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.)

***** 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!

Visit Algy’s own bookshop now 🙂
