3 Good Reasons To Buy My Books Here

There are 3 good reasons why you should consider buying my books here through this site.

My first book How To Drive Like An Idiot In Bacolod is available for download in both PDF and ePub formats. See my eBook Store page for a guide to both formats. Both are eBooks and capable of being read on all devices whether they be computers, smartphones or tablets as long as you have the reader installed. The readers are free.

As I am an independent author and self-publisher (indie) you may not be surprised to learn that a lot of time and effort goes into writing and producing a book. All of that, and running two websites costs money! The two websites are this blog and my author website.

3 Good Reasons

Reason # 1

Choice! It gives you the reader complete choice. It gives you the chance to support indie authors like me. It’s a bit like shopping in your local high street.

Given the choice, wouldn’t you rather buy deliciously fresh bread from your local baker rather than bread from the faceless supermarket chain? Think of indie authors as your local baker 🙂 Except of course we inhabit the virtual world. You can download our books from anywhere in the world!

That choice is also good for you, the reader. I can set my own prices here. For example, How To Drive Like An idiot is available on Amazon for $4.99. Here it is a regular price of $2.99!

Furthermore, readers in the Philippines will be able to buy it for a specially discounted price of $0.99 for a limited period only – until Sunday April 24, 2016. Apply the Facebook Discount Code at Checkout.

Reason # 2

I get to keep the revenues from sales. I don’t have to share it with a publisher, Amazon, Barnes and Noble or any other online retailer.

Reason # 3

Reason # 2 means that I have more revenue to donate to my fundraising cause – the James Bulger Memorial Trust. It also means I can make gradual improvements to both websites. More revenue also means more work for other independent workers like me. How so? More book covers to be designed and manuscripts to be edited.

Later this year I will be offering for sale right here my new book Undercover: Operation Julie – The Inside Story. In the meantime, my first book (below) is available for purchase right now.

3 good reasons


The book was written by me after witnessing at first hand the ‘road culture shock’ of driving in Bacolod. I love Bacolod, the people and the Philippines. But what is it that transforms many Filipinos when they get behind the steering wheel of a car? Bacolod is known as the ‘City of Smiles’ and it is true. But those smiles can soon turn to snarls in traffic!

And why is it that drivers in Dumaguete surpass those in Bacolod for traffic courtesy and discipline?

It includes a chapter on defensive driving tips that could prevent this happening to you –

Guba ang Metro Shuttle Bus3

Those tips are based on my vast driving experience in many countries of the world. They are also based on my training as a UK police driver and my old job as an HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) driving instructor.

Buy This Book To Save Your Life – Seriously, I’m not joking, if you want to survive in the Philippines, March 13, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I have lived in the Philippines for almost two years. I’ve been to Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Manila, Cebu, Bacolod and Valencia City. Steve’s book ‘
How To Drive Like An Idiot In Bacolod’ covers about 98% of the Philippines. Steve paints the picture exactly how it is. If you plan on coming to the Philippines buy this book as your guide to driving. Pleased, also heed his warning about driving at night – very dangerous. My wife and I have a car, but I do not drive, she does – and I have given up attempting to teach her the ‘proper way’ to drive.He is also correct about the wonderful people here. The smiles are wonderful, in fact infectious 🙂 The Filipinos are wonderful to be with – I should know I fell in love with the most wonderful Filipina. Come to the Philippines and enjoy some of the best people on the Earth. You won’t be disappointed – but don’t drive yourself 🙂
