Dear Friends

This new eBook is priced at only $0.99 USD. Amazon will not allow me to list it or sell it for free, so if you want to help out a struggling author and can afford the $0.99, then I hope you’ll consider making the purchase.

If you’d rather wait to get it free, then hang on for a week or so and I’ll run a free book promotion (for a limited time).
Either way, I hope you enjoy the book.

Happy Reading!

New Short Story – Coming Soon!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m working on a new book, but it’s going to be awhile before it’s completed.

In the meantime, I’ve had this great idea for short story sloshing around in my brain for some time, but never put the words down on paper (or computer for that matter). . . . until now.

It’s a fun and fast paced love story that I think everyone will enjoy reading. If all goes well in the eBook formatting world, I should be able to release the short story sometime next week.

I’ll be charging $0.99 because Amazon will not allow me to list it or sell it for free. If you want to help out a struggling author and can afford the $0.99,  then I hope you’ll considering purchasing the story.

If you’d rather wait to get it free, then hang on for a week or so, and I’ll be running a free book promotion for a limited time.

More details will be available over the next few days and perhaps I’ll even give you a sneak peek of the cover.

Happy Reading!
