I'm Offering to Gift You One of My Short Stories

Kindle readers. I want to send you a gift card for one of my $0.99 short works of fiction (one is actually 10,000 words).

Below find description of each of the four stories. Leave me a comment giving  your email address and which title you would like to have and I send a gift card to the first 50 takes. Click on the comments to be able to enter that field.

"Randy Attwood has a gift for putting the reader into the story. I felt as though I had hobbled across the frozen ground and stood in the shadows of the cavernous old house. "The Saltness of Time" unfolds seamlessly, without distraction, from the time he presents his characters to the disturbing conclusion. When I finished reading this one I needed a cup of hot tea to warm up and reflect."

A tale of innocence lost, as two adventurous boys discover tragic hidden secrets and their own true nature. No reviews on this one yet. Be the first!

"...the main gist of the story is about playing snooker. But, like all of Randy's works, that is not all there is to it. I'll say this much - I don't know squat about snooker, but he made the game - which is, I think, a metaphor for other things - very exciting. I won't tell you what I think it is a metaphor for; I'll let you draw your own conclusions."


"This is the latest short story from Randy Attwood and will bring me up-to-date again with his works. I like to stay abreast of Randy's writings, because he has such a terrific and interesting style, each book unique but containing a familiar voice. Now, I had to wonder exactly how he would make golf interesting, especially in just eight pages, but I shouldn't have worried.
 An absolutely gorgeous story, voluptuous descriptions that just beg for someone to paint the scenes in oils. Who thought that a short story about golf could be so intense, so vivid and so engaging - I literally walked out to the mailbox with my Kindle in my hand, reading."

*I do have to set some limit on this so the offer is open to the first 50 persons who request a story.
