Short Story: Desperate Measures

Posted by Shannon Haddock on September 29, 2016 in Jake's Last Mission, Short stories |

I wrote this over a year ago and very shortly after that ran out of decently paying markets that might accept it, so I’m not sure why I haven’t posted it yet. Anyway, the idea for this one come from me getting ticked at a character being stupid in something I was reading and amusing […]

An Experiment’s Results and an Announcement

Several months ago, I made all my works free everywhere I could as a special offer.  I left them free in a couple, without advertising this, since then. I have sold exactly zero copies of anything for money since then. I have gotten several downloads of each title in the places where they were free. […]
