Today marks the beginning of read an Ebook week. Over on Smashwords.com they are offering an array of great titles for absolutely nothing. As I am a massive Ebook fan I have teamed up with Smashwords to give Existence Is Futile, The Story of Albert Ross, The Non-stop Dancer, Mia, PiSlamistan and All Hallows’ Eve away for free. The offer ends next Sunday.
Don’t worry if you don’t have an Ebook reader. It isn’t just for the Kindle, Kobo and Nook owners. If you have the ability to read you can read the stories through Smashwords own online reader. If you prefer the feeling of paper in your hands you can even download them in PDF and print them. So go forth my pretties and read read read.
You can find a list of all the titles on offer here

Some rather interesting news….
The gloriously absurd magazine Pickle Fork has published ‘The Non-stop Dancer’. If you haven’t yet read it yet you ought to be ashamed. Head over to Pickle Fork by clicking on this link and immerse yourself in the glory of spellbounding absurdity.
In the meantime I’m having a productive month and have been submitting more than Hulk Hogan. Be good and wear trousers. Until next time.
I was recently invited back to appear on Level Talk with John Harrison to talk about the fascist demonstrations in Warsaw. As someone who lived through ‘International Stay at Home Day’ in Warsaw, and who personally experienced abuse from fascists in Warsaw, I found it impossible to refuse.

As promised(1 day early) here is a link to my appearance on Level Talk with John Harrison, discussing all things Poland, just click on the picture below….
Last weekend I was invited to appear on a radio show entitled ‘Level Talk with John Harrison’ to talk about recent events in Poland. As a rule I largely avoid public appearances in any shape or form, however, felt compelled to accept this invitation.
Recent events in Poland are gravely worrying. In the last week Amnesty International have published a report on the illegal arrest, assault, surveillance and monitoring of anti-government protestors. Human Rights Watch have published a 37 page report on the ‘rule of law and human rights under attack in Poland’. Each week that passes only emboldens the government to stretch the limits of the law further and further.
At this point every single person that loves or has a reason to love Poland has to ask themselves two simple questions. If not you then who? If not now then when? That’s why I decided to accept the invitation. If nobody is interested in what is happening in Poland it is down to us to start the conversation and make it loud enough so we cannot be ignored.
This afternoon I recorded the show with John Harrison, and a charming bubbly lawyer who will one day be the next Mrs Jagger. It will be released on Friday evening. Check back here then for the details.
