“Desiccation” on Offer This Weekend #kindledeals #Freereadstoday

This weekend I’m in the mood to give away yet another freebie to entertain people during lockdown. This follows on my free eBook deal three weeks ago. Many thanks for all those lovelies who downloaded Noah Padgett and the Dog-People onto their Kindles, and also to those who decided to buy the paperback version instead 🙂

The Kindle free offer for my novel Desiccation is for today and tomorrow (June 6-7) worldwide on Amazon. Here’s my Booklinker url that should work for most of you (myBook.to/QuirkyLit). If not, just go and type the book title and my name into the Amazon search bar.

Desiccation (published in 2015) is a mix of science fiction and urban fantasy suitable for anyone over the age of thirteen. As with my Noah Padgett novel, I suspect that most of my readers have been adults, despite it being listed as a young adult novel.

See below my blurb for Desiccation, as shown on my Amazon product page…

ST TRINIAN’S meets INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS

In 1967, mayhem erupts at an elite English boarding school.

The head girl Samantha is a sociopath, determined to exploit every loophole in the system. After her venture to set up a nocturnal brothel in the gymnasium proves a flop, she invites a disgruntled customer – mod gang-leader, Joe – to a midnight séance in the library. But she hasn’t bargained on his becoming the conduit for a powerful malign force bent upon the destruction of worlds.

The teachers and pupils soon undergo extreme personality changes and develop a hive mentality, determined to ensnare everyone into its collective conscience. When science scholarship girl Janet fights back, she becomes the despised outsider, shunned by the hive but stalked by the head girl, who no longer speaks in her own voice but that of the delinquent mod Janet has seen hanging around the school.

In mortal terror and with her credulity already stretched to the limit, can she throw her trust upon the hippie pixie that lives in a gargantuan psychedelic toadstool behind the school swimming pool and who claims he’s an expert in repairing interdimensional rifts?

“Noah Padgett and the Dog-People” — Time-limited Free Offer on Kindle

I can’t believe that four years have passed since I published this novel, and I admit to not having done much to promote it for the latter three years. Despite its wonderful reviews and popularity in the beginning, I admit to being terrible at promotion!

But now I have a good reason to mention its existence, as I would like to give people in the UK and the US a freebie to download onto their Kindles (or Kindle apps) during Lockdown. My apologies to anyone living outside of these countries, but Amazon doesn’t allow me to extend this offer to other locations.

Noah Padgett and the Dog-People is a fun, multi-layered read for anyone aged 9-100+. The story is a quirky fantasy adventure starring a 12-year-old boy and his chocolate Labrador puppy, who, by a series of mishaps, end up in another dimension where the predominate species is Canis sapiens.

The novel is also available as an audiobook on Audible (narrated by the fabulous actress Mil Nicholson). If you want to sync the two versions to switch between reading and listening, I have some free promo tokens. To request one, just ask via a “comment” on this post, and I will reply with your code.

There is also a paperback version, but I’m afraid that isn’t availabe for free.

Please note that the giveaway for the Kindle version ends on Monday, May 18 at 23:59 hours (PST) and 20:00 hours (BST)
