I got on the site for about 7 minutes very early this morning. It's been down ever since. I'm teased as there were some authors I like and I wanted to see which ones they were offering up, but can't access it at all.

Yeap, same here. I was on the site around 3:30am and decided to go back later to download the books I wanted. Can't get them now. Maybe the books will still be available at 3am tomorrow?

Every time I try, I can't even get to the site.

There is a duplicate thread in CMT and someone figured out the books are all downloadable from Amazon.

Thanks Nancy! 

I saw your post after I downloaded the books I was interested in because the site is working now.

i guess there were too many readers trying to access the site yesterday.

Just checked this morning, and the site says they're staying open an extra day because of the crashes. But to check each book before download because not all authors could keep their books free.
