My first installment of “Selling Saturday” rolls out with the announcement that my 6th “Out Of My Mind” collection (And Yet Still Even More Things I Could Get OUT OF MY MIND) has been moved exclusively to Kindle Select.
What does this mean?
Well, on the plus side, if you are a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited or the Kindle Owner’s Lending Library (KOLL), you can read the collection (or any of the 6 individual stories within) FOR FREE!
On the negative side, this means that you can ONLY acquire the electronic version of these stories on Amazon (hey, those are Amazon’s rules, not mine.)
This is another in my ongoing experiments to discover a winning combination of sales and marketing programs. Always learning – or at least always hoping…
The collection includes the following short stories:
The Red Barrens
“You have been found a vagrant, and will be remanded to civil authorities.” This pronouncement following her husband’s death from Agent Purple puts Mabel Jeffers on the Edge, where she’s forced to play her part in terraforming a resistant planet with that same Agent Purple. But there are things that are worse than death – things that could drive her over The Edge and into The Barrens…
How would you like to be abducted by alien mantises for some live
entertainment, and that just because of your namesake? Jack Dempsey feels ‘boxed’ in when he’s forced to carry on the family name, and certainly doesn’t want to become part of the Krills’ warped mating ritual. It’s hard to live up to your ancestors.
Look Both Ways
Even if you knew every twist and turn of their potential timelines, would your children listen?
The Final Ending?
Faced with a seemingly immutable fate written by a hard-hearted author, what would you do? John Charming wants desperately to rescue his true love, but the creator of his particular story expects John to just sit back
and accept his destiny. John has other plans.
Could a Messier object be any messier? A government server glitch leaves Max Keppler no time to react to the comet barreling toward his and Rebecca’s asteroid claim. See Max deal with an uppity A.I., an unhelpful helpdesk, and a comet named Napoleon as he works to minimize the impact of this sudden impact on their already shaky relationship.
The Wolves Will Come
How will you answer when they are at your door?
The Tribe is leaving their world for a new home, but Bear is too old to make the journey. It is of no real consequence – neither is it in him to run from his enemies, nor to abandon his heart’s home. It’s just a matter of time before the Exiled find him – or will age and the wolves get to him first?
These stories are also available individually (and ONLY) at Amazon. The U.S. link for the collection is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0171YYSNC?*Version*=1&*entries*=0
“Behind the 8-Ball” continues to be available for preorders until its January 15th release:
The clock is running down as humanity struggles to find a new home; they’ve opened a gate into the unknown, but need evidence that their new world is on the other side before they go through. Moses can provide that proof, but how could anyone besides his wife believe him? Sometimes, you have to take a leap of faith.
The preorder is available all over the internet, including:
