Free Apocalypse! (that sounded weird)

APOCALYPSE_ad_jpgHappy Friday, and just a couple things I’d like to mention today – first off, the newest short story collection from the Eclective is available for FREE today from Amazon (and Amazon UK ). This one is seven stories by seven authors all dealing with The Apocalypse, so we figured we should get it out free this weekend…just in case.

Ed’s Casual Friday: Digesting Every Word

Today at Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I go even more casual than usual as I loosen my belt in the wake of Turkey Day, and pontificate about the benefits of taking a day off from writing now and again.
