Today, Sunday 12 of May 2013, you can get a free download of Daddy was a Punk Rocker by British author Adam Sharp onto your Kindle or Kindle for PC.
Sharp's true account of his birth and upbringing in by drug using parents in the era of punk rock is recently published, and has already received several 5-star reviews on Amazon.
I got my copy this morning, and my review will come later.
By Graham Worthington, author of Wake of the Raven and Zorn.
This Tuesday 9 April 2013, ending midnight, I'm making my most major novel, Wake of the Raven, available free for download on Amazon's Kindle e-reader. The zero price lasts just for the day, but the download onto your Kindle is permanent.
If you don't have a Kindle, no problem. You can have the novel downloaded directly to your computer, providing you first download 'Kindle for PC,' from Amazon, which costs nothing and takes two minutes to place a Kindle reading program onto your computer.
I published this novel a few years ago, and as Amazon in its great wisdom recently deleted most of my reviews, I'd love some more, especially from the Xanga community.

Congratulations to Xangan author Lynn Voedisch on the publication of her third novel, Dateline: Atlantis.
DATELINE: ATLANTIS is a contemporary fantasy featuring a female Indiana Jones
who dives underwater and accidentally finds what just might be the lost world of
Atlantis. After she and her photographer document fabulous pyramids under the
Caribbean sea, they return to their newspaper in the Los Angeles area, only to
have all their evidence stolen. The sea rolls back and reclaims the ruins, and
their photographer is kidnapped.
Someone doesn't want the undersea world
The simple news assignment becomes more complicated with each turn, and takes Amaryllis Lang (pen name: Amy Quigley) on a whirlwind investigation to Chicago, Florida, Mexico and the Bahamas, where Amaryllis must deal with a cold-case murder, a red-hot editor eager for a Pulitzer, two men desiring her love, deadly traps, and a chance to re-write history.
Recently I had some minor annoyance with... let's not be specific. Nothing to do with Xanga, or the internet. Just old fashioned, trouble seeking, whispering gossip from a family I (unfortunately) know, whose pea brains apparently lack the capacity to appreciate the big joys of life, and instead go scraping through petty quarrels to find entertainment.
"They behave as though we're still in the jungle" as my old mother would have said. But if handed lemons, make lemonade, or so the saying goes. Therefore, a little poem suitable for little people, especially those who cannot learn or grow:
As jungly as our grandsires were, so did our parents grow
As jungly as our parents were, so grew my wife and I
As jungly as my wife and I, so did our children learn
As jungly as our children are, so will grandchildren be
To the jungle! To the jungle! To the jungle boom boom boom!
