I’m happy to announce the release of another short story from yours truly on Amazon Kindle!
My short story Great Gams will be going live on Amazon shortly, and I’m thrilled to show you the cover for it.
Here’s one version:
And, as is my habit, here’s the other one I made:
As with the other releases, this one will be going into Amazon’s Kindle Select program so I can offer it for free for the first five days of its release. After that, the story will go to 99¢ until the Kindle Select period expires.
Get yours while it’s free – watch here for the official release and “go-live” date!
Well, I figured as long as I’m at it, I might as well give the other stories in need of a facelift some help, too.
So, for all to see, here is the new cover for Lucky Caller 7, a short story available in Amazon’s Kindle store for 99¢.
Let me know what you think!
And special thanks for both designs to my loving spouse, who gave invaluable insights and patience during the reworks. Heh.
My two collections of short stories, A Fine Cast of Characters and A Moonlit Stroll, are both now even CHEAPER and EASIER than ever!
Yes, like their author, my two collections of short stories for sale on Amazon’s Kindle store and soon, on KoboBooks.com, are now only $1.99! That’s a full dollar less than it was before!
Go and get yours today!
And, if you enjoy the stories, please be sure to leave a review on either Amazon, GoodReads, Shelfari, or anywhere else you can reach an audience!
…but if you don’t like ‘em and think they stink, please don’t leave me a bad review. It hurts my feelings and makes me cwy. (Just kidding.)
Thanks, and spread the word!
In the next 24-72 hours, my short story collections, A Fine Cast of Characters and A Moonlit Stroll will be available for purchase as epub files from KoboBooks.com!
As of now, I don’t have any links to provide, but when I do, you can be sure I’ll pimp them everywhere I can.
OH, and before I forget: I’ve lowered the price, too! I can’t get the higher percentages from Amazon that way, but Kobo is generously offering 70% royalties at the new, lower price…which is the only price on that site, but still. So, we’ll see how the experimentation in pricing goes.
If things go well with Kobo, I’ll probably publish in both places every time. I didn’t get anything, at all, from Barnes and Noble’s Nook store, so I’m not thrilled about that prospect, and Smashwords seems to stink, so I’ll likely just stick with these three. And I’ll have to see whether Kobo lets me set the price to free or not.
And also, my short story Siren Lake is also FREE all weekend long! Get your copy while the gettin’ is good! You can pick it up here!
So, once again, the two books A Fine Cast of Characters and A Moonlit Stroll will both be available from KoboBooks by next week, both for $1.99 (unless I can promote them with something like the KDP Select program does).
Have a great weekend!
Today, in honor of the almost-launch of Siren Lake, a short story I’m releasing as a stand-alone today (or whenever I can get it priced correctly and published, oy!), I’m offering FREE stories on Amazon’s Kindle store today only!
She danced under the full moon, a vision of beauty and romance from the ocean’s frothing waves. The moon struck in her eyes and captivated me. Before long, our hearts beat as one. But something forlorn lurked just beneath her beauty, something which grew stronger as the moon waned.
I fell in love with her, hopeless and deep. But the moon grew stronger in her eyes even as it faded in the sky toward new, and she insisted I know her. I dig into my memories but she’s not there. And how, oh how under Heaven, could I forget the only person I’ve ever loved like this?
*** WARNING! ADULT LANGUAGE AND SITUATIONS! ***
Lucky Caller 7:
Kelly won a radio contest for the first time in her life, and it’s a dream vacation — a fishing trip on a charter off the coast. Lots of fishing, fun, and sun.
But the crew of the little charter boat is borderline incompetent. The other passengers range from an icy blond bombshell to bald and overweight businessmen. Kelly’s not catching many fish, she’s not having much fun, and she just wants to go home.
When a mysterious storm appears on the horizon taking away even the sun, Kelly gets the feeling she’s headed for more than she bargained for. Maybe, just maybe, it doesn’t pay to be Lucky Caller 7.
Originally included in the collection “A Fine Cast of Characters.”
Again, both of these short stories are free TODAY ONLY, so get them if you don’t have either of them or the collections, also available on Amazon’s Kindle store!
Have a great day, everyone!
Well, I have good news and bad news.
The good news is, I have a new story being launched on Kindle Select today as a stand-alone title. It’s called Siren Lake, and here’s the blurb:
Tam is a curious soul. When she overhears some small town teens talk about a monster in a nearby lake, it’s more than she can resist. Then she finds out the lake has been closed for years. The town’s drying up because of it, and plenty of people have gone missing on or near that lake. What’s happening, and why? Is the monster legend real?
When Tam tries to unearth the truth, the lake ranger steps in to put a stop to her digging. But Tam’s never been one to just give up and go home. She’ll find out what’s happening at Siren Lake, or die trying.
The bad news, however, is I made a typo during the setup and so I’m charging $99.00 for it instead of $.99. *Sigh* I’ll get it fixed and as soon as it’s live (shouldn’t take long) I’ll have links and pimpage for you to tell all your friends about. (You are telling all your friends about my work, aren’t you?)
Anyway, more to come when it’s ready.
