“The Truth or I’ll Shoot,” Free Short Story, Smashwords Debut as an Author

 

The Truth, or I'll Shoot1

This is my debut as an author on Smashwords!  I’d love it if you checked out my site and maybe downloaded a free short story!  A review would also be greatly appreciated for this paranormal/detective story, “The Truth or I’ll Shoot,” at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/651691

I just had to do this, even though it required some self-schooling on formatting.  But it’s a great feeling to conquer something new!  Why should I miss out on a whole other publishing venue?  It’s free to publish.  You don’t need an agent.   They distribute to Nook, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, etc.   I’m in!  So, the plan is, when I publish from now on, I will publish on Kindle and Smashwords.  I’ll probably even get my already published books on there when their 90 day enrollment is done.  Can you tell I’m excited?

In just a few days, I’ve had 26 free downloads of my short story.  This is good news.  Users of Smashwords are meeting me as an author for the first time.  I’d love to get a few reviews of my story, though, and that might also serve to help my visibility on Smashwords before I publish my next book, a novelette, to both Smashwords and Kindle in August.  (Yeah, that’s really soon.  You’ll be hearing more about it in a week or two)!

So, why not give this mysterious, paranormal story of an odd family legacy a try?  It’s around 2,900 words, and free.   I’d really appreciate a review.  Let other people know I’m worth giving a look. Again, you can find the free story here on Smashwords:  http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/651691

Thanks!

When I Write, I Share Myself #sequel #communication

SampsonsEyes2Untitled design(10)

I have realized, thanks to a friend’s suggestion, that writing can be a way to foster my relationship with my son, who is slightly uncommunicative. Please understand that when I write some weird stuff! He just gave me advice on knives. 🙂 This may also just keep me from being restricted in my genres. I like seeing things from many different perspectives.  I have had to, in order to understand things my son has gone through.  I am trying to communicate to him that I accept him as he is, even when silent,  but he is part of my world, and I will share my world with him.  (Even though much of it is in my head, but I chalk that up to healthy imagination).  We all carry around stories.      #‎amwriting‬ #workingonsequeltomadeforme  ‪#‎sampsonseyesholdthesecret‬ ‪#‎grittyshortstoryonthewaytoo‬ #scifi
