One year ago I clicked the “publish” button on Amazon and sent my book “Susan: Convict’s daughter, soldier’s wife, nobody’s fool” out into the world. It was an exciting but daunting moment.

To mark the anniversary of that event, the ebook version of the book is FREE THIS WEEK on Amazon, ibooks, kobo, and several other sites. If you haven’t read it, now’s your chance to download a copy for free. Please share this page or the link below with anyone who you think might enjoy reading it. (This is a universal link to all the sites where the ebook is available. Click on the icon for the store that you prefer and it should take you to the relevant page).

I’m encouraged by the fact that almost everyone who reads “Susan” seems to pass it on to friends and family to read. Thank you everyone. If you’ve read the book and enjoyed it (and your surname isn’t Budrikis!) don’t forget to leave a rating or a review on the site where you bought it, or on Goodreads. You can also send me a short review to post on the book page on this website if you don’t have an account anywhere online.

The paperback version is still available at the usual price at and
