In the previous post I said I did not have covers for the short stories I had not yet self-published. Apparently what I lack is brain cells.
This caused a round of the usual author-arguing-with-herself. It gets loud, in here. Some people have asked for ways to buy the story, or alternately, pay me for the story (and I had to look up ko-fi, because I wasn’t aware of it. I am aware of Patreon, but at the moment, do not have one.) So I have done two things. Well, will have done two things. Hopefully.
First: I have uploaded the short story, in the .99 cent category on Amazon, Kobo and iTunes. They will go live
sometime within the next couple of days ummm, now. The link to the book page is here.
Second: I have a .pdf which includes the (overly large, sorry) cover and the story itself, Four Attempts at a Letter. It is not for sale, but can be freely read and downloaded (I think you have to “save as” from your web-browser).
This is not a test :). I am happy to offer the stories free for the duration of our various shelter-in-place restrictions, which … don’t look like they’re going to be ending anytime soon.
I wrote Four Attempts a long time ago, and in reformatting it and trying to find mistakes, realized two things: for me, it is incredibly short. And I did not cringe while reading it. It assumes a bit of knowledge about early Israel, but I think, without that clarity, it will still make sense.
My current plans are to prepare and format stories and to publish them on the site every two weeks, on Mondays. My answering of questions or general ruminations, or even recommendation posts, I’ll do on Saturdays. As those are the days I worked in the bookstore, I didn’t write novel words on either, so I’ll be keeping my regular writing schedule.
