday! I think it calls for a little romance.
