My next FREE Kindle book for kids is Silly Monsters 1,2,3

Mousington has forgiven me for hiding his jam.

So, what to do to celebrate? Fishblanket has been giving me rides around the walled garden in a wheelbarrow. I have had a large slice of chocolate cake.

And now I am going to give away another free Kindle ebook for kids on amazon. I say "for kids", but really anyone can download it. Why not? It's free!

I generally don't read "grown-up" books myself. They are usually boring.

Here is the book I am giving away, it is a Silly Monsters counting book. It is scheduled to go free on Amazon on Friday 27th July and Saturday 28th July.

Join the freevolution!

Another free ebook for kids from Celebrity Author, Gerald Hawksley!

Just popped in to say that the Kindle version of Don't Juggle Bees is FREE again on Amazon tomorrow (Monday) and Tuesday, the 23rd and 24th of July.
(I have been grounded today by Lord Treacle for hiding Mousington's jam. I protested that I was a Celebrity Author, and that jam-hiding was part and parcel of that role, but he was having none of it.)

Not another free ebook?

"Why are you giving away so many free ebooks?" asked Fishblanket one day.
We were on our way into the village to buy new underpants for Lord Treacle. He has them handmade by the local undies maker (who's also the baker and the undertaker).
He gets through so many because he insists on sliding down the bannisters to breakfast every morning.
"Well," I said, stopping to put the wheelbarrow down for a minute, and wiping my brow, "I suppose it is because I'm not selling many."
"Hmm," said Fishblanket, "You ought to get a proper job."
"I do need new shoes," I said.
"Cheeselamp is looking for an apprentice lard-pit scraper . . ."
"Tempting. But I think I'll stick with the ebooks. Things might look up soon."
"You're a fool," said Fishblanket, "A fool with holes in his shoes."

And so it is, as no-one is buying Happy Hat Day at the moment, I am giving it away for nothing.
It won't get me new shoes, but hopefully it will bring a smile to some small tot's face. And what is that compared to smart footwear?

Adverts in ebooks. Why I am putting adverts in my ebook.

I think judiciously placed advertisements relevant to the content of the ebook can enhance the reader's experience. Obviously this must be done with taste and flair. Imagine, for instance, if you were reading an ebook about a chocolate factory. When you reached the end, you would probably quite fancy a bit of chocolate. Imagine your surprise and pleasure, therefore, to find placed elegantly before you an opportunity to place an order for, say, Fishblanket's Luxurious Chocolate Fancies! Delivered to your door within an hour by helicopter, and at the cost of a mere one thousand guineas. Would that not be a fitting finale to your reading experience. Who could resist?

In just such a spirit of maximising reader pleasure I have partnered with several esteemed online purveyors of hats, and have added adverts (or hatverts, as I call them) for their wares to the end of my children's ebook Happy Hat Day.

Here they are if you are interested in such things.
(I am quite willing to disclose that I earn one shilling for every one thousand hats sold. Ker-ching!)
