Well, yes, sort of. IF you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can download my short story, Church of the Palomino, for absolutely free!
I know. It’s hard to believe.
And you know what, if you aren’t an Amazon Prime subscriber, you can download it for only $1.29. I mean, that’s less than a trip to Starbucks! That’s cheaper than a Coke from the vending machine at work! And at 28 pages (pretty hefty for a short story, right?), that’s just 4.6 cents a page! Such a great deal.
Also, don’t be put off by the whole “Kindle” thing. You can easily download a reader for your smart phone, tablet, or pc.
AND, if you happen to be friends with other Kindle readers you can lend the story to them for free, too.
Come on. You know you want to. Everybody loves a stripper!
On “making it” into the world of comedy.
Sage advice from a comedienne who started her career writing bits for a puppet (Topo Gigio on the Ed Sullivan Show). You cannot afford to wait around for the perfect situation. Get your foot in the door and then your elbow and then, like the hokey pokey, your whole self. I’ve been waiting for a very long time for the stars to align, my writing room to be completed, my favorite pencils to be on sale…yadda, yadda, yadda.
Once you have decided that you aren’t going to wait around anymore, be vigiliant for those cracked doors just waiting for you to insert yourself. You are the only one who puts limitations on you. And, likewise, you are the only one who can strip them away.
Get to stripping, do the hokey pokey, and get in the door!
