I remember...

...when all of this was fields, as far as the eye can see!
Well, technically it is all still fields, and open moorland, because I live in the middle of nowhere. Nonetheless, my point remains...

I'M GETTING OLD!

Older, anyway. Forty one, to be precise, for I was born on March the 4th, 1976 and this Saturday will mark the 41st anniversary of this momentous event.
In celebration, I have initiated the Birthday Protocol!
Which basically means I'm using it as an excuse to have a sale on my books and eat cake.
Since I can't offer you some of the cake (and I absolutely would if I could, honest), instead I have chosen to give (*adopts Bane voice*) the gift of literature to you, the people.
Ahem.
Anyway. This weekend, from the 3rd to the 5th of March, my first two books - Crystal Eyes and Heroes Wanted - will both be completely FREE to download from Amazon.
In addition, Sorrows Herald (the sequel to Crystal Eyes) and my latest, The Salvager, will both be on offer at significantly reduced prices from midnight on Friday to 11 pm on Sunday. I think. The time picking thing on Amazon's author dashboard was a little wonky.
Unfortunately, the discounts can only be offered in the UK and US Amazon stores although the free books are, I believe, universal. Why this is the case, I don't know. You'd have to ask Amazon about that.
So there you are, cake and awesome books! YAY!
You know what would be a great birthday present, to make me feel better about the slow trickle of sand through the hourglass of my life? 
REVIEWS! Please review them. Pretty please with a cherry on top.

What else is happening in the world?
(*looks at world*)
You know what? Never mind. Let's leave that horror show for another time.

That's it for now.
Until next time, be excellent to one another

P.S. Here's a pic I took yesterday from my back door, just in case you didn't believe me about the fields. Usually there are just sheep and the occasional rabbit in there, this time it was a red squirrel...
