Free Short Story–Walk a Mile

3 Oct

My short story, “Walk a Mile,” is now available as a free download on Smashwords. It’s also available for 99 cents at Amazon, but I expect that price will drop to free as well once Amazon gets its bots to work figuring out that a competitor has the story at a cheaper price.

Like some of my other work, this one is set in 1940s California. The story centers around a young man who discovers that the girl he’s had a crush on for years is actually more than she’s seemed to be. There are dark, alien forces at work in the night, and the protagonist has no idea what he’s about to get himself into.

Here’s the blurb:

The girl of his dreams was out of sight.
Then he discovered she was out of this world.

Mike Parker has always had it bad for Ronnie Clark, the prettiest girl in town, but she’s never given him a second look. Not until tonight anyway.

When Ronnie climbs out of her father’s broken down pick-up looking for help, Mike thinks he’s in the right place at the right time.

But he’s about to find out that Ronnie Clark isn’t what she seems. He’s about to get to know her much, much better, and he’s about to find out how far out of this world she is.

If you’d like to read the opening paragraphs of the story, you can find a sample here.

Or you can just download it now at Amazon for 99 cents.

And at Smashwords for free.

If you read and enjoy, I’d be grateful if  you’d post a quick review at the site you downloaded from!
