cover concept version 2

After a bit of faffing around converting it to a Kindle Friendly format I am pleased to announce that this year’s Christmas story is here for you all to enjoy.

The plan has been to write a Christmas themed short story every year to give away to friends and family. Last year I put out Reindeer Dust which was my first foray into the world of electronic publishing. As usual I’ve opted for a non-traditional Christmas story – this time we have Elves and Zombies running amuck at the North Pole with typically gruesome consequences. Don’t worry though, it’s all a bit tongue in cheek – think more Shaun of the Dead than Walking Dead.

As usua, in keeping in the spirit of the season, I am giving it away for free. The story went live in the Kindle Store today but from tomorrow you will be able to download it for zilch. The promotion will last until Saturday the 22nd as I can only give it awy for a maximum of five days. If you don’t have a Kindle (and who knows, maybe Santa is bringing you one) you can always download the free Kindle Viewer app from Amazon which will allow you to still read it on your computer, ipad etc.

To keep you going until then I have also made all of my other e-books free from today until Friday.

Get them here:

If you like what you read, please, please, please leave a review telling people what you thought.

I realised today that I have been neglecting the promotion of my e-publishing empire of late. I’m planning on putting together another collection of short stories soon to enter into a competion. In the meantime I remembered that I have some free promotion days to use up for my existing e-books available from the Amazon Kindle store.

Himself By The Seaside will be available from tomorrow until Monday – get it here if you’re in the UK or here if you are in the USA.

When The Revolution Comes will be available from tomorrow until Sunday – get it here if you’re in the UK or here if you are in the USA.

Although Spring has sprung and Summer is nearly upon us you can remind yourself of winter with a free copy of my one-off Christmas short story, Reindeer Dust which will also be £0.00 from Saturday through Sunday – get it here if you’re in the UK or here if you are in the USA.

If you already have these books and enjoyed them please recommend them to your Kindle owning friends or leave a review for others to see. So far only Reindeer Dust has garnered any sort of feedback and (apart from some positve reviews from some of you) that was mostly American readers telling me they had bought it expecting a nice happy Christmas story and were extremely disappointed when the got something different. Oh, and a big shout out also to Steve Porter who wrote a very long positive review of Himself by the Seaside.


At last, Himself by the Seaside the latest Lemon Tree Writers’ chapbook has landed in electronic format and can be purchased from the Amazon Kindle store at the following links
