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.
ARE YOU LIVING YOUR DREAM?
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.
DARE I SAY MORE…?
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…
Thursday 19th May – TALE #4 – NO BED OF ROSES
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:
TALES FROM CORNY COVE
Box Set – Tales #1-5
All Other Amazon stores
NOTE! The box set includes some bonus ‘behind the scenes’ insights into the tales which you won’t find in the individual novelettes!
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!

Campervan Capers Book
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…
Back in February, my free travel ebook, Campervan Capers 2, broke the 200 downloads barrier. And recently, so did The Welsh Leek Conspiracy, which I published about a year ago.
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?
As always – enjoy!

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)?
