The idea for this hit me last night [October 7]. It’s a tiny personal tribute to my (now late) mother’s cousin, who died unexpectedly on Sunday evening in Albany. She isn’t fictionalized in my novels; but “Doreen” is inspired by and combines a variety of relations, and that cousin was one of them.
It’s free as well at all the other Amazon international sites too, of course. It will be until March 12. If you do download it, I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
UPDATE: March 10:
1) We attended the funeral yesterday. It was as funerals usually are – you wish you were somewhere else. The one positive since my mother’s death is many of us younger, distant cousins, have become closer than in decades.
2): About future free promos. The 2nd and 3rd novels, Frontiers and Distances respectively, will never be available for free on Kindle. I think one 100,000 word novel, the first (over a year’s work), is enough. Don’t you? 😉
