Free short story "Musings of a Garden" by me, for FREE!

Hello Lovely Community!

I'm attempting to make one of my ebooks free on Amazon, so I made it free on Lulu.com for the iBookstore, Kobo, and the Nook.  If you click the link, it'll take you to lulu.com where you can download the epub for free.  I already have one book that's free on Amazon (Squirrels & Puppies), but I wanted another one to give my readers a little more to love about me. 

What's the story about?  It's a short story focusing on the relationship between plants and insects.  I was thinking one day about how humans and lower mammals like dogs and cats actually communicate quite well with each other given our lack of a common spoken language.  However, I realized that this is due to the fact that mammals communicate primarily through auditory and visual cues.  Insects use chemical signals and pheromones to communicate with each other, which is also how plants communicate with each other.  Thus the idea of insects and plants communicating with each other, much like humans interacting with other mammals.  I felt it would be interesting to theorize what would be said between these two groups of organisms.  It's only 15 pages long, so you'll get through it quickly.  Yes, it will be dark and weird.  Why?  Because this is me. 

Enjoy!

I'm trying to make "Musings of a Garden" free on Kindle, but Amazon won't do it unless they find out other sites are giving it away for free.  So tell your friends to download it too.  Thanks again for reading it.  If you really like it, a review won't hurt.  Tell me what you think of it.

Ah, I just downloaded the Nook app and it works!! Looking forward to reading both books. Thanks for making them available.

I have a Kindle app but no other e-reader. Is the nook a free app, too?

Epubs work on most readers. The exceptions being the kindle and iPad. Technically the iPad takes epubs too but you have to download it from their site so it will go into that Mac language that apple software is based on. The nook and kobo will definitely take epubs

Interesting.

Found it, but I don't know what program will read an ePub format. Can you help out? Is it available in any other form? I'm interested in the other book, too.

Sounds interesting, but I can't find it either.  Must be a tech issue.  I'll try again later.

Sorry, but I can't find the link. Could you post it again please? I'd like to read the story.

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
