Happy Christmas!

I hope you all have a lovely time over the next week or so whether you celebrate Christmas or not.

Here are a few freebies and offers in case your plans include reading -

My short story collection is still free. My publisher, Alfie Dog have a few other freebies too.

Sally Quilford is giving away two of her Regency novels between now and Christmas Day.

If you've signed up for Amazon Prime you can read Paint Me a Picture or A Year and a Day for free.

Using code DQ88A will get you 30% off Escape to the Country until the end of the year. Or try DY25F to get Robert Crompton's Leaving Gilead for free.

Ana Salote's book Oy Yew will be free on Boxing day (her birthday)

Katie Stewart's Mark of the Dragon Queen will be free from 26th to 30th December.

Finally, I have Surprise Gift, a new and appropriate story up on Alfie Dog. Not on special offer, so you'd have to pay the full 39p for that one.

If you're running your own free promotion, feel free to mention it in the comments.

btw, in case you were wondering what authors like for Christmas, I can assure you sales/downloads are on the list. So are reviews from anyone who enjoyed their work.

  2. Merry Christmas, Patsy!
    And I like iTunes cards - the more the better. Then I can download all the books, music, and apps I want.

    Thank you, Patsy. And all the other generous authors.

  11. And a very Happy Christmas to you, Patsy!
    Those freebies are very tempting but I'll pass, thank you. I've got a pile of 'real' books to read, and a whole shelf of e-books, and I've also been dropping hints that book tokens make perfect presents ... I'm looking forward to taking a break from writing over Christmas and catching up with my reading.
