Thanks arjaybe. That sound really good but I'm not sure how I would do that. My website is greggbell.net. So here's the "Contact" url:

http://www.greggbell.net/contact.html

Okay, if that's a (tiny) url in a Tweet it takes them to the contact page. But I want it to take them to the flash fiction story directly. I mean, from what you're saying, it sounds like it can be done. I just don't know how to do it. Like, where would I put the .epub? How would I get the connecting url to be:

http://www.greggbell.net/downloads/flashstory.epub

I just don't know how it would be done.
You need to be able to upload files to your website. Can you do that? If you can, then the URL would just have to point at them.

I'm getting a little closer to figuring it out. See, a while back I asked a Go Daddy guy if I could post docs on my site. He said the only way was to type on the site or post buttons with links to pdfs. So that's what I did for the excerpts to my books. I also was under the impression that I only got the four tabs (what I thought were "pages") but now it looks like I get the four tabs and I don't know how many pages. I'm going to call them soon and find out more. Thanks for all the help.

P.S. Still not sure about uploading files. They're talking about using a FTP server. I don't know. I'll ask them when I call.

FTP is most likely how it will be done. Hopefully there will be an easy way for you to do it, without having to see the guts of it..

Ah, but that could become the seed for yet another flash fiction story.

I don't understand what you mean when you say "I only have 4 tabs on my website", Gregg. If it's your website, you can put whatever you want on it, surely?

I'd simply have a "downloads" page on the site with links to the stories in ePub and Kindle formats.
Sort of - he is not actually making his website. He is using:

Go Daddy Website Builder v7.0.80

So he is limited to only what that tool will give him.

My suggestion for Gregg would be first to find a new host that was more flexible, then put your flash fiction on your own site.

A second option would be a site like Wattpad where you could join the community and upload your fiction there for consumption.

Thanks everybody!

Thanks for hanging with me when I kept not getting it! LOL I got talked through the whole thing today with a GoDaddy tech. I do get unlimited pages, and I can have direct links to the pages. (As well as a nice drop-down feature (from the "Free Flash Fiction" heading) on the "home" page to help visitors to the website pick a flash fiction story.)

So now I can just put all my flash fiction in there. I really don't think I would've done it without you guys, especially because I didn't think it could be done. Really appreciate you hanging with me and encouraging me through it all.

+to that. In fact I have published 'single' flash fiction stories on both Amazon and smashwords.

The deciding factor was your persistence. Congratulations.
