K. Velk | 40 comments Did you know Elizabeth II R has a birthday coming up next weekend? It isn't her actual birthday, which is on April 21. The weather is a little too dodgy then for a parade or trooping the "colour" etc. so they move the party to late May or June.

This year, it is on June 16. Have you thought what you might get for HRH? I am happy to say that, for once, I have planned ahead.

Are you sitting down?

I am offering her Majesty, and everyone else with a Kindle and working knowledge of English, a free download of my book, Up, Back, and Away.

The giveaway commences at midnight on June 14, 2013 Pacific TIme, and ends midnight June 15. (With the time delay that covers her big day).

The book is a time travel adventure story wherein our hero, a fifteen-year-old boy from suburban Dallas, is sent back to England in 1928 (on a vintage English three-speed bicycle) to "find a girl with a gift, a girl born out of her time," and a "secret that was not meant to be" and then return home with them both.

So, if you have a Kindle and the slightest bit of interest wait til next weekend and pounce, or click, really. Remember Queen's Birthday = free book. Queen's Birthday = free book. Queen's Birthday = free book. (This is supposed to be like a Manchurian Candidate style trigger for you).

Incidentally, the paperback is on sale now at one third off the cover price so, there ya go. Also, if you have Amazon Prime you can borrow the book (and other Kindle books) for free anytime.

K. Velk | 40 comments Oh Dear. Since no public holiday was declared I missed that one. If he has Amazon prime he can borrow the book for free. I am sure he'll be rushing to do that - if he has any strength left after blowing out all those candles.

Deanne | 684 comments We don't have public holidays for either the Queen's official birthday or her real one, and I only know it's Phillip's birthday because I was christened on it.

K. Velk | 40 comments I gather that it isn't a holiday partly because the celebration is on a Saturday. Wikipedia tells me that in the UK that some civil servants are given a "privilege day" at this time of year which is often merged with the Spring Bank Holiday to create a long weekend, so I guess at least a few get a bonus.
