Risen (chiller) available, free shorts

I've uploaded Risen, my supernatural thriller, to Smashwords. It's priced at $4.95. Risen was previously published by Pinnacle Books (under the pen name J. Knight) and it has been out of print for six years. I have the rights back, now, so here it is!

Here is the link to Risen, the novel.

I've also uploaded the five Risen short stories that I wrote to promote the novel. They are included in the novel, but they are also available separately for free:

The Risen Short Stories link

Thanks for giving me space to pimp my book!

Thanks, Jan. I bought Risen a few minutes ago, so I'll go back to Smashwords and download this book. too.

Should I read Risen or Chillers first?

Just slipped 'Risen' into my Sony (courtesy of Jan -- thanks, pal, here's karma to ya) and really looking forward to the read. At a glance, it's beautifully laid out and well covered. Not got into the words yet ... that's for later. Cheers. Neil

CBell, I would leap into the novel first. The short stories are all there, at the end, as a kind of dessert, so you don't need to download both.

Thanks, all!

If you buy the Smashwords version of Risen, send me a message with your email address and I'll send you an ePub file with a table of contents that works with ADE and Kobo, maybe elsewhere.

Just finished *Risen*, after enjoying the free short stories.

An excellent, interesting and entertaining read, a creepy story reminiscent of Stephen King's early days, solid 4 stars from me.

I'll second Roger. A superb piece of writing and story telling -- much, much more than I expected from a book I'd wrongly guessed might be just another horror tale. Highly recommended. Neil
