Short Story for Sale - The Bunker below Believers' Palace

Now Available at Barnes & Noble and Smashwords
Lieutenant Nixon is a bitter, frustrated naval officer serving his time as a staff weenie in the International Zone. Bored with the monotony of war, he ventures to a secret bunker below one of Saddam Hussein’s former palaces with a quirky German named Hans. Crawling down to the depths of the destroyed structure, he finds more than he bargained for.

The Bunker below Believers’ Palace is a 3,400-word (~15-page) short story about the mystery behind Sadd’s toppled dictatorship.

The actual bunker is a real place that was constructed for Saddam and his goons by a German firm in the 1980s. The palace really did get nailed with JDAMs in 2003

This is my first attempt at self-publishing, so hit me with your best shot. I find that the nastier the criticism tends to be the most helpful. My brother did the editing, and I was able to get the eBook formatted pretty quickly with the tutorials I made for MOBI and EPUB conversion along with getting a Word document to pass the Smashwords Meatgrinder.

But enough with the nerd talk, just read my damn story. If you're hurting for dough and need that $0.99 to buy clothes hangers or whatever, shoot me an email and I'll hit you up with a free PDF.
