It has been really rewarding to be able to share for free (in serialised form) the entirety of my first book, Janapar, on this blog over the last few weeks. In particular, the comments from readers who the story has resonated with have been a keen reminder of my motivations for penning this complicated tale.
Because I did not write this book in order to become rich and successful. (Trust me, there are far easier ways of doing that.)
No – I wrote it to be read and absorbed; to catalyse journeys that I don’t expect I will ever hear about. I also wrote it because I needed to make sense of my experiences. And I wrote it because it was stories that inspired me to travel in the first place, and the least I can do is throw my own tale back into the melee.
In the vein of lowering the barriers to entry, then, I’ve set up a 1-week promotion on the UK Kindle edition of the book. This is primarily for readers who a) have recently received, from Santa, a Kindle or other such device, b) missed all or part of the serialisation, and/or c) are actively looking for things with sub-£1 pricetags in the grim aftermath of the festive season.
From now until midnight on Sunday 10th January, Janapar is just 99p on Kindle.
99p is the lowest I can make it without moving it over to the free library and losing all the book’s rankings in the process.
If even a quid is going to be painful to part with, the serialised form is still readable entirely for free, part by part, starting here.
And when you’re done, if I could kindly ask that you leave a short review, that would be just great. 🙂
