Better than cheap – FREE!

Last week, I decided to offer all four books for the bargain price of 99p/99c.

It was a bit of an experiment – and now I’d like to take that experiment another step further.

Starting NOW until the end of May, you can actually get all books for free. There’s only a very small catch:

Amazon doesn’t allow me to set a zero price, and I can’t distribute to Nook etc for anything less than 99c. The only way to give these books away is to offer a Coupon which can only be redeemed at It’s not the end of the world, obviously, but it’s a little more tricky as you’ll have to download the files from Smashwords then copy them via the USB cable to your ereader.

Hopefully, though, that’s not too tricky. The plus side is that Smashwords offers the books in a large variety of formats, so you should have no trouble finding a format that suits you.

You’ll need to go here to download the books:


And you’ll need these coupon codes:

The Long Second: WP88S

Broken: JV87C

Chronostasis: CU95E

Playing Adam’s Game: YS34Q

I ask for only 2 things in return. Firstly: spread the word – tell your friends! Secondly: write a review – preferably on Amazon but, really, anywhere (if  you do review it, please let me know!)

EDIT. I just wanted to clarify one thing: When I ask that you post a review, I want you to post an honest review. If you love the book(s), then that’s great and I’d be delighted if you post a good review. On the other hand, if they leave you feeling “Meh!” then by all means post that too (it’d be good if you could put your finger on why you feel that, though). So, yes, please review – but be honest. Thanks.

Grab a bargain

For a limited time – I haven’t yet decided how long that will be – I’ve reduced the price of all four books on Amazon Kindle to 99p/99c

Why? Because it was never about the money – I get a far bigger kick from knowing that somebody is reading (and, hopefully, enjoying) the books than I ever do when looking at the royalty payments.

Of course, if I were selling thousands and thousands of books then I might feel differently!

Regardless, wherever you are, you should be able to get them from Amazon for what is, frankly, silly money when you consider how much time and effort goes into a book – and I mean any book, not just mine.

So, splash out, grab a bargain with my compliments. And tell the world.

(I’m sure you know where to get them but here are the links anyway: Amazon UK, Amazon USA, Amazon Canada)
