I've just had the last of four children graduate from Flaglar College in St. Augustine Florida. They are all out with degrees now. I have a nephew that is a professor at University of Alabama in the Psychology Dept. who also has a $100,000 loan to pay off.

I graduated and onlyh owed three thousand dollars after I completed my Masters. Talk about inflation. You are in a good place. I was just kidding. You know I wouldn't take the money.....don't you?

Yeah, but we would!
What would a noid do with money?
"Why, advertise of course.
You make a good point. The movie possibilities are endless.
Where would you have them send it? What's our mailing address?
Have them send it addressed to the Author's cerebellum.
Good idea. Hey, that would make it imaginary money.
Imagine that.

That's a great idea, that's given me the solution to something I was worried about.

I've got about 12 short stories that are in total about 30,000 words long. My crime novel at 80,000 is 99c, so I didn't want to price my SS collection the same as I felt I was robbing the readers.

So when it's all been edited I put it on free.

Thanks for the inspiration.

You could always write some more short stories and add them to the collection and post for 0.99. I only do short shorts permanently free (on Smashwords), but they've been driving sales on the other work
