A belated Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2013's treating you well.
There are a couple of bits of news - firstly that my story, "The Bus Driver Who Stopped and then Didn't", is available to read on Morgen Bailey's blog. If you've not visited Morgen's blog before, it's well worth a look as she's put together hundreds of articles, stories, flash fiction, and interviews covering all types of writing.
The second item is some good news regarding a short story, which you'll see if you follow the above link to my story. As per Morgen's introduction, I'm on the short list for the H.E. Bates Short Story Competition and am heading over to the prize-giving evening next week. Wish me luck!
Anyway, the main point of this post is that today's my birthday, and by way of celebration I am making the ebook version of Somewhere to Start From free on Smashwords for the next two days. Just go to my book's page (follow this link), click download, and use the code:
If you don't already use Smashwords, I think you might have to register (for free) in order to download the files. Then you can choose your format - they offer .mobi files for Kindle, .epub files for iPads, Nooks, Kobos, and most other ereaders, plus PDF if you prefer.
I hope lots of you will download the book, and that you'll enjoy reading the stories. If you've already read it, please let feel free to pass on the links and voucher code to your friends and family who might fancy a story or two.
