Fiction Of The Short Variety...

It pains me to say this, but with the coming changes to VAT in the European Union concerning ebooks, I'm going to be making some changes to the ol' blog in January - more specifically, I'll be removing the "Short Fiction Page" and removing the proses stories I've got for sale from...everywhere, basically. It sounds drastic, I know, but I'd advise clicking that link at the top of the paragraph and seeing what's happening with the VAT changes and what a complete mess it's going to turn out to be.

So, with my experiment in publishing on the Amazon Kindle (and other e-readers) drawing to a close and my plans to do more having to be scrapped, I thought I'd throw the links out there one more time and see if anyone would be interested in taking a wee look at them before they disappear from the world for good.

I only managed to get two finished into a state I was happy with, formatted and into the world (both of which can be purchased as direct download PDF files),which I regret, really, because I re-discovered a love of writing prose and I really wanted to do more. For the time being, though, it looks like I'll have to get back on the submissions trail with any new stuff.

Still, those two stories are available for the ludicrously low price of 99p, and here is pretty much everything you need to know about them - including links so you can buy them!

The cover art for both of those stories is by my regular partner in crime Bryan Coyle, who I'm eternally grateful to for taking the time out to do them.

Unless there's any last minute changes regarding the EU's VAT rulings, these will be removed come January 1st. So, if you do want them, it's probably best to grab them now...
