On our next installment of Free eBook Fridays we have my first novella “The Tommy Gun.” I self-published this book on January 22 as an eBook and paperback. Today only, until midnight, the eBook is available for a free download. Once a month I will offer one of my eBooks for free in the hopes that those who download it will read it and write a review on either Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are not mandatory, but an honest review will help promote my works and are greatly appreciated. Get your free copy before the promotion ends. Download Here.
I first wrote this book in November 2017 during the NaNoWriMo event, which means National Novel Writing Month. After editing the work, several words were cut causing it to go from a novel to a novella. Many traditional publishers will not publish anything below 70,000 words and this book is just under 50,000 words. I chose to self-publish and have already garnered more sales than my previous works. The paperback is not free, but I do plan to offer some paperback giveaways in the coming year. Below is the synopsis of the book. I hope you enjoy your free copy.
“Government corruption. Hate speeches. A country divided. The world Brent White knew is crumbling. He gets his call to action when a friend goes missing. He trains himself to become a weapon against the new dictatorship. He fights through criminals and concentration camps to find his friend and save lives. He becomes a guardian for the persecuted. To end the suffering, he must stop one person. The politician turned dictator. Ronald Teagun. The Tommy Gun.”
The free eBook this month is Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: The Ghosts Inside. This was the first eBook in the Dollar Tales series, and it featured two versions of one story. The first version, which I had published previously was about a serial killer. The extended version is the same story but with the detectives who later arrest the killer. The extended version offers more insights into the lives of the detectives. The short version was featured last week for Fiction Friday: The Ghosts Inside.
This is the last time I’m offering this eBook for a free download. An updated version of the story is included in my forthcoming paperback, The Morbid Museum, releasing September 17. At the end of 2019, I will unpublish this eBook. I will eventually unpublish the other Dollar Tales eBooks, but I have not decided when yet. If you enjoyed the story, or even if you didn’t, I would appreciate a review. It can be one short sentence and that’s enough. Reviews mean a great deal to me and even the smallest ones help more than anyone could imagine. Also, I may include a portion of the review on the information page for The Morbid Museum.
If you enjoy this story, I recommend you pre-order the entire short story collection. You can Pre-Order The Morbid Museum on Amazon Kindle now. It will deliver on September 17. The paperback is available on September 17. You can pre-order copies of the paperback in my Personal Shop. Books will ship no later than September 24. I’m sorry I cannot get them out any sooner. The Morbid Museum includes a collection of 19 stories framed around the story of the museum itself. All the stories in the Dollar Tales series are included in the book as well as many more.
This month for our Free eBook Fridays, we feature Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry. This is a compilation of all the poetry I wrote from 2002 to 2016. There are over 250 poems in this collection. That’s a lot! Most poetry collections only feature about 50 or 60 poems. Why is this one so large? This was everything I wrote when I first began my writing journey. Most of this poetry is nothing like the poetry I write today. However, I am still fond of many of the poems in this collection and I want to share it with you.
Think of this more like a coffee table book. Read a poem or two then put it down until another time. It could be something for guests to read or to keep in an office waiting room. This free download is intended to build awareness about my work and encourage people unfamiliar with my work to give it a try. I ask for nothing more than a brief review. This could be as simple as “I liked this book” or even “I did not enjoy this book.” The more reviews the book gets, the more people see it in searches. Sadly, that’s how the world works. I hope you enjoy it.
The complete collection of poetry by James Pack. The poetry in this collection was written between 2002-2016. Gripping poems of a struggling youth and fantastical fictional narrative poetry for all ages. Pariah Bound comprises all the emotions and dreams of a young man still discovering his place in this world. With over 250 poems, there is something for everyone in this complete collection.
I had intended not to write poetry after this work. That is why my poetry now is different and I think I’ve finally found my voice.
