The Cycling Widows Survival GuideAfter teasing you with a couple of Sneak Peeks, the day has finally arrived when you get to read the rest of my free ebook, The Cycling Widow’s Survival Guide.

As you’ll know if you’ve been tuning in lately, the book features a Revenge Toolkit and an Agony Aunt column. Why not check out the blurb below, and if it appeals, click to download the book on Smashwords?

By the way, Smashwords offers formats for just about every eReader, and you can also download the book to read on your computer screen or to print off at home.

A free ‘lifeline’ ebook

If you’re a Cycling Widow, desperately wondering
How to survive living with an obsessive cyclist –
Fear not! Here are your answers!

From the author of Cycling Widows comes this equally-satirical Survival Guide, designed with both the new & seasoned Cycling Widow in mind. Incorporating a handy Revenge Toolkit and dedicated Agony Aunt column, it’s full of coping mechanisms and satisfying tactics to counteract the suffering unwittingly inflicted by a spouse with OCD (Obsessive Cycling Disorder).

The ebook will shortly be available to download at other major outlets such as Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Amazon – the links will appear on the Cycling Widow’s Survival Guide page of my website as the books become available.

Please note that the book won’t be free on Amazon to begin with… Unfortunately, they don’t currently allow authors to set the price of their work as free – the minimum we can set is 99 cents. Rest assured, I’ll be getting in touch with them about this once the book goes live on their site, and I fully expect them to reduce this figure to price-match their competitors – I just don’t know when that will be.

In the meantime, if you can’t wait to get a free download for your Kindle, why not get a copy in Kindle format from Smashwords?

By the way, if you get the Survival Guide, you’ll notice there’s a link at the start of the book to get a free download of bonus material when you sign up to my newsletter.  This is a satirical piece created especially for Cycling Widows called OLD MAN SYNDROME, all about living with (yet) another nightmare cycling affliction.

As mentioned on the blog the other day, when you subscribe to the Pyjama Writer Newsletter, you can download this or indeed an alternative (a light-hearted short story called MORE MONEY THAN SENSE).  If it takes your fancy, just click on the link below to find out more…

Well, I’m currently on the latter stages of my Cycling Widows sequel, so you can look forward to getting a Sneak Peek at that once the proofs are ready. In the meantime, remember you can read chapters of the original Cycling Widows book each week on the blog as part of a new FREEBIE MONDAY offer. Click here to read chapter 1 now or tune in tomorrow to read chapter 2.

I sincerely hope all you Cycling Widows out there enjoy reading the Survival Guide – although I’m sure that a few non-Cycling Widows will get pleasure from it just the same!

See you again tomorrow!
