I currently have 81 likes on my author Facebook page. Last time I went fishing for likes, I offered a piece of flash fiction if we hit the goal. This time, if we can make it to 100 likes, I'll post a short story for your enjoyment. The picture above tells a little bit about the story's subject matter. So please, go to my Facebook page and hit like, send your friends as well! It's the best way of keeping up with what's going on in my dark mind.
I decided to take a different approach for one of my short stories. I came across a website, FictionArcade, which is basically an author uploaded site for short fiction. They allow authors to upload their own work for people to enjoy. It takes tokens to read stories, and each token costs .25 cents. Authors can charge up to three tokens per story, and they'll get .20 cents of that token paid directly to them. They run contests each month, and the winner of each contest (i.e. owner of most paid tokens) gets 250.00. I decided to give it a whirl and see what happens. So I uploaded my short story, "Mr. Abernathy's Music Box" which is a supernatural horror about a man with a broken music box searching for his drowned wife. If you would like to read it, please go here, and you can find it for a measly .20 cents. Worst case, I don't get anything, then I take the story down and call it a learning experience. Best case, people love the story and word of mouth drives some sales and recognition. Only time will tell.
Sorry for the delay folks, but I've been busy helping my wife take care of our new baby girl! I'll get back to blogging as soon as possible. But while you're waiting, please stop by and vote for what you'd like to see in my bonus post on survival. I'll pick the top three voted items and give you my take on the subjects. You can vote here.
