The last of my free book offers has finished. The response has been very good. Even Eugenica, a book that I have historically found difficult to convince readers to have a look at, enjoyed a large number of downloads. Next, comes the boring bit; waiting for people to read the books and, hopefully, post a … Continue reading The last of my free book offers has finished
It was not a surprise that so many people took advantage of my free book giveaway, certainly in respect of the historical fiction novels. Those books have always proved popular. The big surprise though is Eugenica. I have always found it difficult to get this book a readership, but this week has gone very well. … Continue reading Eugenica – The Challenging Book
If anyone has been following my blog recently then they will know that I have been giving my books away for free recently. Thanks to a glitch at Kindle Direct Publishing I had to start with Mesozoic although I was trying to run my books in order. Only a small gripe though. I followed my … Continue reading Free Books, Free Marketing!
After writing about the subject of giving my work away for free I have decided to do that very thing this week. Have I changed my mind? No, not exactly.

As I am still waiting to make it big, however, then there seems to be no real … Continue reading Getting Ready for the Big Launch
Seeing as the summer holidays have arrived, even though it does not look like it here in England, I thought that I might offer you a free book to take with you on your vacation, whether that be to somewhere exotic or just in the comfort of your own home. ‘Mesozoic’ is a technological thriller … Continue reading Do You Fancy a Free eBook for the Summer Holidays?
In yet another attempt to increase my readership and, hopefully, garner a few more honest reviews, I am offering all of my eBooks for free download from 2nd to the 6th October through Amazon. If you wish to find out if my books, which have been the primary subject of this blog since I started it, have … Continue reading What it is to be Free!
Eugenica appears to be a difficult book to get people to interested in. I suppose the themes of the book, the persecution of the disabled for example, are not that attractive. I can understand that there is nothing attractive either about the issue or the nature of disability. Nevertheless, wrapped around that theme is a … Continue reading In Need of Reviews
