Although I’ve been writing in one form or another for years now, this is the first time I’ve actually taken time out to fully focus on my writing projects.  And now that I’ve just passed the first year mark, I thought it was time for celebration.

According to Wikipedia, a first anniversary gift (in traditional America, at least) should be paper.  In England, where I currently live, it’s cotton.  The second anniversary is where the tables turn, because in America, it’s cotton; and in England, it’s paper.  Hmm…  Either way, it seems quite fitting for a writer celebrating their first year wedded to their work – even though paper seems to be taking a back seat to computer technology these days.

In any case, to celebrate my ‘first anniversary’, I’m offering free downloads of all my eBooks for a whole week – that’s from now until Sunday 4th December.

How to Get your Free Download Offer…

  • Click on a book title (link) below;
  • Log onto Smashwords; and
  • Enter the ‘purchase code’ (in brackets for each book below)
  • Enjoy the book!

In case you’re unfamiliar with my work, here are the titles to choose from:

  • CYCLING WIDOWS – Lifting the Veil on Living with an Obsessive Cyclist (GW99M)
  • THE JACARANDA TRAIL – A Journey of Discovery Down Under (DN99C)
  • SHADES – A Collection of Short Fictional Works (PZ36E)

There’s more info on each book on the Smashwords website.  And if you enjoy the book, why not submit a quick review to help others decide if they’d like to sample or buy the book?

In case you’re wondering, I am aware of the irony of celebrating a paper anniversary with eBooks!  So just to let you know, the downloads are available in printable formats – as well as for most eReaders – for those of you (like me) to prefer to read from a sheet of processed woodpulp.

As I end this post, I pause to wonder if anniversary gifts will end up changing with the times – maybe one day spouses will be exchanging the latest chips and SIM cards instead of ‘old-fashioned’ paper.  For the time being though, paper is here to stay, so maybe I’ll go out and buy myself a new notepad to scribble down all my inspired writings
