Reviews! On my birthday!

Okay, it’s my birthday, and all I want are reviews! There were over 200 downloads of my books; thank you all so much!   If you could get yer bad seff over to that corporate juggernaut known as Amazon, and write me a review, even if you’ve only read a few letters, that would be […]

Yet another short story
