Miserable Holiday Stories and Bike Boys are now available as ebooks at Amazon.(Well, bike boys is, anyway.)

Miserable Holiday Stories features 10 pieces (actually 11; there’s an Easter egg buried in there) which have appeared in various lit journals over the last few years.  It costs a paltry $1.99, and has gotten very nice reviews so far, including:

     – Awesome read!
     – Eclectic mix, dark and satirical, and
     – This #$@!# is funny!

If an entire collection sounds like way too much reading, then Bicycle Boys is 1/11th the fun at half the price!  Which is a real deal, unless you’re good at math.

Just click on the above images to purchase either book.
