To Celebrate the release of SHADOWSEA. Usborne have released special editions of Cogheart Adventures with extra sparkle and sprayed edges. Don’t they look gorgeous? Look out for them in a book shop near you!
If you are looking for an adventure story filled with danger and daring to read during your self isolation, for one month only all of the Cogheart Adventures are available at the Amazon Kindle store of only 99p!!
Grab yourself a kindle copy of each of them here…
For one month only in April 2020!
In recent days I’ve had many enquiries from teachers and librarians who were half-way through reading one of the Cogheart Adventures stories with their class before schools closed. Lots of classes were left on a cliff hanger, and teachers wanted to keep reading to their students online.
I think this is a GREAT idea! I asked my publisher Usborne for their permission to do this while everyone is in self-isolation. They got back to me with their OK and their conditions for sharing audio recordings of the Cogheart Adventures online…
Please check out their terms and conditions here before you go ahead and create your readings.
Also, if your pupils would like to read along, all of theCogheart Adventures stories on Kindle are now reduced in price to only 99p for a month!
HAPPY READING ALL!
