Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments My "Toby's Tales" series is a semi-fictionalized series that tells the story of a little boy named Toby's adjustments after sight loss. They're based on my own experiences with adjusting to life after losing my sight.

The books are aimed at children, but have been enjoyed by readers of all ages.

There are five books in the series:

1. Toby's New World
2. Toby's Monsters
3. Toby's Outing
4. Toby's Games
5. Toby's Special School

While the books sound fascinating, can I please ask you to create a thread of your own to promote them, or stick to the general promotion threads, rather than spamming everywhere? Thanks; I'm sure others would appreciate that too!

I'm glad; the spamming was getting annoying.

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments The following books of mine are now available as paperbacks from CreateSpace and Amazon:

Toby's Tales, book 1: Toby's New World
Toby's Tales, book 2: Toby's Monsters
Toby's Tales, book 3: Toby's Outing

The rest of the series will also become available as paperbacks... Just as soon as it can be arranged.

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments The following books of mine are now also available as paperbacks from CreateSpace and Amazon:

Toby's Tales, book 4: Toby's Games
Toby's Tales, book 5: Toby's Special School

So, that's all the "Toby's Tales" books now available in both eBook and paperback formats.

The eBook formats are available to buy from Smashwords, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and a few other eBook retailers, as well as to request from libraries
who support electronic lending (you might have to wait for the library to get hold of a copy mind).

The paperbacks are available from CreateSpace and Amazon now, and will be available to request from bookstores and libraries in the next couple of months
(if you request the book from anywhere other than CreateSpace or Amazon, there will likely be a slightly longer waiting period while the book is ordered).

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments I recently discovered that the books that I've made available as paperbacks are now available to buy in paperback format from Barnes & Noble - along with all the eBook versions, which I knew they carried already.

Just thought I’d let you know, in case you want paperbacks, but prefer to shop at Barnes & Noble.

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments It's time for the 2016 Smashwords Summer/Winter sale!

To celebrate, the eBook versions of every single one of my books is half price this year... This includes my Toby's Tales series.

You can find the Toby's Tales books at https://www.smashwords.com/books/byse...

So just go to that page, add the books to your cart, and enter coupon code SSW50 at checkout for each book.

Yes. It is the same code for all five books in the series. In fact, you can use that coupon code for as many of my books as you want, and it is the same coupon code for all of them... It works that way because it's a sitewide promotion.

No. The coupon code will not work on other sites. This is a Smashwords only thing.

Don't forget: Smashwords offers a large variety of formats, and most Smashwords authors take advantage of this - I'm one of them. This means that you can buy books from Smashwords in a format that will work for you, regardless of your prefered method of reading eBooks, be it with a spacific eReader, or on your computer. So there's no excuse not to take advantage of this oppertunity to get some eBooks on sale.

Sale ends July 31st 2016.

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 2778 comments I’m delighted to announce that Kindle versions of all five books in my "Toby's Tales" series are now also available directly from Amazon.

Just so you know though: if you can’t find them on the Kindle store for your own country for any reason, or simply prefer to buy from Smashwords, you can still buy Kindle friendly versions via Smashwords too.
