Algy is delighted to announce his second children’s book in the series Tales from the Adventures of Algy…

THE TREE WITH A GOLDEN HEART

During Algy’s Golden Heart Launch Party, Algy has some very SPECIAL
OFFERS for readers… discounted signed copies and free Kindle books,
with special giveaways. Please read on for full details below.

The Tree with a Golden Heart is a 190 page chapter book, ideal for 7 to 10 year olds and anyone of any age who has a golden heart 🙂 It tells an exciting story of Algy’s adventure to find special medicine for his sick friend, and of course features the birds and animals – and the beautiful scenery – of the wild west coast of the Scottish Highlands.

Some younger children may enjoy having the book read to them, but please read it yourself first to make sure.

[Please note – the Kindle version is not free on Friday 1st January as Algy was unable to schedule the promotion in time.]

*** New edition of A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird for schools and libraries ***

************* Signed copies with dedications available to buy *************

Some of Algy’s friends wanted to donate copies of his book A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird to their local primary schools, and Algy thought that was an excellent idea for the schools in his own area too 🙂 So his assistants produced a new hardback edition of the book, suitable for schools and libraries; with a glossy, casebound cover it is cheaper and more robust than the deluxe hardback edition. This means there are now three print editions to choose from!

Algy’s assistants are also working hard on creating a wee bookshop on Algy’s own web site, so that you can buy signed copies with special dedications direct from Algy or his assisant. Algy’s bookshop should be ready by late November, in time for Christmas shopping, but if you want to buy a signed copy before the end of November, just send Algy a Tumblr message or use the contact form on Algy’s own web site, and it can easily be arranged 🙂

If you don’t want the book signed, all editions of the book can be bought online from your local Amazon, Barnes and Noble (click on the Hardcover box to see both hardback editions), or The Book Depository – who offer FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. It can also be ordered (using the ISBN shown below) from any good bookseller, but that is likely to be slower.

Because there are now two different hardback editions, it can be tricky to find the right one at Amazon or Barnes & Noble, as they tend to hide one behind the other. But a search using the correct ISBN will always find the book 🙂

Here are the full details of the different editions:

Deluxe hardback edition, cloth bound with matte dust jacket, superior print quality for text and illustrations:  ISBN 978-1-910637-00-5

Hardback edition for schools and libraries, casebound, gloss laminate cover, standard print quality:  ISBN 978-1-910637-03-6

Paperback edition, standard print quality:  ISBN 978-1-910637-01-2

Kindle ebook ISBN 978-1-910637-02-9 Amazon ASIN B0112SRIVM

p.s. Algy is already working on his second book, and it should not be too long until that is ready too 🙂

As soon as they had obtained their copies of Algy’s new book A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, the fluffy guests at his book launch party settled down to read!

Don’t forget to download your free Kindle book today! This promotion will end at approximately midnight, Pacific Standard Time on 12th July 2015.

p.s. Algy’s Surprisingly Fluffy Book Launch Tumblr Party has already started over on lovefromalgy – don’t miss it!

Before long, the tide had swept in over the sand where Algy had been standing, and the two copies of Algy’s book floated slowly out to sea on the bobbing raft, starting their long journey to the four corners of the world.

Algy perched on a rock, with the water and seaweed swirling around his toes, and sang his own composition, The Ballad of a Fluffy Bird Lost at Sea, while the raft gradually drifted out of sight. He hoped that the books would have a safe journey, and find a warm reception when they reached his friends overseas 🙂

ALGY’S BOOK IS LAUNCHED… LET’S PARTY!

Join Algy all day today on his sideblog lovefromalgy for his Surprisingly Fluffy Book Launch Party! The party starts right now 🙂

[The Ballad of a Fluffy Bird Lost at Sea appears in Chapter 9 of A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird.]

The great day had come – it was time to launch A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, Algy’s very first book! Algy got up early, and hurried down to the beach.

Considering that it was mid-July, the weather was a wee bit disappointing, to say the least, and Algy had to battle against a strong south-westerly as he carried his raft and books to the water’s edge, but at least the wind blew the feathers out of his eyes so that he could see what he was doing. Keeping one eye on the clouds overhead, and praying that it would not start to rain again, Algy carefully placed one copy of the paperback and one copy of the hardback in a small plastic box on the raft, and prepared to launch…

Surprisingly Fluffy Book Launch Party on Sunday, here is Algy’s
