lucky thirteen, now on the kindelmaschine.


I  released my short story “Lucky Thirteen” on Amazon Kindle. It’s a very slightly edited version of the one some of you may have read already when I released it on the blog a year or two ago, so if you’ve already read that version, those $0.99 won’t get you anything new except a cover and a convenient Kindle download. If you haven’t read the story yet, then THIS IS TOTALLY FOR YOU. It’s a short story in the “Terms of Enlistment” universe–the tale of rookie Lt. Halley’s first drop ship command.

I’ve also uploaded a revised version of “Terms of Enlistment” that should make its way to all the purchasers automatically within the next 48 hours. I fixed the typos found by readers (and thank you  for the ones you’ve emailed me), improved the formatting a bit, and added a Table of Contents.

The short story is only available on the Kindle right now because I’m running an experiment with KDP Select, which requires that the content stays exclusive to Amazon for a while. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can read it on the desktop, or download the MOBI file to convert it to a format of your choice in Calibre. (None of my ebooks are DRM-enabled, so there’s no copy protection to fight.)

  1. Just finished “Terms of Enlistment” on my Nook. That’s one of the best military scifi I’ve read in a long time. I’m looking forward to the next installment.

  2. Purchased.

    Is there a trick to getting the updated T of E? “Synch and check for new items” didn’t return a version with a Table of Contents.

    You mentioned the next sequel to T of E will be out in May; do you have a date for it?
