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.

         Hello, again. This time I am presenting a pair of gothic horror t shirt designs that I did

          for a client.

           Based on a comic book of the same name which I also did. (There is an updated version

          that I am working on for my amazon.com author page.) But for now let's just focus

          on the presentation below.

           I have seen the t shirts...they are good quality, you will not be disappointed.

                Enjoy

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.
