Cookies & Milk: Today's Free App, Plus BOTD: Lessons

The big day is here! We'll be announcing which one of our 8356 entries will be walking away with a new Kindle Fire! There's something we've noticed over the duration of the contest that's actually really touching. So many happy Fire owners were really hoping to win a Fire so they could give it to someone they know. That's when you know a device is great, when people who love it want to give it to other people. We'll see if it works out that way later today, but first don't miss out on our excellent free app and book of the day!

Do you know what a drabble is? If you don't it's about time you found out. We've got the inventor of drabbles, Michael Crane, and the first in his series of Lessons books, which are filled with little 100 word bites of fiction that'll get under your skin and inside your head. A touch of dark humor, a dash of horror, sprinkle on silliness. Be sure to check this out because you've probably never read anything like this!

Name: Lessons (and other morbid drabbles)
Rating: 4.5 stars over 20 reviews
Price: 0.99
Description: A man learns a painful and valuable lesson... one finger at a time.
An old couple bickers over disgusting leftovers.
Kids go ignored when they tell their parents about the horrors that lurk in their bedrooms, until it's too late...

LESSONS AND OTHER MORBID DRABBLES is a collection of 25 100-word shorts that range from darkly comic to downright terrifying and wrong. Some shorts feature ghouls and monsters while others are simply about people behaving very, very badly. Which is scarier? Find out in this sick and twisted collection.

They may only be a few words long, but that doesn't lessen the bloodshed any...

Reviews: "It takes talent to engage a reader in a hundred words, and then to shock her. Each of Michael Crane's drabbles did just that. Each story is a nugget of unexpected evil. Mr. Crane's style is easy and enjoyable, journeying the reader into a false sense of security and then, bam! I look forward to the next collection of drabbles from this gifted author."
