I'm a little bit of an idiot, guys. I didn't realize authors were not allowed to list books as free on Amazon. Now, I love Amazon, but that's kind of dumb. I told you guys this was going to be a free story, and I meant it.
So I turned to our good friend Smashwords. After fiddling around on Amazon for a good long time, I've come to the conclusion that Smashwords is actually a good thing in this instance. The point of publishing these stories, as I've said before, is to be as available as possible. By using Smashwords, even people who don't have kindles can read the story. People with nooks and iPads can read it. People browsing the web can read it. And that's what we want for this. I'm going to do the "report a cheaper price" thing on Amazon, so I'll let you know if that works. But today, as I promised, this story is free. The entire anthology is on its way.
So without further ado, I give you my short story, "Gabby."
