‘Thin Skinned’ seeks reviewers. Free copies available from author.

Thin Skinned:

Thin Skinned Cover

In the barren, unforgiving desert outside Las Cruces, New Mexico, a sadistic Irish immigrant exacts gruesome revenge on the English lord who wronged her family.

Thin Skinned is a very short (about nine pages), gory horror/western mashup and is available on Amazon/Kindle for 99 cents, or FREE if you contact me and ask for a copy!

No, it’s not a western with horses and cattle drives and shootouts and saloon girls. Instead, it’s a character study of an abused woman who carries a lethal grudge and a carpetbag full of kitchen utensils.

And just because I’m feeling rebellious, I am proud to say that this story, which is unlike anything else I’ve ever published, has so far received a grand total of one, one-star review on Amazon:

“Do not read…Would not recommend it at all..”

I’m especially gratified by seeing not just one period but two periods at the end of the one-sentence review, presumably for emphasis.

So here’s the deal. If you feel like reading something short and nasty, very descriptive and also historically, geographically and otherwise accurate in the telling, order a FREE COPY from me by e-mailing or purchasing it for 99 cents on Amazon, and say what you did or did not like about the story, what worked and what didn’t work.

‘Cause how else is a writer supposed to improve?
