CYCLING WIDOWS speeds through the 100 Barrier! Celebrate with a FREEBIE!

After living with my cycling-crazed partner (Steve) for a number of years, I decided to ‘get my own back’ last year and write a short satirical book which lifted the veil on the obsessive world of cycling.

The result was Cycling Widows and it was the first piece of writing I released as an eBook with Smashwords.

Since its release in September 2011, it’s had over 100 downloads.  So I’ve decided to celebrate my mini-triumph by offering the book for free to blog readers.

The book is principally aimed at fanatical cyclists and their long-suffering Cycling Widow spouses.  It’s written with tongue firmly in cheek, so if you love sports humour in general, it’s sure to appeal, too.

The offer is open for one week only, so get tapping those keys and download the book for free as follows:

  • Log onto Smashwords
  • Enter code LC49S (expires Sun 3 June 2012)
  • Download in various formats – for eReaders like the Kindle iPad; for screen reading; or for home printing.

If you enjoy the book, why not submit a quick review once you’ve read it?  Or pass on the link to friends?  As always, 30% of Cycling Widows will be available to sample for free once the offer is over.

If you’d like to hear about future offers on all my works, why not subscribe to this blog (just sign up in the panel on the right)…  or join me on Facebook… there’s a page for Foley’s Forum (for all my work) & a page for each of my books: Cycling Widows, Campervan Capers, The Jacaranda Trail, and SHADES…  Just click ‘LIKE’ on any of those pages to get updates in your newsfeed.

Alternatively, check out my other books, short stories, articles & photography on the Foley’s Forum website, where there’s plenty more info & stuff that’s free to view.

And there’s more…

My partner, Steve, is so obsessed with cycling that we have a special section on our Campervan Capers blog which documents some of his escapades whilst we’re out & about on our travels.  So if you love cycling, why not check out Steve’s Cycle Shorts?
