The single-story e-book crusade continues with the second installment of my special summer releases available to readers for only $1.99 each. You can now download “The Metronome Winds Down” in PDF, Kindle, ePub, Mobi, Palm, or Sony reader format. Just think: for less than the cost of a cheap bottle of beer, you get yourself a nice gritty piece of storytelling.
Here is the plot: What would you do to keep your wife alive? If Pat can scrape together ten grand, he can buy his wife two more months. But he doesn’t have the cash. So he comes up with a scheme to get the money. But at what price?
As with “Job in Williasmburg,” this is part of my little experiment to test the idea of single-story e-book downloads. I’ll be releasing a single-story e-book download each month, all priced at $1.99. I’ll eventually release most of them in a single trade paperback collection. But with publishing models being stood on their head in the digital age, I don’t have to wait to get these stories into your hands (or hard drives in this case). Enjoy.
