The Dog with No Name
Imagine with me if you will: a chilly spring night in the suburbs of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Drips from a recent rain fall from roofs while a man and his dog wander the streets aimlessly. So far, everything is normal.
Except it's not. In 2079, government experiments have caused the terminator gene to run rampant: nothing grows any more, and food is in short supply. When we enter the scene, curfew is near, but the dog's master is beyond caring.
Follow along and experience Belfast through a dog's eyes as he faces the biggest decision of his life in just a split second.
And best of all? It's free on Kindle until the end of today only, at http://getbook.at/DogNoName.
I've known for a long time that a series is the best way to gain visibility as an author. While my novels are still stewing, I decided to release monthly short stories set in the same world. Each month, one of the stories will be free. You can go here: http://eepurl.com/bm-bc5 to subscribe to updates when the story is available at no cost.
There's also a companion story, Mothers of Belfast. Later, in the opening pages of the upcoming novel Mariah's Dream, the dog will meet the mothers. In the meantime, writing these "prologues" is giving me a ton of new material and background knowledge about my characters, both major and minor.
