Donít like what you see? Remember what you paid for it. Free Fiction
© Dana King 2015
There’s not enough good, free stuff in the world. I may not be able to do much about the “good” part, but I got free. I may have teased you with the free novel excerpts, but below are links to all the short fiction I have published, for your enjoyment. Free. Gratis. Buy none, get all free. Please just remember, I own the copyrights on all of these. So, if you’d really like to share one of these stories with a friend, please send them the link, not the story.
