Free Short Story Weekend

Free Short Story weekend (Jan 14 -15, 2016)

This weekend you can read some examples of my writing for free.

Yes you read it right …. This weekend all four of the Rags to Riches short stories are available to download and keep for absolutely nothing, zip, nahda, bugger all, that is to say FREE.

As Leo Sayer sang back in the 1970’s I’m “Giving It All Away” … Because it is a big thing to do to invest in a book by a writer you have heard of and a book in a genre you have never tried.

  • What if I hate it as a result of the way it is written?
  • Maybe I’ll not be able to understand the subject?
  • Supposing I am embarrassed or offended by the content?

It is just a case of following these links to Amazon .co.uk to buy, read and keep or throw away at no risk, for nothing, for Free.

Cocoa and Pyjamas

Cocoa and Pyjamas, a short story for 99p

Cocoa and Pyjamas – A Short Story part of the Rags to Riches series.

Cocoa and Pyjamas has escaped. The story started life in one of those conversations …

“a naturists nightmare … a dream in which you are going to work and everyone is pointing at you, you look down and you are wearing clothes!”

“Nah! A naturist nightmare is waking up and finding you are wearing pyjamas.”

“No a naturist nightmare is drinking cocoa in your pyjamas before going to sleep!”

“That is the plot for a story.”

“No it isn’t it is a nightmare.”

“It’s a plot and I’m claiming it”

“Ok do it”

PZ Walker gets the last line again, but I got the story.

Short but positive and I thought mildly humourous story. good fun and no sex, the only body parts named hands, feet, legs, arms and waist (I think)

The Naked Warriors

The Naked Warriors is a  short story in the Rags to Riches Series.

Buy on Kindle Shop

This story is about the life and loves Captain Paul Johnston. Paul is the elder brother of Bea, the woman in the life of the Uncovered Policeman. while he has not appeared in the series to date, although he has been mentioned, so this is the first time we meet him.

Paul has been sent on detachment to the Falkland Islands as part of the British Forces defending the Islands. He has just received three letters from three different women. This afternoon he has the free time to read them too.

Captain Johnston, Paul Johnston, sat in the chair in his small room in the Officers Mess at RAF Mount Pleasant, the base for the RAF and British Army in the Falkland Islands. He had just received 3 letters, so he had collected a mug of coffee from the dining room and planned to read them all during the afternoon. Later that night he would be taking over as Duty Officer so until then he had a little quiet time to himself.

Interesting all three letters from women, if only two of them weren’t from his mother and his sister. The other one was from one of his former platoon commanders. He would save that one for last.”

I got to like Paul during this story. I am sure he will be back  in Rags to Riches 4, not that I have started that book yet!
