What’s scarier than all the ghosts and goblins at your door? There’s an election next week.

To try to blunt the horror of the season, I’m offering my anthology of forty, short, political stories Political Pies for free! You’ll be able to download it to your Kindle now through Wednesday November 5. Download it early, and you can read it while waiting in line to vote on Tuesday.

If “free” isn’t enough to entice you, check out the cover and blurb:

NewPieSmall2

Everybody complains about politics, but does anyone do anything about it? Stephen L. Thompson’s attempt to do something about it is to collect forty of his short stories with a political element into his Political Pies anthology. His stories are either politically neutral or equally condemning of the national parties. Instead of trying to sway you to one ideology or another, his goal is to just get people thinking about politics in the hopes a rose might grow out of all the political manure.

So what are you waiting for? Download your copy now, you won’t get another chance until next year.

This weekend I’m having a free promotion for the Kindle version of my third short story anthology Political Pies.  When I woke up, I checked on it and was happy to see that it was #17 in the list of their free political books.  So I sent out a tweet about it being #17 and all.  Afterwards, I decided I should check out the competition, which is when I saw this:

OhThe books on the left are the paid political Kindle books, while the seventeen on the right are the free ones.  At least I made the list.  😀

 

Political Pies sequester sale!

Last year, I decided to try to promote each of my books for a month, starting with my anthologies and moving on to my other stories.  So I’m working on promoting my third anthology – Political Pies – during the month of March, when everyone is sick of hearing about politics because of the sequester.  Joy.  Now part of my promotions are a weekend where people will be able to download the Kindle versions for free, and for Political Pies that will be on Saturday March 9th, and Sunday March 10th.  So why am I calling it a sequester sale?  Because.  😀  Did you really expect a serious answer?

Promoting Political Pies

Late last year I decided I would spend the first three months of this year promoting my three anthologies, giving them a little boost.  I should have realized, that politicians would have done something to make people sick of politics when I was promoting my third anthology, Political Pies.  But what are you going to do.

Here’s the book description:

Everybody complains about politics, but does anyone do anything about it? Stephen L. Thompson’s attempt to do something about it is to collect forty of his short stories with a political element into his Political Pies anthology. His stories are either politically neutral or equally condemning of the national parties. Instead of trying to sway you to one ideology or another, his goal is to just get people thinking about politics in the hopes a rose might grow out of all the political manure.
