Ahh, the joys of writing where giving away free copies can be considered a success.

You’ll enjoy it, 3.5 readers. It’s a quick read. It is poignant and sad and it even has a twist of dark humor here and there. And if you don’t want to read it, you don’t have to because there isn’t going to be a pop quiz or anything.

FREE BOOK – THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

Hey 3.5 readers.

This short story is free for the next few days. I’m proud of it, so I hope you’ll download your FREE copy and let me know what you think. If you want to leave a review on Amazon, even better.

What’s it about?

Once upon a time, Evan Brooks had everything going for him. He was an up and coming lawyer and he had a fiance he adored.

Unfortunately, work got in the way of the relationship. Evan felt torn between his profession and his love. His love, Lisa, felt neglected and ended it. He turned to the bottle, became an alcoholic, and lost everything.

He then spends the next 20 years up until the present day drinking beer at O’Malley’s Pub, crying about how Lisa left him.  One night, the actual O’Malley gets tired of listening to it, so he kicks Evan out.

Evan meets a mysterious stranger named Reuben who offers a trial run of the life Evan would have had if Lisa had stuck with him.

Turns out that Lisa and Evan end up having a son who becomes a cruel, totalitarian dictator, destroying America as we know it and replacing it with a heavily monitored and controlled state with a decimated population.

Evan is faced with the choice of whether or not to stick with this new life, one where the world is destroyed but he personally will get to hold on to the woman he loves, or to return to his bitter and lonely life as a sad old drunk, but at least the world will still be here.

I know the decision sound like a no brainer but if someone offered you a just to get back everything you wanted but lost due to mistakes you wish you had never made, wouldn’t you at least be tempted to take that opportunity, even if the costs to the world were grim? Or would you realize that the greater good outweighs your personal needs?

Anyway, like I said, it is FREE for the next few days, so please check it out and if so inclined, leave a review:

Buy My Next Short!

Hey 3.5 readers.

Well, I just spent twenty minutes writing a nice description for you all only to hit a random button and lose it, so let me give you the short version.

Man has fiance. Fiance leaves. Man becomes drunk. Man loses lawyer job. Man sits at bar stool for 20 years, crying about how his ex, Lisa, kicked him to the curb.

Man meets mysterious stranger. Man states he wishes Lisa had never left.

Stranger grants request. Man wakes up to find himself in dystopian world. Turns out in the version of the world where he and Lisa got married, they had a son who turned out to be a ruthless dictator who conquers America, racking up a hefty kill count as he controls all.

Evan is given a choice. Stay in this version of the world as his son’s captive. He and Lisa are forced to stay in the Eye House (formerly the White House) under close surveillance. He’d get to be with the love of his life but, you know, the whole dictator son thing.

Or he can return to his old life as a drunken bum.  It’s no picnic, but hey, at least Democracy is still a thing.

Will Evan put his country over his own selfish needs? Will he even get to make a choice? Get this fine book on Amazon and find out.
