I should also say thank you to any old followers who stayed with me during the long lull!
“Strong Coffee” promo is over but “Boxcutter” will now be free until next week Thursday. Whereas the former was a paranormal murder mystery, the latter is dystopian horror. Both of these stories were written a long time ago and only recently polished into their final forms, though “Boxcutter” was already quite complete when I gave it that last look before it went up. I wrote the first draft in nearly one sitting based on the idea of a boy who comes from the desert with violence in his wake.
I also have the beginnings of a sequel set in that same arid future land, but no promises. I tend to take my time with stories, and that one needs a lot of work.
