a free read

Filed under: free book, Getting Away With It

An extra chapter from the bookDo you like free stuff?

How about free stories?

How about free stories about Christmas? (Yes, I know it’s July. Go with me here.)

Have you not read Getting Away With It yet and would like a free taster of the story?

Or have you read Getting Away With It already and would like another bit about the Haven twins and Stoneguard?

I’ve put up a free read on Smashwords, a standalone extra chapter from Getting Away With It called ‘The Black Sheep.’ You can, if you like, download a copy for your ereader here. Or, if you like, you can read it on my website, here.

I had an absolute blast writing it. Let me know if you like it.

(Thank you very much to Freda Lightfoot, who made this very easy to do!)

  1. Thank you, Julie! I’ve downloaded it to read as a treat over the weekend after I finish this horrendous week at work…(provided I can keep myself from reading it TONIGHT!)

  2. I hope you enjoy it, Peggy, and that next week at work is a lot better.

  3. Julie – I went to download it but it came up as the Bad Sheep instead of the Black Sheep. Is this right as I’m really looking forward to reading it!

  4. Oh no! That’s my mistake I bet. I’ll go edit…Thanks for letting me know, Susan.

  5. Fixed. Thanks so much, Susan. That’s what I get for doing this stuff late at night!

  6. Loved it, Julie! It really adds to the novel. Brilliant.

    • Thanks Johanna. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing it a LOT.

  7. Okay–here is how out-of-it I’ve been this week–I downloaded the story from smashwords (actually resisted reading it mostly because I crashed into bed every night) but didn’t notice it was titled “Bad Sheep”! I think maybe I’ll keep it that way in my reader. 🙂 It’s sort of like the fact I enjoy knowing my Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was the first US printing and had some minor editing lapses. Thanks again, Julie. This is going to start my weekend off the right way!

    • I think I called it “The Bad Sheep” because the book had the working title of “The Bad Twin”. But mostly because I was being clueless. 😉

      And thank you very much for comparing it in any way to HP, even though it’s because they both have errors! LOL.

  8. Hey Julie, I’ve just read it and I love it. The image of the sheep in lipstick with a fag is hilarious. :o)
    I took ‘Getting Away With It” on hols to Menorca a few weeks ago – it went into my suitcase with One Day and Rachel’s Holiday. I read all three, and between them they made my days on the beach pass very enjoyably indeed .
    My copy of ‘Getting Away With It’ now has that slightly bashed and water edged look, and it smells of sand and suncream. To me that’s the sign of a great beach read, I loved it. :o)

  9. Oooh eer! Unexpected smilie faces! See, that’s what happens when I try to avoid exclamation marks.

  10. Hey, Julie; I am a twin, and I absolutely loved this book! My sister and I are completely different although we are identical twins. I could relate to both Liza and Lee while reading this book; the thoughts they had in mind and the questions they asked themselves. It was a really good read 🙂 It was so touching that my face was soaked in tears by the time I put the book down!

  11. Thank you so much Sara! I’m excited that you think my twins were true to life. And (not in a mean way I hope) I am really glad that I made you cry. 🙂 Really pleased you liked the book.
