Free Fiction Monday: Stained Black
Simpson will do anything for his art. In a quest to truly understand color, Simpson buys the Alter Ego of a blind man, and begins to explore. Soft yellows, rich reds, decadent browns, and black: every color and no color all at once. But the deeper he delves into feeling color through the sightless Alter Ego, the closer he comes to losing himself. If he hasn’t lost already.

Very enjoyable and disturbing, Kris. Thanks for allowing us to read it.
An an author published on Amazon, etc., I never thought about publishing one of my short stories for free for a limited time on my own blog, but I assume that this doesn’t interfere with the requirements of the e-retailers.
To my understanding, it doesn’t interfere, Cathy, so long as I’m not with a program like Kindle Select or that new Nook program. Thank you so much for the kind words!
