New! Swag in the Merch Store!
You can now get my t-shirts and hoodies on Amazon and from my own store (not Amazon). In time I'll be adding more designs like 'Dead on Doughnuts' and 'Cupcaked Crime' linked to my book titles. Another way you can support Free Book Friday should you wish to. Plenty of sizes and colours available for each design. It might take a little while for the designs to go live across different products and countries right now due to Amazon being busy with Coronavirus things. These are from my Bertram Bile series, apart from the first one which you might recognise as me with my three naughty kittens and my dog Isla.
A Different Kind of Freebie You Might Like? £2000 Worth of Stocks for £1
If you are frugal person like I am then you probably like to grab a bargain. Coronavirus has massively hit the stock market and stocks are around the same price as they were in the 1990s. I've been using a free app called Trading212 to grab up to £2000 worth of stock by opening an account for £1. I basically invited 20 friends to use my friend referral link and each friend got a stock and I received 20 stocks in total which I plan to keep forever as they each pay a small dividend every few months. Yesterday I received 35p for having a Microsoft stock that I got for free. I used the £1 that I put in to open the account to buy 'fractional shares' for 5p each in other 100 other dividend paying stock and used the 35p from this month's Microsoft dividend to buy more fractional shares. My plan is to use the stock and dividends to fund my old age by living off the dividend payments each month eventually. Plus the stock will continue to go up in value over time. I think the Trading212 app and friend referral only works for the UK, but there are similar setups for Webull and Robinhood if you are in the US, and I believe that Webull gives you two free stocks worth up to £1400 when you open a free account. With Robinhood you can get up to $1000 worth of free stocks. So it is definitely worth looking into if you need some extra cash long term, or for retirement, plus you can always sell the free stock and take out the money if you want to.

My Children's Charity Oceans Project
Royalties from my books and Kindle Unlimited page reads, as well as money raised through Amazon Smile UK is used by my UK registered charity Oceans Project. These funds provide environmental and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) education expeditions for young people aged 5-25 from around the world who are disadvantaged due to gender, poverty, war, disability, natural disaster, or isolation. Expeditions include shark conservation in Belize, climate change research in the Canadian Arctic, coral reef conservation in Australia, and Amazon River conservation in Ecuador. In the future I plan to organise one off expeditions for my readers to join me on similar citizen science expeditions.
What I Watched on Netflix This Week
My internet was down for much of the week so I didn't get to watch too much, but I've just started on series 2 of Sex Education which is getting better with each episode as the characters start to reveal more of themselves. I've not finished The English Game yet (which I'm in in case you want to see if you can spot me!). I haven't finished The Alienist either as I've been fancying lighter hearted things. The Good Place took me a few episodes to get into, but I'm quite enjoying that for easy going viewing. I also watched a movie called Justine.
