My latest short story is now available at Amazon and other online retailers.

Peepr is the hottest new online video platform. And Reywood Foster is quitting his miserable day job to become a full-time streamer. Of course, gaining followers and becoming an online sensation isn’t as easy as one, two, three.

Or is it?

When Foster initiates an open chat session for people to ask him anything, viewer Methisto makes him an offer that is impossible to turn down.

Follow the escalation in this 17k-word story, a cautionary tale for the YouTube page.

That’s right, The Masq short story is three for three days on Amazon. The campaign runs from Sunday to Tuesday.

Specifically: Sunday, April 21, 2019, 12:00 AM PDT to Tuesday, April 23, 2019, 11:59 PM PDT.

It’s three-month stint in Kindle Unlimited will have run its course in May and I will not be re-enrolling it the program.

Instead, I will be putting the story up on other platforms, such as Barnes & Noble, Kobo, 24 Symbols, etc. (I’m still on the fence regarding Smashwords).

However, I’m not abandoning the Kindle Unlimited, and my upcoming novella The Humid will be available through Kindle Unlimited. It releases April 14 and is available for pre-order on Amazon. (The ebook can be pre-ordered, the paperback version cannot.)

My wrists and eyes are burning as I wrap up this final-ish edit of my novella The Humid, so I took a short break to see how my short story, The Masq, is doing on Amazon.

Not great. Not even good, actually.

But I’m neither surprised nor disappointed. It’s a short story, and the only written work by an unknown author, on a website with nearly fifty million books.

I clicked my way over to Goodreads, just to see if there had been any activity there. Two people gave it a rating, four stars and five stars. That made me grin.

But what made me smile was the review that one of them left.

Short, interesting and beautifully written.
This was much more than short story.

This was much more than a review. It made the pain in my arms secondary, and galvanized me to get this edit finished. Thank you, random guy who read my book.

There are only two periodicals where I plan to submit my novella, so perhaps The Humid will be available on Amazon fairly soon.
