Celebrating six years of The Skwib with free stuff

In celebration of this event, The Skwib’s giftmonkey offers you a free copy of The Amadeus Net, a chance to win a Kindle, and yesterday’s un-flung poop.

The Skwib is officially six years old! The first entry in this archive begins in May 2005, and I’m celebrating with free stuff.

As you may know, in addition to writing this blog, I also pen novels of a satirical and absurd nature; in fact, I started the blog as a way to let people know about my books, but I’ve found The Skwib is its own reward. I hope you feel so too! So to celebrate, I’m got a couple of giveaways to share. You can get my first novel for free, and you have a great chance to win a Kindle eReader too!

My first novel, The Amadeus Net, is a futuristic satire that asks the obvious question, would an immortal Mozart have his own “sprouter” snipped off? Do sentient cities fall in love? Find out more at The Amadeus Net, and if you’re already ready to read it, you can go download the PDF for free (until May 31), courtesy of my publisher ENC Press.

And if you’re already sold on the whole e-book thing, then you may be itching to get a Kindle. If you buy my second book, Marvellous Hairy, you’ll have a great chance to win a Kindle Wifi (the $139 version) in a draw. All you have to do is buy the Kindle edition (or paperback), and then forward your purchase confirmation to me at marvellouskindle-at-gmail (dot) com. One-in-75 wins! (If you already have a Kindle, there’s a draw for Skins too. And Canadian and UK orders also count!)

The full details and contest rules are listed here.

You can also get entered in the draw by signing up for my newsletter, The MonkeySphere, or liking my Facebook page. When the latter reaches 2,000, I’m giving away a Kindle to one lucky reader. (And if you’re already signed up, you’re already entered.)

On a personal note, if you’ve enjoyed The Skwib over the years, I’d like to thank you for your time!

And I’d appreciate it if you gave one or both of my novels a try too. I guarantee, they’re MUCH better than the dreck I’ve been slinging around here:

And now, a picture of a monkey, wearing a hat, riding a goat. Caution, your head may explode from the awesome:

Alltop wouldn’t be what it is today without The Skwib. Awesome chimp shot by Riley and Amos.


  1. No idea what I was going to write after watching the epic goat riding monkey (with a hat on).

    I think it was along the lines of congradubloodylations on six years of bloggage 🙂

  2. Thanks — I may need psychiatric help, rather than congrats!
