Algy is delighted to announce that his assistant has finally got round to creating an official “Goodreads Author” profile. (Note: Goodreads are currently attributing some titles to her which she did not write, but this should be sorted soon).

So if you use Goodreads, please do connect with her there:

And a wee reminder to those friends who downloaded the free Kindle version of “A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird” last weekend… a line or two of review, either on Amazon or on Goodreads, would be very much appreciated.  Reviews help Algy’s books find more readers, and help potential readers understand more about what kind of books they are. Thank you 🙂

Free Kindle Ebook: Sunday 1st October

*** SPECIAL OFFER: FREE KINDLE BOOK SUNDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2017 ***

Algy had a wonderful surprise this week. An enormous truck, which entirely blocked the tiny single-track road outside his assistant’s house, brought him an unusually large delivery…

Algy was astonished. With some difficulty he tore the clingy outer wrapping apart with his beak and then opened one of the many cardboard boxes inside. It was full of lovely new copies of his book “A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird”. Algy sniffed the book eagerly; it had a special, sweet sort of smell that was quite unlike the previous paperback copies he had seen. Puzzled, he asked his assistant to explain, and she told him that these books had been printed on an offset litho press, by a printing company who had been making books for fluffy birds and other customers since the 19th century 🙂

To celebrate this lovely new offset litho print run of his book “A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird”, Algy has made the KINDLE EBOOK edition of this book FREE FOR EVERYONE on SUNDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2017.

Ideal for young readers aged 7 to 10, for reading aloud to the wee ones, and for all adults who love Algy or who remain young at heart 🙂

Friends who have already downloaded this book may wish to do so again as it now has a glossary of Scottish and Gaelic names and words, as well as some minor revisions to the text.

Here are some links that go direct to the Kindle book on some of the main Amazon sites (Algy was not able to access the Kindle book on some overseas sites as he is based in the UK.)

SPECIAL CHRISTMAS OFFER:
FREE UK POSTAGE FOR ALL ORDERS AT ALGY’S OWN WEB SHOP

Signed paperbacks – Algy is expecting to be able to send signed paperback copies out early next week by 1st class post, and they should reach you in time for Christmas, but this cannot be absolutely guaranteed. Please buy from Algy’s own web shop before 20th December. Postage is FREE.

Unsigned paperbacks – Algy can also send you unsigned paperbacks, to the same delivery schedule, and this is likely to be the fastest option – please buy from Algy’s web shop before 20th December (postage is FREE). You can also order from Amazon UK, although they do not yet hold stock. It is likely, but not certain, that they will supply the book before Christmas.

If you are lucky enough to live in Cornwall or be visiting that area, Gallery Anthony in Mullion will be the first retailer to hold stock of the book. They should have it for sale from this weekend.

Hardbacks – Algy is not yet sure which day he will receive stock of the hardback edition (cloth bound with dust jacket). It is just possible that the hardbacks will reach him in time to send to UK addresses for Christmas. He will keep you posted 🙂 The hardback should be available to order from Amazon by the weekend. You can order a hardback from Algy’s own web shop now, with FREE postage, but he does not yet know when he will be able to despatch it.
