PICK AND MIX



Hi, I thought I'd let you know about my collection of short stories, Pick and Mix which are available for $1.15.

The themes of the stories include: moral dilemma in time of war, facing up to childhood challenges, lost love, desperate actions and their cause, revenge and dealing with old age.

Also, can I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has bought, tagged and reviewed my historical novel, The Lost King: Resistance

Welcome to KindleBoards, Martin, and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

My mum has Alzheimer's Disease and I had a very special morning with her today.

Because of this I have decided to donate the royalties for my book Pick and Mix for the month of July to Alzheimer's charities in honour of her and as a thank you to all the people who care for people with dementia.

It can be read on all e-book readers.

If you want to read more about what prompted me to do this please look at my post Invisible Threads on my blog.

I hope you feel able to support the charities in this way.

Thank you.

What a fabulous gesture. As a carer I have seen how Alzheimer's can affect both the sufferer and their loved ones. It is something that cannot be truly explained or understood by those who have never been in the situation.
Good luck with sales, I will check it out on pay day x

Good on you, Martin!

I know what you're going through. Alzheimer's took my father away, years before it ended his life. I wrote about the disease (fictionally, of course) in my horror novel THE SLAB.  His brain was donated for Alzheimer's research, and the facility where he spent his last years now has a music room named after him.  I'll be sure to check your book out and support the effort.

Thank you Kempton and Jeff

How wonderful to have a music room named after your father.  My mother loves music and, astonishingly, until recently had a great memory for songs.  We used to go to singing for the brain together.  She always remembered much better than I did.
