Let’s begin with the Story of the Week

One of Them Has a Rich Vocabulary

You’re breaking up with me?” Kristy asked.

Neil hesitated. “Not really. What I said was that I want to truncate the relationship.”

“OK… as long as we’re still together.”

“We’ll see.”

“But can I keep planning our European trip for this summer?”

“Well…that might be beyond the range of truncation.”

“Wow. Now it sounds like this is a break up. I wanted to celebrate my 25th birthday with a vacation since that’s when I get a nice payoff from the trust.”

“How nice?”

“I’m terrible with numbers. Three or maybe 13 million.”

“Which countries did you say we’re going to?”

Prompt: Truncated

Debuting Tomorrow on Amazon:

FAST FICTION Vol. 2: Man vs. Machine


Sometime tomorrow, Amazon will start selling my newest book. Initially, only the Kindle version will be available. Approximately 90 days later, I’ll have the paperback edition out. Since you’re one of the “special people,” I want to make sure you have the opportunity to buy the book for my super special rate of $0.99. Once those of you in-the-know have had a chance to purchase the latest, I’ll bump the book back up to the “common-folk” price of $10.95.

I’m asking people on my Street Team (and I’ll include you in that elite group) to try to make the purchase around 10 a.m. (Calif time), just so I can try to see if we can make a splash. Below is the direct Amazon link. If you go there now, you’ll see that the book is available for pre-order. I know–it’ll be tough to resist hitting the button now, but if you can resist, please do. I’m really trying to stack the deck with purchases Friday morning.

If you are one of the lucky ones who gets an early look at Man vs. Machine (or “MvM” as the cool kids are calling it), I’d love it if you can find a way to put up a quick review in the next few days on Amazon. Those reviews really help, and you don’t even have to read the whole book to post a review–just enough to let you form an opinion so you feel comfortable sharing it with the world.

All right. That’s all I got.

Thanks for listening.

Scotty out
