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)?

CAMPERVAN CAPERS 2 – Launch Celebration!

AFTER the recent launch of Campervan Capers, I’m happy to be able to announce the release of a free sequel, CAMPERVAN CAPERS 2.

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.


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.


Did you read the recent blog about the Smashwords Summer Sale?  If not, just click the link to find out how to get discounts on all my books for the entire month of July!


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)…

In the meantime, if you missed the last Tour of Flanders blog, along with a ‘words & pictures’ video treat, then why not click the link to check it out?

As ever, I remind readers that, if you’d like to be kept informed of the latest news & offers, why not subscribe to the blog to automatically receive an email whenever new posts appear – thus saving you the hassle of checking for updates?

Hope you enjoy reading!

WELSH LEEK Grows Beyond 100 Barrier

Reblogged from Alannah’s Foley’s Forum blog

Already over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to announce that two my other works – the free ‘Ralph Ingleton’ short story and satirical Cycling Widows book – have had ‘record downloads’.

So this week, I’m pleased to share with you that The Welsh Leek Conspiracy, a light-hearted travel tale which I published back in early March, has just broken its own ‘100 downloads’ barrier.

The story (a true one!) is free to read and has been adapted from Campervan Capers, a book about my first year exploring the world of campervanning with my partner, Steve.

I plan to keep The Welsh Leek Conspiracy available as a free download, so if you want to read it, just click on the link.  If you enjoy reading it, why not submit a quick review, tell your friends, or check out Campervan Capers? – You can currently sample 20% of the book for free.

Both The Welsh Leek Conspiracy and Campervan Capers can be downloaded in a variety of formats – for eReaders, reading on your computer screen or printing at home.

I sincerely hope you enjoy them!

Photos – New Section on Blog

Are you one of those folk who’ve enjoyed the photos on the Campervan Capers blog?

Since starting the blog last year, I’ve had several comments from readers saying they’ve enjoyed the photos that accompany our stories

So I’ve decided to put together a brand new section with a selection of our travel photos, presented as collages.  Click the link to see the new Photo Tab on the blog.

If the collages leave you wanting more, then you can always check out the Campervan Capers photos on Flickr.  These illustrate the stories in the Campervan Capers blog as well as my recently-published Campervan Capers book, and more will be added as time goes on.

If you missed out on the blog about the Campervan Capers book, why not click on the link and check it out.  You can currently read 20% of the book for free on Smashwords.

In addition, I’ve released The Welsh Leek Conspiracy, a light-hearted travel tale adapted from the book, as a free download.

All my work is available on Smashwords in a variety of digital formats – for eReaders, home printing or computer screen reading.  For more info, visit my Smashwords Author Page or the Foley’s Forum website.

CAMPERVAN CAPERS – Launch Celebration!

AFTER MONTHS of writing
, rewriting, editing & formatting, I’m pleased to finally announce the publication of CAMPERVAN CAPERS!

I had hoped to publish earlier, but what with us Bimblin’ Round Belgium, it’s had to be delayed by several weeks.  Never mind – my aim of a spring release has still hit a bull’s-eye!

If you’re new to Campervan Capers, the book is a light-hearted yet practical travel book and follows me & my partner, Steve, in our first year of owning a campervan.  And it will no doubt appeal to anyone with a campervan or motorhome, or to those of you who enjoy travel and may have had the occasional dream of owning a camper.

Campervan Capers has now been released with Smashwords in a variety of formats, making it easy to download for eReaders, home printing, or reading on a computer screen.

Why not click on the link to visit the Smashwords website, where you can currently read the first 20% of the book for FREE?  While you’re there, you can also download another freebie extracted from the book, The Welsh Leek Conspiracy.

Not only do I hope readers will enjoy our mini adventures (to places like Wales, Derbyshire, Cornwall & many more), but I’ve also included several sections at the end of the book which I hope will be useful: 30 Top Tips for the Novice, Useful Weblinks, and Considerations when Buying a Motorhome or Caravan.

In addition, don’t forget to check out my infamous (and totally spurious) Faux Reviews by Pseudo-Celebrities from the book, which are free to read on my website, as are my Campervan Capers photos on Flickr and the new travel photo collages just added to my Foley’s Forum website.



Campervan Capers 2 will be out shortly, too.  This sequel gathers together the 2011 entries from the Campervan Capers blog and adapts them into a free, handy eBook, also to download in a variety of formats.


So if you want to find out the latest news & offers, and haven’t already subscribed to the blog, then why not pop your email address into the subscription box (in the panel on the right)?  You’ll automatically get sent an email whenever new posts appear, saving you the hassle of checking for updates.

Hope you enjoy the new offerings!
