Read an ebook week promotion

March 4-10 is Read an E-Book Week.

In celebration, I bought confetti. The fact that you can't now see the confetti is damn stinky.

My short story "Garbage-to-Gold Spindle--On Sale Now!" is also free to download this week (discounted from it's usual price of $0.99) at if you use the code REW50.

The short story is a humorous retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin tale which was previously featured in Enchanted Conversation: a fairy tale magazine.

The original reason I published this short story as its own ebook was two-fold: I wanted to teach myself how to do the technical end of ebook formatting while working on a short sample, and I wanted to give "Garbage-to-Gold Spindle--On Sale Now!" a more permanent home when Enchanted Conversation announced that they were closing as a magazine and converting their operation into a much more, ah, slim state of affairs.

Many other Smashwords titles are either discounted or free with the right coupon codes this week, so hop on over and fill up your eReader.

What I'd love to get this week (other than confetti) is a reader rating and/or review on Smashwords,, or -- all three sites have my short story for purchase but only Smashwords is selling it for free as part of ebook week.

Happy e-reading!
