Yes, it's true. Our entire current e-book catalogue is free from Ash Wednesday, 18 February though Holy Thursday, 2 April. No strings attached.

We've heard the skepticsm, the surprise, and the questions, so here are a few answers.
What's the catch? Really, there is none. The books are free. Happy reading.
Why are you doing this? It is the approaching Easter celebration that reminds us of Christ's generosity and love in giving His life for the salvation of souls. We want to share that message with as many readers as possible, regardless of the reader's ability to pay.
Who's paying for it? Pelican Book Group is offering this giveaway as a gift, but we'll be perfectly honest. We're a small company, and there are considerable expenses in this endeavor. But, we believe that everything will work out exactly as God has planned, as long as we act in faith, and trust. So we're trusting! As you browse the site during this giveaway, you'll see a "Donate Now" button. If you would like to partner with us in bringing the message of Christ FREE to those who may otherwise not be able to read a faith-filled novel, please click that "Donate Now" button and help us out with a buck or two or ten...whatever you can afford and feel called to contribute. It isn't mandatory! All the books are really free, no strings attached. But your generosity will be appreciated.
2 Corinthians 9:6-15
Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: “He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.”
The one who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed and increase the harvest of your righteousness.
You are being enriched in every way for all generosity, which through us produces thanksgiving to God, for the administration of this public service is not only supplying the needs of the holy ones but is also overflowing in many acts of thanksgiving to God. Through the evidence of this service, you are glorifying God for your obedient confession of the gospel of Christ and the generosity of your contribution to them and to all others, while in prayer on your behalf they long for you, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
