When my mother suggested that I try to write a costume drama, I don’t think she meant a short story about three men in fancy-dress at a Halloween party. Therefore I suspect she may not enjoy my new short story, entitled ‘All Hallows’ Eve’.
Recently I realised that I haven’t written anything new in bloody ages, so I decided to commemorate a year since ‘Existence Is Futile’ hit people’s bookshelves by writing a short story to publish and give away for free. The trouble is, giving away things for free is not that easy anymore. The likes of Amazon, and Apple do not allow independent writers to publish their work for free. In fact it massively limits your ability to reach readers. When I first wrote ‘The Story of Albert Ross’ I had hoped to do the same. In the end I decided to put it our for the absolute minimum to enable the story to get the widest possible availability. This time, I really want to do this as a thank you to all of you wonderful people out there that have volunteered your own time to read something with my name on. It means a lot, but mostly it means that you are awesome.
I don’t have a release date yet, so you will have to keep checking back here. I hope to have a final version uploaded to smashwords.com by the end of the week. It will be free, although you will need to sign up for an account, if you haven’t already. And for those of you that haven’t yet picked up ‘Existence Is Futile’, I have some good news. I have added the first few chapters to the end of this short story as a sample, in the hope that I can yet persuade you to invest in a book featuring ninjas and absolutely no jokes about toilets.
