The Firebird now free on Amazon US

They caught up to the other platforms selling it for free!



My free novella, The Firebird, is now also free on Amazon for US buyers. You can also get it on Smashwords and Google Play for free- give it a read before buying the full book, Strange Matters.
The novella includes some other little samples, such as British Gods, which received a pleasant tweet from Neil Gaiman himself!
Next job is to get it free on Amazon UK- working on it. If you struggle to get hold of a copy, just drop me a line via my contact form!
The Firebird FREE weekend!

The Firebird FREE weekend!

Hello sailors and sailettes!


If the headline was too obtuse for you, basically, The Firebird is free this weekend. In my own little ‘Black Friday’ giveaway, the novella is 0p from Friday 29th to Sunday 1st, on Amazon. Ebook only, I’m afraid!

Here is a link.

Please do grab a copy while it costs nowt! You might like it, or not. You might never get around to it. In any case, it’s a big help to a struggling novice writer to have those all-important Amazon rankings (and reviews even more so!). Check out the existing reviews if you’re undecided.

That’s all she wrote. The Firebird is a fable, an original folklore tale based on traditional elements from Slavic folklore. The style of writing is heavily angled towards that, with loaded symbolism and formal sentences. Don’t worry, it’s not archaic. It’s fun. Especially if you like a strong female character with a penchant for hunting.

Have a good weekend, everyone!
