News and Notes




It's that time of year when I give my novel away for 5 days as it's set in the few weeks over Christmas and New Year.   Dec 19-23

You can get it for Kindle or download a free Kindle reading app. You need to use the Amazon website for your own country.

Fed up with the seasonal commercialism and sentimentality? As an antidote we're giving away the dark, alternative Christmas novel 'Everything is Free' by Adele Ward. It's becoming a tradition to give it away at this time of year!

You'll need to use the Amazon website for your country and the giveaway is available around the world.

Here are the links for the UK and US but you can also find it on all other Amazon websites to get the free offer:

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day. 
If you get an address like this:     
paste it into the address bar of Firestorm, see if it takes you to the exact coordinates.
