That's right. Free. Well, not totally.
I've never written a single story with money in mind. I write to escape, to entertain and discover myself in the process. With that said, do I hope a story will make money? Sure do!
At the end of the day, I can hope all I want, but it's not just on me. A king needs subjects, a God believers, a knight needs a sword, and a story - well, all a story really needs is a reader.
So i'll post some stories for you to check out. Not feeling them? No problem! But if you find yourself entranced in a new world, captivated with a new character or monster, make sure to speak up. Comment, subscribe, follow me on Twitter, hit me up with a message! If readers like the stories, I'll post more and more of them.
Sounds like a win-win to me.
