FREE BOOKS for Schools & Libraries

Free Books for Schools & Libraries | I am delighted to announce my new “Free Books for Schools & Libraries” initiative.

Schools & libraries in Ireland and Lithuania can now apply for a free Paperback copy of Guardian of Giria. Teachers and librarians internationally can also apply for a free Kindle copy of the book.


This initiative aims to:

  1. Provide children with fresh reading material
  2. Give children a passion for European wildlife
  3. Help children improve their English, particularly if it is not their first language
  4. Inspire children to write their own stories


How to apply:

  1. To apply for a Paperback, click here.
  2. To apply for a Kindle book, click here.


Note on funding:

  • This initiative is funded entirely by the author. At present, I am not putting any limit on the number of books that can be distributed. However, should the initiative prove very popular, I may need to revise or withdraw it!
  • If you would like to contribute to this initiative, you can donate a book or a monetary amount here.
  • Due to limited funding, Paperback copies are only available to schools & libraries in Ireland and Lithuania. (Kindle copies are available to schools & libraries internationally.) If you wish, you can donate a Paperback to a specific school or library internationally here – just be sure to enter the school’s name and address in the “Notes” section at the checkout.
  • Figures relating to books distributed are shown below. (Figures relating to Donations are available here.) Please note that these updates are not automated, but I will endeavour to keep the information as up-to-date as possible.
