This Friday, the ominous-sounding Black Friday, I’ll be giving away all of my short stories for free. The only catch is they are Amazon Kindle files, so you’ll obviously need a Kindle. That being said, they’re still free. As a writer, my intention is never to “milk” my readers by luring them in with a freebie and then charging them for subsequent books that continue where the free one left off. These are all stand alone short stories that have, I feel, literary merit. So treat yourself, readers. You’ve earned it.
If you like any of these stories (or even if you don’t like them), please leave a short review on Amazon. I enjoy hearing what you guys think, good and bad. And if any of these stories move you, I do have a novel for sale called Canis Major. It’s reasonably priced and can be found in paperback or Kindle form here
Now for the free stuff:
Emily Smiles for April
Emily receives a bouquet of violets for her sixteenth birthday. She thinks they remain in a vase on her nightstand, but they keep showing up in the most unusual places.
In a perfect world, this mysterious phenomenon would elicit a bewildered smile from Emily, but Emily doesn’t doesn’t smile much anymore. Then again, Emily’s world is far from perfect.
Book of Suburbia
In the distant future, the Holy Bible is amended with stories set in twenty-first century America. Book of Suburbia is one of them.
Two young prophets, Austin and Chad, are traveling door-to-door, evangelizing on a quiet Saturday afternoon. When they come upon the house of a deranged insomniac, things get uncomfortable real quick.
On the precipice between salvation and ruin, an unnamed man sits alone in a parked car, waiting for something to happen. Reminiscing about the good old days can only take him so far. It’s up to him – and only him – to choose his fate.
