Half a Person - Available on Kindle
Hey gang, Just a quickie. I was playing around with Amazon's digital text platform service, and found it so easy to use, I figured I might as well put up some fiction on the Kindle store. I'm a HUGE fan of the Kindle, and mine has been glued to my hand since I bought it a few months ago.
A newly edited version of Half a Person, with a swank new cover is available for $1. This is a short story that ran on the blog way back when, but it's changed substantially since then. It's about a man who wakes up with a strange illness that slowly drives him and his wife insane. It's been called very 'Richard Matheson-y,' which is about the highest praise I could hope for.
You can check it out here via the link above.
If the reaction is good, (hell, even if it isn't) I'm going to try to do a couple of short stories a month on the site, hopefully building towards some kind of print collection of all of them down the road.
More in the coming weeks as I race ever forward to Comic-Con.
For more information on formatting for Kindle, I'd recommend starting with John August's blog here: http://johnaugust.com/archives/2009/kindle-formatting-for-web-geeks While you're at it, you should definitely check out his story, the Variant. It's really excellent.
