Bite Me. There, I’ve said it.
And the reason I’ve said it is that it is the title of the latest free offering in the Kindle Store, a teen novel whose protagonist Val Shapiro “is just your ordinary, part-demon, teenaged vampire hunter with a Texas drawl.” And it should be no surprise that the author, whose parents may or may not have named her Parker Blue, has a sequel, Try Me, for sale for $9.99 in the Kindle Store.
Aside to parents who wonder if the you should somehow content-block a book entitled Bite Me from your teens: sorry, but get over it. As the very proud dad of two daughters who have turned out wonderfully, I learned a long time ago that (1) you’ll lose the war if you try to win a lot of battles by trying to draw pre-emptive lines too restrictively in the sand; and (2) if you think you are protecting your 14-year old from anything real by keeping her nose out of books like Bite Me, chances are good that you have a lot to learn about what’s really going on in her life.
The best way to find out about these free listings right away, when they occur, is to subscribe to the Kindle edition of Kindle Nation Daily, which pushes Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alerts directly to your Kindle Home screen 24/7. And in the case of many free listings that disappear within a matter of hours or days, “right away” is often just in time.
