Freebie Fiction Friday - Get 'em while they're hot!

Well, if it's Friday, then that must been it's time for Freebie Fiction Friday!

Every Friday I take the initiative to search through thew newly free titles on Amazon, and to identify those that might be of interest to trans* readers, fans, and lovers. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, and covert it (if need be) with Calibre. I can tell you I do most of my reading on my iPad, using Kindle for iPad, and it works beautifully.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, though, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

A great selection this week of reads for the long weekend, with some fantastic variety:

Just Business by DK Masters

In another fun, clever tale of magical gender transformation from the folks at TG World BooksDK Masters casts a gypsy spell on a Hollywood executive in Just Business.

When the rumor mill suggests that the studio's current CEO (a sexist, racist, homophobic old man) is retiring, there are really only two candidates for his replacement. Determine to fixed the odds in his favor, Michael spends several million dollars to have his rival, Alex, transformed into a woman. The transformation here is set up nicely, with Michael and the old gypsy negotiating everything from the speed of the transformation, to how people will view the emerging woman, to what memories Alex will retain, to whether it will be irreversible.

It takes a while for the actual transformation to begin, allowing Masters to play with feelings of guilt, remorse, and fear on the part of Michael. Once they do, Masters also does a nice job of describing not just the physical and emotional changes, but the other implications as well. The ending is a bit rushed, and there's a potential twist that I expected to be exploited in a completely different way, but it's a fun story with a sexy ending that delivers on the premise.
