Hello to all those who read me. I hate to do this to you all, but for the moment I have finished writing the short stories. Will I write more short stories in the future… I don’t know, probably… Does this mean I have given up writing? Not at all.

It just means that I’m ready for the next project. If you browse through the Products & Downloads page you will find that I have already written several novels that are available for purchase through the http://www.lulu.com website. Please, if you wish to support me, purchase one of the books. They’re available in PDF and paperback editions. Besides that, there’s plenty of free material to read through on the website already.

But what am I going to do now?

Well, I’m testing out something new and I wish to give these things away as prizes, free of charge. A bit of an experiment to see who exactly is reading my blog and an endeavour that will hopefully prove useful to my readers. I’m busy working away on these things as we speak.

So here’s all I’m asking of you, if you would like to participate and I will update you on everything as I proceed. Please comment on this post. This post only titled, ‘Free Prizes’, with a mailing address and I will send you something in the mail.

I can’t give away everything. I can only say it’s a surprise and you’ll have to see what it is. I can tell you what it isn’t. It isn’t one of my already published books and it’s nothing dangerous. They do take time to make, so you’ll have to be patient as I make them.

I can only give away a limited number of them. So first in, first served. One per country, two if you’re lucky. And yes, I’m very grateful for those who participate. Please participate in this project. It will be fun… Or at least it will be a journey.

I will not publish your address or post your comment containing your address for your own security reasons. I have published my own identity on this website if you have any concerns of your own.

Please comment on this post containing your name and full postal address. I am willing to send the prizes internationally, but for this you will have to provide the full international address that I will have to use.

Kind regards,

Arie de Bruyn
