That's a really nice review to get. And well deserved. My wording is definitely not as good as his :D

:dance: It's out on Kindle! :dance:

And therein hangs a tall tale - see blog for details (Ding Ding Round 3) :roll:

But it's all good - Milele Safari is now available on Kindle for the princely sum of £2.45
There will probably be a tie-in with Shelterbox donations in the near future (they're featured in the closing chapters of the book) but I've pitched the cost fairly low straight away on Amazon so it's not too off-putting. Do leave a review for me if you like it and tell your friends! :twisted:

For the traditionalists who don't do Kindle or other eReaders -

I currently have 2 paperback versions of Milele Safari that I can sign for you for the discounted price of £10 (usually retails at £11.95).

:dance: First 2 people to PM me for more details can get their SIGNED copy sent out to them tomorrow!!!!! :dance:

:D Thanks WWD - I've actually already tried to upload the book and it was just waiting on this last development for me to be able put my UK banking details on so I'll be putting it on there tomorrow night most likely.

And it's easier than putting something up on Amazon with CreateSpace as well :lol:

It is with some relief that I can let everyone know my latest writing project Dreamless Roads - a fantasy anthology (a joint one with several other writer friends) is now on sale at some of the more popular online outlets

Image

So that's the pretty bit and here are the links for
AMAZON - Paperback & Kindle

Barnes & Noble - Paperback & NOOK (it's in the system will add link when I get it ;) )

It's also available online or for order through Waterstones (use the ISBN - 0992747244 at the shop) which means you should be able to go into any bricks and mortar book shop to order it if you'd rather deal with a real person ;)

Here's the blurb for the rest of it :P - Join us on the Dreamless Roads where we step across the threshold into the unknown to discover words that have turned into worlds of imagination, legend and, of course, fantasy. Commune with your inner elf, or dwarf, quest with heroes and warriors, and cross the borders into the land of gods and dragons ~ and the past and future realms of possibility and adventure.

I've got 3 stories in there - Dreamless Roads (a semi-auto-biographical story); Onwards and Upwards (a Kiplingesque story from Milele Safari); and The Dead Path and Danny B (one time regular on this board) has 2 great dark fantasy pieces - Redcap and Jack Who Had Two Faces. There's also 2 whimsical pieces, Chronodendron & Cona the Barbarian from a book club mate of Pip's, Irish writer & journalist Clare O'Beara. I think most people on here would like the mix of contemporary, dark and epic fantasy and 1 very quirky offworld sci-fi piece and the writing on all of them is pretty darned good! :twisted:

Nice one Jano :clap:
