G. A. Henty Books for Free with Great Covers

I’ve wanted to read some G.A. Henty novels for awhile. I’ve heard they’re an exciting way to learn history. (And, believe me, I have a lot to learn. In some of his subtitles, which are meant to clarify, I don’t even recognize the war he’s referring to.)

But, if you’ve read Inklings, you know I’m a little OCD. Okay, a lot. And I hate uploading ebooks to my library when they look like this—bleh:


These covers give me the willies. It’s basically impossible for me to read a book like that. I know, I know. I’m an author. I should be the last person to judge a book by its cover. But I can’t help it. And I do, all the time.

So I recently went through my ebook library and updated the covers for many of the ugly ones. I came across some awesome artwork from some amazing artists. Here’s one of my faves, even though I didn’t end up using it for a cover:

But the point of this whole post is that I designed one cover too, because I couldn’t find a good one online. It’s for a book by G.A. Henty called UNDER DRAKE’S FLAG. And now I want to pass the ECKSDOT EDITION on to you (yes, Ecksdot also happens to be the name of my publishing company, in case you didn’t know, although I feel like I should call it a “publishing company,” with quotes, since it’s mostly just a formality). 

Anyways, here’s the new cover:

And here are the download links for the full ebook, which is FREE!
  • EPUB (for Google Books and others)
  • MOBI (for Kindle)

Let me know what you think.

Also, if there’s a public domain book that you love that needs a really awesome cover, let me know and I’ll add it to the list. No guarantees I’ll get to is soon. But if you pick one I like too, it will probably be sooner than later.

And, finally, I won’t always be posting these free ebooks on my blog. If you never want to miss one, make sure to sign up for The INFORMANT:
