The 10th Annual Smashwords 2018 Summer/Winter Sale is on throughout the month of July and I have ALL of my short stories up for FREE during this promotion.
Along with all the regular free ones, included for this month only for a big fat nothing are:
The old man treks the same route day after day, looking for something that is no longer there. Something that he lost inside of the Funeral Home has gone forever. Hudson was a man of details and a love of his craft that he had wanted to pass on to young apprentices. In the backroom of his business, he trained them with an unorthodox method to learn how to respect the dead. Not everyone got it.
Dreaming Falling Down
Instead of death, Abraham chooses salvation that is offered by a dark stranger. Given a purpose and a duty to perform, Abraham is left in a dark world where no questions are asked and where everyone lives in fear of the Three Sisters. But the Sisters have caught up with him, are hunting him down and Abraham finally gets to see what is inside of the black boxes which he delivers.
S & M
What beauty is in the basement under the stairs? The true work of the artist, or the true nightmare for the subject? A short story where the thin line between sanity and madness (S & M) is both explored and exposed, as you descend the basement stairs to see his greatest work yet.
The Salvation of Sam
The recently bereaved Jonas heads back to his forest playground to grieve. However, he stumbles across the unlikeliest of beings in his path, an abandoned dolphin. The discovery sets him off on a mission of redemption and salvation, but all that he finds along the path are obstacles which require him to dig as deep as possible as he tries to deal with the loss of Jolene.
A Cerberus Jaw
Clay has long been taunted by the ferocious Cerberus on his route to meet Elsa at the Tea Room. One day the beast finally watches Clay’s life fall into chaotic ruin midst the devastation of the Coffee Bang. The facial anomaly that Clay discovers in the mirror as he tries to cope with ensuing entropy following the event, sucks him deeper and deeper into a black hole of despair.
