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.

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

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:

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!

Campervan Mystery – FREE TODAY

Captain - free cozy mystery

Just in case any of you campervanners out there might enjoy reading some campervan-related fiction, I thought I’d let you know that the first book in my new Campervan Bushman Mystery Series is on Amazon FREE TODAY – so why not pick it up before the promotion expires?

Here’s all the info in case you are totally in the dark on this one (pretty much a copy & paste job from my main blog to save time!)…

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

As with all the planned books in my Campervan Bushman Mystery Series, Killer Climate has an edge of humour, a sense of adventure and a hint of romance.

I kinda like to describe the star of the series, Scott Chevalier, as a bit like a young Crocodile Dundee, only with a campervan & surfboard.

You can read the full blurb on the Campervan Bushman page on my website, or the Amazon page for the book – link coming up.

BOOK-1-WS-SIZE

WHERE DO I GET IT?

Just click here to pick up the link to an Amazon store in your own country.  It’s available till midnight (Pacific Time).

BOOK 0 - PREQUEL - FEB 2016 - JPG

GET THE SERIES PREQUEL – FREE!

If you think Killer Climate and the Campervan Bushman series might be for you, then why not download the series prequel, WIPEOUT, for free by joining other eager readers on my hassle-free New Releases mailing list?  Just click here to get started.  Easy peasy!

Remember to SHARE the good news on your FAVOURITE social network!

Hope you enjoy the read!

A Campervan Mystery Series – Launching Soon!

READY-STEADY-MYSTERY-LAUNCH

I might not be busy writing blogs for the Campervan Capers site these days, but I’ve been well & truly occupied writing, editing and getting my latest book ready for release on Amazon in a couple of days…

And, guess what!  The book I’ll be launching this Sunday (6th December) features a main character who drives a campervan!  In fact, his campervan lifestyle is one of the things which led my ‘hero’, Aussie Scott Chevalier, into hosting a British TV show called The Campervan Bushman.

If this sounds like something that might tickle your fancy, why not click here to check out today’s post on The Pyjama Writer Blog to find out more?

See you there!

WELSH LEEK Grows Beyond 200 Barrier

Reblogged from the Foley’s Forum website…

Back in February, my free travel ebook, Campervan Capers 2broke 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!

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?

CAMPERVAN CAPERS FREEBIES Break the 200 Barrier

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).

MORE NEWS…?
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)?
