When Turtles Fly

My new short story collection, TURTLE FEATHERS, is live on Amazon! I’ve enrolled it in KDP Select, which means that KDP Select members can borrow it for free, but it costs a whopping $0.99 for everybody else. Hang on, though, because I can make it free for EVERYBODY for five days, as soon as I decide which five days to pick. I haven’t set up a page for it on this blog yet, because I didn’t expect it to go live so quickly. I submitted it, and it was live within a couple of hours. Here’s the link on Amazon, if you want to go see it there: TURTLE FEATHERS by Marian Allen.

Here’s the product description:

The dog Joseph’s stepmother gave him leads him away from his intended route. Disobedience puts a young mermaid’s life into the relentless claws of a crab. A penguin thinks his fortune is made when he discovers a cache of Scotch. More off-beat animal stories from the author of LONNIE, ME AND THE HOUND OF HELL.

You may have read some of these stories right here on this blog, or in other places around the net or in anthologies, but the point of a collection is to … well … collect the stories into one convenient volume. Feel free to click the Like button at the top of the product page, recommend it on Facebook and Twitter, agree (or disagree) with the product tags, leave a review for the stories you’ve read before, and, of course, buy a copy. 🙂

This being Tuesday, I’m posting at Fatal Foodies on the subject of hummus.

WRITING PROMPT: A character sets something in motion that moves much more quickly than anticipated.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Sarah, I hadn’t pushed the right button, so I only THOUGHT it was available in the US yesterday. It’s there now.

    @Marian Allen – Another big secret comes out: I can’t figure how to get the file onto my e-reader. I’m going to have to ask Bub.

      I fought you could access your email from your reader? If so, download the attachment to your Kindle Content file (prolly on your SD card). If it doesn’t show up when you open your Kindle app, go into your file browser, navigate to the file and open it. Since it’s in the Kindle format, Kindle should automatically launch.

      Dear God in heaven. If anybody had told me, only a few years ago, that I could not only write such a sentence but UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANT, I would have hit him (or her) with a rubber chicken.
