Perma-free short story of unconventional werewolves at Smashwords, AmazonBarnes and Noble, Kobo, Inktera

Cady and Sam don’t like excitement. Consequently, they love their unexciting lifestyle in the small town of Matthews, N.C. They’ve got a cute kid, good jobs, great neighbors, and as Cady says, their home beats the wheels off their last address. Unfortunately, interruption rears its ugly head when you least expect it.

Feeling sorry for my book…

So I put my KDP select novelette, Hard Changes, up for free for three days.  Then I forgot I had it scheduled until a few days before.  Bad move.  I rushed to put up a post about it then went looking for sites that allow you to put your free book up.  Unfortunately, a lot of them require you to have reviews and at least a three star rating.  Heh.  It has no reviews and no stars. And most sites require a heck of lot more lead time than two or three days.  I did find a couple that put it up for me, but apparently, judging from the number of downloads, that wasn’t enough.  It’s a science fiction story, and even there it’s sort of a niche book.  Or, maybe it’s just a rotten story.  Sigh.

Oh, well.  I have two more free days left.  I’ll schedule those and try to get a little more going in the way of promotions.  Poor little thing’s got a few hours left free today so maybe somebody (or somebodies) will still give it a whirl.

New Short Story

Just published a new short Story at Smashwords.  It can be had for .99 cents. page-21

Tax Time!

It’s that time of year again. Yeah. That time. Tax time. And here I go procrastinating again. I don’t know why I do that. It’s not as if I have some horrible, complicated financial situation. Indeed, my taxes are not hard to do at all. In fact, it’s so simple, I don’t really need a tax program to do my returns. I’ll use one, though, because I’m going to do the free efile thing.

Of course, I have to find one I can use at irs.gov. No problems with the income limit, I’m well below the allowable limits of the $51,000 for some or the $57,000 for most, but some free-file companies have restrictions on age – I’m too old for some – and since I also have to file a state return, some don’t take my state.

Sigh. Well, I’ll find the right one, and hop right on it.

Sometime between now and April 15th.
