My first collection of short stories, These Strange Worlds, will be available from Distillations Press in a few months. I could use some help getting the word out on this collection (fourteen tales--seven reprints and seven new works of dark fiction), and I'd appreciate it if some of the folks that read this blog or have enjoyed my stories in the past might compose an honest review of the book.
It's awkward for me to solicit help in a public forum. My approach with writing has always been to write the stories and put them out there. But, if folks are interested in reading the stories, I'd love to send a copy of the book out for review.
Please e-mail me directly at dpowell [@] fscj.edu with your physical address if you are interested. When I get my first batch of copies, I'll send one to the first ten folks that have responded. Anyone else that would be willing to read a proofed PDF, please shoot me a note and I'll send a copy directly.
All I'll ask in return is an honest assessment of the book on Amazon.com and/or any other platform you would be willing to post to.
E-book editions for all platforms will be available later this spring.
Thanks, as always, for dropping by and also for considering this offer.
The cover above is a rough early version. Might change prior to publication...
