All my books that are five years old or more since publication shall be available for FREE download as PDFs; and all paperback books fifteen (15) years or more since publication will be available for FREE … That is my giving back to society, to improve reading culture in our society, make reading material available to those who can’t afford, and to say THANK YOU!

Many a writer would say that I am moneyed, or I am stupid to give out my many hours of burning the midnight oil to birth the stories I tell free, or that I am encouraging freebies or free distribution of PDFs, or worse still, I am encouraging book piracy. Nay, I am not doing that; and I am not rich, I am actually far from it, a million miles away from being rich.

There are writers who won’t be caught dead giving out their books FREE, let alone sharing the PDF formats of their books; I hold a poles-apart opinion – I want my stories read, far and wide, even if they are not paid for. Sometimes people don’t pirate books because they want to sell those books and earn quick cash from others’ sweat; they just want to share the story they loved with someone else. 

In the interest of sharing my stories, I am not targeting who can buy my books (they are already capable of doing it, and they would buy any time because they believe in me, they want to support me), but there is a section of readers who would want to read my stories, even support me, but they can’t – life demands too much of them to spare what I am asking for a PDF copy or paperback. 

One day, when I am long dead and gone, as per the copyright laws, my books will be public domain work, anyone would be able to cut my name out and paste theirs and publish and sell it as their own. I won’t be there to sue, but circulation would continue. What I am saying is: I DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SHARING MY PDFs. 

Thus, all my books that are five years old or more since publication shall be available for FREE download as PDFs; and all paperback books fifteen (15) years or more since publication will be available for FREE, as long as I am alive, or as long as my publisher/heirs shall ensure my wishes. That is my giving back to society, to improve reading culture in our society, make reading material available to those who can’t afford, and to say THANK YOU!

All of my books available for FREE DOWNLOAD are available on my website, and my publisher shall effect the same Wef. today 07 April, 2020.
