Today, I’m pleased to announce that the A & J PEI Treasures 2021 Calendar is free to download. It is available on https://read.amazon.ca/kp/embed?asin=… and through Smashwords https://www.smashwords.com/books/view… on a variety of formats. It was something I had been thinking about for some time. I wanted to be able to have a gift for anyone who wanted one. The best gift is of your time. So, I wanted to be able to give everyone a taste of A & J PEI Treasures and our area. But, I wanted to make it accessible to as many people for free as possible. It has been a learning process because I had not done a calendar before. I’ve learned some more things about e-book format and it’s requirements.
I haven’t been writing as much the last few weeks as we’ve been renovating a room. It was a big project as it required filling in holes in the wall (door hits). Now that is complete, there is other things we have to work on. We’ll have a series on our YouTube channel showing our renovation work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGOu3… is the introduction.
One thing I have discovered is that a free e-book calendar is as much work as any pay to view one. You still have to advertise, you still have to do all the prep work. When you first don’t fit the requirements, giving up seems like the best idea, but I so wanted to do something to help cheer people for the holiday season. Something that anyone from any belief system could enjoy that I kept being realistically unrealistic and got the job done. It’s just freshly released by Smashwords and Amazon has just made it free. It’s been a long haul, but worthwhile if it cheers even one person. It’s a thank you to everyone who has been doing all they can during this time to make it through, who work so others can manage, who work on the front lines and for those far from home, it is a taste of home. Having spent a lot of years away from the Maritimes, which to me is home, I know that even static on the phone from home sounds good.
Happy Holidays to all! Thank you for reading our blog post! Thanks for your interest in A & J PEI Treasures!
