Violet Jelly Trilogy
This post is to announce that the first two books in the 'Violet Jelly Trilogy' are now available on amazon in kindle version.
They cost $1.17, 77p, and €0,89
Although I prefer an actual book, I see this as a way in which my books are affordable. They can be bought for use in a library or for use in a classroom, without each child having to purchase the book. I like this idea.
When I have done library talks and work shops, generally, the children do not have the money to purchase the paperback version as often they are using the library because they do not have the resources to buy from a book shop. I really wanted to give away books to each of the children, but this was not practical (they had cost quite a bit for me to buy in and I did not have sufficient copies).
My desire is that these books are read and enjoyed. They are fun, can be read on different levels ... and even enjoyed by adults. The target age is 8-10 years.
The illustrated paperback version (which could be bought as a treat) costs $15.95 and is available only on amazon.com.
The unillustrated paperback version is availble from between $5-$7, around €5 and 5 pounds sterling.
I am not promoting myself as a fantastic writer, but my books as something to read that is slightly different. If you know of anyone in the right age range, please tell them to look on amazon.com (where there is a 'look inside' feature)and direct them to my web site:
where they can see some of the characters and read the reviews.
Also, there are free downloads on the web site; one is a book for children of 3-5 years old called 'Atchoo!' and is about a giant with a cold; another is a way in which to learn number bonds from 1-20, and there are bookmarks and a calendar to download and print onto card, or thick paper.
The third book 'Discovering Jasmine T' will be finished and available next year and paperback versions of 'Violet and Lavender' will be on amazon soon.
Thank you for reading!
