We’re now entering the countdown for my first — let’s say “legitimate” — book release. Catholic Guilt and the Joy of Hating Men is coming to eBook and paperback on Friday, November 30th. To celebrate, I’m counting down with three sample stories from that collection. Today’s featured short is “Born Again at Granny’s Cave”, available in a pile of places, including for free at Amazon US.
And thanks to Old Miser and That Terrible Tackett for some of the links.
