Book Giveaway 12 July 2012

To celebrate the 28th birthday of Amanda Hocking, the patron saint of independent publishing, I am giving away my short story, "Essence" on Amazon (ASIN B008C253DC). The giveaway will be enabled whenever Amazon realise it is the 12th, which will probably be sometime after 0700 GMT, since their computers keep Pacific Time.

If you missed it last time, this is your opportunity.

Midsummer Giveaway

To celebrate the Day of Midsummer, I am giving away my latest Amazon publication, Essence. I suspect Amazon keep Pacific Time, so depending on where you live the offer may start on the 19th or the 21st, but for 24 hours, it will be free.

Watch this space.

Short Story on Kindle

I have put my short story, "Essence", on kindle: ASIN B008C253DC. It is a modern tale of scientific research, but with fairy-tale romance behind the science fiction.

I have set the price at the absolute minimum Amazon permit, but I'm also going to set it for free giveaways from time to time.

I hope you enjoy it.

Strandhill Summerfest 2012

I've been invited to speak at a forum on the new publishing technologies at Órfhlaith ní Chonaill's Strandhill Summerfest 2012.

If you are a writer living in the West of Ireland, I'd certainly recommend it: not because you want to hear me talk about making kindle books or print-on-demand, but because Órfhlaith runs such inspiring workshops for writers of all levels.

Having been along to her regular monthly writing workshops, I'm really looking forward to this.
