More great free kids books

Friday, March 31st, 2017

One of the nice things about being an author who publishes free kids books under Creative Commons is that people can copy and share your work all over the place – often without you knowing. I understand that for some of you that might not seem like a good thing but the point of doing […]

Download ebooks for free – no really you can!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

As you probably know Crimperbooks is about more than just selling, it’s about stories and about sharing. From the outset you have been allowed to download ebooks for free under a Creative Commons licence on this site (well my ebooks anyway). That means you are allowed and encouraged to download them and pass them around. […]

Do not feed the Troll! Gallery

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

The gallery for Do not feed the Troll! is now available. Which means you can browse and download all the images used in the book. If you re-use them or pass them around (you’re allowed to) make sure you do so under the CC:By-SA licence they are covered under. If you have any drawings you […]

Why do we do these things?

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

I am sitting on a campsite as I write this. We’ve been here for four days and it has rained a large proportion of that time. Welcome to the glorious British summertime. The tent has held up pretty well and we’ve been warm at night. Never the less tempers have frayed as the weather has […]

Writing the tricky second novel

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014

As you will probably know my second book (and the second in the Roboteers series): Do not feed the Troll! was published on 4th August 2014. A second book is always a little bit like the eponymous second album. You spend so long on the first, meticulously pour over the details and then launch it. […]

Give a book day part two

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

In my last post I wrote about International book giving day. I gave a copy each of my first book to my children’s classes at school. One of the nice things about giving is when you are thanked. You don’t do it for the thanks but it’s nice when you get one. The image for […]

Give a book day on Feb 14

Friday, February 7th, 2014

February 14th. Valentines day. The day when we are supposed to celebrate our love and loves. By why do we only celebrate our love for a significant other? Why not celebrate our loves in other parts of our lives? It seems I’m not alone in asking this and February 14th is also designated “International Book […]

Ways to connect with Crimperbooks

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Facebook, Twitter, Google+…we live in a connected world and as Crimperbooks is about sharing it makes some sense to allow you to connect with us and share our stories in as many places as possible. That said it’s just not practical to manage a presence on every Social Media network that is out there so […]

About the cool drawings in the book

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

If you’ve read our first book Sugar the Robot and the race to save the Earth, you may have seen the cool drawings in it. If you haven’t or if you’ve read a version without images you can see the drawings in the book’s gallery. All the drawings in this book are done by my […]

Why am I sharing this stuff for free?

Friday, July 5th, 2013

There’s no such thing as a free lunch or so the saying goes. Except there is such a thing. Sometimes you get lunch bought for you by a generous soul and there’s no catch. It’s rare but it happens. Do you remember being a kid? I appreciate for some of you that’s not too hard […]
