Hi all,
Seems to me there is no specific promo here for small books of under 20,000 words.
Maybe you'd like to throw a link here so we can all see them.
I'll start with my own -

[i]The Shoemaker's Son[/i]

1807. As a young boy, Brogan O'Malley encounters the strange and enigmatic Darcy on the streets of Edinburgh. Ten years pass and Brogan, now a petty thief, meets her once again and is surprised to discover she has not aged one day.

A further ten years later, it's 1827, and Brogan's life has taken a turn for the worse. About to become involved with unscrupulous bodysnatchers, William Burke and William Hare, the reappearance of the ageless Darcy sees Brogan discover a secret that will change his life forever.

Don't know if my short prose counts, but here is it:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Woods-ebook/dp/B005OJZZHA/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2

What it lacks in words it makes up for in amazing pictures (I can say that because I didn't draw them).

Be interested to know what people think about this one as it is a bit of an oddity and I have no idea how to market it.

I just posted a 5,600 word amusement based off my novels. It imagines that my books have been made into a cable series and the actresses are being interviewed about it.

Thank you. Here are mine:

[u]Call to Duty:[/u]
When Rick's girlfriend wanted to meet at their favorite hangout near her home, he wonders what could be on her mind. Probably just another of her dramatic fantasies; he's used to them by now. Surely nothing more than that…right?
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006JCJKWW

[u]Covenant of Blood:[/u]
Jordan just wanted to get along--or at least as much as any normal vampire could get along in today's world. But it was never easy. This was one of those times.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0075CNI5A

[u]Temporarily Away:[/u]
When a friend's mail is returned marked "Temporarily Away," Henrietta Harcourt asks the local sheriff to investigate; he finds the man's mummified remains in his remote forest cabin. Soon "natural causes" begins to look as unlikely as "temporarily away."

"Blue Moon" by Nichole White

Urban fantasy -- 4k long

ZI Mara is an elite soldier in the F.A.H (that's Faeries Among Humans for those of you without fae blood). When an enraged male ghoul escapes the faerie realms and begins on a rampage for Chicago, Mara and her friend, Officer Lee Moker, are the only ones who can stop the monster and save the humans from disaster. However, the ghoul has already taken a large bite out of Mara's shoulder and its venom is slowly rendering her immobile. The only hope for the people of Chicago rests in Mara's hands... and that hope could cost her her life.

That sounds really cool, Nichole! Could you compare it to Butcher's Dresden series? I think I'll get it.

Do you remember (or have you heard about) JFK's famous visit to a divided Berlin? The poem “Peace: War’s Abandoned Grave” tells of that
dark post-war era. In a lighter tone, there are poems dedicated to intrepid sailors, chimney sweeps, mountaineers and an old philatelist. Short prose ranges from Switzerland’s icy Eiger to a wintry train-ride from Moscow to the Ukraine. Reading these 40 pages curled up in front of a roaring fire with a glass of wine, will warm your heart - and all for only 99 cents.
