Next Free Story Starts Monday & An Update!


First off, the next free story up at Amazon is a pretty good one…and not a horror story for those of you who aren’t fans.

This one, “Lincoln & Booth at the Orpheum” is an alternate history, sci-fi sorta, kinda story.  Basically it examines how I believe certain things are meant to happen, even in an alternate timeline where they don’t happen exactly as we know them.  Got it?

Well, what would happen if Lincoln wasn’t assassinated?  Or at least not how history shows us.  It’s a riff on destiny and fate and how things, some things at least, are meant to be.

It’s at Amazon for free this week.  FREE.  As in not even the miserable 99 cents it usually goes for.  Here’s the link.  Now, go get it:


Now, here’s the update on the last story, “Just a Phone Call Away.”  It “sold” 250 copies during the free promotion last week.  Now, the six of you who regularly read this will remember that the story prior to this, “The Dark Level,” “sold” a whopping 2,550 copies during its free promo run.

The two that went up prior to that also “sold” around 250 copies.  So, something obviously happened during the promotion of “The Dark Level” to push “sales” to the level it did.  And I need to figure this out.  Really.

Well, anyway, this promo thing is helping get my name out there.  I got a new review on “The Dark Level” from someone who downloaded it…a very nice review.

“A steady, flowing story that doesn’t disappoint. Very well written, I could really feel it. I will definitely try his other works.”  Thanks, Enid Wagstrom.  (Real name. Not making that up.)

So it’s working, just as with everything else, not a whole lot of money attached to it…yet.
