Smashwords Sumer/Winter Promotion 2013. 1-31 of July!

It’s July, again. It’s now been a year since Magical Roads has come out. Time sure went fast.

 

But, people who follow my blog know what July is all about, SMASHWORDS SALE! Something I don’t think I’ve missed since I started this blog 3 year ago. Just because it’s awesome!

 

RULES:

– Books can change in price throughout the month, some people might only participate in this sale a part of a month. I don’t have any influence on this.

– Books can be added to or taken out of the sale at any point.

– The links to the books don’t work on their own, you need to add the code to the shopping cart when you pay for the books. When you click the update button it will automatically jump to the right price.

 

 

 

What do the codes mean:

SW100 = 100% off (aka FREE)

SSW75 = 75% off

SSW50 = 50% off

SSW25 = 25% off

 

 

 

Here are the books, listed in the order I add them as to not confuse people who keep checking back.

 

Kia Zi Shiru: LGBT, Young Adult, Fantasy

SW100

 

SSW50

 

 

Simon Haynes: Science Fiction

SW100

 

SSW50

 

SSW50

 

 

Amy Keeley: Fantasy

That is what I’ve got right now. New ones will be added. You can always message me or otherwise contact me to be added to this list.

I bet you want a release date, right? ;)

So, yes, I’m back! Sort of… More on that later 😉

I finished my second year of university almost 2 weeks ago, which both seems really far away and really close at the same time. The only thing left is waiting on my results now.

For the past 2 weeks I’ve been doing all sorts of things, mostly having quite a few social responsibilities and fixing up things to live at my parents place or my boyfriends place over summer. I haven’t really gotten that much writing done yet. I’ve yet again found that writing 12K worth of words in less than a week is very VERY stressful and I’ve yet to fully recover from it. Plus that writing essays and fiction are two totally different things and require a different mindset. Sometimes I do wish that it was the same though, writing my story as an essay, though it would probably end up only be 5 pages instead of 500… Especially the way I write. 😉

Soooooooo, I’ve been saying that I’ll have a special thing for this summer and I think it’s time I’ll tell you what it is.

Around the first of July I will release a short story collection with magical realism stories.
