As a reader I love freebies, and as a writer I love giving my readers freebies! Check out some of the awesome bonus content you can find from the Amaranthine Universe.

Note: Unlike other retailers, Amazon gets the final say in all prices, meaning a story or book *meant* to be free is NOT free, even though the author intended it to be. Also books that were free may become un-free without notice. Always check the price before buying. Readers can download kindle compatible files from Smashwords - where they allow the author to set their price - and manually put them on their kindles.

Can he figure out how to pop the question in this “different time”, or will it be a disaster? Only available to Newsletter Subscribers and participants in The Great Typo Hunt

Road to Darkness - The companion short story for Patrick's Story: Brothers of Darkness.

But, after getting lost, there's no way they can make it on time - and no way they'll pick anyone up - until they find two boys stranded on the side of the road. Unfortunately for them, the guys aren't what they seem, and the girls get a lot less "fun" than they bargained for. (Not available on Amazon)
