Happy Midsummer with a free book!

Happy Midsummer's Day everyone! And a freebie:

I've just finished reading the Touchstone trilogy and loved it. Book One is free for the Kindle, so although this is only the first third of the story it gives you the chance to decide if it's worth spending the £5.92 to read the whole story. (Hint: it is.)

Cass walks through a wormhole and finds herself in another world, one which is similar to Earth in many ways but with disturbing differences. She has to find a way to survive long enough to find a way home.

It's hard to do justice to this story because it's huge in scope, with so many interesting characters and settings. Luckily book one has a glossary! I was completely engrossed in this other world and felt like I was living with Cass through the events she describes. Some reviewers have complained that the story is slow in parts but I enjoyed the rest periods when things were going well for Cass. Given that the whole of the first third of the story is free, you get a real chance to decide if it's for you.

Happy reading or whatever else you're doing today!

Looks good - I've downloaded it. Thanks for the tip, FH.

What a lovely longest day today :o)

Isn't it glorious, Lexi?

I've just noticed that, spookily, you have the same number of followers as I do - 169.

I wonder how many are the same?

fairyhedgehog said...

Lexi, how cool is that?

Mind you, I know that in my case at least they're more like "alleged followers". A lot of them seem to have left the blogosphere for FaceBook or other exotic destinations and I don't think anyone ever thinks to sign out of a blog they've stopped following. (I know I never do!)

Of the ones who are left, I wonder how many we do have in common.

Thanks for that! Hope you're enjoying the glorious weather.

Simon, thank you. I am indeed enjoying the good weather and I'm loving the long days even more. This is my absolutely favourite time of year!

My dear friend,

Thought I should stray over and see what's happening.

What a great way to start the summer. Thank you and I'm on my way to check out the trilogy.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

Gary :)

I emailed you and it bounced......
And I seem to have mislaid your original email address (which is so totally like me! I'll have filed it somewhere but not where it would be easy to find later!)


fairyhedgehog said...

I've emailed you! Please let me know if the mail doesn't arrive and we'll have to try something else!

fairyhedgehog said...

I've now emailed you at the new email address you gave me (which I won't publish here as it would attract spam).

If you're still stuck, I have an email address in my right sidebar, but it's an image not a link to deter the bots.
