Today seemed like a good day because one of my books is free in commemoration of Janis Joplin's passing. Cimarron Man and other stories is a collection of shorts (some longer than others), many of which have been published by literary journals. One story, The Secret Life of Johnny Cool, was so much fun to write, sort of an epic journey of a nomad across the California desert where he meets two runaways from an all-female cult in Joshua Tree National Park. There's language and adult themes, but I just loved writing this story, mainly because it includes an ode to Janis. I didn't start off with the intention to write about her, but it happened, and now it has become one of my favorite pieces.
If you download the book (free today!) I hope you will enjoy it, and please, please let me know what you think. I value your opinion.
Take care and Peace!
