Golden Age SF and a melancholy take on Walter Mitty

My newest story is available on Smashwords. It's a mix of Golden Age space opera and Walter Mitty daydreams (more like the James Thurber short story -- not the movie adaptations!), but with a somewhat dark view.

It's priced at $1.99 but you can get it for free until June 13th by using coupon code FW88B at checkout.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/542434

And if you like it, please consider leaving a brief review -- they really matter!

The coupon is still good, and there are plenty of copies in stock!

I snagged it and will read this weekend. (visiting family for memorial day holiday) If history is any indication, we will all sit around waiting for dinner then argue (in a passive-aggressive manner) over what to watch on TV, and then go to bed in disgust.

Should be PLENTY of time to squeeze this in! Thanks!

It's not a holiday weekend anywhere as far as I know, but there's still enough time for a quick escape with a short story. And the "100% Off" coupon code is still good!

Coupon code: FW88B

Thanks. I downloaded it but don't know how to send a mobi file to my
Kindle. Can it be done?
Your writing looks very professional. Looking forward to reading it, even if I have to do it online.

First off, thanks, Entlover!

There are directions for downloading to a Kindle at Smashwords:

https://www.smashwords.com/about/supportfaq#kindle


I don't own a Kindle myself, so I don't have any first-hand experience, but I'm sure you won't have any difficulty. In the unlikely event that you do, the Smashwords support staff have always been very prompt and knowledgeable when I've had questions.

I hope you enjoy the story! (And don't have any problems!)

Well, I tried to get it.

I applied the coupon and the price when to 0. Then, when I clicked on 'checkout' NOTHING happened. I was still on the checkout page. It didn't take me to a download page.

I use Smashwords myself, and I've also bought' many free books there.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.
