Spanish Needle Free through Kindle KDP

Just a quick note. My short story "Spanish Needle" is a free download for five days through the Kindle Direct Publishing program. You can "purchase" it right here.

This is a standalone story, not part of the Cal MacLamond series:

When a pretty young girl is kidnapped by outlaws along the dangerous road from the Mojave to Kernville, two Civil War vets head out after her in a desperate race against time. 

 This was a story I'd originally written a few years back (try a couple of decades or so!) and submitted to a print magazine. The editor at the time was very complimentary but the marketing manager felt the story was "too literary" for their audience. I don't know how literary this little story is, but it's nice to have a chance to get it out to readers.

This kind of opportunity is probably one of the best things about our new digital age of publishing.


  1. Sounds like a good read. If you're interested in a guest spot on my blog with an interview and highlight of Spanish Needle, let me know. mk (at) mcclintockmt (dot) com.

  2. The sharp focuses or customary size of sewing machine needle (normally from size 9 to measure 18 relying upon the sorts of material you are working with) generally are useful for use with woven textures.
