KDP Select Experiment: The Bloody Veil

Since I got the rights back to one more short story, I figured I'd experiment with putting it up via the KDP Select program. Most readers here have probably already read about it extensively, but here's the deal: your book has to be exclusive to Amazon/Kindle, and available in the Kindle loaning library, and in return you get paid for every time your book is loaned.

The total money is divided between all loans, but Amazon has consistently reported around $2 per loan. Since that's better than most prices for short stories and you're only locked into the program for 90 day periods, I figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a shot. I'll report more if anything interesting comes of it.

As for the story itself, it's "The Bloody Veil": "In three hours, Hecate will be forced to marry a man she'd rather kill. They both know she'll sacrifice herself to save her fellow witches. But as Hecate considers the bloody path that led her to the altar, she realizes that there is one last chance to escape. A love story with more killing than your average romance."

You can get more information at Amazon or Goodreads.
