Free Story

Sorry to say this is no What If? blog post. I know you’re disappointed, because you look forward so much to my occasional ramble through subjects I know little about but sometimes manage to fake it enough to write about. This is another shameless (well, mostly shameless, I do feel bad that I have to do it because I’m not (YET?) a big-time writer who has a staff and a Big 5 publisher to do all the dirty work)  promotion, but it’s for something FREE.  That is if you don’t count the cash or credit laid out for a Kindle E-reader which I believe you have to have to take advantage of this stupendous offer. I could be wrong (Really?) What the hell, go into techogeek mode and try it with a Nook or KOBO. All they (the rats) can say is no.

Okay, you can stop holding your breath now. I’m going to tell you the name of the free novelette (Damn it, according to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America I almost had a novella – I have 17,400 words and it takes 17,500+ to make a novella. Darn) on offer this weekend, Jan 20-22. Hell Cop: Sneaker. I know, exciting. If you can’t possibly contain your  rapidly growing obsession to read this fine tale of Hell go right now to www.amazon.com/dp/B006kixrxs and get it, man. You deserve it.

If you’re wondering, Hell Cop? Sneaker? try this – Go to the pages at the top right and click on Hell Cop: Sneaker for an interview with Sneaker herself. She is a Hell Cop, or Soul Retriever. She is hired to go into Hell and retrieve innocent souls sent down by purgitorial error.  Most times she partners up with Getter, a soon to be (if unwilling)  legendary Retriever. See Hell Cop and Hell CopII: The Golden Palace on Amazon.com or at Smashwords.com. Unfortunately, Mephisto, the chief of Helland Security in case you forgot, wants to take over Hell from Satan and thinks Getter is the one chosen  (he is) to stop him because of some silly prophecy and like that. So check out Sneaker and go from there. Reviews are appreciated.

Something else. The reason there’s no What If? post this time is because I’m heavy into a new story that is a sequel to my An Accidental Vampire story (see Amazon or Smashwords again. I told you, shameless) It takes place in 17th Century France, a place I haven’t been, though I used to travel a lot. Besides the previous story I haven’t written in the Historical genre before.  I could use some research help about the life and times of  the 1650’s in France. If you know anybody who lived there back then, or who knows about the times, or if you have any research suggestions, I would greatly appreciate hearing about them.

La Belle France is calling, so au revoir for now. Thanks for listening and for your support.
