Smashwords – Summer Sale Ends Soon!

Well, July is almost over, so I thought I’d put out a reminder that the Smashwords Summer Sale offer on my books expires at the end of the month…

All my books are on 50% discount for the entire month of July.  Some, of course, are already free, and anything currently retailing at 99 cents will also be free after the discount.

HOW do I take advantage of this fabulous offer?

First, visit  my Smashwords Author Page to check out the selection of books – there’s Cycling Widows, The Jacaranda Trail, SHADES and Campervan Capers, as well as a couple of short freebies adapted from the books: The Welsh Leek Conspiracy and The Intrepid Adventures of Ralph Ingleton.

To get the books at the reduced rate, just do the following:

  • Log into Smashwords
  • Choose a book you like & ‘purchase’ it
  • At the checkout, enter code: SSW50

The discount expires at one minute to midnight on July 31 (Pacific time).  And, as always, my books are available in a variety of digital formats – for eReaders and home printing.

While you’re there, why not check out what other authors have to offer, too?  Click to visit the Smashwords Summer Sale catalogue page, where there’s a list of books entered into the promotion.

I hope you find something that will appeal!

Happy reading!

PS A few of my (not-so-computer-savvy) friends have mentioned teething troubles downloading my books.  It turned out that they didn’t realise you have to sign up for a Smashwords account before downloading.  Unfortunately, this is the norm nowadays.  The good news is, once you have an account set up, you can browse Smashwords and download lots of other stuff (free & paying) as well – not only my own books!  Apologies if you’ve had any problems yourself!

Did you catch the NEWS about CAMPERVAN CAPERS 2…?

Earlier in the month, I blogged about the release of Campervan Capers 2

In case you missed the news, this adaptation of the Campervan Capers blog entries from 2011 has now been published as a free handy eBook, courtesy of Smashwords.

So if you fancy reading last year’s blogs on your eReader or want to print any of them at home, click on the link to download the book for free.


I’ve been working at getting my books ‘out there’ in a variety of other formats…  More info is on its way!
