Categories: Amazon, Indie Book Collective, Promotion

What a wonderful day it is!

No, not because it is Groundhog’s Day (and we have already seen way too many references to the Bill Murray movie of the same name), but because today is the start of the Indie Book Collective’s Free Par-Tay event. This event has gathered dozens of highly-rated, high-quality indie books, put them all in one, well-organized place, and made it very easy for readers to load up their Kindles (or smart phones with Kindle app, or computers with Kindle app… you get the idea).

The easiest part for readers? Every single one of these books are free for the next two or three days. Some of these books have reached Top 100 paid status. Some are Top 5 or Top 10 books in their categories. This is not a collection of johnny-come-lately books. They are well-written, good books.

Portmanteau Press LLC is proud to contribute two of our current titles to the Free Par-Tay pool: Jeremy Rodden’s young adult adventure novella about the origin of his anti-hero of Animetown (Toonopolis Short: Anchihiiroo) and our collection of short, nonfiction essays by stay-at-home dads (The Myth of Mr. Mom).

Go. Download them now. Tell your friends. Share the free and enjoy!

Kindle Lending Library – Portmanteau Press Books Available

I have a wonderful announcement to make regarding the new Amazon Kindle Lending Library ( and our books.

As of today, all three currently published Portmanteau Press books (Toonopolis: Gemini, Toonopolis Short: Anchihiiroo, and The Myth of Mr. Mom) have been selected to participate in this program.  This means that any reader with a Kindle and an Amazon Prime membership can now borrow these books (digitally) for free, just like he or she would be able to do at a public library with a print book.  We are excited to be a part of this program and expand our readership to a whole new crop of readers.

It is also important to note that these three titles will have a 90-day exclusivity with Amazon for eBook sales.  Due to this, they will be removed from other retailer sites (Smashwords,, etc.) for the duration of this 90 days.  Should you prefer to obtain eBooks from these sites, you should grab these titles now before they are pulled until March.

This exclusivity, however, only pertains to the digital version of these titles.  All print versions of the books are available through the same sales channels through which they were always available.

Thanks for reading!  Be on the lookout for an upcoming post on Portmanteau Press’s involvement in two Indie Book Collective events (the Indie Book Blowout from December 12-24 and Bestseller For A Day on January 6th)!
