*** Free Kindle e-books this SUNDAY, 7th August ***

Algy’s assistant is doing a book signing event at a local lighthouse visitor centre on Sunday 7th August, and so – for the benefit of all his friends who live too far away to attend – Algy is offering both his books FREE in Kindle e-book format all day SUNDAY, until midnight American Pacific standard time.

This is likely to be the last time that Algy’s first two books are offered free, so don’t miss it!

This is also the best way to get a free print copy of Algy’s forthcoming third book, which is due to be published shortly before Christmas 2016. Just post an honest, personal review on Amazon – of either of Algy’s first two books – between now and November, and Algy will send you a free, signed, print copy of his new book when it’s published… providing you let him know about your review, of course, or he won’t know where to send your book! Just a few lines is all that’s needed 🙂

As well as helping other readers make informed decisions about which books to buy, reviews make a critical difference to the visibility of books on Amazon, so they are extremely important to Algy, because it’s not easy for stories about a wee fluffy bird on the wild west coast of Scotland to get noticed among the millions of books that are published all round the world…

These links should take you straight to Algy’s two books on your local Amazon site:

Amazon UK

Amazon Gemany

Amazon France

Amazon Italy

Amazon Spain

Amazon Japan

Amazon USA

Amazon Canada

Amazon Australia

The free download offer starts just after midnight on SUNDAY morning, 7th August, and ends at midnight on Sunday evening – Pacific Standard Time.

p.s. You don’t need a Kindle device to read a Kindle book – Amazon provide free Kindle reading apps for most systems.

Please share and enjoy!

*** FREE KINDLE BOOK DOWNLOAD on SUNDAY 13TH MARCH ***

The Kindle book offer will close at approximately midnight PST on Sunday 13th March, but Amazon control the exact time that it ends.

Although it was cold, grey and very damp, with a touch of frost on the grass, it was also unusually calm, so Algy carried his friend the little black teddy to a comfy perch on a low, spreading branch of the big fir tree, and read him the story of The Tree with a Golden Heart – the latest in the series of Tales from the Adventures of Algy.

Have you read Algy’s new book yet? If not, you can download the Kindle version for free tomorrow, Sunday 10th January – don’t miss it!

***** FREE KINDLE BOOK DOWNLOAD ON SUNDAY 10TH JANUARY *****

Please share these offers with your friends and followers 🙂

As
there has been so much interest in his new book The Tree with a Golden
Heart
, and many people were away during the launch last weekend, Algy has extended his special offers through this weekend.

TOMORROW SUNDAY 10TH JANUARY – FREE KINDLE BOOK DOWNLOAD from all Amazon sites worldwide. The promotion lasts from midnight to midnight Pacific Time (Amazon controls this) on Sunday 10th January. Algy will post direct links to the Amazon pages for the book tomorrow.

AND YOU CAN BUY A SIGNED COPY of Algy’s new book, with a personal dedication of your choice, from Algy’s own bookshop at 25% OFF RETAIL PRICE.

The 25% discount also applies to Algy’s first book, A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, for the duration of the offer.

(Note:
the discount is not displayed on the main bookshop page, which shows
the normal retails prices, but you will see the 25% deduction applied in
the shopping basket before checkout.)

Algy regrets
that he cannot apply the discount to postage costs, which are low for
the UK but unfortunately rather high for airmail overseas. However, the
discount should help to offest the postage to some extent.

If you
would like a print copy of the book but don’t want it signed, it will be
cheaper for you to buy from your local Amazon or from The Book Depository,
who offer free international postage!

The area of the lighthouse rocks which Algy loves best is on the more sheltered side, away from the open ocean, but right down beside the sea. It’s necessary to be exceedingly careful down there, as the tide can wash in very fast and the water is deep and dangerous. When the sea is angry, it will smash anyone and anything onto the rocks with great force. But when it is relatively calm, it is safe to perch among the rock pools and watch the waves roll in, with the islands of the Inner Hebrides floating on the horizon. Even then, however, it is essential to keep one eye on the advancing tide at all times!

The rocky headland around the lighthouse provided the inspiration for Chapter 2 of Algy’s book A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird – and the Kindle version of the book is FREE to download from Amazon worldwide all this weekend. Don’t miss it!

Have a lovely weekend everyone – and relax with Algy’s book 🙂
