I love this time of year. In New Zealand, it's spring, so the daffodils are out and the lambs start bounding around. I don't even mind the rain, because it makes everything look a little greener.
It's also my birthday in September, which is always a reason to celebrate. And that's why I'm writing this blog. I've decided to do something a little bit special.
This year, my family and I are off to the Sunshine Coast in Australia for my birthday, so I won't be around to celebrate. We will be going to fun places like Australia Zoo and Sea Life, going whale watching, and maybe see some koalas. I'll be disappointed if I can't find a platypus or a kangaroo to say hi to, and we'll be shopping up a storm.
But my point, the whole reason for this post, is that those of you who see this are getting a little bit of insider knowledge. Because I'm planning to put up my first book, Ringmaster, for free, for the entire week of my birthday.
It's a little birthday present to readers, to people who might want to give my series a go, who might be thinking about reading it, but aren't sure. To anyone who wants to try a new book from a new author.
It's always hard, I know. I was just searching on Goodreads for a book to read on our holiday, and rather than going for my old favourites, I was trying to find a new author. I was browsing on there for an hour, and I'm still not sure who I'm going to load onto my kindle.
Which is why I thought, why not make that decision easy for some people out there? Why not help people to read my book with absolutely no downside?
Go ahead, grab my book in the week from the 22nd September to the 26th September 2014, it'll be free, and hopefully you'll like it as much as I enjoyed writing it….
