Read what you like,
Pay what you think

I hope you will find this site creative and innovative. The core of it is that you can download any of my books and read them before paying (or not) what you judge they have been worth to you. The rules are simple.


Download Book


Leave a review and make a contribution. This amount can be anything from zero to a king’s ransom!


That’s it. You can see that this inverts all normal buying habits. It puts you in charge.


You deal directly with me, the author, both by contribution and feedback. No middlemen. No Amazon. No need for prior reviews in the literary columns.

I hope you all become a fan of the site and tell all your friends, or tell me what you think of it here.

The Podcaster

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Here I am, getting all techy sith my mic, baffles to absorb sound and a rather neat podcasting platform called Buzzsprout. the intent? To draw people to this website and encourage them to download books.

it’s quite addictive, actually. Choosing extracts to read, getting the head around presentation, music underpinnings, the arts of sound shaping with various effects like ’fade-in’, ’fade out’ and ‘sound normalisation’. But the big one is the actual reading! Do I put on voices? Do I heavily dramatise?

In the end I have opted for a nuanced narrative voice, no character accents, but building up a style that is clear but allows the reader to impose her/his own interpretive subjectivity. I think I’m getting better at it.

If you’d like to listen, go to the following link: and I hope it entertains you!
