The Infection Is Spreading: LET GO - Now Available on Nook and Kobo!

Let Go eBook Amazon Kindle readers have been enjoying my latest release, a short story called Let Go, for the last few months. Now, more readers will be able to check it out as the infection my story spreads onto other platforms.

Let Go is now available on Nook and Kobo. I'm still waiting for the book to go live on iTunes and will update once a link to that store is available. If you're a Kindle reader, well, you can still find Let Go at Amazon, as always.

Here's the synopsis:

Widowed and with retirement drawing near, Everett Hart believes he has already lost everything - until the dead begin to rise.

Trapped in a cheap restaurant with a small band of other elderly survivors, Everett is forced to decide if he’ll fight for whatever scraps of a future remain, or if he will simply… let go.

LET GO is a short story of approximately 10,000 words.

Hunter Shea, author of I Kill In Peace, The Montauk Monster, and the forthcoming Jersey Devil, called Let Go "poignant," and "an excellent addition to the zombie genre, a study not in bloodthirsty hordes but the internal struggles of one lonely, old man."

It's Everett's struggle that many reviewers have been most attracted to. In her review, Teri Polen said, "I wasn’t expecting such an emotional read.  Powerful imagery with outstanding characterization."

Amazon customer, Deb Robbins, wrote, "It’s about Everett’s emotional turmoil, so well described that it’s profoundly sad to read... There’s a great deal of emotion packed into this short story, and the ending made me teary-eyed. Excellent reading."

Amazon reader, Bill, succinctly states, "this is how short stories should be done."

Let Go is only 99c. My other books and short stories will soon be making their way onto more non-Amazon platforms soon, as well, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates on those releases, too!
