Whatever next? Check out this article, in which a campervan is being used to teach photography!
As per my recent blog, my Campervan Capers book is now in print, and I’ve noticed it’s come up at a discounted rate on Amazon UK – reduced from £6.99 to £6.29 – and that includes postage & packaging, too. Great value!
I have no idea (or control over) when these offers will appear, so if you’ve been thinking of getting the book, why not head on over to the Campervan Capers page on Amazon.co.uk to read a sample before you decide to buy?
Offer ends… I don’t know when!
Reblogged from the Foley’s Forum website…
The Welsh Leek story is a light-hearted travel tale adapted from the Campervan Capers book and is another free-to-read download.
As with all of my ebooks, you don’t even need an eReader to read them, so if you like a good travel tale, why not click on the link above to find out more. There’s even a short trailer for each of the above-mentioned works.
In case you missed the blog a few days ago, I’ve just announced the publication of Campervan Capers as a print book. So if you like The Welsh Leek Conspiracy, why not check it out via the link above?

When it comes to launches, a bottle of champagne is often thrust against the side of the vehicle in question (with no thought of Health & Safety in mind, I hasten to add!) But what do you do when you launch a book? For one thing, you don’t want to get champagne all over the pages, do you?
While you ponder that little conundrum, why not pop on over & check out the latest Foley’s Forum blog where you can find out about the release of the Campervan Capers book in print, along with my other travel book, The Jacaranda Trail?

OFFER ENDS THIS WEEKEND !
In the not-too-distant future, you can look forward to seeing the Campervan Capers book available for sale not only as an ebook but also as a paperback.
In the meantime, I’m pleased to share with you that The Welsh Leek Conspiracy (a light-hearted travel tale adapted from the book) and Campervan Capers 2 (a sequel adapted from the 2011 Campervan Capers blog entries) have recently broken the ’200 downloads’ barrier.
Both short ebooks can be downloaded for free by clicking the above links and logging onto the Smashwords website. They’re available in formats suitable for just about everyone - whether you have an eReader, want to read from your computer screen or print off a PDF at home. So if you haven’t gotten round to reading them yet, why not check them out?
While you’re on the Smashwords website, you can sample 20% of the original Campervan Capers book for free and watch trailers for each ebook mentioned here (scroll to the bottom of each ebook page on Smashwords).
I’m currently listening out for any news from Smashwords as to whether they’ll be taking part in this year’s Read an eBook Week promotion. They’ve been supporting it for the past few years now and they give their published authors (like myself) the opportunity to offer their work free or at discounted rates. As the promotion runs every March, I’ll let you know as soon as I hear any news. And if you want to ensure you don’t miss out on offers such as these, why not consider subscribing to the blog (in its right-hand panel)?

As many of you will know by now, the book is an adaptation of the Campervan Capers blog entries from 2011, which I wanted to publish for free in a handy eBook format.
Now, I know the word ‘eBook’ will send shivers down the spine of a few folk who still haven’t got an eReader (ironically, you can count me in!), so it might come as a surprise to know that my publisher, Smashwords, offers all my work in formats not only for eReaders – like the Kindle & iPad – but also in formats for home printing – eg PDF – and reading on your computer screen.
Why release the Campervan Capers blog entries in book format? you may be wondering. Well, although the blog is free to read for anyone with a computer or other internet-enabled device, publishing as an eBook will open our travel stories up to a-whole-nother audience. In fact, since the publication date, only a few days ago, I’m amazed to see that the new book has already been downloaded 32 times!
For those who are new to this blog, it’s worth mentioning here that there’s also an original Campervan Capers book and, as with the blog/sequel, the stories follow me & my partner, Steve, as we embark on various mini adventures in our campervan. My aim is to write in a style which is both light-hearted and practical, so as to entertain as well as pass on tips we’ve picked up along the way.
Now, I hope you’ll all forgive me for publishing Campervan Capers 2 slightly later than anticipated – my excuse being that I’ve been putting together more photos of our travels on Flickr and short videos for the Campervan Capers books on my new YouTube channel.
WHAT TO DO NEXT?
Well, why not visit my Smashwords Author page direct, where all my published works are listed. Some, like Campervan Capers 2 and The Welsh Leek Conspiracy (adapted from the original Campervan Capers book), are free. And you can sample 20-30% of the rest for free, too.
Alternatively, you can go to my Foley’s Forum website, where there’s information on all my books as well as a whole load of other free-to-view stuff such as short stories, articles, poetry & photography.

Steve’s still doing a fair bit of cycle training at this time of year, but I haven’t given up hope of pinning him down at some point to write something for the next Steve’s Cycle Shorts. Once I do that, you can rest assured you’ll be reading about our latest trip up north in ‘Old Bessie’ (as Steve calls our campervan)…
