I have no idea what that title means. Don't ask.
Today I am debuting the first couple pages of my new "short" story, "Apocrypha". I say "short" because I finished it last night and it's around 14,000 words as of this moment. I know a bunch of stuff still needs to be added, so it might creep up to around 15,000. And let's be honest, that isn't much of a short story. Technically, I think it's called a Novelette. But that sounds really fucking lame. So, I'm going to stick with "short story".
Anyway, since "Apocrypha" won't be totally finished for another couple of weeks, I wanted to post a short preview of the first few pages. This is because the story is running behind (as usual) and so I wanted to give everyone a little somethin' somethin'.
So enjoy. Or don't. See if I care. Whor
In the last month or so, several people have asked for iPad/Kindle/ebook versions of A Kind of Drug. I thought to myself "Sure, how hard can it be? I've already got everything in digital files. All I have to do is put em all together and Voila! Portable version!"
Have I ever mentioned the fact that I'm an idiot?
To get all the text formatted correctly for e-book readers, to create a book cover, and to find a website that would publish to the iBookstore for free took a very, very long time. On more than one occasion, I almost gave up and said "Fuck it, looks like there's be no ebook version after all.
But I persevered. And I won. Well, mostly.
A Kind of Drug: Volume 1 - Subliminal Happiness is the ebook title for the completed version of the book's first three chapters. It is currently available for Kindle on Amazon. The price is $1.99.
As of this moment, it has not been accepted into the iBookstore. However, it is available in iPad and iPhone format on a website called Smashwords. Another couple days of review and it should be available officially in the iBookstore.
Direct links to everything I talked about above are located in both the About the Author section and the A Kind of Drug section of this website.
I hope you've all found this informative and enlightening.
I'm gonna go poop.
