Campervan Fiction Bargains – this weekend!

Fancy some campervan fiction to accompany your travels over the Easter holidays?

Then why not check out my Campervan Bushman Mystery Series starring Aussie Scott Chevalier?

Forced by circumstance to go to a cold little island called England to film a TV show based on his enviable bush skills and campervan-surfie lifestyle, Scott & the crew inevitably wind up trying to solve mysteries along the way.

The series has an edge of humour, a sense of adventure, and a hint of romance. And this weekend, there’s a bargain or two running, so read on to see if anything tickles your fancy…


Currently free when you subscribe to my newsletter – CLICK HERE to sign up on my website… Or else purchase it for $2.99 – CLICK HERE for the store links. 


Until Monday 27 March, it’s in a 25-novel cosy mystery collection which retails at just $3.99CLICK HERE to get it. But be quick! If you miss out on that, CLICK HERE to pick up the store links for Deathbed of Roses.


Reduced to 99c – I’m holding the price-drop for a few more days – CLICK HERE for the store links.

I hope you’ll enjoy the read! Have a great weekend!

FREE Campsite Tales

Tales from Corny Cove

Apologies, but I’ve been a bit slack… because yesterday I put a post up on my main Pyjama Writer blog then immediately shot out the door to enjoy a day of sunshine riding my bike, only realising this morning that I hadn’t shared my news on this blog.  (Some people are just plain selfish, aren’t they?)

Basically, I wanted to share a special treat where my loyal subscribers (err… that’s you, in case you were wondering!) can pick up a bunch of stories for free in the ‘new improved’ Tales from Corny Cove series.

WHY IS THIS RELEVANT to you on the Campervan Capers blog?  Because the stories are set on a campsite – but more on that in a moment…

Originally intended to be published as 5 separate novelettes, I instead released Tales from Corny Cove in 2014 as a single novel-length book.  Well, I’ve recently put the stories through the mangle…  They’ve been reworked and have shiny new covers, and I’m now re-releasing them as a series of 5 separate novelettes as well as a box set.


Well, Henry and Margaret Mooney are!  They’re the two main characters in the Tales from Corny Cove series.  And when Henry was facing redundancy, they decided to sell everything and travel in their campervan to the south of England in hot pursuit of their dream.

Eventually, they ended up running a campsite on the picturesque coast of Cornwall only to discover that there were a few nightmares along the way.


Suffice to say, if you like easy, light-hearted reads with a feel-good ending, why not pick up the five novelettes in the Tales from Corny Cove series and join Henry and Margaret as they get to grips with a host of bothersome campers as well as the obnoxious red-bearded farmer next door?

Yesterday, the Tales from Corny Cove box set of tales was free on Amazon, so apologies that you’ve missed that.  But all is not lost!  Because the good news is that each of the FIVE novelette tales will be free on each of the FIVE days of this week – in turn from Monday to Friday (ie starting today, 16th May!).  Just click a link below to pick up each title on the relevant day

Meditating frog

O-oh!  I’ve been meditating in a cave all week and missed all this!

Well, the good news is, with all that meditation, you probably won’t be quite as stressed out about missing out on the above as you might normally be.  But if your brain is ready for some new input after all that retreat time, know that the box set is at a low introductory discount price which I’ll be holding for a limited period after this launch…

All you need to do is hit the link below for the Tales from Corny Cove box set to reach your country’s Amazon store:

NOTE!  The box set includes some bonus ‘behind the scenes’ insights into the tales which you won’t find in the individual novelettes!

Reading a book

One of my goals over the coming months is to continue to put out more fiction as well as build a readership of folk who enjoy my work.

One of the ways to do that is to encourage readers like yourself to spread the word.  So if you have a moment, please share this blog to pass on the news.  Or perhaps post a link on your favourite social media network.

Well, here’s hoping you enjoy your visit to Corny Cove where Henry and Margaret are waiting for you in the ‘new improved’ Tales from Corny Cove series!
Happy reading!

LATEST NEWS – Too Much Grindstone?

Nose to the Grindstone

As mentioned on the blog’s homepage, my travel blogging has, over these past few years, had to make way for other projects.  I’ve posted the odd tiding, but I’ve had a lot going on over this past year and a half – including rebuilding and renaming my main website.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you’re still using the old Foley’s Forum website link, be aware that you need to update your favourites to pick up the new Pyjama Writer link instead – click here for details of all this in a previous blog.

In any case, here’s a quick round-up of my ‘latest’ escapades…  You can click on any of the images to find out more.


Life in a Cornish Paradise…
What could Possibly Go Wrong?

Tales from Corny Cove


An Action/Adventure-Style Novel with a Twist of Humour
Set in the World of Cycling

Cyclopathic Tendencies



The Trials & Tribulations
of Living with an Obsessive Cyclist

Cycling Widows 2

The Cycling Widow’s

The Cycling Widow's Survival Guide


Beastly Encounters and The Cycling Widow’s Survival Guide are permanently FREE for anyone who wants to download them, and the other cycling-related ebooks will be running at a DISCOUNT for a very short time.  So if any of them takes your fancy, why not check them out and get them at a reduced price while the offer is on?

With all these book projects going on, it might sound like I’ve got my nose too close to the grindstone.  Well, that’s probably true to some extent, but I do still make time to get out and about.  Earlier this year, Steve & I took a trip up to the Lake District, followed more recently by a weekend shimmying along the Tarka Trail.  (I have to admit, after a couple of weeks off the bike, my backside was in need of a rub – thank goodness for Steve!).

And for my NEXT ACT?

Although I haven’t strayed too far into campervan territory with the above books (the nearest I’ve got is Corny Cove), my latest writing project does involve a chap with a campervan.  I’ve been beavering away on this one these past weeks now.  However, this is the first place I’ve mentioned anything, as the project is still under wraps, so I don’t want to give too much away at this point – I’m still in the ‘creative stage’ where anything could happen!

NEWSLETTER Homepage Link

As always – enjoy!

Click to download for FREE on the Smashwords websiteIn 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)?
