A few times a year I send out a newsletter to readers, updating them on books that I'm about to release, or sometimes even recommended books that are in the same genre that I write in. I also give away a free short story whenever I publish a new letter, which will usually take place in the world of the Grays Harbor Series, but sometimes it's another stand-alone horror story that just needs to be told -- in 10,000 words or less that is.

I do respect your privacy, so your e-mail address will never be sold or given away to anyone.

The latest story is Ocosta, and if you signup for the newsletter, you'll be directed to a site where you can download the short story onto your ebook device. Set in the post-apocalyptic world of Grays Harbor, Ocosta tells the story of Dean Porter, an ordinary man who suddenly finds himself immersed in a terrifying existence. After surviving a deadly pandemic, Dean struggles to endure the challenges of living in a world without neighbors or relatives - a world where even the most innocent of people can turn out to be your worst enemy.

You should receive an email shortly after signing up, prompting you to confirm your address before downloading the story. If you didn't receive the email, or have any other problems with the process, don't hesitate to contact me at james@jamesbierce.com
