Gritty Literature eBook Sale: Get Vagabonds… for $2.99 and The Love Book for $.99

Calling all eBook and lit enthusiasts: you can now get the eBook versions of both of my short story collections for just under $4. That’s right, my new collection, Songs of Vagabonds, Misfits and Sinners, is on sale for $2.99 and my previous collection, The Love Book, is available for the low, low price of only $.99. You can get them for your favorite reading devices including Kindle, iPad and iPhone, and Nook.

This is a bit of an experiment (for a limited time) to see two things: (1) are literature and short story readers as price sensitive as genre readers, and (2) are genre readers — many of whom champion independent authors in mystery, paranormal romance, and crime fiction — willing to jump out of their typical reading list. I don’t expect to hit any bestseller lists, but I suspect it might yield some interesting results (or prove me yet again to be a blasted idiot).

Click on the links below to get your ebooks. And it goes with out saying, if you like the stories in either book, be sure to post a review on the site you got it from or on any of the book sharing sites such as GoodReads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing.

Six Deaths — six new, six-sentence stories

I’m proud to announce that Six Sentences has just posted a little collection of six macabre tales — each six sentences long — by yours truly titled “Six Deaths.” It’s kind of like my own little EP of Nick Cave songs. You can read the stories via the Issuu embed below or you can listen to the audio versions I’ll be posting here (one per day, starting today). Scroll down to view the stories or listen to the first story, “A Big Top One.” I actually wrote all the stories on my iPhone, using the Notes application, while riding the subway to and from work over the course of one week. Enjoy.

Listen to me reading “A Big Top One” from “Six Deaths.”
