Short description

Shelley is lost in a World once known as Aeden. The ancient Tree of Life is dying, and deadly Thornmen are hunting her. Someone else has been waiting for Shelley. He asks to be her Guardian on a perilous quest to save Aeden. The Thornmen are closing in as the Girl and the Guardian seek the faery refuge of Urak Tara. In the terrible Valley of Thorns they make a daring – and fateful – pact…

Well,  it is a bit depressing for us authors, but the fact is, folk love digital free and hate even a low price, mostly I guess for the convenience of not having to muck about paying a small sum to a faceless internet machine.

So the recent 9 day Free offer for the Girl and the Guardian made a spike in my Smashwords download stats, tailing off a fair bit but plummeting to ZERO downloads the day it went back to 99 cents. 😦

But now brother John and I are agreed, we will release the Hounds of Free until 31st of December 2012, to sniff out the lost innocents who cannot find their way back into Aeden, and lead them penniless across the threshold into the Nine Worlds of the Apples of Aeden, where they will be enriched in spirit and (by the end of volume I) be thankful enough (and hooked enough) to go to the bother of paying for further adventures in II, III and IV (and V, the epilogue, when I write it).

So, it is done. You may now zap over to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/243499 and download the full volume one complete with colour maps and lexicon, for Zero money. And if you like it or love it, do write a little review sentence or two and help others know Aeden is out there…

The Girl and the Guardian Epic at Large – FREE for 9 days

(It HAD to be Nine days, of course…)

This is the FREE ebook only on Smashwords, where you can download it for any platform… all new edition of the text and many more coloured graphics too. And the glossaries, and lots of MAPS! Very useful for getting around on Aeden.

(It is on Amazon too http://www.amazon.com/Girl-Guardian-Apples-Aeden-ebook/dp/B003FMUXPM/ref=sr_1_3?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1349780472&sr=1-3&keywords=girl+and+guardian, but their minimum price applies there – 99c).

Pass this on to anyone you know who may be looking for an alternative to rereading the Lord of the Rings for the 11th time – you/we/they know who they are… 🙂 Readership – 11 to 111 years.

Extended description

Volume I of the 2000-plus page epic fantasy Apples of Aeden, twelve years in the making, [with brother John’s enduring support]… Newly edited in October 2012, with many new coloured maps and graphics throughout….(more on Smashwords. Go to the page HERE: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/243499)

If you download and enjoy it, any feedback (a like or a review or passing the link to friends) would be wonderfully appreciated! 2012 is the year this epic needs to be out – at the dawn of the Fifth Age!

oh and volume II is out, on kindle only. III to follow… IV is in edits. You won’t run out of this world if you happen to love it, for a long happy time. A LOT of bed-time reading here, though I say so myself.
