The free download for May is my latest eBook Dollar Tales from the Morbid Museum: Creatures. Creatures features 4 short stories, one of which is previously unpublished. Tales of aliens, urban legends, science experiments, and giant turtles skilled in marital arts. These stories among others are to be featured in the full collection of short stories titled “The Morbid Museum.” The release date is pending. Be sure to check out the other books in the Dollar Tales series, “The Ghosts Inside” and “Flash Fiction.”
Don’t have a Kindle device? You can download the free app from the App Store or Google Play and read any and all Kindle eBooks on any device. The eBook is exclusively on Amazon Kindle. If you’re not excited, you should be! This adds another layer to the forthcoming Morbid Museum collection of short fiction which I intend to have finished one day. My goal is to have a few more stories published elsewhere before self-publishing the collection. It’ll be an adventure either way.
Welcome to the Creatures Exhibit. Visitors to the Morbid Museum seek the dark and twisted corners of the world. They are both terrified and intrigued by the unknown. Tales of killers, monsters, and madmen are curated by the Master of Death, Mr. Siris Grim. Mr. Grim collects the darkness that everyone attempts to hide and displays it within the corridors of his gruesome gallery. Who will be next to purchase a ticket and walk the halls of the Morbid Museum?
On our next installment of Free eBook Fridays, we feature my most recent collection of poetry “Men Are Garbage”. This book has several personal stories and a few fun poems. Today only, until midnight, the eBook is available for a free download. Once a month I 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.
Most of the poetry in this book I wrote within about a week. I would call it extreme inspiration or an emotional rage, but perhaps it was a little of both. I hope, in some small way, this collection will help the world. I never thought I would write poetry this much again, but I felt more passion behind this project than many of my other projects. I feel I finally found my voice when writing these poems and that voice has continued into more poetry which I hope to publish later this year.
I also sent this collection to the Pulitzer Prize committee for their award in Verse. I did/did not win. My main thought at the time, “I’m doing it to say that I did it.” Winning never crossed my mind. After sending copies of the book to the Pulitzer, I discovered a typographical error in one of the poem titles and my heart sank. I have since fixed the error and changed the cover, but my pride is still hurt.
James Pack examines masculinity and anxiety in “Men Are Garbage,” a book of poetry in which he reflects on childhood trauma and his time as a nightclub bouncer.
I would like to thank everyone who signed up for my newsletter and giveaway contest. I will send out monthly updates with free stuff and any other giveaways in the future. There is a free eBook download everyone month on the last Friday and I would appreciate honest reviews from anyone who has downloaded my work. This might be part of the next giveaway, I haven’t decided. And the moment you’ve waited for…the winner of the giveaway is Jennifer C. The winner will be contacted shortly, and the signed paperback copy will arrive in the mail within the next few weeks.
If you did not win, there will be other giveaways and since you signed up for the newsletter, you will be informed before everyone else. Congratulations again to the winner! In less happy news, I submitted my collection of poetry to the Pulitzer Prize. Winners and finalists were announced yesterday, and I was not among them. I can still say I tried and will continue writing poetry. Unfortunately, I was sidetracked by so many things that I was not able to writer one poem every day in the month of April. Perhaps I’ll get it done next year.
I’ve decided to continue with posting poetry twice a week from this month forward. It keeps content on my site fresh and so far, folks have really enjoyed it. To receive access to my unpublished poetry, you can subscribe to my Patreaon Page for only $1 a month and receive new content at least once a week. You’ll also be supporting an indie author and you’ll receive my undying gratitude. And wouldn’t that make you feel special? It certainly will. Thanks again to everyone who signed up for the newsletter and another congratulations to the winner.
