Just published an essay on Kindle
...and unlike the short story I alerted you to before, this essay actually has to do with investing. It's called "The Peril of Investing Everything in Keynes" and, like my short story, it's available for the low, low price of $1.00 (publisher's suggested price, anyway - Amazon may charge whatever they wish). If you download it, you may notice that it's not copyrighted. It's public domain. Reproduce it and share it with whomever you wish. In retrospect, that's what I wish I had done with The Plagued Cottage.
And to keep my word about making The Plagued Cottage available for free, here it is. (If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll help you troubleshoot it.) Share it with your friends, reprint it, pass it around. Make it the least lucrative, most-read short story in history.
