Rebooting

They say do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life. In December of 2013, after 26 years of working for 'the man,' I quit my job and became a full time writer. I was finally going to do what I love.

Well, I do have a few free short stories today, and there is a massive worldwide promotion on the Eyes box set beginning on Friday. But beyond that, I don't have a huge party or any big traditions.


So this year, I'm combining the shamelessness of my birthday promotions with the promotion of happiness in the darkest times. Yes, that means I am doing the opposite of what I have done in the past. I am going to talk to …

Short Reads for Shorter Days

If you're anything like me, you may find that time is something you seem to have less and less of as each day passes. And if you're like me, you probably also start out every year with high hopes of accomplishing some pretty big things. Well, friends, I probably don't need to tell you that this doesn't always have a way of working out...
But...
Me and some of my fantastic author friends are here to help you accomplish at least one goal for 2017! A lot of us started the year by participating in the annual Goodreads Reading Challenge. And a lot of us are now looking at the end of the year fast approaching and realizing there is not a lot of time to finish reading all of those books you swore you would. (Book a week? Who has time for that?)
Which is where we come in. The following 11 authors are also short story writers and guess what? Short stories count towards your reading challenge! Take a look at the various books being offered below, ranging from so short you can r…
