My new online friend Charlene Newcomb, who also writes evocative and passionate historical fiction, has given me a hand in my efforts to get the word out about my books. Because of her, I was able to participate in the
which is run by Michael Jensen and Jeff Adams, both of whom are terrific and successful authors, who have taken the time to include other authors in their giveaway, which is generous and good, and I hope someday to pay it forward.
The point of it is, you go to the site (here’s the link) and sign up for an author’s newsletter, and voila, you get to download something from them. It might be a novel, a novella, an excerpt, or something! But it’s all free! The giveaway runs from November 20th to November 27th, so grab your goodies while you can!
The first book in my Oliver & Jack series, Fagin’s Boy: The Further Particulars of a Parish Boy’s Progress, is included in the giveaway, but if you already have it, you can tell someone who might be interested.
Okay, so, private aside. I keep wanting to say, “All free today!” much in the way that the Child Catcher did in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But happily, these books are all free for seven days, which is a much better prospect!
Here’s a clip of the Child Catcher, which, looking at it in retrospect, comes off as rather more creepy than I remembered. The first one is free, kiddies!
