Breaking the Amazon Ceiling

After being up for barely two days and available for free for less than one, Strange Circumstances is currently #4 in Fiction Anthologies and broke the top 1,000 in as little time, at 982 in the Free Kindle Market overall. Lets see how high we can crank this up. I'd like to see it at #1 in the Fiction Anthologies and the top 100 overall. If Strange Circumstances continues to rise, breaking the 500 mark, I will make it free for an additional day or more, so more of your friends can save on it. Tell your friends. Get the word out. It's a collection of great, dark stories that I'm sure you'll love. Over 215 people have downloaded it in less than two days. Lets get it into more readers' hands.

The New Release of Strange Circumstances

I am happy to report that my new collaborative anthology Strange Circumstances is now available in ebook through Amazon.com. Print copies are under review and will soon be available. The collaboration was quite interesting and a lot of fun. When working with Marshall J. Stephens and David Chrisley, you never know what might come rolling off their tongues or fingertips, only to find its way onto the digital page. The two are pictured below attending Dragon*Con and filling up on energy drinks.


To find out more about Marshall's upcoming stories, take a peek at his new site at http://www.marshallmakesmedia.com.

Here is an early glance at the backflap summary:

The future's a gamble. Few people know what they really want, and those that reach it often find that it isn't what they expected. Strange Circumstances is an anthology of stories exploring the predictability of fate and destiny... or rather their unpredictability.

In the twelve twisted tales and fifteen flash-fiction pieces, Strange Circumstances explores the boundaries of our universe to see what lurks in the unknown, hidden within the mysteries of science, magic, extraterrestrials, religion and the paranormal. Amid celebrities who hit their peak and vanish, a tree that grows up from the floor of a moving train car, unspeakable conspiracy, monstrous espionage, and wicked sorcery, there is something within these pages for anyone who enjoys dark tales and twists of every sort.

As an added bonus, Strange Circumstance will be available for free on January 30-31 in a free ebook blow off on Amazon. Give it a read. I hope you enjoy it.

One-liners 76-80

The following are lines from stories that have yet to be written. I come up with them on the fly and whenever the desire hits, then post them on twitter a couple times a week. The following are from the last few weeks. If you'd like to hear more, you can find me on twitter: @westonkincade

One-liner 76: "Tenors have too much bravado. How's a guy suppose' to eat his burger with all that ego and racket," the man yelled. #write

One-liner 77: "Unlike in corporations," muttered the scraggly man, "only cops can truly assess a murderers talent." #write #prompt

One-liner 78: "The men are great fun," quipped the gap-toothed hunter. "Watching them run from my scope is so memorable." #write #prompt

One-liner 79: Sliding behind his wife's chair at the dinner table, the man grasped her chin and twisted, muttering, "Happy New Year." #write

One-liner 80: "Humans," the gopher spat through buck teeth. "They always celebrate three days late. When will they learn?" #write #prompt
