Free! Free! Free!
This weekend for five glorious days, BRING ME SUNSHINE is FREE on Amazon UK and US. As regular readers of my blog will know, I am not totally in love with having to promote and publicise my own work. So in order to maximise takers on this undoubtedly magnificent FREE offer, I paid for a bit of promo.

But something went wrong - and I'm not going to name names here - but let's just say that apart from a little bit of successful publicity, the rest just didn't happen. I've spoken to the people involved and they were very sorry and I'm getting a refund and all that, but I still have a book on FREE for 5 days, and that is my total FREE allowance for the quarter.

I wanted to cry, when I realised that not one promo experience had gone pear-shaped, but two.

So what did I do? Well, I went on jolly old facebook, asked for help, and WOW! I got it. Individuals, Kindle Users Group and Free Promo pages all rallied round. And then the folks on Twitter did the same.

So this post is just to say a big THANK YOU to all those lovely writers and writery types who rally round. I love you!

You make the world a better place...

(Oh, and did I mention that BRING ME SUNSHINE was FREE until August 27th?)
