This week is a special week as it marks the annual ‘read an ebook a week’ promotion.
It started way back in 2004 as a low key event as ebooks had just started to become popular, and is now a global buzz with all major publishers and booksellers getting in on the act to heavily discount their books for a week.
My books are no exception with all three of my ebook works on Amazon under the Hornbill Publishing label heavily discounted for a week by up to 67%.
Drip by Drip
Set in Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and the UK, this is a story of how a dream holiday can turn into a living nightmare.
Bill & Rachel Brown are just an average middle class English couple looking to celebrate twenty-five years of marriage with their first real travel adventure in nearly three decades together.
What started out as a seemingly innocuous stomach bug was to spiral into a terrifying ordeal that would threaten absolutely everything that they held dear.
Could they find the strength to survive against all the odds?
‘Drip by Drip’ is now available as an ebook & paperback on Amazon.
Travelling By Train Across The Balkans
Will (aka Wilbur) has been hooked on overseas train travel since a first inter-rail trip in 1987 that transported him to nine European countries in a whirlwind three weeks.
In 2006, circumstances determined that Will and his regular travel buddy Hamish were to embark on a new European tour by train. They were hooked all over again.
Will has now toured every possible European & Eurasian country by train, clocking up tens of thousands of track kilometres in the process.
With further books planned recounting journeys behind the Iron Curtain and throughout the former Soviet Union, this first book concentrates on the intoxicating & volatile Balkans region.
Synonymous with disputes and conflict, the region is beautiful, fascinating and most importantly peaceful once more.
Tensions borne from centuries of disagreement and occupation are still bubbling just below the surface however.
Follow Will on his journeys through Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Northern Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia & European Turkey, taking in the thrills, dramas & offbeat characters experienced along the way.
Available from Amazon as both an ebook and a paperback, ‘Travelling By Train Across The Balkans’ is a perfect reading companion for your own adventures.
This Is How It Feels To Be City
Forty-four years since their last major league title, City were crowned champions of England in 2012 for only the 3rd time in their history, pipping local rivals Manchester United on goal difference in the process.
In 1999 they won a far less coveted trophy awarded for winning the Division Two promotion play-off final and thus propelling the club back up to the ‘heights’ of English football’s 2nd tier.
At almost exactly the same time, the aforementioned local rivals were completing an unprecedented treble of the English Title & Cup as well as being crowned champions of Europe.
Without City’s 99 victory, it is highly likely that 2012 triumph would never have happened. Modern City may be light years away from the humble outfit of the late ’90s, but there are plenty of parallels to be drawn alongside all of the contrasts.
This book captures the dramas and the emotion produced by the two winning squads with both seasons culminating in unbelievable climaxes, as witnessed through the eyes of two lifelong City fans, 40 something Will and nephew Martyn, 17 years his junior.
Feel their hopes, fears, nerves, disappointment, resignation, exultation and final momentous relief.
Available from Amazon as an ebook or paperback, ‘This is How it Feels to be City’ can be enjoyed by lovers of all sport, illustrating as it does the experience of living the highs & lows of the game, together with a demonstration of the unwavering partisan loyalty that supporting any team in any sport entails.
