October: No Tricks, All Treat...
For the entire month of October, I'm making the electronic version of my collection of short stories, Somewhere to Start From, available free of charge.
If you're not one of the Talkbackers who've already got a copy, now's your chance! The ebook features 22 short stories, covering a wide range of themes and styles, many of which have been published, won prizes, or been shortlisted for various competitions, including Writers' Forum, The Guardian, and the James White Award (see the acknowledgements page for full details). Have a look at http://www.lies-ink.blogspot.co.uk/p/somewhere-to-start-from.html if you'd like more information.
To get a copy, head over to Smashwords ( http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/262944 ) and download whichever format works for your ereader, or a PDF if you want to read it on your computer. The promo coupon code to use is BB82C.
Thanks for your time, and if you do download the book, I hope you enjoy it!
N.B. I wasn't sure how to get the .mobi file onto a Kindle, so I've just tested it using the Kindle app on my Samsung tablet. It's a piece of cake - you just download the file, then email it to your Kindle's email address (I found mine under the 'Settings' menu of the app). There's a short delay, but then it pops up alongside all your other books.
Please let me know if you have any problems.
