It has been a long, long time since I have sent out an update on Inkshares. That is not to say I haven’t been busy; I certainly have been. I have been busy working on the sequel to "Eden M51." But that’s not why I am sending this update. I wanted to tell you all is that I recently self-published a short story ("Laster") which can be downloaded for FREE at all the popular e-book retailers (Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, etc.).
This short story is something I wrote about three years ago but never published because it lacked a cover. Well, last summer I pulled out my (very) old set of acrylic paints and decided to have a go at it myself. While I was a bit rusty, I can say I’m not dissatisfied with the result. It captures the retro sci-fi look I had hoped for. So what is "Laster" about? Here is the book blurb:
"Leroy was never the best student at school but he was never the worst either. School was always about not standing out, not drawing attention to yourself. Especially since his father lost his job and became a migrant worker. But when his father gets relocated to the mines on Mars, Leroy discovers that nothing on Earth prepared him for a world where just the air alone can kill you. And being different from the other kids at school? Well, let’s just say Leroy doesn’t want that. Leroy doesn’t want that at all."
Below is the Amazon link to the story. I hope you all will take a moment to download and read at your leisure. That is all.
