Selling Saturday: Smashwords Coupon for “The Black Spot” and Other Promotions

SpotFingerIt has begun…

As a writer of speculative fiction, I find it gratifying (if sometimes unnerving) when elements from my stories creep into my everyday life (usually it’s the other way around.) A week ago, after digging up our rose rosette-infected rose bushes, I took off my glove and discovered a small, dark spot on my finger tip, which has grown slowly but steadily into the black spot in the picture at right.

What is it? Is it possible that there was a hole in my glove, and I have become infected with rose rosette? It seems highly unlikely – even more unlikely than what happened in one of my stories. So – in honor of my infestation, this week’s BlackSpotCoverEx1Smashwords coupon is for “The Black Spot”:

On a routine shift, one of the miners is exposed to something…different. The company doctor says it’s just in his head, and he’s right, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. There may be a Workman’s Comp claim here…

The story is only 99-cents normally, and Smashwords won’t allow coupons to make it less than that, UNLESS you give 100% OFF. So, do the math, and use coupon code WC38X to get 100% off the cover price at Smashwords (that’s right – IT’S FREE!) – it’s good until April 23rd. Here’s the link:

“The Black Spot” is also available in my fourth collection, surprisingly titled (if you haven’t been paying attention): Still Even More Things I Could Get OUT OF MY MIND.

Coming soon:  “Solid People” (at least as soon as I can figure out the title and create the cover and formatting; schedule says publication date is May 6th, so I better get a move on):

The afterlife is what you make of it. Sarah decides to spend hers with some Solid People.
