FREE FOR ALL

Repository of free short stories, podcasts, audiobooks, sample chapters….stuff like that. Anything inappropriate for all ages will be marked as such. Enjoy, and pass along!

IF YOU NEED A FREE NOVEL:

Please go to your local library website and request it. Libraries have FREE DOWNLOADABLE BOOKS for any device. They also have FREE HARDCOVER novels you can check out for weeks and months. They’ll even pull the book for you and put it on a special shelf for you to come pick up. You don’t ever have to talk to a human being if you don’t want to. Again: FREE. Please don’t go looking for free pirated downloads, as that hurts my career and the career of every author you do it to. Then we can’t write more books. Thank you.

BIGFOOT
