Help me find this Smashwords book

Awhile ago, I remember reading a free sample on Smashwords and now I want the rest of the book but lost the bookmark in my hard drive crash over the summer. It was a horror book, as I recall. It was a short story collection. The first story was about a man who wants to murder his in-laws because they are mooches and he despises them. But it goes wrong and in the end, karma bites him. I did not read further than that. Any ideas?

Do you remember how many stories were in the book? Or any other details?

A hard drive is a horror story in itself, if you ask me! Beware the sequel!

Mooching in-laws, murderous thoughts, a collection of short stories ... jeez ... sounds like reality tv ...

I'm sorry about your hard drive crash and loss! Wish I could help you with your quest but the story's not ringing any bells. Which means that this whole post could be just a thinly disguised way to expose you to my own, free, Smashwords book of horror short stories. But I am genuinely sorry about the crash. Really.

No, that was the hard drive crash.

Quote:

There's a lot of these around. Authors must get tired of writing, so they reduce words.

Quote:

What happened to 'love thy neighbour'.

Quote:
But it goes wrong
How ?

Quote:

and in the end,
of time ?

Quote:
karma bites him.
Not enlightenment, then !

Quote:

I'm not surprised, reading about one's in-laws is enough to scare anyone.

Quote:

Answer all the above and you'll be able to drag it from your memory no problem, or write your own version....It'll be a best seller
