I’ve recently started putting stories on Instafreebie, which, for anyone who doesn’t know, is a site where, obviously enough, you can find free reads! It seems well organised and, from an author point of view, is another way of reaching new readers. Apart from the short stories I’ll continue to list as free on a permanent basis, I’m also putting books up for around a week at a time. If anyone knows anything I don’t know about Instafreebie I’d love to hear from you! At this stage I’m only using the free service; I know you can pay for different services.
These are my perma free stories at the moment and I intend to add another one very soon:
you never knew You probably think this story’s about you, don’t you?
Brown Dog Luke is flat broke and living in his car at the beach when an old mutt sidles up to him–the last thing he needs, or is it?
What Did You Say? Not a short story but a small ebook to help with grammar and punctuation. Do you know the real purpose of the humble apostrophe?
I always tweet the temporary giveaways and you can find details on the right side of my blog posts or on twitter.
I’ve just been on my annual trek to my home town for my mother’s birthday. I do try to get there more often but never miss Mum’s birthday. She’s 97 now and still living at home (alone) and cooking her own meals. She does have some help with the housework as well as the garden but she still likes to potter around out there as well. There are lots of other family members who live much closer than I do, fortunately, including more grandchildren and great grandchildren than I can keep track of! It’s always nice to visit my old home town but it’s good to come back to the place that’s been my home for over 30 years.
