Smashwords’ annual July Sale hits the web at 12.01 am Pacific Time Saturday 1st July. That means late night in Australia. It’s 8 am Saturday London time. The sale ends 11.59 pm Pacific Time 31st July, so Australians, Asians, Africans and Europeans still have access on August 1st, for a while….

There will be thousands of people giving their books away free. I think more of my books than that, but I am putting my series on sale.

Princelings of the East

Thousands of people have the first in the series on their iPad, Kindle, Nook, Koboreader or other ereader already, so I’m leaving it at full price!

The next five books are in the July Sale at 75% off, which is $0.99 each. So if you’ve been meaning to get them, now’s the time…. and the rest are half price at $1.99.

You can find the Princelings series here:

The Viridian Series

Rather than send you to each of the books individually, I’ve just put the box set in the July Sale at HALF PRICE which is $5.99 – for three books of about 90k words each. That’ll keep you busy 🙂

correct box set cover 640 tall

But it here:

Series overview:

Big Pete and the Swede, more correctly known as Pete Garcia and Lars Nilsson, are asteroid miners in the far reaches of the galaxy.  The asteroid belt of the Viridian System is rich in orichalcum, a rare, very useful, and therefore extremely precious metal, which everyone wants.  The Imperium, a dominating oligarchy which masquerades as a benevolent democratic institution, wants it badly.  And after years of being happy just to trade it and leave others to do the dirty work, it wants to control it, like it does other useful things.

Planets that produce grain abundantly?  Take them over. Planets with the raw materials for plasglas? Turn them into manufactories.

The only organisation that seems to have any hope of opposing the Imperium is the Federation, and they aren’t strong enough to be everywhere at once. Besides, they have their own type of nasty dictator…

…and then, what would happen if there was a galactic disaster?

    I like your plan on this. I pretty much gave up on the sale, since in the last several I have only “sold” free books. Maybe I’ll experiment…

      I doubt whether there’ll be any sales, partly because Smashwords own email announces thousands of free books! But I mentioned it to several ebook readers who didn’t want to buy my paperbacks today.

    I shared this on Twitter. Best of luck with the sale.
    July 4 is Alice in Wonderland Day, a commemoration of when the story was first told to the Liddell sisters by Lewis Carroll in 1862.
