About my libraryI have loved books my entire lifetime so being a collector of many things it's only natural that I love building my library. My interests lie in a very wide genre from a huge collection of golf books to biography, political, history, classic fiction, poetry, art & photography, self-help/motivation, religion and a large health and fitness collection. I'm obsessed with searching the used book stores, thrift shops and yard sales for that rare find. I genuinely try to buy books that I would like to read at least someday. Currently I'm very interested in Poetry and enjoying reading and collecting these books.

Hi Larry,

it's snowing in London today !
Thank you again for requesting When The Siren Calls in the giveaway. Congratulations on winning. I distribute review copies using the industry standard method used by all big publishers. Before I get into the download instructions, here's two free books you can download in the normal way, fast and simple, so please help yourself.

"Erotic Seduction" by Moll Molone (warning, contains adult content.)

"When the Siren Calls -Prequel" by Tom Barry (check price, free in most countries, Amazon US sometimes charge 99c)

Now to the real deal:

To download the full 325 pages of When the Siren Calls you will need to follow a free sign up process. Sorry about that, but the bonus is you will then get free access to hundreds of books, including from best selling authors, so it's worth the bother. Here's the link to go to, hit request, and follow the instructions

I will get an alert you've requested it, and I will "Approve" your request, guaranteed. So, if you only want my book, just enter the minimum data in the sign up process.

So, if you're still with me, you can now get all three books digitally signed here✓&search=When+the+Siren+calls&co... (Just enter Erotic Seduction into the search box.)

And we're done. If you chose to pass on the sign up process, at least you got two free books.

I would really appreciate anything you can do to promote When the Siren Calls. Tweet it, review it, blog about it. When I notice one of my readers is actively promoting my book, I typically post them a free physical copy as a thank you.

Thanks again for bearing with me, and do let me know how the process worked (because I want to make it as easy as I can for other winners.)

And, as a further thank you, if you have a book, a website or blog or facebook page, a product link or anything else you'd like me to tweet to my 3,500 twitter followers, i"d be pleased to oblige. Just send what you'd like tweeted to my email address, or a DM on twitter.

Finally, if you might be interested in a free three night stay in beautiful Tuscany, the setting for When the Siren Calls, check out the offer here

Best wishes
Tom Barry

Was recently given "Balloon Architecture" for which there was no cover image and only 3 copies in LibraryThing.

This message is to inform you I've uploaded a decent cover image; add it to your copy if you like.

Noticed you liked White Oleander, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more before you commit:


I enjoyed looking at a bit or your collection. I am retired and have time to read, and realize I collected the books we share over the past 2 years and have actually have actually read them.

Well, just stopping by to say hello

The teddy bear catalog led me to your colleciton.
