It's a short story that deals with an F-86 pilot over Korea. I thought I'd publish it for free, but Amazon doesn't let you list anything for less than 99 cents. So, 99 cents it is! I made the cover using Windows Paint. If you read it, let me know what you think, whether good or bad.

Seriously, will check it out this weekend at the latest.

I do not want you buying it if it is going to cause financial hardship. I will send you a copy, rather than have you homeles.

Well done mate! Happily gave it four stars and wished it was longer. I will send you a personal message with my humble suggestions...

How do you read a Kindle book w/o a Kindle?

There is a Kindle app for PC, Mac, Android, Apple phones/tablets. There is probably one for Linux, but I don't know.

Amazon's Fire Tablets (which are Android based) work well too, although I would just recommend getting an Android tablet. Fire tablets are kind of designed to keep you in Amazon's universe, which can be annoying.

Yes, the Kindle for PC is a free app.
And Hein, thanks for the read and the review. And the suggestions. Nice to know another writer thought it was decent.

Thanks, Ali! That Dinosaur book is, of course, for little kids. I'm an artist, and have always wanted to try doing an illustrated children's book, so I gave it a shot. If you have little kids, and you down load it for them, I'd really like to know what they thought of it.
The Horror stories are DEFINATELY, not for kids.

Gentlemen, thank you for the comments. I really enjoy writing and Amazon makes it so easy, with their self publishing apps, to get your work out there.
