As I write, the experts are dissecting on TV the impact of the Budget just unveiled by UK Chancellor George Osborne. I don’t claim sufficient expertise to add to the acres of coverage it will already be getting.

As I have just uploaded my dealing-with-debt book to the kindle store, and as I feel sure that thousands of people could benefit from it, I want to ensure it gets into the hands of as many of them as possible. I don’t want the price of the book to be a barrier.

For an introductory period, therefore, the kindle version of “Back to the Black: how to become debt-free and stay that way” is available at a launch price of £0.70 (or $0.99 plus VAT). Go to

For the sake of consistency, this promotional price also applies with immediate effect to the multi-format versions, including .pdf, that were already available in the Smashwords store ( The price adjustments in both stores are already active.


Reading eBooks on other devices

You don’t need a kindle to read kindle-format books! If that doesn’t make sense, what I mean is that if you read eBooks but don’t have a kindle, there is a neat piece of (free!) software called “kindle for PC”, enabling one to benefit from the improved readability of the kindle technology (and it really is) when reading on a PC or any other device. There is also a Mac version.

For a download link, just type “kindle reading apps” into Google.

Note: unlike physical books, eBooks carry VAT (I don’t understand the reason for the difference). The price in dollars is thus $1.14 to include VAT, i.e. British sales tax, even if the book is bought via . In sterling the £0.70 price includes VAT.
