Free Fiction Monday: Death And Taxes

People often misquote Benjamin Franklin on the only certainties in life—death and taxes. But Patrick wonders about the truth in that. Once young and foundering, he embarked on a quest to challenge life’s inevitabilities. Now older and jaded, he comes face to face with his past, forcing him to question everything he believes.

“Death And Taxes” by USA Today Bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch will be free on this website for one week only. It’s available for $2.99 on Amazon, Barnes & Noble,  Smashwords, and in other e-bookstores.
