"The Present" Free On Kindle

My short story, The Present, is available on the Amazon Kindle today for free. It's funny how certain things inspire a story. I was watching a movie from 1997. The scene was in a kitchen. On the table was a box of doughnuts, and I'll tell you, those doughnuts were huge! I thought to myself, "They don't make them that big any more, and on top of that, they cost more!"

That was the inspiration for this eBook. It made me think about how the same can be said now of the past, and more in the future as we look to what is now our present. I took the idea, wrapped it around a man who has a good life but has complaints about it. As you read the story, you'll notice the reference to the inspiration. But more importantly, you'll no doubt come to appreciate your own life and understand that you should never take the little things for granted.

Come back tomorrow to find out the latest free or discounted offer for my ebooks.


Miles Gray has a wonderful life that he has refused to recognize. One day, he receives a present from a friend that is strange and peculiar. Unable to resist the present, Miles goes on a journey that he never could have imagined and that will change his life forever.

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
