First, the free books, because I'm sure that's all what you're really interested in ;).
Candle Dark by Carole Anne Carr is free on Amazon through the rest of today, July 8, and her book First Wolf will be free from July 12-13.
About Candle Dark:
Joshua was nearly eleven and he’d worked down the Blists Hill coal pit since he was seven and a bit. He hated it down there. He hated working in the dark, he hated the rats and the stink of the tunnels, and he especially hated it when the mine flooded and his wet boots rubbed his feet raw.
Then on the day that Bradley the horsekeeper gave him another beating so bad he ached all over, he made up his mind to run away and find work on the Severn trows. But what would happen to poor Drummer, left behind in the dark? What would happen to his mum and sisters if he left them to the mercy of the evil Isaac Whitlock? And how could he sail to Bristol, when his dad had been set to work in the most dangerous part of the mine?
Afraid of the river gangs and worrying about his dad, Joshua must decide whether to run for his life, or to stay in Coalport and try to protect his family.
First Wolf links:
Since I announced the launch of my website, I've made a couple changes.
Mostly, though, there's a search box. It crawls text and images, so you can see the pictures of all of the different birds by searching for "eagle" and clicking on the tab to the left and below the search box. Hope that helps those who wanted a method of looking up eagles by picture and not just name. Also, it allows you to search for specific attributes of different species, e.g. "stable population", "live in Europe", "eat fish", etc.
Furthermore, I've done a little fiddling with the design. Nothing big (it should look the same as it did when it first launched) but I think it'll work better on smaller screens. So far as I can tell, however, I need to either a.) Create a mobile site or b.) Completely overhaul some elements to make it work on mobile devices. Right now, the previews I've checked indicate the ED is terrible on anything below around 600-800px. Brainstorming to do . . .
How's your weekend been? Is the heat wave smothering your area? Will you be downloading Candle Dark or First Wolf, or have you already?
