Restoration Day is OUT – Again!

It’s been over a year since I published Restoration Day, and I am delighted to announce that it is now – at last! – available to the world in ebook form via something rather more book-oriented than a crowdfunding donation site. It is available, in fact, at Smashwords – and soon via Smashwords’ distribution networks.


This means that not only can you buy an epub, mobi, pdf, txt, html or lrf version from Smashwords here, it will shortly also be available in such places as Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Scribd, Kobo etc etc. Not to mention that libraries using a library aggregator service such as OverDrive or Axis360 will also be able to buy copies (at a reduced price) to loan to their patrons.
