My birthday was on Saturday, and I just have to share the awesomeness that is my parents. Here is a taste of the joy that was in the box they gave me:
Yeah, I'm very happy right now. My reading is taken care of for the next month at least. Ok, so more than that, but the point is I'm set! All these books I've been dying and aching to read and I is a po' chil' but now I have them and can read them and them will make me happy more a lot! I loves my flamly.
Ok, now for business. *Ahem*. I've said I'm going to be indie publishing a short story collection, and that I'll be giving one sample story from the collection away for free. Well, guess what time it is. It's free story time. The story is formatted and all ready for me to press upload on Amazon KDP. So those of you with kindles or kindle apps for iPads and other such gadgetness can get my story for free. I know its the moment you've all been waiting for. Ok maybe not, but I've been waiting for it. I'm ready to have my name on peoples kindles. I know short stories aren't going to give me any huge sales or publicity perks or anything like that, but I've had these stories with me for a long time. They are part of me, and I want them to go to good homes. Which is why I'm giving them to you.
The story that will be available starting TOMORROW! is one called "Gabby." You guys know me through my blog, but I want you to know me through my fiction too. There are some truths only fiction can tell, and that's why I write stories. "Gabby", though the main character is younger than I typically write, is a good representation of the kinds of stories I like and generally go for. I'm going to leave it at that, you'll have to come back tomorrow for more information.
