Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th


I suppose I would be remiss if I failed to mention it was Friday the 13th. Plus, it gives me yet another opportunity to reuse the above image.

Recycling is good, right?

Anyway, what follows this Friday the 13th is Valentine’s Day. As a special promotion on Valentine’s Day only (give or take a couple hours depending on your time zone), my short story collection, Bloody Love, will be available for free tomorrow on Amazon.

If you’re reading this tomorrow (which would be today for you now), click this link to grab it: Bloody Love

You might want to confirm it is free before clicking the buy link. You know, time zones and all that. I mean, I don’t mind if you don’t mind paying for it, but I don’t want you to have to pay for it if you were expecting to get it free.

After reading, and presumably enjoying it, feel free to buy one of my other books. You can read them or not. Up to you. The buying of them is the important part. ;)

Thank you for your support!

Also, Happy Friday the 13th!

They Say a Lot of Things

2015 February 10th

You should blog, they say.

You should blog regularly, they say.

You should blog every day, they say.

People are hungry for quality content, they say.

Focus on quality, they say.

But blog every day, they say.

They say a lot of things, many of which may contradict the other things they’ve said.

I’ll leave it to the astute reader to figure out those contradictions.

Shouldn’t be too hard.

We’re working with less than 100 words here.

Still under 100.

You guessed it: still under 100.

Getting close now.

But not close enough.


Now we’ve reached 99 words.

The Odds are . . .

2015 February 9th

. . . that you didn’t win the lottery. Sorry.

You had even less chance of winning if you didn’t buy a ticket.

Not that I’m encouraging (or discouraging) your ticket buying habits, rather I’m just pointing out a fact.

But, wait! you say. How could you win at all without buying a ticket?

That’s easy. Someone else could buy one for you.

Then they’d have mix feelings when you won, more so if you didn’t share.

Also, someone could buy a ticket on a windy day and have it blown out of their hand as they leave the store. Then, the ticket could fly around here and there until finally landing on your windshield or in your grocery bag as you carried your groceries into your house. Then, you’d pick the ticket up, thinking it was a piece of garbage but then realizing it was a lottery ticket. You’d think about throwing it out because, after all, what are your odds of winning anyway? Plus, what are your odds of winning when you didn’t even buy a ticket? Pretty darned slim, that’s for sure.

But, instead of tossing it, you could decide to hang on to see if you won anything. After all, it didn’t cost you a dollar. Sure, time is money and checking the lotto numbers takes time, but let’s not get too picky. It’s not like you’re billing anyone $100/hour while you’re watching TV or browsing the Internet, unless you’re a lawyer. But, anyway, so it could turn out that you’ve won after all.

And that would be pretty cool, right? Winning the lottery without even having purchased a ticket? How lucky would that be?
