A short vignette, about 1300 words.
A vignette is not a story, but is a scene. In this scene, a very old man sits in his study and contemplates his end. It is an end he has brought on himself, out of frustration and discontent. And it is an end he is determined to share… with everyone else in the entire world.
I’d explain more, but this vignette is FREE on Smashwords (
and will be elsewhere in a few days, nevermind, it’s been distributed. You can find it on iTunes, Google Play Books, B&N, and even Kobo now).
You don’t even need to download an ebook file to read it on Smashwords — or enter a method of payment, or create a login. Click “online reader” on the Smashwords page, and read it like a webpage. It works fine, I’ve read a few ebooks there that way.
Thanks for reading!
