A special offer for Mom’s everywhere on Mothers’ Day USA.
The catch? Well there has to be one doesn’t there?
Firstly, you have to go back to 1841, England, and murder someone, or if you’re squeamish, try stealing a yard of ribbon from your employer. The sentence could well be the same: transportation on a convict ship to Van Diemen’s Land – now called Tasmania. For petty theft, you may get a sentence of a year, and for murder, you’ll be exiled for life. But even a one-year sentence could mean life, for how would you ever afford the £29 fare to return home to England when the average worker earns less than that in a year of hard labour?
My great-great-great uncle and his two cousins were exiled for life for killing one of Lord Northampton’s gamekeepers in Yardley Chase, Northamptonshire, and For Their Country’s Good, a fictional tale, is based firmly in the facts I’ve been able to uncover. The research has been a real eye-opener into life in Victorian England and the penal colonies and goldfields of Australia.
But, these days, you don’t actually have to be convicted of a felony to experience life as a convict on the far side of the globe, and on May 10th to 12th, On Different Shores, Book 1 of For Their Country’s Good trilogy, will be free.
To make things really easy on the pocket, Books 2 and 3 will be discounted to 99p/99c from 10th May to 17th May.
You can download them all here:
