One of the best aspects of the eBook revolution is the revitalization of the short story. With the advent of Kindle Singles and other outlets for writers of short fiction, writers can once again take a breather from the longer process of writing a novel and just have fun. A short story can be written quickly, but still maintain the same integrity of plot and character as its full-length counterpart.
Which is just another way of saying…I’ve just made available two short stories featuring my con man hero, Todd Gleason. I’ve cleverly titled it TWO TODD TALES and it comes with a fabulous cover (see attached!). The first story, “The Perils of Penelope Pittston” was written for an anthology called CRIME SQUARE, but I’ve revised it a bit. The second story, “The Antics of Anton Ardno” was written at the request of a friend and will appear in an anthology he is editing. The two stories appear for the first time together in this collection.
While I write the next Todd Gleason novel, I wanted to give readers a “sampler.” This eBook-only edition is an exclusive through Amazon’s Kindle program, and will be part of a five-day promotion where you can download it…for FREE. After that, the price will fluctuate.
Speaking of the next novel, at the end of TWO TODD TALES I’ve included a teaser chapter from the next book, called THE CANNES CON. Hope you enjoy it.
