Now scroll down and read the 4 1 star reviews. I guarantee you will laugh.
Really? Can you issue a "Buyer Beware" that the book is short when the book is free?
How can you be disappointed the book was a "short story" when it says, "A short story" and estimates the page length?
I'm flattered people wanted to read more of the story but sheesh!

I was asked by another blogger for a video explaining why I wrote The Academy, the short story prequel to My Sister's Grave that is now a free Amazon download. I've been thrilled with the reception by readers. The Academy is already #1 in Mysteries and Thrillers and a few other free download categories and risen to the top 50 overall in just a few days. Anyway, below is a link to the u-tube video I did for the blogger explaining what it was like writing a short story again. Lots of fun.
You have to get past the first sentence. It's a doozy.

So it's been many years since I wrote a short story, but man I had a lot of fun writing The Academy, the short story prequel to my upcoming novel, My Sister's Grave. Thomas & Mercer liked it so much they decided to publish it and we've all decided to give it away for free, starting today. So below is the link to your free download and my sincere thanks to all of you for all the support and encouragement you have given me and my writing over the years.

As you can imagine, Mr. Leonard was besieged with requests for his signature. However when I approached him he immediately recognized me, smiled and told me to come to the front of the line. He signed a copy of his book for my mom, Patty. It remains in her library today.
Below is an article on five quotes from Mr. Leonard on writing. They're worth reading. My favorite however remains his quote that he only writes the parts of the book that people read.

Okay, so when you're a writer and you get a review like this from an accomplished review company like Library Journal you have to spread the word, don't you?
I'm excited about My Sister's Grave and the reviews have been outstanding. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed researching and writing it.
